I'm planning to replace the CV axle carrier bearing this weekend. Will the Getrag gear fluid drain out when I pull the axle?

Often it doesn't if that side of the car jacks up high enough to stop it.
True, if he just jacks up that side of the car.....I was thinking of a rack thou.

I'll be jacking it up on that side. I had the clutch and fluid replaced a year ago, so I'd rather not have to drain and fill.

Doing lots of work this weekend:
  • Front bearings and hubs
  • Axle carrier bearing
  • Front struts
  • Rear shocks
  • Brake pads all for corners
  • Serpentine belt
Thanks for the info, everyone!

I wouldn't call it pour, but definitely trickle. I would recommend changing the fluid with Ford synthetic fluid. Doesn't the service guide call for something crazy like gear oil every 10-15k miles? Good opportunity to change it regardless.

I believe you referring to the alternative:

Using Mobil-1 SYN 15W50 in place of the OE/Motorcraft SYN Manual Trans Fluid

^^^That's where you would have to change every 10 or 15 thousand miles depending on driving conditions^^^
