I had this problem on my 1997 aspire which is the same. You need to take a pry bar and just keep working the axle back and forth while turning it to get the circlip to compress and come through (the bearing in the differential was bad in mine so it was very difficult to get mine out, took an hour or so of working it loose a little at a time)be careful not to get overzealous and poke a hole in the aluminum housing with the prybar (as my helper did!)

How do you remove the rear axle of the 1991 subaru loyale?

I just did most of it today trying to get at the rear bearings. Break the axle nut (remove cotter pin) and lug nuts. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the wheel and axle nut. Remove drum. I removed the entire brake backing plate, but this should not be necessary. Disconnect the lower strut mount. Remove the bolts holding on the control arm and release the control arm. Now pull the hub off the axle. This can be done with a puller, or a hammer (I chose the latter). Remove the 5 bolts mounting the axle to the differential. You should now be able to work the axle out of the diff. Don't be surprised if differential fluid comes spilling out.
