Default Remove 10bolt G80 axle?

Does the G80 locking diff have a bolt and cross pin just like an open diff? Is it the same procedure for removing the axle, take out the bolt, remove cross pin, push axle in and remove C clip?

Alright thanks Tom...also wondering if any movement is tolerable? I have maybe 1/32nd up/down play when I wiggle the axle up and down, is this normal or is the bearing bad. I also have maybe a good 1/4" play in/out, does this mean the c clip is worn or the groove in the axle that retains the c clip or is this also normal? I have no bearing noise when I turn the tires or driving down the road or freeway.

Most of that play is normal. The in out play might be slightly excessive but I wouldn't be concerned about it. If the bearing was going bad, you most likely see oil leaking from the seal. If you pull the axle, look at the surface of the axle that bearing rides on and see if it is pitted or grooved. If it is, the is a sign that the bearing is bad.

Yeah I am hearing no noise what so ever while driving and when I had it on the jack stands last night I turned the axles and the bearings appear to be nice and smooth so I am just going to address the brake issues and call it a day.
