Polaris Trailblazer rear axle removal

Need a little direction on the axle removal steps on the Trailblazer. Looks like there is a C clip on the brake hub and axle nut. Axle nut turns both ways so far and tightens up. Am I right in assuming the axle nut needs the clip removed first and the axle will slide out to the left side of quad?

yes but then you may have some bearings that are worn out and binding against  the inside of the axle housing.

usually you can persuade them to let go with a block of wood and a hammer.

Thanks for the reply, axle is out. I agree with you on the Polaris quality/ realiability. After tearing this Trailblazer down to part out I see all the engineering marvel in this quad. What where they thinking?
