Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I read your notes and ready to help. The inner part of that drive axle is held in by a spring type clip at the end of the stub shaft , so you have to either pry or drive it out. What I usually do is to drive it out using a bar and hammer hitting it on the joint housing closest to the diff. Have someone hold the outer part of the axle as you hit the bar driving that housing away from the diff. It would be good to replace the axle .I will supply you with some pics and a video that may help. although the vehicle in the video may not me yours it is however the same process .

As you notice they are different so look closely at the ends, one bolts on the other has to be driven out and carefully taped back in as per the video I sent.

here is a pic of that clip holding the axle in, always good to replace them too.
