Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
When removing front drive axle after the calliper and disk and three retaining bolts how do you get the axle out???
There's a snap ring on the end of the axle inside the differential. You need a large flat-blade screwdriver to use as a prybar between the diff and the edge of the axle where they touch. Lever it back and forth while you pull and yank on the outer end of the axle shaft (just inboard from the CV joint rubber boot), and you'll be able to pop it out. It may take some swearing and grunting, but it'll pop out.
