Welcome to the best prowler site.thats how you do it.plunge in your inner cv joint and pull out real hard,not sure what year your working on.or you could try to plunge it in and pull it out of the Diff with the inner cv plunged in.

I would not pry it. I think you would just cause damage that way. A dealer on another site told me to just grab the bar, push in and then just yank back on it real hard (which I did and it worked great). I was worried about messing something up internal in the boot, but he said it wouldn't hurt anything. Worked great for me.

That's how I did all the quad axles I worked on.

I have a el cheapo slide hammer that I use on pulling CV joints, worked on my Volvo, Kia, and sons SHO. I think I gave around 25 dollars for it at Harbor Freight, can't hurt it, and it is something that you only use seldom!

The parts manual is showing that all Prowlers 2011 and up use the clip, and detent pins on all of the front and rear axles, 2010 show clip only.
