Remove spring (20), spring retainer (19) and side gear
(18) from the other side of the differential.
Remove twelve bolts (25), the washers and nuts that
hold ring gear (26) to case (23). Separate the ring gear
from the case.

wear of the teeth.
Check the teeth on the spider and center cam (inside
spider assembly) for chips or wear.
Be sure the center cam moves freely inside the spider
Inspect the splines on the side gears. Remove any
burrs or small chips. Check the walls for fractures.
Check the way each side gear fits on the mating axle
shaft (part of the wheel end assembly). Be sure the
splines do not bind.
Check the spring load of two springs (20) as follows:
Place one spring in a spring tester.
Compress the spring to its operating height of
15.7 mm (.62 in).
The force of the compressed spring must be 290
± 31 N (65 ± 7 lb).
Repeat Steps a through c for the other spring. If
either spring load is not correct, both springs
must be replaced.
Check cover (16) and case (23) for wear or score
marks. If the parts are worn or scored, use new parts
Check the ring gear and pinion shaft for wear. The ring
