Axle Removal From Wheel Hub

Recommended Posts

I am working on changing the drivers side seal on the transmission. I have taken the nut off the axle but I cannot get it out of the wheel hub. It is rusted and/or stuck. All the videos and books just say "remove the axle" or tap gently with a hard plastic hammer and it will come out. Didn't work for me. I worked my way up from a plastic hammer to a small hand held sledge hammer and it won't move. I sprayed liquid wrench and set it set but no joy. I have protected the shaft threads during all the hammering. To those of you that have removed stubborn axles from the hubs, How Did You Do It?? Any tricks or just use a larger hammer? Thank you for your help.
