Removing Diff Carrier Bearings - What Puller to Buy?

Post by rsh253 » Mon Nov 03, 2008 10:42 am

Can anyone suggest where to buy a reasonably priced puller for removing the bearings from a MB differential carrier?

A gear tooth broke off in my rear differential housing and by the time it was over, the pinion & ring gear, all 4 diff gears, and the carrier were damaged and will have to be replaced. From what I've been reading here and in the TM, it sounds like I'll be having to remove & re-install the carrier bearings a number of times to get the shims right.

Thanks.

I know nothing about this but thought it was interesting enough to post here as it addresses your question perfectly:

However, this is the type of tool, along with it's related accessories, that I've used with fairly good results;
