There should be a removeable a cap holding it from coming all the way off.

It either has tabs bent over or it threads off.

If you're doing a hanger bearing you need to unbolt the rear shaft section from that yoke just behind the bearing. Should have strap just like at the diff. Then you take off the yoke and lastly comes the fun of getting a 29 year old bearing off the shaft without damage.

If you have already taken it apart at the slip yoke, realize you cannot simply put it back together any which way. The ends must be installed in phase with each other or you will get a nasty vibration when you drive.
