Re: Carrier swap
it is easy! First, let me say that you can do all of this your self as long as you dont mess up the backlash on the r&p. When you have the carrier out remove the cover retained by 12mm bolts. and take off the ring gear, 14mm bolts. Pull out the pins for the spider gears. Pull out the spider gears. Take out the side gears (one is still on the cover or it may be on the spider gears when you take off the cover, you will see it). Do the same with the other carrier and put the rear side gears in the good carrier. Put everything back using blue locktite. i donno the torques but i dont use them anyhow.
