Pinion gear is STUCK!!! What do I do?
I am in the middle of a 4.10 gear install on my '00 GT and I can't get the pinion gear out. I have removed the differential, removed the pinion nut, and pulled the pinion flange but the gear wont come out!
This is the only thing the article I'm using for instructions says about taking it out: The pinion should fall loose from the front bearing, but if it doesnâ€™t, a little â€śpersuasionâ€ť with a hammer will do the trick. I have tried A LOT of persuasion with a two pound sledge and I can't get it to shake loose.
I want to go to the track tomorrow but if I can't get this damn thing out I don't know what I'm going to do. Anyone have any ideas?
