No,the long gear is a sliding fit in the end of the housing but the corrosion/electrolosys is probably holding it in. Clean any old grease out of the housing and then soak in penetrating fluid and let it sit for an hour or so.
The spindle should be free to rotate in the housing before you try to pull it out. If the penetrating oil doesn't work on it's own, you may have to dry off the housing, apply heat until it is too hot to touch, and then douse it with penetrating fluid again, all the while gently trying to get the steel gear to rotate in the aluminium housing. When you try to rotate the long gear with pliers be very careful not to break off the tang that drives the actual speedo cable. You could preferably try to get between the end of the worm gear and the housing with a very thin screwdriver and very gently try to induce some movement before grabbing the tang at all.
Watch for the 2 shim washers, 1 on each side of the actual geared section of the spindle. They usually get lost.
Good luck,
