Hey Everyone this is my first post and I am hoping to get some guidance. I have a leaking seal on the caliper of my sled. Probably went bad last year when I left the parking brake on (I got lucky) and the brake got hot. Ran it all last winter in the Tahoe area, no problem. This year I took it out twice when the snow out here was good. I lost pressure on my brake lever. Managed to diagnose ( hopefully) what the issue is. I've done a lot of researching on how to get this caliper off of the driveshaft, watched a couple of videos, etc. A lot of guys mention the puller from C&T? I've got the rotor loose and ready to pull this thing off. I just need the tool.. ? Here are some of my questions... do I need to detention my track and loosen the chain on the other side to make this happen? It seems pretty straight up, but I like to overthink things LOL.. unless it involves going fast. I am under warranty still and I can take it in. That is an hour drive to the nearest shop to get it fixed.. so I would rather not do that if possible. I also want to learn to fix it myself . The winter out here is low tide so I am not in a rush to ride.. but I would like it fixed. I've attached a couple of pics. Thank you in advance for any tips, direction , or advice. I hope some of you are out there getting it for those of us that can't.

I don't think you need to do anything with the track and chain to remove the caliper.  And the special tool is for removing the rotor, not the caliper IIRC.  I once tried to fix a caliper on an XP that had developed a leak from the same cause.  It was a messy waste of time, as the fix did not work (i.e., I wound up having to buy a new caliper anyway). Hopefully, you have better luck/skills than me. Also, buy the shop manual!  It's well worth the investment if you like to do maintenance yourself.

Removing the disc is difficult, you can get the tool from C&T Powersports, very reasonably priced that makes the job a breeze
