dont isntall gears your self if you have no training, formal training.... else you are just delaying the fact that pro will have to redo your screw up.... its not easy and should not be attempted by someone who doesnt know what they are doing you have to shim the rear and set the backlash correct or you will have horrible whinning and the gears will nto wear right.

I don't know if the diff is basicly the same in mine ('00), but after the back cover is off and the bolts on the C shaped retainers are off, I used a prybar to pop mine loose.
