This answer was rated:

I have a Kubota tl420 loader.
I need to remove the rear axles to replace the axle seals.
I took off the back cover on the rear dif.
I cant see how to remove the axles.
I was going to rotate the knuckle inside, but I cant get the ring gear to move.
I spin the tire, but the ring gear wont move.
what do I need to do to remove the axles?

Hi my name is***** is your serial number so i can be sure to get you the correct information for your tractor?

TL420 is the loader attatchment. What is the tractor model number from the tractor ID tag?

oh crap I don't know.
where is the tag?

unfortunately the locations vary on different models. Check around the tractor and if you need to upload a picture of it and I might be able to identify it for you. Use the paperclip icon to upload your saved picture.

There is a snap ring on the inside of the drive gear that has to be removed to allow the axle to come out

I need to know how to remove the clip

Hi Kevin. Sorry for the delay. I am not an employee of the site. I have a repair business and am only logged in as time allows during the day and sometimes after hours.. the axle assemblies will need to be unbolted from the center differential and removed as an assembly. Then you will be able to repair the assembly separately.

Ok cool

Pleasure to help

The differential case cover should be removed as well to access the clip inside the gears.

Hi, did you get this resolved?
