Rear Cover and P3 Planetary Module Disassembly
Straighten tangs of lock nut retainer (1) to allow removal of bearing retainer lock nut (2). Remove bearing retainer lock
nut using tool (J37035). Remove lock nut retainer.
Support rear cover assembly (3) so that P3 planetary carrier assembly (4) can be removed. Place tool (J37035-1) over
output shaft splines and against threaded shoulder of P3 planetary carrier. Using a hydraulic press or a mallet, press on
tool (J37035-1) to separate planetary carrier from rear cover.
Inspect rear cover cone and roller bearing (5). If worn or damaged, remove using tool (J3940).
Place P3 planetary carrier assembly on its side during disassembly to avoid possible hand injury.
Remove retaining ring (6) and thrust washer (7) from P3 planetary carrier assembly (4).
Inspect planetary carrier cone and roller bearing (8). If worn or damaged, remove.
Remove retaining ring (9), indexing ring (10), and four pinion spindles (11) from P3 planetary carrier (4).
Remove pinion gear (12), thrust washers (13 and 14), and two bearing assemblies (15) from side of the P3 planetary car-
rier (4). Repeat procedures for remaining pinion gears. Measure thickness and step wear of thrust washers. Minimum
thrust washer thickness allowed is 0.055 in (1.40 mm). Maximum step wear allowed is 0.005 in (0.12 mm).
