Need to replace drive shaft due to a broken center support bearing. I'm wondering how to remove the drive shaft from the transactical and differential. I'm sure putting the new one in would just be reverse of removal.
Do you
have the same problem?

With the lack of special tool can you simply pull it or pry it out?

Hello again.

Personally I would use some sort of a long pry bar. Something long in length to use as leverage to pry it out. It shouldn't be that hard to remove. Hope this helps and let me know how things turn out. I've attached a picture below of what I would use. Let me know if you have any further questions about this issue and thanks again for using 2CarPros.
