Default Trs won't come off

Ok so I'm in the process of replacing my transmission range sensor, I've diss connected the 2 bolts that hold the trs to the transmission, and also the nut that goes on that axle that passes through the trs. I then removed the shift linkage and now it's not attached to anything, yet it will not come off, supposedly it just pulls right off easily. It literally won't come off, any suggestions on what to do?

Crud has it glued to the housing, try a plastic putty knife to break the "seal" loose

Ok, I don't quite understand you though. Are you saying to Basiclly clean it and pry it up? There's not to much to move around though. I didnt want to pull on it too hard, didnt want to break it.. Is it usually hard to remove it off of the shaft?

A little penetrating oil around the shaft area,and around the outside of the housing ,use a plastic putty knife to pry,as to not gouge any surrounding areas
It'll come off, I had to replace one on my truck after 195k on the motor, took about 10 minutes to get the friggin thing to move.

Ok thanks for your info. When you say spray around the housing do you mean the transmission housing? And I'll spray some liquid wrench on it and pry away.

Yes, around the trans housing where the trs meets....this area of the engine compartment gets a ton of debris,combined with moisture,heat and time, it makes for a nice adhesive.

Ok so now the range sensor is loose from the transmission housing, i can move it around but it still won't come off of the axle. I've tried prying it and everything. I don't want to break the axle so I haven't pulled too too hard on it. Do you recommend yanking it really hard? Or maybe I should try and pry it harder?

Maybe you can get a small gear puller on it and remove it that way.

Ok I have a small gear puller I'll try to use after work and I'll report back with the results. One more question, can the axle shaft take a lot of stress? Cause I need to pull on the trs reallllllyyyyy hard to remove it.
