How to remove drivers side front Axle

Post by mdelfunt » Sun Apr 15, 2018 3:57 am

Hey team, we are pulling the tranny from my 05 freestyle. When trying to remove the drivers side axle, it refuses to come out. We don't want to break anything so we want to make sure there's no secret to getting it to let go. From what we can see, it seems like it should just pull straight out. Can someone confirm? 
Thanks,
Mark

Driver side pulls right out. Used slide hammer with U to side in behind the axle to pull mine out. Spring retention clip holding the the Axle in.

Dan is correct. I don't have the U attachment for my slide hammer, so I always just go up underneath the car with a big flat-blade screwdriver and pop it out.
