With the ring gear unbolted, the retaining pin and cross-shaft are removed. The spider gears can be rotated out of the way (don't forget the thrust washers behind them) and removed. The side gears lift up out of the bore in the carrier and the thrust washer is removed as well. Make sure to get new thrust washers before you put it back together. We sourced the Lock-Right cross-shaft and thrust washers from Randy's Ring & Pinion since they know what a Dana 41 is.
