Need help -S197 (06 GT) diff/pinion seal replace

I've done this before on other cars I've owned but I'm new to this setup that has the shaft connected to the pinion gear without U-joints being right there.
I've undone the 6 bolts, will the shaft separate and move easily forward? Could use a little guidance. I suppose too that having a wheel able to be turned would help with rotating the shaft so as to work easier. Any help appreciated. Thanks

It's OK fellas...

I got into it pretty good... right up to where the pinion nut had to come off. Well, without an impact driver/air tool, getting enough leverage (lying on my back!) to remove it had me at a loss. So, I had to close it up and take it down to the nearby Auto repair shop and have them put in the new seal. Will have to be keeping an eye on the new seal once it gets replaced; For some reason, I still think the pressure relief valve is still allowing too much pressure buildup inside the differential housing.
Oh, and my Christmas list just got bigger (Air tools and compressor!). Also noted Ford's version of U-Joint. Gotta love that.. Must be indestructible!
