Remove the c-clips and pull the shafts outward. I don't mean to be offensive or insulting but if you don't know how to remove the axles, should you be trying to install a new R&P on your own?

also...one very important tip that i was looking for that i never got is this...the hubs are an absolute bear to get out...a very helpful tip i found on another forum is to take an 1/2" extention and place it between the axle and one of the 4 bolts holding the hub to the steering knuckle and use the power steering to press the hub out. VERY helpful tip
