2007~2015 Help with Rear CV axle removal 2010 CX-9

I am replacing the drive side rear bearing hub and cannot get the axle out of the spline in bearing!

I’ve tried hammering, I’ve used a puller, pry bar, etc. is it possible the spline teeth are seized? Or did I miss something?

I ordered a new cv axle expecting the current one is no good but I still need suggestions on removing the old one.

Any help would be appreciated!
