Remove the hub--(I believe there are 3 bolts on the inside face of the Knuckle) ...This leaves you a 7" diameter hole in the knuckle......There is just a Circlip on the trans end of the shaft. A moderate pry, with a "Snapping" motion , will dislodge the clip...pull the axle out thru the hole where the hub was.
