i believe there is a pry tool for it.. but most ppl just make sure the car is stable and give it a good strong quick yank..

If you just yank you have a good chance of separating the inner cv joint. Take the biggest screwdriver you have and place between shaft and tranny housing, then work it out, turning the joint as you do.

If the inner boot is torn he is going to have to separate the inner joint anyway to replace the boot.

Yank away bro, yank away!

Be real careful about yanking on them. They seem to come free at the most unexpected times (i.e. right when your gut is in the path of the end of the half shaft) you never do it twice though.

Get someone to tug of it a little and then pry at the same time if need be.

Oh and FYI, if the boot is torn and you catch it early and the shaft is still ok, you can just cut the bad boot off, remove the C-clip and seperate the shaft. Then just slide the new boot on the seperated shaft and reinstall the c-clip, shoot some grease in pull the boot over and tighten the clamps. I think you might even get away with that one on an LH without removing the axle nut.

the passinger side was no problem 4 or 5 hits is off
the drivers side is being tough I got every thing off down to the part of the CV joint that goes on to the trans shaft (the inter CV joint came apart).
I hit, banged, beat, pryed, yanked, cranked, heated, and tried a puller
I cant get it off the shaft.
i'm ready to cut it off with a cutting torch
