You have to remove the centre pin (the shaft holding the spider gears in place in the carrier) then gently push on the wheel end of the shaft in. This will allow the C clip to basically fall out. When you install the new shaft don't forget to lube the shaft so it slides easily on the seal,reinstall the c clip then pull the shaft out so the clip is held in place, install the centre pin and centre pin bolt, all the while making sure the c clip stays in place.Install the cover and refill with oil.If you have a limited slip don't forget to add a friction modifier to the oil.
