grizzly 600 rear axle

I need to change the left rear axle wheel bearings on my grizzly 600. Not sure of the steps. I have taken everything off I can. The axle housing is loose but i need to get the axle out. Is there a clip or something that holds the axle in? Thanks for the help.

Remove the axle nut, wheel and brake drum from the right side and give it a bump with a rubber mallet or something (from the right side). The axle should slide right out the left side.

If it still won't, then it's possibly corroded at the splines that mesh with the center of what I'd describe as the crown gear....if so, I'd hold on until someone more familiar with it chimes in...

When you remove the axle nut and brake drum from the right side, there is also a rubber o-ring or clip on the axle that needs to be removed.
Take a look at the microfiche to see the parts.

If the left side bearing needs to be replaced, chances are the right side does too. Might as well do the fronts while you're at it.

there is no clip, just a O ring that around the axle, now you cant be afraid to break something when you hit the axle because when i first removed mine to change the bearings it was in there tight.

You can look up your quad at
http://www.cheapcycleparts.com
or
http://www.mrcycles.com

I stand corrected, it is an o-ring. If you look up the rear wheel on cheapcycleparts.com, the o-ring is #35 on the picture.

See if this link works:

If you're just changing the bearing in the left end of the axle tube, there's no need to remove the axle. Just remove the hub and unbolt the left axle tube from the left side of the diff (4bolts) and slide the axle tube off the axle. You may have to rotate the axle tube so the shock mount will clear the swing arm, but it will come off. I had to change that left bearing on the two Grizzly 600s that I used to own. That's the only bearing that ever went bad on mine.

I had tried this first, but the tube will not slide off even when rotating it. the trailer hitch gets in the way. Thanks

If you turn it a certain way, it will come off. That's how I changed mine on my '98 and on my '00 and they both had the trailer hitch. You have to turn it a certain way and pull out on the axle just slightly and it will come off.
