How to remove a propshaft

you have to remove the gearbox cover to get at the front propshaft bolts. Then you have to get the back of the car in the air to remove the rear bolts and extract the propshaft downwards and rearwards. No need to dismantle the diff mounting at all, but if it is a fixed length shaft, you might need to lever the engine/gearbox forward a little to release the propshaft.
Mark the falnges at each end (on both the shaft and gearbox/diff sides of the joint) so you can refit the propshaft in the same position as it was removed.
