Remove the differential cover. If mating pin (Silver rod, the only brightly polished part in there) capscrew (Torx no. 10) is not visible, remove rear drive shaft and Turn axle until mating pin capscrew is visible.

Remove capscrew and mating pin, do not let the cluster gears turn or they will come apart. Not impossible to put together but very aggrevating.

Remove the yellow "C clip".
