Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
You need to drain the differential oil and support the LH side off the ground, remove tire/wheel assembly and the axle housing/brake assembly needs to be unblolted from the differential case while it is supported by a suitable lifting device. the assembly is then removed for further disassembly and repair.

Axle assembly. Let me know if you need more help
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Dan:Thanks. I raised the tractor and the tire is locked on the left side & cannot be turned by hand power. The right tire freely moves by hand power. The left tire moves under power. The brake pedal for the left tire is stiff. Now I think that the axle may not be broken, but the brakes may now be dragging, so now advise me on the steps to get to the brakes.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
If the axle were broken it would still turn if the brakes were held and also likely be loose. The brakes are the same procedure at they are sandwiched between the axle housing and the differential housing on each side.

These are your brakes. They are friction disks and steel disks with pistons sealed by the o rings you see in the picture.
