Default Help needed - Quick!

So I got the old diff out of the beater, but while removing things the inside cap on one of the drive shafts popped off. I am pretty sure that a ball bearing got away from me. I have 5 but I am sure that there should be 6.
Can some one look it up in the FSM, please?

If I can't find this missing ball bearing I may need to head home and take off one of the drive shafts from my other car (that I am installing a Torsen into)

What is the procedure for removing the driveshaft from the car?

Thanks for the help...

Yeesh, that sucks. Try calling a CV specialty shop?

it should be obvious how many you need because the cage for the bbs will be missing one.

Yup, I knew it was a dumb question. But the problem is solved.

I had to race home and take a ball bearing from one of my other drive shafts.

I am glad that I now have a winter beater again!

I have been riding the bike rain or shine since the beginning of June....
