Angry Day two of trying to get half shaft out

I have a 2011 polaris ranger 800 xp with a stuck half shaft directly from hell. Been trying for two days to remove. I started with pry bars...no luck. Moved on to slide hammer and rust penetrating spray....no luck. Now I have made a seal with clay around the half shaft to allow the rust penetrating spray to be held in place over night. Next move will be to remove other shaft and try to pound out with a drift. Anyone have tips on something that worked for you? I do not want to go to the Polaris stealer and get charged enormous amounts of $$$$$.

Mine was stuck also, I found quick hard hits inward on the shaft finally released it for me, it builds up with dirt inside around the snap ring, so if you beat it in it will knock the stuff out or free it up so pry bars will be able to pop it off , and i was mad so my hits were hard and true lol

Don't try to knock it out from the other side. They are plugged on the inside and if you knock one out you will need to Take the transmission apart to put it back in.

Too late! Why do these plugs not show on the parts diagram? Oh well. Looks like I get to take it apart.

They keep the lubricant in and the water and dirt out that seeps in around the cv joint splines.

Finally got the stuck drive axle out! Who knew all you had to do was break the case and it would fall right out!

I use Kimball Midwest Torq "CB" penetrating oil. I've removed dozens of shafts. Spray on and let it soak for a few hours and the shafts will come out. Works great on any rusted nut like exaust also. Just wondering if the "Polaris Stealer" who knows what they were doing would have charged. Sometimes it's a lot cheaper to have an expert do the job.

Unfortunately for me I'll only go so far as I feel my machinal ability allows. I bought a Polaris power steering kit for my daughters Ace 570. I took it to the dealer. More then I wanted to try to figure out and install incorrectly. If my clutch or tranny needed work. I'd take it in. I envy the true gearheads as I understand I'm not one.
