Spreading the housing greater amount than specified can cause damage or distortion.


7.- Slowly spread the housing 0.020 in. (0.50 mm) while watching the indicator. Remove the dial indicator when housing spread is complete.

8.- Remove and tag the differential bearing caps for reassembly reference.

9.- Position one pry bar under the ring gear bolt head and a second pry bar under the differential case. remove the differential assembly from the housing.
