I am finding a lot of conflicting reports on the ability to replace just the front (outer) pinion bearing and seal on the 9.25 rear diff. I understand it is best to replace both the pinion bearings and to replace the races as well. But for the short term and for the sake of what I can do in the garage, I would like to remove the yoke and replace the front pinion bearing. I'm just getting a whine and the fluid looks good. I'm hoping it is just the front bearing. It is on a 2016 1500 with the 3.0L diesel. Soooo- can anyone confirm that I can pull the seal and get the bearing off the pinion shaft without tearing the whole thing apart? Thanks!

No, you have to pull axles and diff to get pinion and bearing out . The seal comes out from the outside but that is it.
