The intermediate gear comes out and the front yoke can be gunned off with an impact wrench. Then the front output shaft bearing cover plate can be removed. Be careful to keep the stock shim pack together. It's best to clean and reuse the stock shim pack to set up your front output shaft endplay, but if you can't clean them or you damage them, use a micrometer to measure the pack thickness so that you can duplicate it with the new shims that come in the rebuild kit.
