Man sorry to hear. Big hammer and prying sounds like the best bet. The only addition I can chime in with is might as well dump some pb blaster on it

Haven't worked on an xi before, I checked around and saw some threads about somewhat the same issue, but on the e46xi's. Looks like it gets stuck like that because the clip on the new axel is not the same as the oem one. So if you get it off just swap out the clip on the axel. How they got it off was to put a long screwdriver from the other side and whack the heck out of it. See that you tried that already though, man what a pain.

Good god, that sounds awful. If you have any photos of this atrocity that would be an entertaining way to end the thread, though I'm sure you can't wait to forget :)

Yo
I'm not out of the woods yet.

Car is worth $5-7k Canadian. Maybe more to me, but, all these parts are adding up, and I've exhausted my free time on this.

If it aint an easy fix to get it running well before i send it for an alignment, im done.

You can do it Fred.
