That is called an outdrive. Through the hole you can see the shaft which has a flat spot. Turn the frontwheels until the flat spot is shown and screw it.

The grub screw stops the outdrive spinning on the pinion shaft coming out of the diff housing, when you put the grub back in use blue (medium) threadlock so it stays there.

The problem is you will need to remove the rear diff and hold the pinon in place to make sure when you tighten down the grub screw the mesh between the pinion and ring gear is correct.
