Hi everyone, I'm new here.

So, I have a leak coming from my rear axle (on my '01 sportage), and I've isolated it as coming from the oil seal just behind the pinion flange and the seal between the rear diff cover and the axle itself. So I have the pinion seal pretty much taken care of, but I can't seem to get this darn differential cover apart from the axle. I've removed all the bolts all the way around the cover, and someone told me that I needed to remove the axle shafts, so I have done that. I'm assuming that the cover is being held on by the old gasket, but I just wanted to ask if anyone has run into this issue, and find out what is the best way to go about getting this cover off.

Thanks everyone.
