Driver's side half shaft removal on 1999 Hyundai Elantra

How do you get the half shaft out of the steering knuckle?

With the axle nut off to its last threads the axle should tap backward toward the gearbox when tapped with a hammer (preferably a brass hammer). The Hyundai workshop manual show a puller / press that has its "legs" secured to the hub by means of the lug nuts while a screw is tightened pressing the axle spindle inwards but in 30 years of working on cars I've never seen any one at the dealer or independent repair shops.
