Got a question for the auto-heads out there.

I have a '99 Jeep wrangler and I have a leaking rear seal on the transfer case.  On the rear output shaft of the transfer case there is a dust-shield/oil-slinger that needs to be removed to get to the seal.  I tried using a gear puller, which bent the dust-shield (I have to get a new one) but didn't budge the part at all.  Any ideas as to how to remove this part?  I am thinking that heating the part to expand it and then using the gear puller might have a good chance of working.  I think I may want to heat up the replacement part before I install it as well.

I put up a picture of the rear of the transfer case and the part I am trying to remove.

heat works wonders.. pipes gears nuts etc, and PB blaster or P'blaster however you want to call it, (heads up its flammable) perhaps a few taps to help break it loose as well, alomost looks as though you could get a pry bar back behind it, if your going to get a new one, might as well try anything, so long as you don't mess up the shaft. autozone has a small online repair help manual, chiltons or hanes is the route I go, if you dont want to buy it check the library.

as for install I'd doubt you have to heat it up,  perhaps a little grease or silicone spray would help, WD-40 dries sticky and attracts dust n such

or the jeep doctor on youtube

Have you checked with the parts guy at the dealership?

I've almost always found them quite helpful when dealing with something you're unfamiliar with.

I did ask when I ordered the replacement but he had no idea and none of the mechanics were in that early.

Update:

Replaced the leaking seal, after numerous tool purchases (about 10x the cost of the part) but I can use them again.

Got the dust cover off by heating and using a gear puller, still warped the hell out of it though.  Got the old seal out, which took a different tool (seal puller).  Went to put on the new seal but the parts store provided me with the wrong one (I'm not even sure it was a part that went on a Jeep of any sort).  Ordered the right part and put the Jeep back together in a half hour.
