I need the proper tool for pulling cv shaft

Yes I know that i can pry around all day long trying to get the darn thing to pop out (i have for several weeks now)but i would like to find the correct tool to add to my collection.

I have several kia's, at the moment i am working on my 2004 Rio.the drivers side CV shaft got destroyed with what started out as a lug bolt replacement project.
now i have the outer section of the shaft sitting on the ground and the inner hub still connected to the transmission.
i have tried using an OEM brand adapter(OEM#27058) for my slide hammer,but it is to wide and to thick to fit between the trany and the hub.
And no! attaching a ratchet strap is out.
i know that the dealership's must have the correct tool but i can't get a straight answer out of them other than they can fit it in next week.
i have checked the snap-on and several other tool site's but don't really see anything that looks like it will work.also bought an adapter kit that allows me to use my channel locks to clamp on. didn't work either.

If you know of the proper tool please let me know,I am not going to make this any worse by prying on an aluminum transmission housing.

Kia doesn't offer a tool for techs to use to remove the cv axles. I've primarily used pry bars to remove them without an issue. Sometimes using one on either side of the axle will also work for stubborn ones.

Thanks Guys,
I am in the process of fabricating a puller that will clamp on to the inner part of the CV shaft that i can use with my slide hammer.
I didn't care to pry on the tranny as I have seen what the outcome can be=not cheap.
I know that the forum lists me as a newbie but I have worked as an auto mechanic and at on point had my own shop.
ie. been there done that.
