With a pry bar - it just pops out. Has a snap ring holding it in.

Bigger pry bar? Only thing holding it in is a snap ring - can't remember if that one is on the joint or in the trans. Regardless, it pops out.

I already told him the pry bar thing before and explained it very clearly. Your probably not prying in the right place or you are using a small pry bar. pry in between the tranny and the cv, turn a little bit do it again turn a little bit do it again eventually you will find the right spot.

i have also done it with a big flathead screw driver and a hammer. put end of the screw driver on the cv and pound the screw driver

Is this a 2 piece axle or just a 1
