1) Be certain the transmission is in neutral.
2) Be certain to mark where the driveshaft is on the yoke flange so it can be put back in the same location.
3) Cut the clamp on the dust boot and pull the boot back
4) Be sure again to mark where the drive shaft is to get it back in the exact location.
5) Remove the 4 bolts (11mm) on the driveshaft on the yoke end.
6) Pry back the shaft back from the yoke
7) Pull the shaft out of the transfer case.

SOURCE: i am replacing a front rotor on a 2003 chevy

Sometimes there are two screws on the inner face of the rotor.  These are typically removed with an impact-screw-driver. I use a big screw driver and a hammer but have had to drill them out at times.  Wouldn't be a problem to leave them out but just helps to reduce any vibration.

The inner circle on the Router where it contact the Hub, or Wheel-bearing portion gets corroded - use a lubricant at this location and clean with sand-paper afterwards and perhaps some high-temperature brake grease after on this location as well as the studs holding on the wheel.
Further, the pins that hold the caliper on - should be able to slide in and out freely - if not, remove them, sand them and apply the same grease.
Further , the portion that the caliper sits on have rails that should be cleaned with a file or something as they develop a groove and doesn't allow the caliper to travel properly causing uneven wear on your inner or outer pad and causing the rotors to warp prematurely as well.  Apply same grease to this location as well.
Note; New rotors have a thin film of oil on them that should be removed with Brake-Cleaner or Gas.  If not, this will ruin your pads immediately.
Get all the grease and oil off your rotors and do not handle with your hands - use a dry, clean rag.
This should get you going.
Oh, the rotor stuck on... Give it a couple good whacks with a hammer - but don't strike the surrounding metals as may shatter things. Oh, don't use the hammer method if you want to re-use the rotors.  Inspect the backing plate which is the metal disk behind each rotor - sometimes these get out of place and will rub against the rotor making a noise.
My recommendation is always the best rotor and the soft, or fibre pads as it is easier to replace pads once a year than to replace the rotors - Rotors will last for 10 years this way.
Good luck.

SOURCE: How do I remove the front driveshaft on a 2003 TrailBlazer?

there are two types, one will use a slide type joint rubber insul, and will have small bolts holding it to transfer case. the other type will have no bolts and pops in to transfer case, to remove this type you use a small pry bar and pop it out like a cv axle out of transmission, it uses a c clip to lock itself in, wedge pry between transfer case and joint and give a pull.

Replace complete fuel line assembly in a Silverado z71 1500 4 whl. drive


Some of these drive shafts require removal of cross member to get them out. The fuel lines run up the back side of engine so removing the cross member will allow more room to gain access to the retaining hardware. jack up transmission and transfer case remove cross member lower down for access.

2001 chevy blazer transfer case removal


How to Remove a Chevy Blazer Rear Transfer Case The transfer case on a Chevrolet Blazer is underneath the vehicle, mounted to the rear of the transmission. On four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case takes power generated by the engine and channeled through the transmission and directs it to the front and rear drive axles. Over time, the gears and bearings inside the transfer case can wear and the transfer case must be rebuilt. The transfer case on this vehicle must be removed before it can be serviced.
Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Socket set
  • Masking tape
  • Marker
  • Needle-nose pliers
Hide Instructions
  1. Removing the Driveshafts
    • 1 Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal, by using a wrench to loosen the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
  • 2 Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands placed underneath the frame.
  • 3 Drain the transfer case. Locate the drain plug near the bottom of the transfer case. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the plug and use a socket to remove it. Once all the fluid has drained out, reinstall the plug.
  • 4 Remove the bolts that connect the rear driveshaft to the rear axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it backward underneath the rear axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove it from the vehicle.
  • 5 Remove the bolts that connect the front driveshaft to the front axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it forward underneath the front axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.
  • Removing the Transfer Case
    • 6 Label and disconnect the electrical wires and vacuum lines connected to the transfer case. Use masking tape and a marker.
    • 7 Remove the transfer case shifter rod. Using needle-nose pliers, remove the clip that connects the shifter rod to the transfer case. Slide the rod away from the transfer case.
    • 8 Position a floor jack underneath the transfer case. Raise it enough to take the weight of the transfer case off the transmission.
    • 9 Remove the bolts that connect the transfer case to the transmission using a socket or wrench.
    • 10 Slide the transfer case rearward to disengage it from the transfer case. Lower the floor jack, and remove the transfer case from the vehicle

    Transfer case problems


    load clunks when going into gear (loose chain) but be careful,4x4s tend to make lots of noise anyways,and the noise can actually be in the rear differential,check how much the driveshaft turns freely at the rear.jack up the rear wheel just enough to turn it and watch for how much it turns,divide by 1\2 and it should be around 1-2 inches of travel.

    Ned to change the oil in transfer case


    The Z71 typically comes with the auto 4wd transfer case (cannot remember the GM number). This requires AutoTrak II, which is available at a GM dealer. Do not use any other fluid in this transfer case! The previous post was correct in the location of the two plugs, but not on the fluid (the other types of transfer cases by GM use ATF). The transfer case is located under the truck right under the cab. There is a small skid plate under it, and a large driveshaft leaves the rear end of the case heading to the rear differential (axle). If you have the manual or electronic w/o auto 4WD transfer case, you can use Dexron III, but Dexron VI is a better fluid that is also now available at your local auto parts store. Again, if you have the AUTO 4WD button in the dash, use the AutoTrak II fluid from the dealer.
