the disconnect is on the passenger side. no need to mess with it. its not a c clip in the pic. the c clip is for the intermidiate shaft. both axles will slide out if you follow my last post!

ok so I went to go connect it back to the hub but forgot I cant because the damn axle shaft snapped at the Ujoint so then i decided to just get the sledge hammer out along with a couple buddies and bang the h@ll out of it. Nothing this things gotta have a C-Clip in it somewhere so I tried removing the pin so I could take the center section apart a bit to figure this out but the damn pin wont come out it looks like maybe somebody else snapped it before?...heres a pic...As of right now Im searching for a whole new front axle because Im tired of looking at this Jeep sit!...Im gonna start removing the whole thing in about 30 minutes unless anybody else has any idea's lol

Can you show us a picture of the passenger side knuckle/end of axle area? There is really no reason that the axle shaft wont just slide out. Take a picture of the end of your axle as you have it right now. This will give us a better idea as to wtf is going on.

I have had dozens (literally) of axle shafts in and out of YJ's there really is nothing that could be holding that shaft onto your axle. One more PIC!

Not only is that the jeep spirit, but this is one of the smartest answers that I've seen on this board. If you can't find an answer, start over.

Best of luck!

and for future ref, that is a roll pin. It is driven in and out just like a drive pin, with a punch.
