    A friend of mine and I did this not too long ago. Took us about 3-4 hours to pull the tcase, split the halves, clean the surfaces, reseal it with RTV, and remount it. And that was in the rain.

    0. support tcase with floor jack or tranny jack
    1. remove rear driveshaft
    2. disconnect supporting rods that connect to the bellhousing/tranny/whatever
    3. remove bolts connecting tcase to adapter for tranny (I think there are 6 bolts)
    4. back tcase away from adapter and lower

    That's all there is to it!

    Nothing to it, just remember to drain the fluid first. Then just remove the clip that retains the shift linkage and slide it out, unplug the wiring conector on the top, remove the driveshafts, remove the two large bolts that hold on the support arm, and finally remove the bolts that mount it to the adapter. Piece of cake!

    I'll agree wiith those answers. Just also be aware that there is sometimes fluid between the adapter and the t-case. It only had to douse me once. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Make sure you have the t-case supported well when you back it off and put it back onto the back of the transmission it helps to have a friend over. I dropped my 208 on my elbow! Still hurts every now and then
