99 cavalier Drive axle question

05-01-2011, 09:08 AM
I am changing the wheel bearing in my 1999 cavalier. The problem I am having is getting the drive axle to come out of the hub. Have tried tapping it with a punch like Haynes says, and I also tried the 2 jaw puller method they discuss. Neither worked for me. The drive axle still won't budget. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

as long as you have taken the big nut off and the three bolts on the back side of the bearing it should come off

Done all that and the hub will still will not come off the drive axle. I can get the hub to separate from the knuckle, but that is it.
