Drive the U-joint cap almost all the way out of the shaft, but make sure the inner cap doesn’t come out of its bore, like this one has. Instead of trying to drive the outer cap all the way out, it’s better to grab it with a pair of pliers once it’s nearly free and twist it out, making sure the inner cap stays in its bore so it can more easily be driven out and the trunions freed from the shaft ears.
