Can someone give me some pointers to removing the front drive shafts from a TRX300FW?

I'm trying to take out the front diff, so far I have removed the front wheel, brake backing plate and suspension arms. The manuals sort of suggest that the front drive shafts just pull straight out of the front diff without anything being loosened. Unless I'm missing something?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

if yanking it out is all you got left to do , tie a rope around the axle , then tie the rope to a hammer about 2 ft of slack , swing the hammer , just make sure you got it supported good and don't rock if off and it falls on you

they yank out, but some act like an ex-wife !..lol. some just don't want to yank out !. you really have to put some thought and elbow grease into some of them to pull them out. I wish some one here had a c.n.c. machine or lathe ?, I've got an idea that would make this problem so simple !!.

ok outlaws, as I have talked about this idea to both retro, and samuk, and I think its a very good idea ?, seeing how we all have came across having issues getting cv axles out of front differentials ?, my ideal is plain and simple. my only request ?, is anyone makes this tool ?, is they make me one as well !..lol. here's the idea : take a plain mid size dent puller, adapt the thread end to screw onto the axle threads a good ways, operate the sliding weight, presto, the cv axle pops right out with no curse words !. now, there may be a time where the cv cup comes out ? ( this just happened to a member the other day ), ok, now all you have is the cup part sticking out the differential right ?, so now comes the other idea part, design a 2 or 3 jaw lock down puller, like a pulley puller to tighten down around the back side of the broken cup, then again, use the sliding weight to pop the cup out, sounds easy huh ?.

most I have seen and which are my favorite design are the simplest , a piece of small diameter cable which loops around the cv hub and attaches to a slide hammer ------- the way i learned from the Can-Am guys is very simple , works and cost nothing , tie nylon rope around the hub and tie the rope to a 4 lb mall , swing the mall and it pops right out ---
