You have to undo all the bolts (nuts) that hold the swinging arm to the gearbox. The swinging arm then needs pulling off the shaft. You will then see a bloody great big circlip that needs a decent set of pliers to remove.
The shaft can then be withdrawn and will probably come out with a cylindrical thingy with teeth on it. There are then 2 plates inside that that the shaft sits in.
Gearbox out is best for that.

Im assuming its a swing axle?

Once youve removed the brake back plate you will see the big bearing. Its the bearing thats stopping the tube sliding off.
Mine needed a big set of pullers to draw the tube and bearing off together.
If you go at it with a hammer you just might damage something.

The big circlip mentioned above holds the drive shaft and planetary gears in place.

If your still struggling let me know Ill try to post some pics.

Cheers Dave
