Removing axles from D44 with Powr Lok
 
I've removed the axle shafts from my D41, and it was a matter of just removing the six bolts on the end flange, and everything (shaft, bearing/race, grease retainer, etc.) just slid right out.

But now I'm trying to do the same on my D44 with Powr Lok, and the shaft isn't coming out. Is there something that has to be done in the differential to release the shaft, or do I just need to pull harder?

Thanks,

-Paul

Make sure there is not a "C" clip hold'n the axle to the carrier.

Put the brake drum on backwards, evenly thread a few lug nuts on and use the drum like a slide hammer

Would a clip like that be easily visible? Where should I look? I can't see anything...

The brake drum as a slide hammer didn't do anything, either.

There aren't C-clips on the Dana 44, regardless of what the carrier is. Turn a brake drum around, slide it onto the lug and attach a few lugs loosely. Use the drum like a slide hammer.

You will have to rent or borrow an axle shaft puller. It's a big 20 lb slide hammer with a bolt on flange. Are you sure all of the axle shaft retainer nuts off? There could be up to six of them. They are behind the axle flange and also hold on the brake backing plate.

No Dana 44 I have ever seen had C-clips but I can't speak for 44's on the current generation Jeeps.
