Default Transfer Case Seal and Bearings

I am looking for help. I put my truck up on the lift today. Heard a clicking and wondered where it came from. i got it up and saw the arm coming out of the front of the transfer case to the front wheels was slopping around. I shut off the truck and grab it and it could move all around. I suspect it is a bearing and seal seeing it is leaking fluid from this spot. Does anyone know how to change the front wheel main bearing on the transfer case. how bad it is and if you have to pull the transfer case?????

Please help,
Tory

Ok, we have a serious terminology issue and we need to know the year, series, engine, trans and transfer case on your truck to be of much help. Are you referring to the yoke on the front of the transfer case?

It is a 2001 1500 with the 5.9. When i put it up on the lift i could grab onto the front drive shaft and move it up and down. It looked like either the bearing and/or seal out of the front side of the transfer case is shot. Would i have to pull the whole transfer case to get at those bearings and seal or could i do it with it mounted to the truck.Sorry about terminology. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tory

I would pull it . That way you could do a good cleaning on it . If the bearing failed , that means you have alot of debris inside the transfer case that needs to be cleaned out . May even find out that theres more bearings needing attention also .

yeah thats what i was thinking. Can you get to the front seal and bearing by just pulling the front drive shaft? I was thinking that if i could get to it id try that first. Is it possible to change that way??

You should be able to drop the shaft, remove the flange and seal and access the bearing snap ring without removing or splitting the case. If the bearing has come apart you'll need to drop the case and split it to remove any debris.
