removing front differential under tray


Recommended Posts

I just finish flush and fill the transmission fluid. I was about to flush and fill the front differential.

I got into a small problem. I went underneath the car and unscrew the 4 10MM plastic bolts and could not remove the front differential under tray. I did noticed seeing the 5 Rectangle Metal Clips that holding the under tray to the car. After trying to ply them out, I could not do it. I would like to know how to remove these 5 rectangle metal clips?

Appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you and have a happy holiday

First of all, I realize this post is almost 2 years old but thought I'd put a response in the event someone else has the same question at some point in the future...

So the 5 rectangle clips must also be removed in order to release the underside tray and access the front differential. This can be easily done with two flat blade screw drivers. You'll see the clips are somewhat indented in the middle and rise slightly toward each end. Simply put one of the flat blade screw drivers into the side between the clip and the plastic under tray. Next, use a second flat blade on the edge of the clip - push up firmly and leverage away from the clip to release it. Once one side has been released and gently pulled down the other side will automatically release and you can remove the clip.
