Did the shop explain why the damaged occurred and if its a common risk?
They had a tough time pressing the half axle out from the carrier -- to the point where the frame on their 20-ton press started to bend. They said they thought it was at that point that the carrier got damaged. We were pretty surprised it was so hard to press it out since the car only had ~90k miles on it and the car has always lived in California (not much opportunity for rust).
