Need help. Bearing retainer removal A525

Any tips or tricks to breaking this thing loose? I have removed the 8 bolts, pried on it, tapped on it with a chisel. The thing will not budge.

Assuming you mean the differential retainer on the drivers side, you are going to have to loosen and break free the differential cover, it pinches the bearing retainer in place.

I am replacing the axle seal on the drivers side. So you are telling me I need to remove the differential cover at the back of the trans to remove the retainer, correct? Just want to be clear.

Re: Need help. Bearing retainer removal A525

On my A413, I had to rotate the retainer slightly to remove it. The RTV sealant probably isn't making it any easier. There's a special tool to rotate the retainer on an A413 but I left 2 bolts partially in and used a large screwdriver to turn it.

Don't know if this applies to your A525 but maybe it'll help...

But yours is a MT & mine's an AT but so much trouble to replace a seal???

Re: Need help. Bearing retainer removal A525

There is no need to remove bearing retainer plate to replace seal. Just make sure you don't nick up OD surface of retainer plate when you remove seal, otherwise you could start another leak.

OK, I removed the seal without removing the retainer. Tried to be very careful, is that the oil slinger that I damaged? If so, what can I do now?

Thanks. I had just read about the "special tool" to use so you don't F something up, and when the seal came out that just flopped out on the ground. Murphy lost...this time, LOL.

May be a dumb question, but which way does the oil slinger mount in the retainer?

Re: Need help. Bearing retainer removal A525

I'd have to look it up at this point but looking at your pics I'd presume it was installed with the edge flange facing outwards
,,because , looking at the dent you put in it with the punch or chisel .. it must have been that way as you were taking it apart

Looking at it, I cannot be sure if I dented it or not. I used a seal remover tool and was careful to catch just the lip of the seal. I looked at the diagram, still can't tell for sure which way it goes.

Re: Need help. Bearing retainer removal A525

It would make sense that the slinger would go to the inside of the seal, as it wouldn't do a whole lot of "slinging" on the outside.

Just for future reference, the oil slinger can only go one way. There is a little nipple on the slinger, it has to slip in the oil feed hole on the retainer, then it will slide back and you finish bottoming it with the new seal.

Glad you figured it out!
