Hi there,

to remove the drive shafts, jack up the car and place on sturdy stands, remove wheel, undo the drive shaft nut, this is very tight so you may have problems here, undo the steering tie rod from the steering knuckle, remove the 2 lower strut mounts, you can now swing the steering knuckle around far enough to remove the outer shaft, with a suitable lever pry the inner end out of the diff housing, it is only located with an internal snap ring, so it normally comes out fairly Ashly, have a tin ready to catch the oil as the shaft comes out, you only need standard hand tools with the exception of the large socket to remove the drive shaft nut.
