If you have unbolted everything from the axle and it is still stuck, try prying it away from right where it enters the transmission, with a large, flat screwdriver. The axle shaft is held into the transmission by an expanding C-clip that needs some coaxing to get out. Make sure the new axle has that C-clip when you reinstall it, or the axle will pop back out while you're driving.

How di i install frontr axle on 97 eclipse

Try lining up the splines on the axle with the tranny, then tap the end of the axle (goes thru the wheel hub) with a brass hammer. Should be tight, but dont hit it hard enough to damage the axle shaft. If it still wont go in, look at the splines on the transaxle, they may be damaged.

You will need to take the ring gear housing off to get to the retaining clip inside the chunk. Once removed the axil will come out. I had a 47 and that is what I had to do

I would like to know how to check the proper level of AT fluid in my 4 speed AT for a 2008 Malibu 2.4L. Thanks

You need to be able to get under the car safly! Car running in park as flat to the ground as possible. There is a 11mm headed bolt by the final drive on the passenger side of the car. Look on the tranmission by the passenger drive axle. With the car at operating temp you remove that bolt, then you fill the trans till a very small amount of fluid starts to come out. If it's gushing out then let it keep going until it slows to a small amount. that is the proper way to check it. Please note that that tranmission takes the new dextron VI fluid.

First put a jackstand under the car have it jacked up fairly high where you can get under it easily then take a really strong regular screw driver or a small pry bar slide up between tranny and the axle piece you are trying to get out and tap with your hand or a rubber mallet the bottom of the pry bar or the handle of the screw driver towards the opposite side of the car of what you are working on.

I need help getting the transmission out of a 89 plymouth sundance I am stuck on the tri axel and dont know what I have to do to get it out, its all unbolted I just need it to fall is there a diagram or...

I assume by tri axle you mean driveshafts. If the driveshafts are still in then you need to remove them both. Unbolt them from the steering knuckles ( unbolt the ball joint, axle nut, sway bar assy ) move the knuckle assy out of the way and then the axles should pry out at the tranmission end ( screw driver between axle end and trans housing should do the trick). Hope this helps.
