Hey, my friend broke the pass. side axle shaft on his 90 Bronco wheelin today. I have never had a ttb apart but have heard there is a c-clip on one side of the diff. Can anybody tell me what side that is on, or if I am completely off about the c clip? If we don't have to tear everything out to get to a c clip then I will just run to the the boneyard and pick up a shaft and we will fix the bronc at the campsite. (Its nice living close to the hills! :toothless )


Thanks

You do need to tear down the whole axle to get to that C-clip. Sorry but plan on a couple hours at least if you have never done it before. But it depends on where he broke it. There is a slip yoke in the middle of the pass side there so if it broke on the wheel side of that slip joint you can just take apart the pass side hub assembly and pull the axle out and put the new one in.

Thanks for the replies guys. We ended up not fixing it because it was getting too late. It was the u joint that broke and it took out the outer. As far as it looks the inner is ok, but we won't know until it is apart.

Also I spoke with the guy that installed his gears and he said there is a spring inside the diff instead of the c clip. It has a lock right.

Not trying to split hairs here, but the spring isn't in the diff. It's in the slip joint between the stub shaft and the passenger side shaft. I only mention this because if you aren't expecting it to be there it could fall out and you could loose it when you swap out the broken shaft. That would not do anything good for your front end.
