Cant get axles to pull out

They are held in by a internal snap ring, to remove you must pull straight out with allot of force in a quick jerking motion, it is not easy trust me, i have spent hours getting them out.

Exacly how to remove rear brake drums ? 2001 Ford Focus SE. I don't want to remove the hub & spindle. I simply want to replace the drums & Brake shoes.

The drum and hub are one assembly on that vehicle so you will need to remove the dust cap in the center of the drum and remove the large axle nut. The drum/hub/bearing assembly will then pull off of the spindle.

If you want to replace the drum you will either have to find one with a bearing already installed, Have your old bearing pressed out of the old drum and pressed into the new drum, or have new bearings pressed into the new drum.

When installing the new drum it is very important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. I can get that spec for you if you need it.

How do I change the front passenger CV joint?

Easiest approach is to change entire axle. Depends on car, but generally remove wheel, remove axle nut, loosen lower ball joint and separate wheel assy from a-frame. In some cases, tie rod end must be taken loose. Wheel bearing assembly must now be pulled out swinging about the strut to allow axel spindle to come out of the bearing. Once axle is out of the bearing, place a drip pan under the trans and pull the axle out of the trans. Reverse procedure to reinstall.
