right hand cv replacement

I'm replacing the right handside cv axle on my daughters Liberty. When I pulled out the cv shaft the whole axle wants to come out with it. what's up?? I'm thinking this isn't good!!

if youre replacing the CV joints its usually 2-3 foot long when u pull it out, thats cause the end of the shaft connects to the gearing. scared me the first time too lol

whats suppose to hold in the side gear in the differential? All the directions I see say it will stay in the housing and just the cv shaft should come out.

The right side CVs connect to the intermediate shaft. More than likely it will need to be replaced as well since they rust together and the splines are either worn badly or rusted up.
Cheapest place for OEM intermediate is ericautoparts@aol.com, 70 bucks plus shipping or call 800-270-5224.
Also NAPA has the best remaned CVs 60-65 for them with trade in of old one.
Forget Autozone and those other places, not good, some are made too short etc.
But anyways if you are doing one do both pieces, CV and intermediate. I've done several so far and no problems later

If you need any help let me know, I'm only 30-45 minutes away from you and like I said have done quite a few of them
