When I replaced all 4 of mine I didn't remove the stub axle from the hub, I unbolted the allen head bolts from it but you have to have the inner CV bolted up to the transmission flange in order to put the prybar in between the allen head bolt heads to keep the axle from turning while loosening and tightening the outer CV allen head bolts.

The emergency brake should hold it in place from turning too but if you're doing all this while laying on the ground under the car while it's up on jackstands like I do the long prybar trick is a lot easier and faster because you don't have to get out from under the car again and again during the whole process.

I guess you could remove the big castellated nut from the end of the stub axle and pull it out of the hub with the outer CV on it. Thats thing is on there real tight though, and goes back on real tight.
