What service specific tools are needed for taking apart the main and pinion shafts in the 5mt? I saw GD mention a 36mm socket that has an OD of no more then 45.5mm but does anyone know how long the thin wall section needs to be?

Anything else?

Thanks!

I'm not aware of needing anything other than correct size sockets and a press.

Hmm, well I guess I'll find out when I get in there. Maybe it's different depending on year?

The big nut on end of main shaft requires a socket it has rounded corners that make it difficult. Take shaft to local dealer if they are A class like the guys at Subaru Santa cruz they will crack it loose for nothing then you just need a press.

Do you mean the nut has rounded corners or the that the seat of the nut has a fillet which requires the socket to have a rounded edge?

Thanks!

The nut has rounded corners. Just means a big Cresent or Open ended wrench won't work. A proper size socket works easy, espescially with a good impact.
