    The CV axle remnant will easily pry out of the differential using a screwdriver or prybar. Good luck with the repairs.

    A ball joint fork as a pry bar always works easy for removing the axle from the trans for me.

    I like the harbor freight ball joint separator for the lower ball joint, though the socket wrench trick is great option as well. For the latter, you can find a video.

    Correct. It should come with a lifetime warranty. The new axle nut should be included as well.

    Before you remove the bad axle from the transmission, drain the MTF. Replace the axle seal in the differential next. When the job is done, fill transmission with fresh Honda MTF.

    There's also a trick to popping the axle fully into the differential, if you have a problem at that step.
