Removing differential

Standard XP1000…Any advice on how to get the front differential out and separated from the drive shaft? Where does the drive shaft separate for just the front diff. to be removed?
With the hardware removed, the diff. can move around in the frame a little and when I pull it forward, the part of the drive shaft that starts to separate is on the back where it attaches to the engine. So I’m wondering how to remove the front differential without pulling the whole drive shaft out with it.
