Jason, I used a stud puller socket (I think thats what it's called)
If you can't get hold of one of these, try putting 2x nuts on the bolt
Then by turning the 1st nut only (inside one) you should be able to undo the bolt that way As the outside nut acts as a lock

Hope this helps.

Nice drive this time of year- you can do it in a week without pushing, although I have heard of it being done in under 30 hours with 2 drivers pretty much non stop

I'd be in that.
It would have to be an overnighter though, as it might be a little too far for a day trip.

No hammers!

Unscrew it using the 2 nuts per Damian's post. Then screw it back in when you're done

I should have mentioned this earlier too.
When putting the bolts back in, you may want to use a jack to lift the diff & hold it in place. Not that it's needed, but it does make it a lot easier, especially if you're doing it by yourself.

Regards
Mr Turbo
