I am in the process of replacing my front wheel bearing on a '98 GTI VR6.  I
have the steering knuckle almost off, but I can't get the drive axle out of the
hub.  Is there a trick to this?  Does it need to be pressed out?  Should it
slide out? (the article in Library makes it sound like the axle should slide
ride out of the hub w/ minimal effort!).

thanks,

tom

Tom, I take off the driveshaft nut, and put it back on so it's threaded about
half way. Go find your persuader, I use a five pound hammer and smacker her
out. with the driveshaft nut on loosely it should prevent your hammer from
killing the threads on the driveshaft.
Hope this helps. good luck,
Shawn Loughran
