rubicon rear carrier removal

Hey guys long story short I need to pull my rear diff apart to replace the front pinion bearing which has been mangled. My question is in regards to the wiring for the locker actuator and sensor, I believe the sensor screws out of the carrier but what about the actuator wiring? Does it unplug from the carrier? it can't be one piece with the plug on the outside of the diff right?
Any help would be awesome as i'll be pulling it out tomorrow and would really like to know before starting. thanks!

Have not had one apart. But would not worry. If there is not a wire connector for it there would be one when it goes back in.

Is the rear like the front?

The front has a top actuator that's presses in with a O-ring and held in place w/ 1 bolt (10mm I believe) The locker plugs into that from the inside. Remove bolt-lift out actuator - un-clip two blue wires. The plunger toward the rear of the housing sends the signal and tells you if the locker is engaged or not.

Why remove the sensor ?

When you tear your diff apart, pay special attention to the way the sensor is in the housing and how it connects to the carrier. Get it wrong, and your locker will malfunction......probably won't engage!!

Thanks for the info guys! Due to parts being delayed I won't be at it till Tuesday now. It looks like the locker actuator wiring implied from the end at the housing rather than at the actuator itself? The diff cover is off now but it doesn't look like there is any plug on the actuator side or a bolt etc holding the plug onto the actuator? Somebodies gotta have taken these apart before?

Sorry I've only get access via my phone and it won't let me zoom in on the pic, but it looks like that's a plug on the housing end of the actuator wiring. I'll be able to access my laptop tomorrow and can confirm that

so just adding a @ in front of the name (like in my edit above) will notify him of the post?
