Re: HELP PLEASE !
When you get under the driverside of the vehicle you will see the front driveshaft coming from the transmission to the front differential. At the two ends there will be I think 6, 8mm bolts. 12 total. Loosen them all up. To get to them by rotating the driveshaft you'll have to put the front end of the vehicle on jackstands and put the transmission in nuetral. Remimber to have the parking brake on. Once loose hit the ends of the shaft with a rubber mallet( not a steel hammer). Sometimes corrosion builds up in the joint and can make it a pain to break free. Once the joints are loose, remove the screws you loosened earlier and the shaft should come out. Good Luck

if trans changed out and no movement and front is not freewheeling did you check and or dropped out the transfer case to check if stuck damaged or engaged ---or the new transmission is operational ---check the 4x4 actuator to see what position it is in or pull it out and check if damaged or stuck --lastly have you pulled the covers off the front and rear axles to make sure their nor frozen or damaged -do the transfer case check first disconnect the front driveshaft and check for freewheel do the same with rear driveshaft and rear with axles off and transmission in neutral try to turn tailshaft of transmission than try yoke of transfer case if any of these units dont move than thats where you check for problem
Insert a steel rod into the brake rotor to prevent the rotor from turning and loosen the axle wheel hub nut. Discard the nut.
Remove the ball joint-to-front wheel knuckle retaining nut. Drive the bolt out of the front wheel knuckle using a punch and hammer.
Remove the front brake anti-lock sensor and position it out of the way.
Separate the ball joint from the front wheel knuckle using a prybar. Position the end of the prybar outside of the bushing pocket to avoid damage to the bushing.
Use care to prevent damage to the front wheel driveshaft joint boot.
Remove the stabilizer bar link at the front stabilizer bar.
Make sure the CV-joint puller does not contact the transaxle shaft speed sensor. Damage to the sensor will result.
Install a CV-Joint Puller (T86P-3514-A1) or equivalent between the inboard CV-joint and the transaxle case.
Install a CV-Joint Extension (T86P-3514-A2) or equivalent into the puller and hand-tighten.
Using an impact slide hammer, remove the driveshaft from the transaxle.
Do not allow the front wheel driveshaft and joint to hang unsupported. Damage to the front wheel driveshaft joint may result. Do not wrap wire around the front wheel driveshaft joint boot. Damage to the boot may result.
Support the end of the driveshaft and joint assembly by suspending it from the chassis using a length of wire.
Never use a hammer to separate the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint from the wheel hub. Damage to the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint threads and internal components may result.
Separate the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint from the wheel hub using a Front Hub Remover/Replacer (T81P-1104-C) or equivalent. Make sure the hub remover adapter is fully threaded onto the hub stud.
Do not move the vehicle without the outboard CV-joint properly installed, as damage to the bearing may occur.
Remove the front wheel driveshaft and joint assembly from the vehicle.
To install: Do not reuse the retainer circlip. A new circlip must be installed each time the inboard CV-joint stub shaft is installed into the transaxle differential.
Install a new retainer circlip on the inboard CV-joint stub shaft by starting one end in the groove and working the retainer circlip over the inboard shaft housing end and into the groove. This will avoid overexpanding the circlip.
A non-metallic mallet may be used to aid in seating the retainer circlip into the differential side gear groove. If a mallet is necessary, tap only on the outboard CV-joint stub shaft.
Carefully align the splines of the inboard CV-joint stub shaft housing with the splines in the differential. Exerting some force, push the inboard CV-joint stub shaft housing into the differential until the retainer circlip is felt to seat in the differential side gear. Use care to prevent damage to the inboard CV-joint stub shaft and transaxle seal.
Carefully align the splines of the outboard front wheel driveshaft joint with the splines in the wheel hub, and push the shaft into the wheel hub as far as possible.
Temporarily fasten the front disc brake rotor to the wheel hub with washers and two lug nuts. Insert a steel rod into the front disc brake rotor and rotate clockwise to contact the front wheel knuckle, to prevent the front disc brake rotor from turning during front wheel driveshaft and joint installation.
A new front axle wheel hub retaining nut must be installed.
Manually thread the front axle wheel hub retaining nut onto the outboard CV-joint stub shaft housing as far as possible.
A new bolt and nut must be used to connect the front suspension arm to the knuckle.
Connect the front suspension lower arm to the front wheel knuckle. Tighten the nut and bolt to 40-55 ft. lbs. (54-74 Nm).
Install the front brake anti-lock sensor.
Connect the front stabilizer bar link and tighten to 35-45 ft. lbs. (47-65 Nm).
Do not use power or impact tools to tighten the hub nut.
Tighten the front axle wheel hub retaining nut to 157-212 ft. lbs. (213-287 Nm).
Install the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
Using the recommended type of fluid, fill the transaxle to the proper level.
Install a new set ring in the set ring groove of the driveshaft (left driveshaft).
Apply 2.0-3.0 g (0.07-0.10 oz) of grease to the whole splined surface (A) of the right driveshaft. After applying grease, remove the grease from the splined grooves at intervals of 2-3 splines and from the set ring groove (B) so that air can bleed from the intermediate shaft.
Clean the areas where the driveshaft contacts the differential thoroughly with solvent or brake cleaner, and dry with compressed air. Insert the inboard end (A) of the driveshaft into the differential (B) or intermediate shaft (C) until the set ring (D) locks into the groove (E).
Install the outboard joint (A) into the front hub (B).
Install the knuckle (A) onto the lower arm (B). Be careful not to damage the ball joint boot (C). Wipe off the grease before tightening the nut at the ball joint. Torque the new castle nut (D) to the lower torque specification, then tighten it only far enough to align the slot with the ball joint pin hole. Do not align the nut by loosening it.
NOTE: Make sure the ball joint boot is not damaged or cracked.
Install the new lock pin (E) into the pin hole as shown.
Install the stabilizer link (A) to the damper (B).
Install a new spindle nut (A), then tighten the nut. After tightening, use a drift to stake the spindle nut shoulder (B) against the driveshaft.
Clean the mating surfaces of the brake disc and the front wheel, then install the front wheel with the wheel nuts.
Turn the front wheel by hand, and make sure there is no interference between the driveshaft and surrounding parts.
Tighten the flange bolts and the self-locking nut with the vehicle's weight on the damper.
Look to make sure you didnt accidentally pinch wires between the bell housing and engine. Also check for any ground wires that may have broken off the studs at the rear of the intake manifold. Also inspect the wiring harness above the front driveshaft, near the crossmember, for damage(sometimes falls and rubs driveshaft creating several driveability issues)
Which bearing? The hub bearing? I can send it. I have your Ford shop manual & wiring books for $25, plus $4 shipping. Let me know.

I own an 02' Jeep Liberty. It is either the differential, or the drive shaft.
Is it the front or rear driveshaft? Does the Jeep drive? If the driveshaft
was bad, it wouldn't move, so I'm assuming he's screwing you,since driveshafts don't smoke.LOL. If your front or rearend lube has come all
out or very low, you could get smoking from the diffs,especially if the fluid hit's your exhaust. look under the jeep, to see if any fluid is leaking
from the front or rear driveshafts?good luck.
it just pulls out. it hasa circlip that holds it in on driver side. which side?
here's an escort, should be similar. note step 17
