Best options are to use a slide hammer which you can rent from parts store or a punch and a hammer. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The axle is held with a normal retaining ring and it's just a matter of using enough force in a quick manner to get it to pop loose. This is assuming there is no damage. If the splines are damaged or rusted together then you may not get the axle off without cutting it.

The best way to get them to pop loose is to use a long prybar, preferably with a striking cap, and put the end of it in the inside part of the inner joint. Using the prybar as a punch, hit it with a four pound short handled sledge and it should pop off in a couple hits if nothing is damaged and you use enough force. If you're trying to do the job on the ground that's going to make it tougher to be able to use enough force to get it to come loose.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
