Holding CV centrally in vice, try tapping the outer casting equally, ie; first  tap and  second tap 180 degree opposite side etc (bit of wd40 around spline area should also help).

A shop press will do it. When I had 1.8 and 2.0 transaxle cars they would tap out easily with a hammer with the GTV6 and 75 no amount of tapping would move the shaft out of the CV

Tap the outer back onto its seat/shoulder. Wipe the circlip groove clean and inspect for burring - remedy as needed.

Use copper faced hammer to smack the central shaft through, finish with brass or copper drift once itís flush.

"Wipe the circlip groove clean and inspect for burring"
As CB said if you keep hitting the shaft you can burr or fold the top edge of the shaft into the recess for the circlip. If you have to hammer it out, hit in the middle away from the edges
