    Ross did you remove the stiffener rod from the side also? I think I had only four in mine. Then the rod(2), cross member(2), linkage and speedo cable. I am guessing you took this stuff off but its still a good checklist. Hope this helps you.

    Hay at least it didn't come off when you were doing 80!
    As long as the backing plate isn't bent you can probably get the axle fix for less than $50. I'm sure somebody out your way has a used axle shaft they can hook you up with.
    The transfer case has 4 bolts holding the adaptor to the tranny. The case then bolts to the adaptor. It's been a while since I dropped a 208 but should be fairly obvious. There is a good chance the bolts for the adaptor to the tranny have stripped out. Should be able to install som Heli coils for around $40 for the tools and the coils.
    I lost my last wheel at 60mph and the loose wheel did $1600 in damage to a Ford Ranger that it hit.

    Hey, a new use for a Furd. Protect the foliage from a rampaging wheel. I new they were good for something. haha.

    I hope the person in the Ranger didn't suffer from any injuries other than a new seat cover.

    Uhhhh looking at the last picture in this thread that axle does not look broken. the nub that the C-Clip goes in is still there it looks like. I think your going to open that diff and find a split diff gear. It may have jamed and put a good load on the tranny.
    I would still replace that axle shaft. It took a beating on the way out and may no longer be true.

    There are 4 bolts that hold the adpter to the tranny asnd then 6 bolts that hold the t-case to the adapter...it is a hell of a lot easier if you have those handy GearWrench deals...also, you have to disconnect the shft rod at wither the shifter or the t-case lever.YOur lucky though...a 208 only weighs about 75 pouns or so...I had a great time getting my 205 in my truck by myself...
