Having problems with your 1997 Ford Explorer AWD ?
97 ford explorer/bad front differential..can I remove it completly with the cv joints and let front wheels freewheel?
Yes is the short answer. Did you blow the gears in your front differential or you going to put a whole new pumpkin in? If you are replacing the entire pumpkin drain it first. Then make sure to support it with a transmission jack first. Remove the tires. Then remover the CV axles and lower the pumpkin. Your vehicle requires a 75w90 synthetic axle lube for a refill. Good luck.
