Rear Diff Cover ?

Been trying to change the fluid in the diff but can't break the cover loose, want to check for shavings. Any hints and help with these. Thanks.

After removing all bolts, use a razor blade and start ina corner. I used a little tac hammer to drive it in. Then pulled it out and switched to a small screw drive. Work it slowly around till the cover pops off covering you in stinky diff fluid. The iron of the diff housing is much harder then that of the cover, so the cover will take any damage if you mess up. You should install an aftermarket cover with higher capacity while your under there. good luck.

Ouch!!! next time just drive over him. Then lay the coal. Usually leaves the cops in such shock as to what they just saw, that they forget to write ya a ticket. If your goin' play, Play HARD
