How do I replace the front left drive shaft on a Jeep Grand Cherokee?


Answer by  Doug77 (1433)

Remove the tire, brake caliper and rotor. Remove the center nut using a high torque impact wrench. Remove the 3 bolts holding the wheel bearing mount to the steering knuckle. Place a drain pan under the front differential, near the left front axle and the shaft should pull right out. Reverse to reinstall.

You are going to need a bearing puller and you will need to make sure the Jeep is out of four wheel drive. You can then take the shaft out by starting with the tires and working your way in.

This is a pretty complicated process to try and explain in such a small space. It involves removing the wheel along with most of the front suspension.
