I have an 05 Altima with the CV casing rusted on to the carrier bearing bracket.
I cannot seperate them.
And yes I googled this and looked at the YouTube videos from 2014.
Tried using a punch to seperate them...... no movement.
Was wondering if anyone has any updated ideas / tricks.

Air-hammer with chisel attachment. I had an '09 done and by the time it was freed, the chisel had cut significantly into the outer housing steel--so this destroys the CV axle assy. If you are trying to preserve it, can you unbolt the carrier bearing bracket instead?

Thanks.
I will try the air hammer tonight.
I have a new half shaft waiting to go in.
Thanks for your quick response.

I am not 100% sure on the 05, but I ran into a similar issue on my 2010 passenger side.
The bracket itself was removable on the 2010 ,may be the same on 2005 , find the bolts and remove it all. Easily came off after a few hammer hits once out.

Good luck

Yes the bracket is removable.
I see 3 bolts.
It's a matter if I can reach them.
Thanks for your response.
