    If its the bit thats trapped into the hub then you need to remove the large bolt in the centre of the hub/wheel and then you should b able to drive it out complete with CV joint with a hammer and suitable drift (wood or soft metal such as copper or brass).
    If its the inner portion of the drive shaft(attached to the gearbox) you need to unscrew the inner cv joint which is screwed to the gear box (5 or 6 screws can't remember) and then the whole inner drive shaft and inner cv joint should pull out

    The cars I've worked on had 12 point splined key bolts, I think the 'XZN' bits in this link is what you would need?
