If it is coming out at the gearbox end then there should be a hole drilled through the shaft which must be aligned to another hole on the gearbox output shaft. Once together a roll pin should then be knocked through the hole to keep the shafgt in place. If it is the other end then there should be either a circlip in the cv joint or on the end of the driveshaft.
