CV Joint/Axle Help :/

Okay guys, well here is the dealio. My driverside CV Joint/Axle's outer boot was ripped and the axle started clicking. So I decided to replace it, blah blah blah. And I started this whole process at 10AM this morning, and I decided to call it quits at 9PM and I still hadn't even gotten the original axle out. So my question for you guys is how do I get the original axle out?!?! Like everyone is saying pull on it and then get under the car and try to pry it out from the intermediate shaft, but where are you guys prying from? Like I cannot see what I need to be prying here, but then again I also have terrible eyes :(

I have taken pictures of every step I took to get to where I am now, in hopes of creating a DIY for removing and replacing this axle. But I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me out here with just getting this axle out. I mean, it's already disconnected from the spindle/knuckle, the only thing holding it in is the inner part that is connected to the intermediate shaft. Soooo if I can get that out the removal process is done, and then I can start the replacement process, which I will also document with pictures. I just really wanna get my car back on the road, school starts back up Monday and I would rather not be riding the bus my last year of highschool. Thanks in advance guys

Put a chain around the axle and use a slid hammer .It should come off with a couple pulls.
GOOD LUCK...........

Re: CV Joint/Axle Help :/

Just grab the axel and yank ur a$$ off. It should come right out. There may be a part that stays in the tranny in which case I used a crow bar n a 5lb sledge to get hammer it out. Took me 2 hrs doin it alone. 1st time. Keep @ it.

Re: CV Joint/Axle Help :/

slide hammer prob wont work it will just pull the cv shaft apart pull on the boot. He needs a good long pry bar like a 3 foot one at least and just get in between where the axle goes into the tranny and just give it a few good yanks. If it still doesn't work, use the pry bar and use it like a chisel and hammer the hell out of the back side of the cv housing hammering outward. Thing shoud pop right out. spray some rust penatraing oil where axle goes into tranny.

Re: CV Joint/Axle Help :/

Yeah what I was thinking, since I don't have a pry bar, could I use a screw driver and just pound the **** out of the back of the CV housing thing? I mean this is an old axle that I don't care about, so I mean it doesn't matter to me if I **** it up too bad

Re: CV Joint/Axle Help :/

Ended up going with a wooden block place on the back of the CV housing and hit the wooden block with a hammer a few times. Worked like a charm

good to see that you succeeded, theres nothing worse then getting stuck on something stupid when trying to complete a project. But nice job!

Is this what you hitting the Cv housing looked like? hahahah

Re: CV Joint/Axle Help :/

Hahaha to be entirely honest I hit it about twice then it started popping out, I hit it 3 more times and it flew out of the wheel well I ended up spiking it in the yard and then put it in the box that the new axle came in and once the project was done I proceeded to take the tools I rented and the box with my old axle back to autozone, wassup $90 cash back

Re: CV Joint/Axle Help :/

Yeah, brah, just put a block of wood on the back of the CV housing and then grab a hammer of your choice and proceed to beat the flying **** out of the block of wood. The CV Joint will soar out of the side of your car and come to an abrupt halt when gravity gives it the ol' downward kick.
