As in the entire axle? Or just the axle shafts?

Drain diff fluid. Pull diff cover. Rotate diff till you can see the c clips. Use magnet or long pliers to remove. Pull axles out.

You have to remove the pinion shaft too, or the axles will not push in and allow the C-clips to be removed.

BUT!!!

Before pushing the axles in remove the ABS sensors from the backing plates--if this is not done they can be damaged.

Here is the axle removal procedure from the shop manual...
