Default bad coupler

i hav been hearing the rattle comming from my nose drive. i ordered the oil coupler and gasket maker, but i need to know the procedure for removing and replacing on a series 2. i thought it was listed someplace, but i haven;t found it yet, so if anyone could link me to it, it would be appreciated.
thanks

actually, it is as easy as it looks. stick the stem from a spray bottle into the sc oil fill hole, squirt out all you can. Remove all bolts holding the nose to the sc body and wiggle till you break the seal. Pull out and replace coupler Reverse and fill with 2 bottles (the little gm ones). If you got an intense kit, it is just the one bottle.

Don't forget the red gasket maker. Either GM,loctite or permatex. Just a very thin layer,make sure ya get around the bolt holes and don't use so much that there is a lot that squeezes out when ya reassemble

ok, sounds good. i thought there was a special tool or way to remove the coupler, but sounds easy enough.
