'85 Plymouth Voyager, Transaxle Bearing Replacement

Q: I would like to know how to replace the transaxle bearings on my '85 Chrysler Voyager. It has a 2.6L engine and a 3 speed FWD automatic transmission. Unfortunately, I don't have the exact model number of the transmission. I have the driveshaft and half shaft removed so I can reach into the transmission and grab the bearing with my hand but cannot remove it.. Can they be removed with a special tool while the transmission is still in the vehicle? If so, what tool is required?

A: When we replace the bearings you're referring to, we do remove the drive axles. Then you remove the plates on each side of the transaxle that hold the bearing races. But to remove the bearing themselves, the engine and transaxle have to be rotated. The front lower engine mount is removed to allow for this. Once this has been done the differential cover to the transaxle has to be removed and the oil drained. With a little work you can slide the final drive/carrier assembly from the transaxle. Once on the work bench you can remove the bearings and install new. Just reverse the procedure and you're done. One other note, you do need to do some press work to remove and install the bearings on the carrier.
