Depending on the year, it has four bolts on a square flange, I put red circles on two that can bee seen--those bolts-- unbolt those and driveshaft will pull apart at yoke spline. Some have U-Joints, take the 4 nuts off the U-Bolts that hold U Joints together, pull them off and it will come apart, then same, it will slip apart at yoke clcik for full screen
