    Hi, guys. I'm looking to remove the Realtime AWD system on my '05 Element, and once I get the rear differential out, I need to remove the axles, driveshaft, and disengage the transfer case.

    How would I go about removing the axles and driveshaft? Also, how do I disengage the transfer case so that it doesn't keep trying to turn a driveshaft that isn't there? I have to obtain a blockoff plate to finish removing the transfer case.

    Any help would be great!

    Prepping for a V6 swap.

    The entire thing should simply pull out? I don't have to get anything for the hubs to cover the holes?

    In a word, drifting. In two, drifting drifting.

    Ha. No, seriously, that's why. I'm going to make it able to drift. My MR2 will be getting the K.

    The entire thing, actually. I'll be replacing the entire drivetrain with a J32A2 V6 from an Acura TL/RL and a T56 transmission. So I'll have to build a lot of custom parts, including new rear axles, etc.
