Did this video help you?

jake wicks: thanks so much for the tip was even able to do it without an assistant because i didnt have the option lol but you are a life saver!

Matt Anderson: Just last night I changed a severely rusted in place wheel hub assembly in an 02 Grand Caravan. Little hammer, no go, sledge, no go, deformed the outer hub pretty severely, and loosened the bearing inner race up until it was floppy, but the outer was stuck fast. Torch, no go. I worked on it with an air chisel untill my chisel tip was flattened out, probably went through 200 gallons of air, no movement whatsoever. I ended up using the air chisel to knock out the inner race completely and all the seals, ball bearings, and all that and I reduced it to nothing but the outer race, then I spent about three hours on the die grinder cutting out a notch in the race, just until it was through and a narrow separation in the steel could be seen in the steel, all the way across the race and down the flange. Even with a notch it took another ten minutes with the air chisel to collapse the race and drive it out from the back. After I brushed out all of the aluminum oxide from the cavity, there wasn't even a perceptible grinder mark on the inner face of the steering knuckle. With care, you can cut though the steel and not damage the aluminum. It's a slow process though. In what I've seen in my research for this, in some cases, even a 20 ton hydraulic press won't touch this kind of seized up bearing race. Don't make my mistake and buy a used car from a northern climate.

akozak84: I was pounding on my hub assembly for about an hour. I watched your video and popped it right off in no time. Excellent tip! Thank you!

Juan Alaniz Jr: do they make a specific hub assembly for either side or do u ask for driver or passage wheel bearing hub??...ps the vehicle is a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4.7

Hersch Peeps: awesome idea that works thank you!!

Robert S: you needed a vacation at this time?

Brad Ballard: WHY DID I NOT THINK OF THIS!!!!!! I'm gonna do this when the sun's up and ita not raining tmrw. thank you sir for your wisdom

Anthony Acuna: that's a great trick but will it work on a pressed hub? I don't want to go out to my car to try and figure it out just yet.

FrantiĊĦek Soumar: You've earned my subscription! Funny accent! :-)

Kimberly Gray: Very good job. my question is I have a 2002 Toyota corolla I have already changed the rear right side not to big of a problem. I have been working on the left rear. for 3 days. I am having trouble removing the rusted dust cover behind tire and on top of the brakes and the wheel bearing, I soaked it with the spray you were using I have taken the little rubber 8 looking cover in the back of the wheel sprayed the heck out of it. I have used 2 bolts and put them in the 2 holes in the dust cover and tried pulling it off .3 days later nothing. I am a woman. so I am asking for advice. I was going to try heating the dust cover up but I was worried the buster would catch fire and my gas tank is right there. When I turn the wheel it sounds off balance and it rubs I figuere its rust chips its hitting. HELP PLEASE. Thank you

Dylan Beavon: Didn't work for me. It's so bad that it bent my 1 inch extension bar.

Kentucky Surveyor: Spent 3 hours heating, chiseling, and hammering......watched this and finished it 10 minutes later.
You sir are a true scholar.

Brady Bietau: yup, your a savior. thanks

MrArcee52: How far do you screw the bolts back in? Thanks.

Jason Friend: Love the accent Helped me lighten up after working on trying to get the dang hub assembly off. :-)

ronald dipietro: when you put the two lower bolts back in...how far do you put them in

Robert Hill: 05 chevy equinox. I did this and a bunch of pounding. both of my axles broke and now the car is pulling right and left tire squeals when turning left. ever hear of this or is it just my luck?

iztheterrible: ha ha . whats with the comical voice ?

James Op: can i reuse the wheel bearing if all i need to do is create enough space to add wheel stud? in other words will this process damage my wheel bearing?
