    Front driveshaft removal

    I have a leaking pinion seal and I have removed the roll pin, which was pretty tuff, but I cant figure out how to get the shaft out. I unbolted the gearcase to move it forward, but can't seem to get it. Do I have to remove axles and all or is there something simple I can do that I'm not thinking of? Thanks

    To keep from removing the tranny, I had to remove the fan to be able to move the diff' far enough forward to get the driveshaft off.

    Oh yeah.......replace that crappy roll pin with a 5/16" x 2" fine thread bolt and use plenty of anti-seize when installing. You'll thank me if you ever have to remove it again.

    Not sure what model you have buy the service manual for the 2010-2011 400/500 says to remove pin and slide shaft into transmission and sharply pull toward diff. to remove from transmission. Then pull towards right frame ans slide out back right side. I haven't had to perform this yet, only have 8.6 hours on mine.
