Which particular pin are you referring to? This is supposed to have the pin like on other differentials that you have to knock out in order to remove the c-clips when removing the axles.

the large pin you have to knock out it doesn't look like it will slide past the gear
Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
Sorry, I meant to say this isn't instead of is.
Normally you just knock that pin out a little then turn the housing over and pull the pin out from that side.
I still don't see a pin though unless you are talking about some other pin.

will it get past the ring gear
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i am talking about the man pin that goes through the differential has two gears on it
Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Is this a electronic locking differential?

Is this the front or rear differential?

I see you requested a live phone call and I accepted but they appears to be a problem.

rear differential I dont see any wires
Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

That pin doesn't have to be removed in order to remove the axles and can be removed from the case after the case is removed from the housing. Here are the instructions,

i am assuming you have to pull the ring gear to remove the main pin
Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

no, didn't you get my last reply? I said, " That pin doesn't have to be removed in order to remove the axles and can be removed from the case after the case is removed from the housing."

Do you already have the axles out?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
axles are not out
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
all i need is the axles out to replace axle seals
Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, let's backup here. Perhaps you should tell me what you are trying to do.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
axle seals are leaking
Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I thought the axles unbolted at the outer ends and then just pulled out.

Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes

That is exactly why I was asking why you wanted to remove that pin. There are no c-clips.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Nissan Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You will need a slide hammer. Here are the instructions for removing the axles.
