I'm going to put the shaft back together and take it to a mechanic to do this very simple job. Thanks no need to respond to my question.

Below is the removal procedure.

Important: The driveline components in this vehicle are factory system-balanced. System balance provides a smoother running driveline operation. Observe the position of all the driveline components. Accurately mark the relationship of the components before removal. These components include the propeller shafts, the drive axles, the pinion flanges, and the output shafts. All components must be reassembled in the exact relationship to each other as they were before removal. Follow the specifications, the torque values, and any measurements made prior to disassembly in order to maintain the factory system balance.

1. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.
2. Accurately reference mark the propeller shaft to the front axle flange.
3. Remove the bolts from the propeller shaft to the front axle.
4. Remove the propeller shaft.
