I've seen a $90 US tool on line that removes this gear. If you don't want to spend the money just for that one job, find out if a friendly mechanic could loan you his. It's easy to use.
It took me 5 minutes on the net using Google to locate that info.
Good luck! Hope this helps.

Gear stuck in 5th, shifter works fine. Cable fine, put in 4th shifter starts rattling, stays in 5th (1st &2nd) car is stuck. Internal it looks like, but hope I'm wrong. Please tell me

Sounds internal to me. Fifth gear bearing locked up. I assume it is manual(unless the bearing has welded itself to the shaft and case)? These aren't hard to rebuild. Automatics are a bit trickier. Either of them have to come out.

How to rebuild dana 60 front?

Fully rebuild, or partial rebuild? Pinion, ring, spider gears, pumpkin, bearings? Rebuilding it FULLY and PROPERLY is a big story, one too big to relate here, and it takes quite a lot of special tooling (differential spreader, dial indicators, etc). Please don't attempt this unless you have a well equipped shop.

If you just need to replace the spider gears, that's easy. Drain the oil, remove the cover, rotate the pumpkin until you can unbolt the crosspin. Push/pull the crosspin out, rotate the spider gears until they come out. Remove the side gears. Remove all four thrust washers.

Replace all four thrust washers, then the new side gears, then mesh the new spider gears with the side gears & rotate them into place. If the crosspin hole won't line up, rotate one axle shaft until it does. Install the new crosspin and bolt it in. Replace the cover gasket and cover, refill.

Going further requires a LOT more work, but you'll need to remove the spider & side gears first anyway. If you're replacing bearings or the pumpkin or the ring & pinion, you'll need a bunch of new shims to work with until you can get the ring-pinion clearance exactly right. You'll also need a differential spreader to get enough space to remove/install the pumpkin with its bearings in place. If you're replacing the pinion gear, you'll need to take some painfully exact measurements or you'll NEVER get the ring/pinion clearances correct.

starter bendix is stuck need a new starter or rebuild starter with new bendix

How to replace starter

We dont know details about your model; the solenoid, or on some starters, just a threaded part of the armature, pushes the bendix gear forward an inch or so until it meshes with the ring gear, allowing the starter motor to spin the engine over until it starts. When the engine rpm exceeds the cranking speed, the bendix automatically retracts, preventing the engine from spinning the starter too fast.

At least that's how it works in theory. Starter motor failure is rarely caused by a blown or shorted motor itself - usually it's a problem with the bendix mechanism or the solenoid. And frankly, most people will never need to replace a starter motor for the life of their vehicle. Intrepid but underfunded Saturday Mechanics might actually dismantle a malfunctioning starter and repair it themselves. You can still find auto parts stores that can get you new bearings, brushes and bendix assemblies. Generally, I just exchange the old starter for a new or remanufactured one, because repairing one doesn't save much money. On the other hand, if you have a rare or hard-to-find starter it might be necessary to fix what you have. Usually, auto electric shops can rebuild or repair a starter with a bad armature, shorted field windings, bad brushes, a bad commutator, or even a bad solenoid if there is no alternative

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

95 blazer turnkey will not turn over. guages and lights come on

Put vehicle in Neutral (rock it gently (in case starter gear is stuck on the flywheel)) try starting in neutral.  If it's a standard and you previously had to depress the clutch or brake (brake on automatic only) then could be the neutral safety switch or the brake switch if you had to push on brake before starting.
There is a big post on the Solenoid which is attached to the Starter. There is also a copper band that goes from the Solenoid to the starter.  A small nut probably 7mm  attaches the live from the solenoid to the starter You can run a thick wire from the positive on battery (careful not to short anything out.) If you can touch the Large Post and the little one at the same time the vehicle should turn over.  You may have to strike it fairly hard. Make sure your vehicle won't drive over you as this will by-pass the neutral and will allow the car to start in gear even, if the key is turned on. If your vehicle does not turn over at this time - the started can be whacked with a hammer or something but probably needs to be replaced.
Sometimes (within the solenoid on the starter) you can disassemble the solenoid and smooth off a brass plate which contacts to the posts when you turn key and this is how the solenoid works.  This plate gets pitted and is an easy fix - rather than just replacing the starter and/or solenoid. I just file and sand the disk smooth.  you may also want to inspect your brushes and bearings of your starter if you have it removed.  Sometimes a rebuild kit is fairly cheap and once you rebuild one or two starters is fairly easy, albeit, messy! To remove solenoid from starter, once the screws are out, you have to twist it - reverse that for reinstallation. Spray lubricant on small starter bolts (go all the way through starter) prior to trying to take the starter apart.
Once the screws are out.  Mark the starter so the pieces will be aligned correctly when assembling again. You may have to bang the starter hard with small hammer, to disassemble.  be careful of the brushes as they should be lifted off the armature and a safety pin or fine nail can be put in a hole to hold the brushes back temporarily during assembly.
Check all wiring, and especially the ground from battery to the body as well as battery or body to Engine, perhaps run a spare ground to both of these but don't put on mount or may not pass electricity through the rubber mounts to engine.
I really suspect, however, that it is just corrosion on the cable (or piece of copper) from the relay to the starter, or the disk in the relay that is the problem.
Canada Rocks!
Good luck.

On Chevrolet's there is a spacer between the starter and the block.  Replace this spacer into it's original position or you will have starter problems in near future.

How do you replace a clutch on a kia sedona

remove the intercooler and air filter box. undo starter motor then disconnect all connections into gbox. (2 i think) remove both front wheels then dsconnect both drive shafts at the gbox. (just pull them out) undo the mount above the gbox then supprt with a jack. remove mount then undo the ring of bolts that join it to the engine. pull it over to one side as far as you can get it. this should give u enough room to remove the clutch. ring of bolts holding pressure plate to the flywheel. friction plate between the two. then remove the bearing from the shaft in the gbox. replace all 3 parts ensuring the new bearing is greased, and in the fork correctly. assemble in reverse order. before starting check you get all gears then start with the clutch depressed and slowly release incase the release bearing is stuck..
