you will need to remove the 10 bolts from the rear pan of the diff...take out the 1 small bolt that holds the pin that is between the axles....after the pin is removed..push in on the axe you want to remove.....there will be a c-clip on the axle close to the pulling gear,remove it...the axle will pull right out...install in reverse....the pin gos through the spider gears,try not to turn the axle after pin is the spider gears will remain in line,,,mit much easier to put together
