1994 Volkswagen Passat - removing the axle

Replacing left front axle, hub, and bearing. Trans bolts out, axle nut off, how do you get the axle out! Have the VR6 with manual tranny.

You can remove knuckle bolts and pull knuckle out enough to get axle out. But your camber will be tweaked. Inner axle will separate at trans flange.
