Q: Removal of the rear axle from the rear deferential, any special way to do so? Pulling on it doesn't work.

asked by on

We are replacing the rear deferential and need to get the axle out.

My car has an automatic transmission.

There is a special axle remover tool or a slide hammer that can cause the axle to release from the housing.
