Question about 2003 GMC Envoy
Was wondering if that spline gear inside case was mounted to a separate case peace that mounted to the outside of the front differential and if so can i take it off and replace it while it is in the car still or do i take it off and then replace the gear in the case and then put it back on ?
If you are talking about the Splined Disconnect, that is on the passenger side of the differential and is known for running dry and self distructing. Yes, it can be removed separately and replaced or repaired without any other disassembly. Below is a figure of parts of the front drive system.

You cannot pull the front differential and drive the vehicle. The wheel bearings are tied into the front axle, and won't properly lubricate if not installed.

check wheel bearing play. if the play is excessive it will cause the abs sensor to come away from tone ring loosing signal, illuminating abs light.

neither of the previous solutions are coming from ppl who know what they are talking about. i am in the process of making this exact repair, on the same front differential. you have to un-bolt the cv from the axle shaft, then drop the front diff. the passenger side is easier to deal with than the driver side from what i'm experiencing. once you remove the axle tube from the passenger side it is very simple to dissassemble and replace seals and bearings. the drivers side however is a different story. there is a lock ring that holds the axle shaft into the diff on the drivers side, and i have yet to get to it to remove the axle shaft. once the axle shaft is removed, then you just pry out the seal and carefully tap a new seal in its place. reassembly is the opposite of disassembly. if you find out how to remove the axle shaft snap ring, please let me know. hope this helps
