    Take the cover off, take out the cross pin, you will see the end of the shafts with the c-clips. Usually when you push in the shaft a little, the c-clip will just fall off.

    Hmm, any pictures of the cross pin or C clip? I took the cover off this weekend and was eyeballing it for a couple minutes. (Spare axle)

    I am trying to remove the carrier for a Lock Right install, I just helped do one on a Dana 30 (Heep TJ) I will try to get a light down in there to see if I can see this infamous crosspin. (Cross pin is on the diff end or back at the brakes end?)

    Any other tips for the Lock Right install? I have seen several writeups for the Dana 44 and Dana 30, but not a good one for the Corp 12 bolt? Link?
