Question removing front gear case

Does anyone know how to remove the front gearcase on a 2006 Sportsman 500, or have a link on how to do it? Thanks

jack up the front end, make sure u don't block the bolts on the bottom of the frame that hold the diff in. take off the tires, remove the front axles, theres a roll pin in the front yoke that keeps ur driveline on the front diff remove that, slide the diff backwards and take it out, disconnect the connector for ur awd switch under that cover below ur headlight pod, take out the four bolts that hold the diff on and remove the diff
