FRONT DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER ASSEMBLY - REPLACE/REPAIR/ADJUST (Contd)
d. Support assembly under ring gear
(22) with metal or wood blocks
and use a press to remove case
half (26) through gear (22).
Separate flange case half (26)
and ring gear (22).
REMOVE BEVEL PINION (12) AND BEARING
CAGE (28) FROM DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER
a. Place differential carrier (2)
on bench with bevel pinion (12)
facing up. Clamp carrier
b. Remove eight capscrews (29) and
pinion bearing cage cover (30).
c. Use a suitable puller to remove
bevel pinion bearing oil seal
d. Remove pinion bearing cage thrust
e. Remove pinion bearing cage cover
gasket (33). Discard gasket
Remove bevel pinion (12) with
bearing cage (28) and shims (34)
from the differential carrier
(2).Keep shims together for
use during assembly. If shims
are damaged, measure total
thickness of shim pack and note
dimension; discard shims (34).
Shim thickness dimension will be
needed to calculate depth of
bevel pinion in differential
carrier when gear set is
