Default Dropping Rear Wheel Drive Diff

Iím stuck currently in removing the entire rear end diff assy on my 06 Vue. Iím struggling in separating the axles off the diff to remove two mounting bolts to allow the whole unit to just fall off.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well I got it. I was trying to avoid taking the rear bearing off. But thatís what it took. Once bearing was off, I slid axle out and can drop rear end.

Won't the rear wheels fall off without the axle shafts and nuts keeping the bearings together?

Nope. The rear bearings are no different than the fronts. However more so the part number for a gm was bearing or a front wheel drive rear bearing is the same. I finally got everything dropped and the car is so much quieter without the worn out diff in the back

Ok, I was reading the service manual of another GM model which said not to move vehicle on it's wheels if the drive axle is removed from the hub. Vue may be different.
