When it popped out, I wasn't quite ready for it, so it hit the ground and damaged one of the bearings. Don't let that happen to you, whatever technique you use. It probably should have used a case spreader, but I was advised against it.
I got mine out by stuffin a rag behind the ring gear and turning the driveshaft, after stuffing it a couple times it popped out
