Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
If you have never done this before, you really need to go get a Haynes or Chilton manual for this. They run about $25.00 and have step by step plus pictures. I've done one in my carreer and will never do another. And it was for my son. Believe me, it's a task I don't wish on anyone.
Go check out a manual. Google "Haynes Repair Manuals". It's worth it.

You have to remove the console and radio pod. Then remove 2 screws that you can now get to behind the pod. Then pry out the dash light dimmer switch (the one you use to adjust dash light brightness) remove the screw behind it that holds in the gage cluster trim. Then there is another switch on the other side under the cluster (don't remember what it is) and there is another screw behind it. Have fun, LOL!

Paul is right you can go to radio shack or autozone schucks or any parts store and ask for the removal tool it cost $20.00 tops. Trust me you don't want to undo the dash as the air bag could detonate if you shorted the two wires that can control it and it could kill you.

Testimonial: "Thank you! I didn't even think about the safety aspect of removing the dash. Better leave this to the pros!"
wheels, drums or rotors, the cover for the differential (You will need a drip pan)
remove the "pin" (usually a 5/15" or 8mm head) that secures the spider gear pin. Remove the long spider gear pin, as it should slide out without a lot of force.
Push both axles inward, and remove the left and right "c" clips that hold the axles in.
Note... if you have a limited slip, it may be a little different of a set up due to clutches in the differential.
