Worst case scenario you will need a case spreader. :pale :banghead

Screwdrivers are probably not big enough. I used a couple smaller crow bars when I pulled mine and it came out pretty easy. Be prepared when it does drop out. :pale :Thumbsup

Put the bearing caps back on loosely with the bolts in a few turns so it doesn't pop and hit you or get damaged on the floor. Then take a thick rag/ bundled up a tad and rotate the ring gear towards the pinion gear so the rag binds up in-between the ring gear and pinion gear and that will usually safely pop it out. You may have to take a pipe wrench etc. on the yoke to rotate or a wrench on the ring gear bolts to get enough force on the rotation.
