if it has the four bolts that have a flange piece on it also then its just a unbolt and pull one.another sign of the unbolt/pull type is there is no removable cover on the back of the diff. i never undo nothing but the 4 bolts. i leave twn in but real loose so when i yank on the axle it wont break nothing when it cuts loose all of a sudden.

Testimonial: "thanks for the answer, good idea about leaving bolts loose so as not to do damage."
SOURCE: rear differential axle removal
remove the 'locking bolt', once the pin is out the c-clips shoud fall out unless this is a floating axle in which the axles are attached at the hub.

YOU NEED A HAYNES OR CHILTON REPAIR MANUAL.TO REMOVE REAR AXLE YOU HAVE TO REMOVE REAR DIFFERENTIAL COVER AND GASKET.YOUR DIFFERENTIAL HAS EITHER PINION SHAFT LOCKING SCREWS OR C - LOCKS.THEY HAVE TO REMOVED BEFORE AXLE SHAFT WILL COME OUT.
