    c6 rear axle replacment question help!!!!

    did anyone ever change or know how to replace the rear half shaft on a 2011 corvette?the thing wont budge,and ill crack the differential if i pry on the thing anymore,my local gm service said there might be some special tools to use,nobody did one yet on one. The new one looks like a regular c-clip on the end like any old axle???

    whats going on, the car was hit on suspension it might of twisted something in the differential...any help would be appreciated..I'm just staring at it this morning..this is bad ???

    Those shaft look like any regular FWD half shafts. Take the nut out from at the knucke, you will need to loosen and fee one of the A-arms to take it out from the bearing. Once free, just pry it on the diff side. Try on different sides or rotate it if you can.
    Diff side is held only by C clip
