Before you jack up the car, loosen the hub nut on the axle shaft. You'll need a long 1/2 breaker bar to move that nut. It's torqued to 180 ft/lbs. You'll also have to remove the tie rod end and possibly the lower ball joint nut. Once those are removed, you can use a crowbar to separate the hub from the ball joint and move the hub so you can pull the outer CV joint out of it. Afte that's done, use a crowbar at the inner CV joint and pry it out using a quick snapping motion. That will dislodge the C clip that's holding it in the transmission.

frist thing is you,need to take off the wheel than there is a bolt on the rotor its 1/4 th in take a breaker bar and take off the nut then undo the tie rod and caliper once you have done that. there will be two bolts holding the hub take them off. Now pull out the shaftout of the hub thenyouwill be able to pull the rest out of the transmission.

The Ford Taurus is a front engine, front wheel drive car. Such a configuration uses a transaxle, which makes the transmission and differential one single assembly - there is no driveshaft between the transmission and the differential.
