Yes you can do this without dropping the trans. Just remove the tail case cover.

sweet, I thought so too, but the subie manual says first off, remove from vehicle....

the manual seems to be translated from japanese because it doesn't make good sense anywhere...

it has got Engrish translation...

any pics of all that I need to remove to get to the center diff???

or do you know of any links??

Thanks for the tip so far!!!

You have to remove:

Drive shaft
Crossmember
Shift linkage
Remove the spring pins that hold the shift bracket to the selector rod

I don't have any pics, but it is pretty simple. The only tough part (not even hard) is removing the spring pins.

everything went smoothly.... It was the output shaft, broken, stuck in the driveshaft....BUT WAIT!!!

there's MORE!!!

the center diff had popped itself apart after wearing the cross pin that the spiders ride on... I am going to post pics on the other thread when I get to a computer that has something faster than the dial up that I am on at home.... :-/

Thanks so much to those who offered hints and tips... seems like my first assumption was correct on the center diff.... better than a slipping clutch and better than broken gears or shift forks...

Sincerely,
RYNO

Actually, driving the car with the snapped output shaft is what probably ruined the center diff. It was probably trying it's little heart out to keep ya' going
