I can't remove the rear axle from my polaris scrambler. I followed the manual, removed the hibs, sprocket, brake disk, O-rings, loosened the swing arm housing bolts and removed the retention ring

When you jacked up the rear of the machine, you could move the rear axle about an 1" from front to back...lots of play. So I'm assuming the bearings are shot in the swing arm housing. The manual states to remove the seal and bearing race from the opposite side...but that's after the axle has been removed.

Usually a slide HAMMER is required to remove an axle.

Check Princess Auto for a SLIDE HAMMER
