    I'm going to change the clutch on my 96 taco manual 5 speed 4 banger. I see how to remove the drive shaft from the differential, but not sure how it comes off the back of the transmission. I looked around under there and can't really figure it out. thanks!

    if there is no flange connecting it, it just pulls out. The tranny has a splined output shaft that goes into the DS.

    Yup, there's no flange. So I guess it just pulls out then. Good. Nice and easy!
