I remember you answered something like this for me a few weeks ago. I've got a differential that seems to be leaking badly from the front. You mentioned that I could pull the front section(sorry, at work no manual), not the whole pumpkin and I could then replace the seal. I'm a little concerned that doing this might change the mating of the gears somewhat, even though I'm not changing the spacing shims. Now walk me through this, when I pull that front section, will the shaft still stay in supported solid? And I suppose I'll have to change the crush sleeve, which I can't identify in the manual since they don't call it a crush sleeve. Will I end up with loose bearings that I have to reassemble? Or will the front section just come off with everything attached to either it or the shaft? Not to mention if the crush sleeve is crushed, how do I get it out? And will a lot of oil drain out, I don't really want to pull axles and open the pumpkin just to drain it.

Sorry to rattle on. I'm just wondering if the problems I can run into are worth the effort to just stop a slow leak? I guess if you could tell me what will come out of the thing it might sooth my fears!

Between your description and the manual, I should be able to square it away.
