AMC 20 axle shaft removal, confusion
I'm hearing a grinding noise in my passenger side rear axle. I'm assuming the bearing is shot. I want to pull the axle and I've researched the steps on the forum but I'm still confused . Some posts say that I have to loosen the backing plate and some say its not necessary. I believe it that it is the two piece type axle setup. Thanks in advance
The backing plate has to come off. If it's a stock 2 pc axle the bearing goes on from the outboard end of the shaft and the shaft assembly is held into the axle tube by the backing plate. No way to replace the bearing or pull the axle shaft without removing the backing plate.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
