Default thru axle stuck

Hey guys,
does anyone have a trick for removing the axle in a psylo thru axle?
I guess at some point it got a little over tightened and now i can't
pull it back out. I pulled off the little cap part with the lever,
and now i'm stuck????? It's driving me crazy. I took off the qr's
and tried to gently pry the clamping part open a little, but i can't
get the thing to budge. Please help!!!!!! I need to change my tire.
Thanks, -Todd


Can you drive it out with a socket of about the same size?

I have not tried a socket, but i don't understand what you're
suggesting? it's a round threaded cylinder, i'm not sure where i
could get a good enough grip on it to turn it??? Ahhh, i want to put
my new tire on!!!!!!- Todd


Sorry I didn't know it was threaded in. If it was a metal sleeve through
the drop outs like a Boxxer you could tap it out using a socket of the same
diameter as the axle. Depending on the ID of the axle you may be able to
find a bolt extractor to thread in and break the axle free. I'd soak the
threaded portion in penetrating oil first.

job.
