Releasing front axle from the diff

Ok, I've got the LHF axle out of the knuckle assembly and ready to pull out, what's the trick for getting it out of the diff? It doesn't appear anything holding it on there, so I've been trying to pop it loose with a pry bar, but don't want to mess anything up. Thanks!

It pops out. You gotta pry harder or take two pry bars and pry at the same time.

Slide hammer with a L-Shaped hook on the end works good too.

I got it. Needed a few light taps with a hammer and it popped right out. Got my axle rebooted and my strut bushing replaced today. Stoked everything worked out. Thanks for all the help.
