If your looking to replace them, wich is what most do today, it is cheaper to purchase a axle with new cv joints than to rebuild them. It is a very simple job in todays cars, remove tires remove lower tie rod , remove nut in center of the rotor and pull wheel assembley to the side hanging from the strut, pull axle out replace the transmission seal, push new axle in. When putting wheel assembley on, use a hydraulic jack on bottom of the rotor to push it to the axle splines and put the new nut on .

Hi if you are %100 sure you have undone all the bolts holding it in then the chances are it is just stuck if the car has been running hot then the gasket in between tends to weld the sump onto the engine.
The only way to remove the sump is by either using a rubber hammer and keep hitting the sump on a strong point of the sump like the corners.
Or the other option would be get a flat screwdriver and gently go round the sump prying of the sump it will come off but with the heat of the engine the tend to weld together so just persivere and youll get their in the end
Let me know if you need further assistance ok
