How does the drivers side drive shaft come out of the transaxle on a 1990 Toyota Camry 3SFE with 5-speed manual transmission?

If the Camry is anything like the MR2, the procedure requires a brass chisel, if I remember correctly. I do remember that you DO NOT pull on the half shaft as this will cause the interior u-joint thing to separate and spill white lithium grease everywhere...

I STRONGLY suggest acquiring a factory service manual or seeking the assistance of someone that has completed this task before attempting to remove the drive shaft.

I learned the hard way on the MR2...

The MANUAL transaxle does not use transmission fluid. All 1994 Toyota manual transaxles use API GL-4 or GL-5 (oil grade), 75W-90 or 80W-90 (viscosity) gear oil. DO NOT USE TRANSMISSION FLUID which is meant for an automatic transaxle.

I replaced my 2003 toyota celica gt 5speed transaxle doing all the work myself. Rebuilt trans = $1100 + $200 core charge fluids + special tools i didnt already have ~ $100 Killed two days worth of labor for a low experience mechanic like myself.
