Default HELP!! with my RS4 2

okay on the front axle assembly behind the flange lock nut, there is the small silver pin that keeps the thread on the correct side of the axle. i can get the pin to move back and forth but i cannot get the thing out. what is the easiest way to get that thing out, i have tried to use oil to break the friction and let it slide out, and it still doesn't budge, i can get the pin so that 1 side is flush with the axle but i cannot get it past that point.

ANY HELP IS WELCOME!! thanks

Try pushing the axle in from the back side. That should free up the pin. You could also thread the wheel nut on and pull it from the front with the same result. If the pin is damaged you could try driving it out. Use a flathead screwdriver to get the pin flush with the axle. Then use an ice pick, awl or somthing simalar to press it through.

Good luck

I usually spray it with WD40 and then use a set of pliers or vise grips ang pull it out. Beware this can damage the pin, so you might need to buy a new one. I've broke too many tools trying to poke the pin through.

ive tried a little flat head screw driver and all that does is seem to get stuck, ill try the WD40 and if worse comes to worse ill just buy the whole new assembly.
