    Hi have you already removed the transfer box if not I suggest you do so makes the job a great deal easier. Good luck

    There is a 4 or 5 mm hex bolt in the middle of the offside drive shaft flange this needs to be removed first

    you need to remove the transfer box first otherwise you will struggle like hell there are about 4/5 bolt visable but there is a hex bolt inside the offside drive shaft flange which is not visable and if this is not removed the transfer box will only move away from the gearbox a few mm and the gearbox will not come out
