Not understanding what you are wantin to do here....I've never changed gears myself but have watched a lot of videos on it and "gears" can only come out through the differential cover. The pinion bolt has to be removed from the driveshaft side before you can remove the pinion thought the diff opening.
Just re-read and it makes more sense...I still think you need to go through the diff though. Not sure how you would get the seal between the pinion and the fromt of the diff housing with out taking it completely out. Are they flimsy?? So that you could get it through the hole without taking it all out? Will the pinion move enough for you to get it in with the gears in?? I think you will have to remove the gears...
