Any hints for dropping the front driveshaft ?
 
Trying to resolve the PRND and stuck in 3rd gear (limp mode). Wiggled the 25 pack connector at the the trans and it fixed the problem. However, there's not enough room to get my hand in there to remove and do a proper cleaning, drying, spraying of the connector.

So, how the heck do you drop the front d/s ???

front ds front my manual 2007:

REMOVAL




NOTE: Propeller shaft is serviced as an assembly only.


1. Place vehicle on floor or drive-on hoist with full weight of vehicle on suspension.
2. Shift transmission and transfer case in to Neutral.
3. Mark a line across the C/V joints and companion flanges (3) (4) for installation reference.
4. Remove bolts from C/V joints.
5. Push propeller shaft forward to clear transfer case companion flange and remove the shaft.
