Is this under the corrogated rubber boot or under the rubber flap in front of the boot?

First things first..
1) Leave the pump in...It will make pulling the hat back much easyier
2) Undue the clamps that hold the accordian boot(Black boot)
3) Pull back the acordian boot and carbon seal
4) Now with the boot and carbon seal movable,Push the hat back toward the back of the boat.youll see a C-Clip on the driveshaft..Take this C-Clip off..(The hat is a little bit of a pain in the arse..Either get the tool to push it back or grab a second set of hands)
5) Now that the C-Clip is off go ahead and take your pump off.
6)Once the pump is off Slowly pull the driveshaft out.Dont just yank it out cause there is a floating bearing in the PTO side of the engine that can seperate when pullin out the shaft..Once the driveshaft is out youll probley want to put a rag under the PTO cause youll probley have some oil leak out were the driveshaft goes into the engine..

SNOMAN!!! AWESOME DESCRIPTION!!
WORKED PERFECTLY!! 2 QUESTIONS:
1- iS THE DRIVESHAFT SUPPOSSED TO LOOK LIKE THIS ON THE END OR IS MINE WORN IN SOME WIERD WAY?
2- IS THERE AN O-RING THAT GOES ON THE END OF THE DRIVESHAFT THAT GOES INTO THE ENGINE? IF SO, CAN i JUST GET A SMALL ONE AT THE LOCAL HARDWARE STORE OR DO I NEED TO ORDER IT FROM SEADOO?

The shape of the drive shaft splines is fine. The arch is for lateral movement of the shaft. However, there is suppose to be a plastic cap on the end. You might want to stick a finger into your PTO coupler and see if it is in there.

Thats not an O ring that goes there.there is a small rubber gromet that goes on there to act as a spacer.Yes it has to go on there and no you cant get it from a auto part store.That is something you have to get from the dealer or Jerry..If you dont mind me asking were did the other one go???
If you look on the diagram its number 34.....
As far as the splines???They look fine..your driveshaft is OK
