How do I remove the actual Differential?
I am trying to figure out how to remove the actual differential, not the whole rear end of a 1999 Chevy Tahoe Posi-Trac. I have removed the differential cover, removed the axles by removal of the C-clips (horseshoe clips), I then removed the two main bearing caps from the differential. But I cannot get the differential itself out, no matter what I try. Need to remove this to get to the pinion as I need to replace the pinion bearing. Any other differential that I have removed from a Chevy literally pops out with the smack of a hammer on the housing. This one is simply not doing that. What am I missing? Or could it be that it is in there so tight?
Is this a good question?
