De driveshafts on the 354 gearbox can be pulled out. There is no need to undo any pins. You can help them a bit by levering them with a tyre iron.

But you need to undo the wheel assembly first.
And take at least 500ml of the oil out of the gearbox. Or you might have an oil spill all over the floor.

oil is all drained out, (mostly over me when I removed the sump!) many thanks, i've been under her for ages with a torch looking for that elusive pin!
