Jack up car, remove wheels,ball joint, cv joint so the driveshaft hangs free. jack up engine a small bit then remove engine mount and lingage, lower the sub frame a small bit for room them let the engine down slowly, this will give you enough space to remove the bolt from the box. it a good bit of work so take your time and be safe.

I'm replacing the clutch. I have removed all the bolts and separated the the housing slightly but cannot totally separate the two. I'm thinking I may be missing a step.


in the same area of the bolt wholes there will be dowels sometimes the gearbox just needs to be pryed to seperate also make sure the driveshafts are completely removed from the gearbox shift cables and hydraulic line is removed mountings are removed completely out of the gearbox way.sometimes the loom or water hoses routed over the gearbox can restrict and its common for the cv joint flange on the gearbox differential to hook on the metal shim plate thats sandwiched between the engine and gearbox

Do you have too removed the whole drive shaft to replace the d/s coupler


If you mean the shaft that runs the accessories in the front causing a chattering noise, No, you need to loosen the mounts that hold the whole front assembly in place to remove the coupling though.
If you mean the rear driveshaft, then yes, Lift the vehicle, select neutral gear, apply the handbrake and mark the driveshaft at the rear where the driveshaft connects to the differential so it can be re fitted in the same position. Loosen the bolts one by one, releasing the handbrake to turn the driveshaft around to get to the next bolt. Take note of which way around the bolts are as this is important for the strength of the bolts in relation to the sheering action of the driveshaft.

How do you remove the front axle to get the engine and transmission out


This is a generalised approach for most front wheel drive vehicles.
The front suspension strut needs to be unbolted from the control arm before the driveshaft can be removed.
First off, loosen the driveshaft nut(large nut in the centre of the wheel). These are very tight and usually require at least a 30 or 32mm deep wall socket with a torque wrench to remove. You will probably need some help as the car will move as soon as you put force on that nut. Best solution is have someone step on the brakes or put the car in top gear with the parking brake engaged.(This will not work on an automatic)
With the driveshaft nuts removed put the vehicle on axle stands so that the front wheels are clear off the ground. Do not use 2 jacks or bricks to do this. Be sure to chock the rear wheels and engage the parking brake.
Remove the front wheels. If you forgot to loosen the wheel nuts before jacking the car up, once again have your unfortunate assistant step on the brakes so you can loosen them.
Have a look at the lower control arm (Sort of a triangular shaped arm between the body of the car and the hub carrier. It connects to the hub carrier by way of a ball joint. If you're lucky the ball joint will be bolted to the control arm which is easy to remove, else it has to be undone by way of the single bolt on the hub carrier. The ball joint is difficult to remove at this point and needs a special tool to force it out of its seat. Hammering is definately not recommended and levering against the CV joint can cause damage to the CV.
Once done the hub carrier can be pulled away from the car to give you the free space to pull the outer end of the driveshaft out of the hub carrier. The inner end of the driveshaft clips into the gearbox and can be pulled or levered out with some effort.(hopefully the gearbox has been drained before this point as there may be some spillage of gearbox fluid/oil as soon as the shaft is removed from the gearbox).) Once the drive shafts are free the engine/gearbox combination can be removed. Reassembly is the reverse of removal, but remember to torque the driveshaft nut to the correct setting with a torque wrench. After reassembly have the wheel alignment set.
Hopefully I dont step on any copyright toes. Below is from a Haynes workshop manual.

Other than not having 4 wheel drive, what would happen if i removed the forward drive shaft


You need to look at the yoke connections. If the ends look like they are sealed and only connected by U-joints then it should work. If one of the ends fits like a driveshaft in some auto transmissions then the yoke may not be bolted onto the output shaft and it would slide out like a driveshaft. This would leave a big hole and no seal.

Renault clio problem


First check to see if the driveshafts are turning, they are the things that stick out either side of the gearbox. start engine put car in gear. and let the clutch up, if you have no drive, open the bonnet and see if the gearbox end of the driveshaft or the wheel end of the driveshaft is moving. if one or the other is (remember to look both sides of the gearbox 2 driveshafts) you have a driveshaft or hub fault. If all is well and nothing is loose or moving the problem is either clutch or internal to the gearbox. this will require removale of the gearbox. approx 5 hours labour remove and refit plus parts required on inspection.
