It is a 1992 Chevy Silverado 1500. The spider gears are worn and I am not sure how to remove them fro the carrier,
Expert:  Randall C replied 5 years ago.
You need to start by remving the cover plate. Once removed, you will then spin the spider gear assy till you see a small bolt head, (5.16 inch) That bolt is a special pin type bolt that holds the pin that goes through spider gears in place. the bolt could be tight and strip the head easily so be sure to use a 5/16 socket with only 6 sides and give a quick "crack" of the bolt. If not, you could easily round the head. Once that pin bolt is out, rotate the spider assy and the large spider pin will slip out. The you will pusch each side axle in about 3/8 inch and there will be a horseshoe clip on the end of each axle directly behind each spider gear. Once the horseshoe clips are off, pull each axle back some to slip out of each spider. You do NOT need to pull each axle all the way out of the diffrential. then all you do is start to spin the spider carrier and the spider gears will walk out. It will mkae more sense once you start the job
