Hi. I need to service the transfer case (seals, etc.) on my 2006 RR. The transfer case is the Steyr DD295, which RRPhil has written a great tutorial on breaking down.
My problem is that I’m not sure how to separate the front and rear driveshafts from the flanges on the transfer case. I remove the six e-torx bolts and the manual says to compress the cv joints on the shaft away from the case.
I am unable to compress the shaft by hand, do I need to pry the two parts apart in some manner? Is it rusted together and I need to break it with a mallet? What’s the procedure?
The manual just says to compress them but doesn’t say how to do that.
