How to remove a snow blower impeller?

I have a 917.881151 craftsman snow blower. the impeller is bad on the unit and would like to replace it. I have pulled apart the unit and have the pulley off the back so I have access to the flange bearing assembly, however, I do not know how to remove the impeller from the auger shaft. The shaft will not slide out of the flange bearing assembly (don't know if it should or not to begin with). I have removed all the bolts connecting the impeller to the auger shaft and the auger bearings are also detached from the sides of the housing... Just don't know how to get the impeller off the shaft to replace it.... and the snow is coming soon!!! .... Please help:-)
