lots more steps and torque settings. RTM?
Assuming you are actually talking about a CV axle, Jack and secure vehicle. Remove wheel. Drop the lower control arm by bolt or ball joint, remove the large nut on the axle with a large impact.
(do the nut before the suspension drop)
Pull the spindle hub off the end of the shaft to free the axle end. Then when clear pull the shaft straight out of the transaxle. There may be bolts to remove if it is a two piece shaft. 3 or 4 bolts on the shaft near the transaxle. take those out and remove shaft.
best done on a lift, but there are 2 ways. 1- purchase a slide hammer from any auto parts or harbor freight, and get the cv axle remover adapter to screw on the end. Slide between the axle where it meets the trans and operate the slide hammer. (Assuming you are already with unbolting the wishbone, lower ball joint, etc...) 2- is to wedge a prybar between the axle and transmission to pop it out. The wrong leverage can destroy your transmission.
Check the axle shaft seals where the two drive axles enter the transaxle. If leaking there the axle will have to be removed to replace the seal. Look at the bottom pan of transaxle. If leaking from pan gasket, the pan will have to be removed and transmission drained to replace pan gasket. There is a transaxle main shaft seal on the front of transaxle, hidden by the bellhousing that mounts to rear of engine.. If the shaft seal is leaking, fluid will be dripping from bottom of bellhousing, and when inspection cover is removed, fluid will be evident inside the bellhousing. Check also the transmission fluid cooling lines, where the two lines exit the transaxle case, and go to front of car to an external cooler mounted in front of radiator, or going into a separate reservoir in the radiator.
Jack up car and apply e-brake. car will roll if one of the front tires leaves the ground. remove tire , spindal nut and lower ball joint bolts. remove axle from hub then use a prybar to pop it out of trans. the passenger side will have a braket holding axle to engine , remove bolts from braket or squeeze snap-ring to rmove axle from braket.
raise you vehicle on jackstands. remove front wheel and tire.remove front caliper from steering knuckle assembly, remove rotor from hub by pulling it staright off. remove speed sensor bracket from strut assembly. remove hub and bearing to stub axle retaining nut. dislodge inner CV stub shaft retaining ringon transaxle assembly. insert small pry bar between transaxle case and inner CV joint by prying on it.remove strut assembly to steering knuckle bolts remove top of steering knuckle from strut assembly, then rotate CV assembly out of vehicle. Remove inner shaft from transaxle stub shaft grasp inner CV joint and interconnecting shaft and pull both pieces out at the same time. good luck!
To remove the axle, losen axle nut with tire on the ground if possable, much easier without air tools. Disconnect strut at top of spindle, outter tie rod, and lower balljoint. Using a prybar pop axle out of transaxle. Some of these steps may be alittle different for your vehicle, these are general directions. If you are compitent enough to do this job then these steps will get you through it. If these steps confuse you pay someone else to do it.
-use common sence and block the car up safely before working on it.
-Remove large spindle nut on end of axle shaft. (loosen the nut before jacking up the car unless you are using an impact wrench)
-disconnect tie rod from spendle
-disconnect lower ball joint
-push the axle shaft through the spendle and pull the spendle unit aside. hold out of the way with mechanics wire.
-pull axle shaft out of transaxle (it may be necessary to use a pry bar inbetween the transaxle and inner cv joint. be carefull not to crack the transaxle housing) it should just pull straight out.
Removal (3000GT AWD) 1. Remove air cleaner cover, air hoses and vacuum pipe. Remove air cleaner, intake hose, battery, battery tray and washer tank. 2.

Disconnect tie rod ends and lower arm ball joints. Remove right support member, starter cover (if equipped) and starter. 5. Remove left side bearing bracket mounting bolts and pry left axle shaft from transaxle. Wire left axle shaft and inner shaft assembly aside. Pry right axle shaft from transaxle and wire aside. 6.
