Stuck Hub

I need to get the hub of the drive shaft so that I can change the ABS ring but the hub is stuck solid and ideas on how to get it off? If I used heat would that destroy the bearing?

Re: Stuck Hub

Hello once you have taken the hub nut off and split the ball joint/track rod. Then the shaft should pull away from the gear box. Once you have done this put the hub nut back on the shaft until it is flush, then give it a couple of belts with a lump hammer, this should free it up. Hope this helps

Re: Stuck Hub

Thanks for the replies I have tried a hub puller and that did not help the hub pull was done up so tight it was starting to dig into the drive shaft.

I have taken the shaft of and hit the shaft with a 8kg hammer and still it wont come out.

Re: Stuck Hub

If you can find a garage with the correct press, they would probably press it out for a small fee.

To get it hot enough, it would probably destroy the bearing as you say...but bearings are cheap enough.
You really need a press to fit the bearing though.

You could get a full hub from a breakers yard if necessary.
