Default Brake dust shield removal

New here...with my first Chevy ever. Itīs a 1999 S10 LS 4wd. Iīm in the process of removing brake calipers, rotors and brake dust shields on the rear and front. All vent fine until i needed to remove brake dust shield. How do you do it? Do i need to remove the axel to do it? Seems to be alot of work just to get the brake dust shield out.

Iīve sent for a workshop manual (DVD), but i thought i post my question here while waiting for it...

....havenīt got the manual yet...but it looks like below. There are no more bolts to remove as i see it...when i spin the hub on each side both hubs move....do i have to yank each hub out with force to get them loose? I canīt damage anything that way? Hope you can see what i mean on the pics....

looks like the rear dust shields you were speaking of...we thought you meant the front. To remove those(rear axles) you'll need to remove the rear cover, then you'll see a 5/16 hex head/bolt on side of carrier-remove with care, it's a locking bolt that holds in the 7/8" or so pin, slide out, push axles in to gain access and to remove C-clips then you can slide axle shafts out.

Got the manual...and now i understand what you meant...

I need to remove Rear Axle Housing cover to unveal the c-clip....and after that i can remove the axel all the way out.
