I've dug through a bunch of the posts but haven't been able to come up with a clear answer so I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm attempting to replace my passenger side CV Axle. I see some users say to remove the axle and the intermediate shaft and separate them on a bench, and other users saying to use a slide hammer and claw. I'm hoping to go the slide hammer and claw route but didn't know where exactly I should be placing the claw to pull (I'm assuming on the outside of the support bearing). Also is there any risk of damaging the support bearing when trying to remove the old CV axle from the intermediate shaft using the slide hammer?
