I am trying to replace the front passenger axle assembly in my 2001 CRV. Have performed this procedure before on another Honda- axle pulled right out. On this one, it will not come out. Is there anything besides the nut that has to be removed to release the axle? Thank you!

once you have released the outer joint from the hb assembly, you will need to have a large pry bar to opo the inner joint out of the transaxle. the internal clip can be very tight. Roy
