now is a good time to dump the old fluid out of the t case sense you have to top off

then useing the same socket take out the 9 bolts holding the middle sec together now half the bolts are on one side and the others are on the other side they flip flop sides. then pull that part off beging carefull to catch the little mag that falls out when the pump filter slides out of its spot.

nows where the new parts come into play. also if you have bad bearings in your case now would be a good time to change em along with a new seal.
take the output shaft from the doner case and install the gear washer and snap ring back onto it.
