    Default 12 bolt diff disassemble 4x4

    I have removed the bolt and need to remove the pin to remove the c clips to disassemble my diffs and the pin will not slide out - does anyone have any information as to why this would happen or how to resolve this problem? I have tried to "tap" it out and it just won't budge.

    Are you certain you got all of the crosspin retaining bolt removed? They have a habit of breaking.

    "tap" it harder. as long as the bolt didn't break off you should be able to get it out. that's the only thing holding it.
