The axle comes out first through the spindle. You need to remove the wheel hub bearing first by removing the 4 nuts on the back side of the spindle and then you can knock the axle and seal through the spindle to remove it.
I have hub assembly off im down to the spindle and axle how do I remove the axle its loose but something in the spindle is holding it and I cant knock it out what is your advice on getting the seals and stuff out of the inside of spindle do I knock it from the back of spindle where the yoke is and drive it toword the wheel side and whats your advice on doing that without tearing anything up
It may not quite pop out like we would all like, but it should break free. It does take some effort and can be frustrating even for myself. Best case scenario would be to do everything from the back side and pry or hammer in the direct you want the axle to come out.
Yes, that would not be a bad idea.
