Re: how do you remove a stuck cv from inside at trans...
Every one I've replaced was stuck. You need to jerk it out. I've pried carefully with a flat blade screwdriver and I've ised a small pry bar as well. Some have a ring on the end that keeps it from pulling out. You need to keep jerking at it and once the ring lines up it will just about fall out. Check and see if the new axle has a ring on it as well. Sometimes you need to move it from the old one onto the new one.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The CV Joint would have to come out, take the boot out. The cv joing is probably coming out of the end. There is like a washer that holds it in place and is possible that is out of place. I hope this helps!
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.
ok girl i guess its out of the knuckle and stuck in trans dont worry the retaining ring is stuck . use a large screwdriver or pry bar and big hammer. place in crack at axle trans and hit or get at a angle and hit till pops out . had one in jag took hours to pop out ring was broken on shaft and holding in. just stay at it and it will come out.
You need to remove the shaft to do a good job (I don't recommend the split boots). Once the shaft is out, I usually just replace the whole thing, as the difference in price between CV joints and shats is small compared to the labor of taking the CV off the axle. To change the shaft, you have to separate the lower ball joint and possibly the tie rod end as well. Remove the axle nut. Then you swing the hub assy away from the trans and pull the axle out of the hub. Next, put a drain pan under the trans in case it leaks a little with the axle out. Pull the axle straight out of the trans and reverse procedure to reinstall.
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.
the axle just pulls or snaps out of the trans, it is held in by an internal round spring clip, they are a real bear to remove the 1st time, u must pull straight out with a sharp jerking motion to get them to release, be patient it will come out.
