    I am tearing the gears out of my rear 12 bolt. I know the axles are held in with c clips... But where exactly are these clips at that I need to pull off? Do they just slide off????????

    TIA

    Take the bolt out of the "cross shaft", pull it out a little way, shove each axle shaft in a little, and the "C" clip will fall out, then pull the axle's. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    If the c-clips are sticky sometimes a magnet helps get them out.
