Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Line the drain plug up to the 6 o clock position and drain the final drive oil. There should be a retaining ring around the outter edge of the cover. Usinf a rubber mallet, tap the cover in just enough to remove the retaining ring to release the tension fromt the rubber o ring that seals the cover. Once the retaining ring is removed you can use a slide hammer puller and carefully hook the inside of the fill or drain plug hole to pull the cover. Be careful not to crack the cover. Let me know if you need more help.
