How to remove driveshaft.

Im trying to take my DS out so I can go get my yoke flange redrilled to finish my m226 swap but cant figure out how to get it out from the transmission. I took the clips off and tried beating on it but nothing...Also, where it connects in the middle, does it just slide out?

REMOVAL
1. Put the transmission in neutral and release the parking brake.
2. Put matching marks on the rear propeller shaft flange yoke and
the rear final drive companion flange as shown.
CAUTION:
For matching marks, use paint. Never damage the rear propeller
shaft flange yoke or the companion flange.
3. Remove the bolts, then remove the propeller shaft from the rear
final drive and transmission

My front where it mounts to the transmission does not have bolts. They're u joints. Do I have to press them off?

It (driveshaft) normally slides out from the transmission.

Is your setup like this?

Nope...Thats a 4wd it looks like...Mine is a 2 wheel drive with a long steel 2-piece driveshaft. But your right, it does slide out. I have to remove the hanger bar and unbolt it from flange and it pulls out. Thanks.

You're welcome. I couldn't tell if you were 4WD or not in your sig. This is your setup then.
