It's held in by two braces (can't remember technical name). Unbolt them then slide the axle shafts out and just pull it out.

Or throw a rag between the ring and pinion, hit the pinion nut with an impact wrench. Usually that will force the carrier out.

Pry bar - preferable j-shaped.
Pry on the ring gear bolts until it slides out enough to slide the bar inside the openings for the axles and then pry completly out.

There are these little bolt lookin thingies on this cover plate on the outside...take those off. WAIT ... BE CAREFUL ... there is this stuff in there called OIL <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> It smells real funny and you dont wanna get it all over the place...so use like a drain pan or some container to catch it OK? <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Now ... You still with me??? Once that plate is off there are 4 more of those bolt thingies...only MUCH larger than the first set. Take those off too! (I know, what a PITA huh?) Now the fun part is to get a Big Fawkin Hammer and beat that fawker into submission! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> Just teasin ya man...but thats basically all there is to it <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Before you take the bearing caps off(inside bolts) you want to marke them side to side up and down, Other words they only can go back on one way up and down side to side.

Too funny!

Good point Wheeling Piazza Mark the caps with a punch or something. For instance. Put two punch marks(or some other distinguishing mark) on the left cap and and two punch marks on the left side of housing (on the gasket face). Put three punch marks (or some other distinguishing mark) on the right cap.....

Mark the bearing caps as was said but don't remove them completely just loosen the bolts way out! To force the carrier out if it's real tight put a box wrench on one of the ring gear bolts and rotate the ring gear until the wrench is against the housing then rotate the pinion with a wrench or whatever and it will walk the carrier out. This only works one way! The guys at Richmond Gear use this method and most of the time they don't need to use a case spreader.

Bawahahahaha, what's a case spreader? <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

It's way easy dude, just mark and remove the bearing caps in some way that you know how to put them back in.

Now, with the axle on the floor <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> stand in front of the pinion, take a "BIGASS" crowbar, I usually use a 3 footer. Stick the end in the carrier, and smack it with a sledge.

Then you don't have to worry about'ums toes!

The crowbar way is a pain in the ass. I put a wrench on a ring gear bolt, then turn the driveshaft to put pressure on it. The carrier comes out REALLY easy when you do this!

To put it back, use a dead blow hammer and get it far enough in to get the carrier bolts in. Tighten 'em up and you are done!
