Yes keep the axle straight and use a pry bar right where the axle meets tranmission and give it a quick pry, it should pop out. Toyotas I find are the hardest axles to get to pop out, (dont know why) dont be afraid to give it a good yank. Hope this helps

Yes I understand that works on the rh/drivers side(short, one piece), but on the lh/passengers side im getting know were. This is the 2 piece split shaft. The bearing in the housing that connects the 2 shafts is froze in the housing! I'm removed a "ring" that seems to hold the two shafts together and still NO luck. Should the complete axle (both shafts) be completly removed out of the transmission? I've PULLED, BEAT, BANGED and then some! Is there something I'm missing? Does the transmission need to be in netural, etc? HHHHHHEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPP:(

The only way to get the pass side out is to remove the whole assy, engine mount and all, then press the axle from the mount.

Hello and thank you for your help. I've got the housing of the axle bearing unbolted from both the motor & the motor mount but the top of the housing, which is attached to the motor mount, will not come off! Any sugestion, tips, etc? I've been told that you have to "beat" the bearing from the house? I've considering cutting the housing just leaving a portation of the top that's connected to the motor mount, but I'm not sure it that piece will still come off from the motor mount still yet! Looks as if I might have to get it towed to a shop for them just to get this d ##$ $&m ! Thing out!
