anonymous: Yea I have tried everything but a torch. I cannot get the hub to slide off
the splines that worked great getting it out of the knuckle..
glock21guy: The real trick.. how did you get the damn bolts out? lol. Mine are rusted
round and I'm not able to get the damn hub hot enough around the bolt with
my oxy/acet cutting tip. Think I'd have better luck with an actual rosebud
Calvin Stevens: You, and JamieJones TheCarMan (who used the same idea), just saved my
repair. I had the whole steering knuckle off and was going to remount it
and try this. Then I thought "the trick is reattaching the *bolts*." So I
reattach them, hold the whole assembly in the air, and pound on the bolt
heads with a hammer. Hub assembly popped off and almost hit my foot! :D
nevysnova: great tip thanks
EmperorOfCan: Penetrating oil plus patience; that is what works for me.
Budz Wingren: Any advice for a stuck rear hub?
Kim Redcherries: how would u take off a rusted hub on the axle shaft been hammeringat it
Myles Gainer: she said pull it with a puller
eduardo sampoia: Wouldn't penetrating fluid help in this situation?
Pk Lehota: 250000 comedians out of a job, and here you are, trying to be funny. Please
leave the comedy to the professionals.
Hector Perez: hi, i working with my mazda protege5,don't look the same,but thanks for you
BigDogsHunt100: I tried this but my rear wheels won't turn. :p
Jon Plump: Good video. Will this work on a Chevy equinox 2005 with electric power
jjenson2006: You could probably use this same method with a 2 x 4 to get a rusted rotor
jason fink: well pilgrim this only works on the wagon your fixing not on a lot of
other wagons mr wayne like the one im fixing like a 98 grand prix so john
if you could upload more videos and prove me wrong well I might not make
you eat the peanuts out of my crap
Daniel Vachon: nice trick power steering act like a press machine,tank yu body..
Jeffrey Whitehead: I replaced my Drivers side wheel hub yesterday. Banged on it for hours,
didn't have your device. Got advice from friend about using a wood block.
Put rotor back on and cut a section of 2X4 (length from rotor to frame)
started the car and turned wheel inward and the hub released within
Bretta Oliver: oh yeah, I probably should have told you.... It is a 2008 Chevy Silverado
Dana Swaney: Excellent Tip
muscle not: Good tip! The average Joe can't understand how some car parts (especially
where road salt is used) can become so rusted it's nearly (in some cases,
totally) impossible to separate. Heat is usually an option but not where
sealed bearings are present. The heat burns out the grease and shortens the
bearing life (dramatically). Not to mention damages any rubber present. I
just wish I saw this video four hours sooner (take a guess how long I've
been banging my knuckles against the edge of a steering knuckle). TY
CosRacecar: Thanks, this really saved me. I soaked the hub in Really Good Sh*t (better
then PB Blaster, wish I could find a supplier for it) and then tried
beating on the bolts with a socket on them for over an hour and got
nowhere. I was about to take the torch to it when I found your video.
Jennifer Peterson: After 4 hours of fighting.....this actually worked!! Thank you!!!
Bretta Oliver: My husband is trying to remove the 3 bolts holding the wheel bearing, but
they are rusted VERY BADLY. Any tips for getting these out? Also, he
wants to know, are the bolts threaded all the way through? If not, could
he cut the heads off and pull apart?
Mitch Newcomer: Great technique. Yes Priceless! otherwise known as American
engineuity! thanx. Mitch
John Adams: This worked great on my 2001 Blazer, thought I would never get the hub off.
Robert Winney: Nice, I'm right in the middle of this disassembly on my 2005 3500 Dodge.
kikyle: You rock man!! That was so easy u saved me so much BS. Im glad I found your
cstomaton01: It's very clever aswell as useful thank you.
noondayup: I tried to remove the hub on my dodge 4x4 for the past 5 hours, two trips
to town to rent tools, I broke a slide hammer. Then I looked on good ol
utube... This worked so easy... Thanks for the tip...
toby hummel: thanks m8 my knuckes are tore up from the caveman approach having a hard
time typing gonna give this one whirle and hope I get to drive the spyder
to work thanks again
Jay Orenstein: What if its so rusted it bends the bolts
Ben quinn: Won't work in the junk yard.
MrZanadoo: Hi, I have enjoyed a few of your video's, do you have one on replacing the
rear wheel bearing assembly on a 2004 subaru Impreza TS, i watched the one
on the outback, thanks in advance and keep the video camera rolling
loveskateboard4: holy crap you are a genius my dad and I were beating, prying, and cussing
for hours trying to get it out then tried this and it took a 1/2 hour thank
you so much
two extensions were lost in the process but was well worth
Leslie Woods: Many years ago I had a car that belong to some one else and the right front
bearing was locked on so tight that cut it off, with out heating the sub
axel it moved and fitted new bearings and the was able to sell the car and
get a new one
Jay Orenstein: I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 4x4 and my passenger front wheel hub is stuck
on, I tried heating it with acetaline torches and a 5 lb sledge and it
didn't budge it is basically welded together because the bearing is so bad,
I don't thing your trick will work, any other ideas or do I need to replace
what it connects to, and what is the part it connects to? Is it the.
Control arm? Please if you can email me +Jay Orenstein thank you very much
jarin wilson: Brian, I've had wheel hub bearing assemblies so seized into the steering
knuckle, a 40 ton press would not press it out... it began to distort the
entire steering knuckle. I was left with no other option but to cut them
out. I've never used this option that you clearly demonstrated(not because
it won't work, but when I've invested a large sum of cash on tools, I just
won't risk destroying an extension, unless its an 'el cheapo')
Darian Benford: Thanks. It works.
Chris Henson: crap that one isnt even rusty you should of seen the ones i just did we had
a 8 pound sledge and a cutting torch still took 7 hours
Danny Smith: How would I do this on a 99 blaze? Just yesterday, I attemted replacing my
ball joints.. I spent 4 hrs trying to get the hub and splash off....
Nothing worked!!! Please help a.s.a.p
Tyler Phillips: Dude that was the coolest thing ever I literally spent hours pounding on
the hub with penetrating oil soaking and I did this trick and I literally
got it off in five minutes thanks so much it was awesome!!!!
mredstriumph: Damn that's smart. Great video.
Wish I woulda known.
Eddie the Grouch: Bad acting aside, this tip IS priceless and I wish I had known it before
doing my bearing a few years ago. To others: that rust/corrosion ring will
resist big hammers, big torches, pullers, and strong language. DO NOT USE
a regular jaw puller as all it will do is drive the axle into differential.
Dshlogg Green: Worked like a champ for me. I just had to go back and forth between sides a
few times. Thanks bro.
Ali Aliali: soak for a hour..with coca-cola it do the job
Jose Rozo: thanks
TheIrongutz: Just use a puller, safer!
Ian Sutherland: You saved my ass bro what a genius idea worked like a charm!!!
Bad Dog: I've tried about everything but this yet. Thanks for talking slow that's
about my speed of course the audience is for motorheads lol.
