    Driveshaft issue

    Why the hell won't my front driveshaft come out of the T-case??
    Need to change a U-joint but the damn thing won't come off... Help please.

    Factory 97 T-case btw

    Thanks everyone

    Did you cut the steel clamp holding the rubber cover? Once the accordion style rubber cover is loose, the driveshaft should pull out

    Thanks Southpw, a buddy of mine said his just popped right out of the t-case... Either he's full of shyte or has a different case cause mine has a nut in there. I need the whole driveshaft out, how do I get at that nut exactly??

    Uhm...are you talking about the nut holding the yoke to the tcase output shaft? Big nut behind the u-joint?

    Cause there is 4 bolts (8mm head I believe) that go through the yoke (from the tcase side) and thread into the double cardon yoke of the driveshaft...see the pic...

    After taking those 4 bolts out the driveshaft will pop out, you might need to use a small prybar to get it to start moving but it should come out pretty easy.
