With the centersection on the bench, we removed the clip holding the passenger-side intermediate axleshaft (now is when we replaced the U-joint on this short shaft with the new alloy U-joint), bearing caps (they're marked from the factory to ensure correct reinstallation), the pinion nut, yoke, carrier, pinion shaft, pinion seal, bearing, race and oil slinger. With the centersection stripped, we thoroughly cleaned it in a parts washer. At this time we also cleaned the inside of the driver-side of the TTB, which doubles as the centersection mount/cover.
