Default ABS sensor removal?

Anyone know how to remove the speed sensor in the rear on a 4 channel rear ended? I took the bolt off and it wonít come out. I donít wanna be prying on it and break it.

Also does anyone know if itís possible to remove the C clips when thereís a axle bearing saver in it? Wanted to replace my axles and I know thereís axle bearing savers in the car and if thereís really no way to get the c clamps out Iím just going to return everything and hope for the best with the axles that are in it still.

They tend to get a little stuck in the round holes due to rust, plus metallic particles and brake dust sticking to the magnet. Do not pry on them. Try to rotate it free by twisting. You can probably help matters by removing as much as you can of the junk clinging to them first. I think that would be enough to get the axle C-clips off (a magnetic pickup tool will assist you there), but I have no experience with axle bearing savers.

There are many horror story threads about axle saver bearings and then trying to get the c-clips out.
