    OOPPS!!! Sorry,

    I have a 84 Blazer with the stock 10 bolt. I'm trying to replace the seals and bearrings on the axles. I can't get the one shaft out to get the C-clips off. Hope that's enough info.

    So you're trying to remove the 'pinion shaft'? My manual says there should be a retaining screw that needs to be removed. If you've done that the pinion shaft should pretty well slide out. I recall on my old S-10 that the retaining bolt was in pretty tight, so I used a six-point socket on it to prevent rounding off the corners.
    Sorry just re-read your first post and saw you already removed the retaining screw. Try rotating the diff and gently tapping on each end of the pinion shaft. Use a socket that is slightly smaller than the pinion shaft as a 'drift'.

    Hey Rene,

    I've taking out the bolt. The shaft has a little give but it wont slide out, it seems to get caught on something, and I move the hub so the saft has room to slide out on both sides but no luck. Like I said I've even tried banging it out with no luck.

    You might have a little 'step' in the pinion shaft. Can you rotate it? If it rotates try and rotate it a little and see if it moves up and down some. The manual says to be careful it doesn't fall out! You should have that problem huh!
