Rear axles!!!!!!!

Try shooting some penetrating oil in the axle end. Support the diff so the axles are vertical and shoot the oil in the lower axle. Let is set of a while, swap ends and do the same to the other axle end. The water & crud can get inside and cause the clip/ring to stick. Let it set for a day or two before trying again. This assumes you took everything out as a unit. If not jack up one side of the Trooper and spray, let set, then jack up the other side. They can be a pain.

Prybars always worked for me. One one each side and pry in opposite directions. Make sure the axle is parallel with the ground. It makes it easier. But the first time can be tough if there is corrosion inside. Just when I think it isn't going to go....it pops out.

So another night in the garage and the axles are still on the diff yup!!!! Ugh. Soaked them in on blaster had a friend come over used pry bars wiggled them and nothing! I thought about hooking a chain to my truck and pulling it lol but that would probally not work with the t2 on jack stands! To think I thought rebuilding the diff would be hard! So who wants to fly to Mass and help get this done lol

I had the same problem when I pulled my rear driveline for the first time. What I did -

I backed my pickup to the Trooper. I place a 4x4 wood post between a solid location on the Trooper & my trailer hitch. I wrapped a chain/strap around the driveline. I used a come-a-long between the chain/strap & the trailer ball and started taking in the slack. After I had A LOT of tension on the come-a-long, I tapped the head of the driveline (the part that was stuck) with a hammer. It came flying out. Be very careful! Next time the dirveline came out with just a pry bar.

I think Autozone also rents out tools. Try all the parts suppliers around you. A little c4 kills 2 birds with one stone. Pick up your axel on one side of your Trooper and the diff will be on the other side partially disassembled for you.

Lenny I think I will use the c-4 as a last resort lol.

Nocturnalsixer ya I saw a snap on tool guy yestarday he said he can get it but will take a week.

I think I got it. First tie the Trooper off to a tree. Hook a chain to the axel and the other end to a dump truck. Get another chain also hooked to the axel and leave some slack in it so you can make a long loop in. Get a couple of friends with 48" pry bars, an axel popper or two. Get another friend with a 2x4 and a sludge hammer. Then squirt a little WD40 into the bell followed by packing the crack inbetween the bell and diff with C4. After the C4 is in, use a bearing puller to put some initial pressure on the problem. I'm also sure you could find a place for the axel poppers which of course takes a couple more friends. Then, count down from 10. When you hit 0, the dump truck yanks while someone clobbers the inside of the chain loop with a pipe, The two friends yank on the pry bars. The other friend swats the end of the 2x4, which is on an angle from the other side, as hard as he can. A fourth friend beats the bell to shock it with a large hammer. Your last friends bang on the axel poppers. And all at the same time touch off the C4 and wammy, its out. Timing is critical.

PS. take a picture when the count reaches 0

      This just started happening a few rides ago. 4x4 and full lock were working fine. Now it won't go into 4x4 or lock. Took the servo motor off and it turns and operates just fine when I press the 4x4 button and lock button so I know its not that. Been doing some research and people seem to be saying that the slider (picture with red arrow pointing to it) should be all the way to the right for 2 wheel drive, middle for 4x4 and all the way left for locked. I tried pushing it to the left and it won't move any farther than what you can see in the picture. Seems like it's hitting something. It'll move all the way to the right, but I can only move it about 1/4" to the left (where it is in the pic now). Been trying to find an exploded view of the front diff with no luck. The Yamaha parts diagrams don't even show this slider as a part (diagram I have attached).

      Couple of questions. Anyone have an exploded diagram of what the front diff parts should look like for a 2009 Rhino 700 FI
      Special Edition? Some people say there should be a "fork" that the slider moves but I can't see that on the parts diagram either. Is my pic with the blue line pointing to the fork? Anyone with any ideas? Would like to get my 4x4 working again so I can do some snow wheeling soon.

      Hello all,
      Was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good two way communication headset. It's too loud in my Razr to easily have a conversation with the wife, and want to go the headset route to help with that and reduce cockpit noise.
      Thanks!

      The owners manual isn't helping as it doesn't look accurate. The bottom looks like an entire panel. Thanks in advance.

      The middle two tires on 6x6 are spinning. the drive shaft from middle to rear is spinning and the shaft from middle to front is spinning. I have the entire thing jacked up. When I first start it both middle tires will spin and the front two will spin for about 10 seconds. the rear tires do nothing. I can spin the rears wheels both forward or backwards at same time or one forward and one backward and vise versa. Is this normal. Do I have a rear differential broke or is something not engaging the shaft to the gears in the back. Would somebody please tell me how all the drive system works together so I can find something to fix of replace.

      I'm getting a small area of rust starting behind each front wheel, (where the cow pies get slung). I'm pleased with the job POR15 did in the bed, so i will just repeat the process in that area. however, i'm not sure how POR15 will hold up to cow crap getting slung on it.. and my reasoning  is Cow poo is somewhat acidic, and when left too long with out cleaning off, starts to lift paint, so i don't know how that will affect POR15. what i'm thinking of doing getting steel sheeting with aluminum finish, or a stainless steel sheet  and bend it and fit it to the inside of the wheel well to form somewhat of a "splash/splatter" guard  to protect the actual frame and sheet metal from further corrosion as well as were I ....there are several places where i could tack weld it to the frame underneath...
