A hammer and a suitable punch can be used to drive the axle out of the hub.
A large prytool can be used to disengage the halfshaft from the transaxle. Care must be taken as to what is used to pry on for leverage, prying on the wrong item can cause damage.
Be sure the halfshaft is fully engaged in the transaxle. Verify that the halfshaft is seated by grasping the inner joint housing and pulling outward. Do not pull on the shaft or the boot, but on the inner joint housing only.
