They should just come out
So jack the car up remove the wheel. Then remove allan bolts from the cv shafts and the should just come out. Does the car need to be jacked on both side or just on side at a time. First timer here sorry.

Jack up both sides and put on jack stands. Safety first.

As they are CV shafts, you can put a prybar in between the end of the shaft and either the diff or hub and pry it slightly to pop it out.
