Hi guys, bear with me as i'm not too familar with diff internals. I'm going to have my 12 bolt rebuilt, so i'm gonna tear it down, clean, paint, then send to a shop to get setup/rebuilt.
I have attached a 'sequence' to remove the carrier. Please correct me if i'm you see anything i should look out for
1) remove retaining bolt for cross shaft
2) With bolt removed, remove cross shaft to bump in axles to get to c-clips,remove c-clips,remove axles, re-install crossshaft and retainer bolt
3)Remove bearing caps(mark so they go back in the same), remove carrier assembly(shims too). Then remove wheel seals/bearings,ect
I think this will get me far enough so I can thoroughly clean the inside/outide of the housing, then paint,new bushings and send out to get rebuilt.
One more question! My vent is snapped off. Do i just drill out the old one? Where can I get a new one?
