Removing an axel?????

I've been trying to remove a front axel on a 06 prowler, not having much luck getting it out of the diff, any hints out there,just can't seem to get it to slip through that collar (or wire ring) , i don't have a slide hammer, willing to try just about anything as i have to replace the diff seal.

Pull hard and straight sometimes they are tough to get out, there is a small retaining clip that holds it in just put your back into and give it a good even pull. If you push it in a bit and then give it a quick tug it will come out.

It doesn't take as much 'grunt'as you may think. Just make sure after each attempt you push the axle as far into the diff as possible before attempting to pull it back out again. What happens is, if you fail to pull it out of the diff and just keep pulling and pulling, the 'c' clip gets caught. Thats why you have to push the axle into the diff before attempting to repull it out. If you don't push it back in, the 'c' clip on the end of the spline can't expand and loosen a little bit, it just stays jammed.

Replaced about 4 axles in total on my Cat and none of them took more then two pulls aslong as I remembered that trick. I didn't know this, called the dealer and after he told me that I got it out on the first attempt.
Good luck

Good advise given already. Worse case pull the other side (if it comes easy) and tap the axle out from that side

take a small thin strap, one with a loop on each end would work best. one end in between the diff and the shaft. and in the other end, the biggest hammer you have. get someone to hold the shaft straight. swing the hammer. should jump out.

and.... once out remember to replace the circ-clips (do not reuse) and install the new ones flat side against direction thrust or you might be cursing the fact they won't stay in.

good luck

Like vertigo says make sure axle is pushed back into diff then give it quick pull and should pop right out.
