  You mean you cant remove the fork with the bolt in the center ?

  I heated i little with a propane torch and use a strong puller and a hammer to kick the puller ..... with patient it become to go out...... 

  I have an A4 , 100Q, V8Q and a 5000TQ driving shaft and they are identical but not the same lenght. The A4 is not rebuiltable for the u-joint, no clips, only rived.

    I have a spare 90Q driveshaft, and I'm trying to replace the
    center support bearing, as the one on this shaft as well as 
    the one in my car have torn bushings.  I've marked the 
    halves so i can reassemble them in the same alignment, 
    removed the bolt at the center u-joint, but still the yoke 
    refuses to slide off of the splined shaft. Am I missing 
    something?  The online accounts of this job are a little 
    vague, and most deal with the 100/200 models which I 
    think are slightly different.
