Salisbury axle question HELP!!!!!

So had a leak on the rear of my 89 110, coming out both axle shafts, started replacing the seals at the hubs today. Missed the sir clip as I was in a hurry, pulled the 5 17mm bolts and went to pull the cover and then realized it when the axle shaft started to come out with the cover. Pushed it back in after pulling the sir clip off, but must have pushed it in too far as upon reassembly there isn't enough of the axle shaft to put the sir clip back on. Have tried to use the sir clip to help pull it back out but it is hun on something. Any ideas? Have had suggestions of putting a self tapping screw into the end of the axle to help pull it out. ?????

Thanks

Remove the flange and pull the half shaft out and put back together.

Pry or tap on it. Maybe spin the other wheel. It won't be in there hard. The shaft is very strong. You won't hurt it.

If all that fails pull the shaft out on the other side and get a long rod small enough to stick through the opposite side and through the diff. You should be able to tap it out that way. That trick worked for me on the broken front Salisbury shaft with an ARB in it. I used a long piece of all-thread to poke through and tap the broken shaft loose. I think I used something like a 1/4" all-thread.

Thanks Dan, that did the trick ... used an old metal broom handle, LOL a few taps with a hammer and popped right out, she was stuck in there pretty good for some reason.

All wrapped up. Time to hit the hay
