Removing the final drive side flange on a 2005 GL

My final drive has developed a leak and it appears to be the seal just inside the side flange.

My question is how do I remove this part?

My 2005 service manual tells me to remove the flange to get to the seal but it doesn't describe how to remove it.

I'd sure appreciate anyone describing how to remove this part.

Thanks,
Denny

Thanks for that. Unfortunately I'm trying to remove the flange that mounts in this cover, the one that holds the lug bolts.

Thanks again,

Regrettable I believe that is the way you get to it.

I stand corrected. It looks like you remove the two screws and that is it.

That's what I thought. The screws are out and there is no wiggle to the flange. FWIW, one of the screws was loose and the only thing holding it in was the brake rotor.

I put the screws back in a few threads and tried to wiggle it out that way - no joy.

I put screw drivers in between the flange and cover and pried a bit - no joy.

From the parts diagram, it appears the 5 lug bolts and the 2 dowels are pressed in to the gear hub and not the flange. So the flange has to come off all 7 of those things at the same time.

I think I'll douse it with WD40 and see what happens.

Thanks again,
Denny

If I'm not mistaken and I've never had one apart, but isn't that ring gear attached directly to the wheel lugs? And that shaft may have a c-clip holding it in and bearings in place for assembly. I believe you still have some removal to do including those little screws you already removed.

From the service manual just the two screws need to be removed . It appears that the wheel and two screws are all that holds it on. I think you are on the right track with the wd40.
Sorry I couldn't help with this

I have had these apart and yes remove the screws and wack it with a lead hammer - don't spray wd-40 on it as that just makes a mess. The ring should pop off once you jar it loose.

Normally when the seal leaks one of the paired bearings is bad causing the ring gear assembly to wiggle. Better check that as you may wish to simply replace the entire unit instead. get a hold of a rear trike conversion outfit and just pay them the $50 bucks for a replacement would be my choice.
