Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

It looks like the transmission side of the driveshaft has a quick release on it. There is a collar that is spring loaded on it, you will pull or slide the collar backwards toward the u-joint which should release it and you can remove the driveshaft from the transaxle shaft. I am including a picture that might help you.
