It has a steel retaining ring in a groove on the end of the shaft. Wedge a crow bar firmly in the gap between the ****** and the metal part on the end of the shaft. Hit the crow bar with a heavy hammer. You need one quick hard and solid blow and you will pop it right out. Prying doesnt work as well.
YOU NEED A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB PUSHING THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB,THEN TAP THE SHAFT UNION AT THE JOINT CASE WITH A PLASTIC HAMMER TO REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT AND INNER SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE. IF YOU HAVE AN INNER SHAFT REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT BY SETTING UP A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB AND PRESSING THE HALFSHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB. AFTER PRESSING THE OUTER SHAFT INSERT A PRYBAR BETWEEN THE TRANSAXLE CASE AND THE HALFSHAFT AND PRY THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE DONT PULL ON THE SHAFT.
YOU CAN GET A BOOT REPAIR KIT OR A ZIP BOOT.DO NOT LIKE ZIP BOOT,DOESNT WORK . BEST TO GET A REMANUFACTURED AXLE AND REPLACE AS A UNIT,DOESNT COST MUCH MORE AND WIL WORK WITH A WARRANTY.TAKE OFF WHEEL,LOOSEN AXLE NUT,TAKE OFF LOWER BALL JOINT,POP AXLE WITH HAMMER TO DRIVE AVLE OUT OF BEARING A LITTLE WAYS THEN PUILL UP ON STRUT ASSEMBLY TO GET AXLE ALL THE WAY OUT OF BEARING/HUB ASSEMBLT. POP OUT AXLE ANT HE SLIDE IN THE NEW UNIT
if it not comes out and you do not want to destroy anything, look for the clamp inside. ( you can only see the ends, looking like I I )Clean the cv from grease, look from gearbox to wheelside around the shaft. in a small bay you can see a clamp, looking like two I I place a screwdriver or a needle nose plier in the middle and turn it to move the I I ´s apart. then you can easy pull the cv.
there is a clip inside that u cant take off. u must use a pry bar but use a snatching motion to pop it out of the trans. if u just pry it probaly wont budge. when u put it in, place it in the trans and push from the outer end of the shaft. I call it hammering using the slack in the shaft but being careful not to pull the boot off. then pull outward slightly to make sure it held in the trans. If u have trouble then slide the outer end thru the hub and run the nut down then hammer it in by swinging the strut and hub assembly forcing it in the trans.
I see that the solution given is for an axle shaft and not the drive shaft that was asked about. I am 99% sure that if you take out the bolts the other end will slide out of the t-case. Then the u-joint can be replaced as normally done.
