If that doesn't work, I would cut a notch in the axle in a good spot where you can use leverage to pry.

The above technic works very well. Don't be afraid to really hit it! Love taps won't get it out, give it a nice solid firm smack and it should pop right out. Try and keep the axle as level as possible. Sometimes rotating the axle in between hits helps find that sweet spot as well. You will get it out!
