    I took the axles apart 1 piece at a time from under the car. This was last when I did my clutch swap.

    mine is exceptionally difficult as well.. if you have access to a impact hammer and compressor u can do what i did and just give the axle a quick shot with the air hammer.. popped right out

    tried the air hammer, pry bars, all kinds of wedges and forks. what i ended up doing was taking apart the new axle and using the part of the axle stuck on the halfshaft and used a big zip tie to hold the boot secure
