Removing the rear diff BNR32

What is the process for removing the rear diff? Do you have to drop the fuel tank? Or is it easiest to remove the whole rear sub frame?

Undo the prop and driveshafts, pull the abs sensors, earth strap and lower the diff abit on a jack, undo the attesa pump and bits bolted to the top, tricky bolts bit not that bad, then drop the diff.

No need to drop the subframe or tank.

Exactly.
Be carefull, the diff is pretty heavy. You should really use a gearbox jack because you can't lift it from above your head when you're doing it on your own

I take it this requires removing the fuel tank to get at the bolts on the back?

No, no. You can do it just like mentioned before. I can lift diff alone, but it's heavy a lot. So careful wenn you disconnect last bolts.

Going to tackle this in a few days and wondering whats the beat way to clean the surface before installing new gasket. Should I use some sealant also?

You can get a diff gasket from Nissan, better to use this imo.
