Also when removing the axle nut, white lithium grease will keep the threads from galling.
WD-40 is not a good lubricant at all, especially in this type of application
If it has abs be careful not to break any wires
It's not that bad really. If you just remove the joint clip's on the inner axle caps first and knock the joint caps out,then you will have the outer assy all by itself.
I was just using WD as a example. It may come off good,but you would be suprised how many outer axle stubs I sell for fords and jeeps because the threads get messed up when nut is removed.
