    Re: Thread for DIY mods

    I am just a mod, not an admin. The way they lay it out is up to them. I can tell you that most automotive forums subdivide into general/performance etc. Of course most forums focus on a single car, not an entire marquee. That is why it "appears" more confusing here. The guys in CTS2 like the layout. The guys in CTSV will get used to it. So will you guys. Though I don't know if the boss has decided what to do with this forum.

    I hope that means adding a different layout to this forum and not something like closing it out (at least not till I get rid of my caddi, which will be when I get a New caddi).

    Re: Thread for DIY mods (diff Removal and install)

    from user rekkid

    Removal:

    1. Raise and support the vehicle
    2. Remove propeller shaft
    3. Remove the right rear tire and wheel assembly
    4. Remove the right wheel drive shaft
    5. Position a transmission jack beneath the differential
    6. Firmly secure the differential to the transmission jack
    7. Remove the front differential to support mountin bolt and nut
    8. Remove the left rear differential to support mounting bolt. Note that the rear differential support mounting bolts will not be able to be removed completely due to interference with the underbody
    9. Remove the right rear differential to support mounting bolt
    10. Lower the jack slightly until the mounting ear at the front of the differntial clears the support attachment point
    11. Using a suitable tool, carefully release the wheel drive shaft from the differential enough to install the J44394
    12. Notice: J-44394 must be installed into the differential output shaft seal prior to removing and installing the wheel drive shaft. Failure to install J-44394 as indicated may cause the splines of the wheel drive shaft to cut the differential output seal. Carefully install J44934 over the wheel drive shaft
    13. Carefully slide the J44394 into the differential output shaft seal
    14. Continue lowering the jack, while simultaneously disengaging the left wheel drive shaft
    15. Remove the differntial from the vehicle.

    Installation:

    1. If reusing the wheel drive shaft remove and discard the wheel drive shaft retaining ring. The wheel drive shaft retaining ring is on the splined shaft of the inner tripod housing.
    2. Install the new wheel drive shaft retaining ring. The wheel drive shaft retaining ring is on the splined shaft of the inner tripod housing.
    3. Notice: J-44394 must be installed into the differential output shaft seal prior to removing and installing the wheel drive shaft. Failure to install J-44394 as indicated may cause the splines of the wheel drive shaft to cut the differential output seal. If previously removed carefully install J44934 into the left differntial output shaft seal.
    4. Important: In order to prevent lubricant leaks, use care when installing the wheel drive shaft to the differential. Do not damage the oil seal. Replace the oil seal if it gecomes nicked, distorted, or is otherwise damaged. With the differential firmly attached to the jack, raise the differential while carefully installing the left wheel drive shaft into the differential until the splines are past the J44394.
    5. Carefully remove the J44394 from the differential
    6. Carefully remove the J44394 from the left wheel drive shaft
    7. Carefully install the wheel drive shaft into the differntial until the retaining ring is engaged
    8. Ensure the wheel drive shaft retaining ring is fully engaged to the differential by grasping the inner housing and pulling outward. The wheel drive shaft will stay positively engaged if properly installed to the differential.
    9. Install the front differential to support mounting bold in order to locate the differential to the rear support
    10. Hand install the nut to the bolt
    11. With the differential firmly attached tot he jack, raise the differential to the rear support.
    12. Position the differential to the support
    13. Hand install the left rear differential to support mountint bolt
    14. Hand installt he right rear differntial to support mounting bolt. Tighten both the rear and front differential to support mounting bolts to 175 Nm (129 ft. lbs).
    15. Remove the transmission jack
    16. Install propeller shaft
    17. Install the right wheel drive shaft
    18. Install the right rear tire and wheel assembly
    19. Inspect the differential lubricant level
    20. Lower the vehicle
    21. Pour yourself a well deserved glass of rum.
