Hi,

To separate the shafts and replace the carrier bearing, you need to do the following:

On the U joint nearest the carrier bearing, remove the two circlips on the carrier bearing side U joint yoke.
Press the U joint out of carrier bearing side U joint yoke.

With the shafts now separated, and the carrier bearing side U joint yoke empty, you will see a nut in the bottom.
Remove the nut and washer from the center of the yoke.
Slide the yoke off, then slide the carrier bearing off.

The yoke and carrier bearing are on a splined shaft,however with age they will stick. If you find that the yoke will not come off with a few solid hits of a mallet, you will need to put the shaft in a press and push the spline through the yoke.
