on some of the old ford cars you had to pry the shaft out of it... i was held in by a ring that expands and holds it into place... not sure if this is the same on the newer cars or not

see if i can help you before i go to bed. I just did one on the passanger side of an 01 focus. The one i did just slipped into the transmssion but it had a bearing race/bracket that was bolted to the block that the shaft went through. After removing the braket bolts I Knocked the bottom ball joint loose pulled the knucke out of the way and the axle came right out. I do believe though the drivers side is c clipped into the transmission. Just give it a good pry and it should pop out.

use a large block of C 4

start by removing a tire

the locking rings on fords can resit the removal of a CV pretty good, and they don't make it easy to get a hammer on the end of the end of the CV, just take a pry bar, place between the joint and the trans, pry, hit side of joint with hammer, remove. fords suck.

Slide hammer with special adapter (basically a "C" that fits between the CV and tranny housing)- or you can attempt to pry it out with a long pry bar...

Thanks Freak.
That helped me a ton on the damn POS.
I do have to agree on the Ford Sucks (Well the cars do).
