Use flat rope? Half hitch that sucker three or four times and tug it the hell off.

Pull the boot off, find a way to get a slide hammer hooked good.

Maybe get a two jaw puller, it may fit behind the cv if it is thin fingers, then use the puller to hold on to and get some oomph on it.

Last ditch, maybe pry GENTLY between the case and the cv... careful prying against the case though!

Surrounded by awe inspiring amounts of open desert, attempting to explore every square foot of it.

Can you pull the passenger side axle and push the driver side stub out thru the differential?

Spray where it inserts into the diff with penetrating oil and let sit for about 30 mins. The splines rust inside the diff and get stuck.

There's another thread on here about this with a link to a slide hammer built for this . If that don't work after it's been sprayed clamp vise grips to it then connect a ratchet strap to vise grips then the other end to a fixed object and pull tension while tapping on it with a mallet it should pop out

Agreed. In the time it'll take to keep figuring / trying different ways to grab it and pull it out, you can just pull the opposite axle and tap this one out. Shouldn't take more than 10 - 15 minutes.

Re: How to pull rear axle that broke by diff? Xp4 1k

If I decide to pull the other side isn't there a chance the wrong c clip could give way and be stuck with both sides stuck ?

Also does the c clip break or just give in when you yank it out?

The C clip compresses into a groove when the inner cv is being removed/installed.

You can use a pry bar, or pull the other side and use a punch and a hammer. We usually use a pry bar.
