Q: How to remove the right front driveaxle when changing the alternator on 2004 Ford Escape

I have everything off but the driveaxle. Im not sure how to break it loose. In the manual it says to carefully pry it off with a pry bar or large screwdriver, but it seems like there is something else holding it to the intermediate shaft.

If you have everything off and it is out of the steering knuckle then all there is left to do is pry it out. Once you break it free a little bit it will come right out. It might just have a little rust freeze so spray a little penetrating oil on it and try again. You may have to 'shock it' out a little with a hammer.
