On mine, I had to grind a ring gear tooth to slide the cross pin in. Thus, I remove the cross-pin bolt, slide out the cross pin, and then remove the c-clips and shafts. However, I have an Eaton, and not a detroit, so I can't help you out much. I just thought I would tell you mine, just in case it provided any insight.

Tap the shafts with a hammer and push them in as far as possible. Should give you enough room to pull the clip.

On an 8.8 detroit you have to remove the pass side carrier bearing first so you can access the allen head bolt that holds in the crosspin. remove that bolt and the crosspin comes right out. Then like said above, tap in axles in with a hammer to acces the c clips.

yep------you are right. i just found my detroit manual and it gave the hot scoop. take off pass side bearing retainer and then back out the allen bolt and yep.....tap the axles inward to expose the c-clips....WA LAH

clean the allen bolt and hole........go buy some of that $6 a tube red loktite and lock that bitch back in.


thanks!

The above pic looks just like th Detroit from my Dana 35 c clip axle. You have to pull one of the pins next to that little doorway, and then it allows access to the C clips.
