    hi, I’m in the process of pulling my engine/gearbox out, the passenger side driveshaft won’t come out of the gearbox, the workshop manual refers to a clip removal tool but I’m not seeing anything when looking at the shaft. Is there anything or do I just need to give it a good tug lol.

    From memory it should just pull out.

    Just pulls out, or at least mine does. No retention clip.

    most likely refering to the snap ring fitted to drive shafts that stops them moving/coming out of the diff bearing planet gear - ususally a large pair of screw drivers between box & shaft helps "pop" the shaft out
