    Is this all that is needed to remove the rear shaft? Image below. STM didnt ship the bearings. I wasnt sure if they were needed for only the rear.

    to get rid of both shafts, i always got a plug, a stub and 2 bearings.
    The 2 bearing are for the front shaft.
    On the rear shaft, there is no oil hole that needs to be blocked so you don't even need to mess with the bearing

    Thank you for the reply and diagram. I was planning to only do the rear as the engine is staying in the car. I will install the stub and leave the front shaft installed. Where do I install the plug that is in the package?
