I need to replace the differential cover O-ring and one of the axle flange seals. Looking at the room I have it seems that the differential best is removed to do those jobs. I know I have to take the rear exhaust portion off but have some questions.
1. When I remove the rear flex disc, will I be able to collapse the drive shaft towards the front enough to clear the centering pin?
2. What socket size are the CV flange bolts, they look like they are 10 or twelve point, not Torx?
Before posting this I looked in the 35 and 41 section of the manual but those points were not addressed, in fact the only thing I found was a complete rear axle removal.
