The differential carrier can be removed and installed as a unit; however, the differential carrier can only be
repaired by replacing individual components making up the unit.
To facilitate replacement or major repair, the differential carrier should be removed from the axle and
placed on a workbench stand. minor repairs such as replacement of input shaft oil seal or drive shaft
yoke can be done while the carrier is installed to the axle.
