Axle removal...or lack of removal.

NEVERMIND. A bit more penetrating oil and one good whack finally knocked it free!.
I followed the step by step in the tips section as I need to check the bearings and got to the part just after removing the circlip on the drive side.
I should be able to slide the axle out, correct? Or am I missing something simple?
The pic below shows where I am.
I tried tapping it with a rubber mallet but it didnt move. I didnt want to hit it too hard.

eep opp ork ah ah

Mine was very tough also. I couldn't get it off with the swingarm on the bike, and as it was I did some minor damage to the swingarm pivot surfaces where it connects to the frame from the belting with the rubber mallett. This was beacause there was sideways play in the swingarm after I released the adjuster nut (mistake). No big deal, just a little filing and a touch with a wetted diamond stone.
So my advice if you're having this trouble is either remove the swingarm which makes it much easier, or make sure you don't have any side to side play in the swingarm when you're tapping that axle.
