Re: fastest way to get rear diff out of 09 rzrs

1 Drain fluid
2 Pull the axles
3 Remove mid exhaust pipe and silencer
4 Remove the engine mount bracket from the frame and diff by removing 3 bolt two on frame one through the rubber mount.
5 Pull the bolts that secure the diff to the transmission and the bolts in the bracket that secure the rear of the gear case to the transmission. Remove the bracket
6 Pull the 4 bolts out of the rubber mount and remove it.
7 Pull the gear case to the rear and disengage it from the transmission
8 Remove the vent line and lift the gear case up and on its side to remove it from the rzr

There are 8 easy steps

I have never understood why some folks feel the need to post such a useless comments other than to make themselves feel important. Steve your post was just what I was looking for. This one, well it was just noise and a wast of space. If I had it, don't you think I would already RTFM!

Make sure you label each bolt because there is one each of every length and thread known to man!

Top bracket. Note the green is common between both brackets.

A rartching 13mm box end is a big help as is a stubby ratchet.

Re: fastest way to get rear diff out of 09 rzrs

Just one note.

Before you take the axle nuts loose...just remove the upper and lower rear A-arm bolts that go through the bearing carrier...and then pull the whole thing as one piece. Axle, bearing carrier, brake rotor.

So much easier and less time consuming than taking the axle nut off and then taking each component out.
