    Ive got to get the carrier out but I cant get the c-clips out. I have the pin out but the axles wont move in enough to pull the c-clips. Im about 1/2 of the clip still in the spider gear so it wont slide out. Am I missing something?

    kick the axel a few times at the outter side. that should be the easy part. a few years ago, i had the threaded pin break inside the carrier. i had to destroy the darn carrier to take it apart. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I beat on the axle with a rubber mallet, but it still wouldnt come out.

    Is there anything from the backing plate out that is stopping the axle from pushing in ? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Like said above, clean up around the backing plate so that the axle can slide into the axle. I had this problem, totally confused me for an entire afternoon.

    I had a bunch of grease, dirt and crap built up so that the axles wouldn't move in enough.

    Hold the side gear against the case when you push the axle in!
