As I can see its connected only by 6 bolts on each side.
you can probably release front part and pull it off the middele.
easeir if you just take the whole peace out, and work on it.
6 bolts on each end
and 2 bolts in the midle.

Drive shaft or half-shaft? I think you mean half shafts and yes the inner shaft will pop out of the gearbox. They are held by a spring clip and a groove. On the older 4000 models with 90mm CV joints were held by a long bolt. The inner CV joint itself is held by six bolts.
