The axles are retained in the diff by a spring clip it is usually not that uasy to release the axles but if you use a small tyre lever between the diff housing and the cv housing and do so gently they should come out.

The passenger side has a inner and outer shaft and you would remove the axle nut and shaft from spindle then the center bracket and bearing (two bolts against engine block), sliding out the axle assembling at that point, or jerking it out, careful not to pull on the cv axle end but rather the jack, or inner, shaft. After removal, separate the middle by hanging upside down and taking a hammer to it, striking the inner shaft while turning around. Dont hit the dust shield or seals. Install in reverse order. Quick tip: you may get around removing ball joint by only removing both strut bolts, and possibly tie rod end bolt.
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.
loosen the axle nut and then put the car on jack stands. take the tire off and then you have to remove the brake caliper, pop the lower link and tie rod loose. if you have a friend you can loosen the strut mount bolts and hold it to the side when you pull the axle. you can hammer the axle out of the wheel side but you will need a large pry bar or large flat head to pop the inner cv hub out. there is a retainer ring on the axle that keeps it popped in the trans. it will take some force to pop it out and sometimes there is indents on the cv to aid in the removal. be careful when prying against the trans. good luck
Not much to it, remove wheel,remove axle nut,remove bolt and nut that pinch lower ball joint in place,it will either be an 18mm or a 21mm,pry lower control down to detach and separate ball joint,tap CV shaft in where you took the nut off, hold out on rotor assembly while pushing CV shaft in ward,When you have the CV out of the bearing and rotor assembly,Tap inside CV joint out of transmission.
Pretty easy if your mechanically inclined. Raise the vechicle and put it on jack stands. Remove the tire unbolt the outer tie rod hit around it a few times with a hammer since its been in for awhile and that will release it unbolt lower ball joint hit around it with your hammer you'll need a pry bar pry down on the lower control arm so the ball joint will pop out of the knuckle. Remove the cotter pin from the center bolt then remove the center bolt which may be between a 21mm to a 30mm before you completely remove the bolt tap on it a few time to loosen the axle from the bearing. Pull the spindle toward you and the axle should come out. With your pry bar pry the inner shaft out from the transmission. take the new one put it back into the tranny tap on it lightly with the bolt back on because you dont want to ruin the threads and once it flushes just put it back through the spindle put the ball joint back in put the tie rod back on tighten everything dont forget to put cotter pins back in. Sounds like fun I have to do one this weekend Good luck
your kind of screwed because that is your spider gear pin. you will need to remove the differential unit and install the pin but probably need to replace the bolt that is supposed to hold that pin in place.
