Here is a link about axle removal,

What you probably need is a tool similar to this, an axle removal tool,

If you haven’t a similar tool and are not going to reused the axle, here’s a trick. Cut a section off the end of the axle you are removing that is longer than the width of the bearing.

Use the cut piece and your mallet to bang the axle through the bearing. Hopefully you are trying to push the axle to the right, avoiding pushing the bent portion of the axle through the bearing.
