Fix It Right! - Differential Service
Fix It Right! - Differential Service (S1E1)
Demonstrated on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD.
In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an oft-forgotten but important
maintenance procedure: servicing a vehicle's differentials. Most vehicle
manufacturers suggest that this process be performed on regular intervals -
usually 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first - and often after
certain events such as towing. Both removable-cover and drain-and-fill
differential styles are covered, and the instructions here also cover
transfer cases on 4WD vehicles as these are generally serviced via
Be sure to check your vehicle's owner's manual for specifics for your
vehicle, such as how often to perform this service and what fluids/oils to

About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give
do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and
maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real
vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and
shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be
more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there
are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and
most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex
or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment,
and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of
hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly,
and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

find this video helpful, we'd also appreciate it if you "favorite" it as
well. And, as always, subscribe to our channel for the latest news and

How to Change Your Differential Oil (Cheater Method) - Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7L
This is being performed on a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the 4.7.
I must warn all that watch this, that this is not the recommended way of
doing it. The correct way is to completely remove the differential covers,
clean out the inside of the differential, then use RTV to form a new gasket
and replace the cover so you can refill it. I chose the suction method for
I change my oil more than the factory recommends, so I am not as worried
about a little left over residue oil.
Another advantage of taking the diff cover off is that you can inspect your
gears. You would also look for metal shavings, gear tooth wear problems,
chipped teeth, etc.
Warning: I am not a professional and not held liable on any damages to any
vehicle that you work on or have someone work on. This is only for
demonstration purposes on how I have done work on my own vehicle and may
have left out some critical information. Please refer to your dealer

How To Replace CV Boots - EricTheCarGuy
How To Replace CV Boots - EricTheCarGuy
This one is a request from more than one person so I'm happy to bring it to
you. As I said in the video I personally don't see much point of replacing
just the CV boots anymore as it just makes more sense to replace the axle,
that's just how I feel however. If you do want to replace the boots I hope
this video will help.
