My axle is snapped and the side gear on the drive wheel has a chipped tooth , how does one change it as per holdenpeadia saying its a quick job?

A Roll Pin holds the centreshaft of the spider gears in place.

Tap out the Roll Pin, then rotate the sides gears 90 degrees until the spider gears can be removed. Catch any shins that fall out and note the location they came from.

Remove the 2 spider gears, then the side gears can be removed.

Make sure the shims are reinstalled from where they came.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

So its fairly easy doing this won't upset the lash settings or anything will it as long as the shims go back correctly?

You don't touch the crown wheel and pinion so the backlash, toe and heel are unaffected.
