Ole Toddster: I have a 1999 Chrysler Town And Country w/AWD that needs two rear hub
assembly replacement. Yes the hub assembly and knuckle are always rusted
together and very
hard to remove the old hub off the front or rear knuckle. Your idea works
great for the front but not the rear hub assembly. Sorry to say the best
way to remove a rusty hub assembly is powerful air tools one is a air
hammer and the other is a good air gun to remove the rusty bolts but not
all the way out keep the bolts in it's threads just like you explained in
the video take your air hammer in back the bolts and one at a time air
hammer the hub assembly out and clean the rusty area for the new hub
Best to luck to anyone do this work lol
Jae Quan: For all of you that had this blow over your heads...
He's apparently either mocking the Expert Village videos or thats just his
silly way of being weird publicly.
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
scottyfivetwo: Just wanted to say thanks, I tried your method and had the hub off in
minutes. Had spent couple hours the day b4 trying to caveman it off.
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
scott powell: DUDE THANKS!!!! That work perfect I trying for 12 hours before I saw your
video. Wish I saw it three day ago....
Ray Hindle: Why are you talking like this?......Did I miss something?......Or is this
an American joke?
Ray From the U.K.
Joel Goyena: I'm hoping this video will help me replace wheel bearing & hub assembly on
my wife 2005 Murano soon
Budz Wingren: Any advice for a stuck rear hub?
xr29fb32: Anyone know how to get the hub assembly bolts off? I've tried bolt
extractor sockets but the ratchet breaks (literally) before the bolt breaks
loose. I've been told it is not a good idea for a non-professional to try
and drill them out because I might ruin the threads on the steering
knuckle. Is a torch the only way? Btw, my bolts go thru the hub from the
outside. I have to go thru the access holes in between the studs. Thanks
for any advice.
Daniel Vachon: nice trick power steering act like a press machine,tank yu body..
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..
EmperorOfCan: Penetrating oil plus patience; that is what works for me.

leave the comedy to the professionals.
Kim Redcherries: how would u take off a rusted hub on the axle shaft been hammeringat it
Hector Perez: hi, i working with my mazda protege5,don't look the same,but thanks for you
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
nevysnova: great tip thanks
Myles Gainer: she said pull it with a puller
jjenson2006: You could probably use this same method with a 2 x 4 to get a rusted rotor
Jon Plump: Good video. Will this work on a Chevy equinox 2005 with electric power
BigDogsHunt100: I tried this but my rear wheels won't turn. :p
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
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
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?
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.
Bretta Oliver: oh yeah, I probably should have told you.... It is a 2008 Chevy Silverado
eduardo sampoia: Wouldn't penetrating fluid help in this situation?
Jennifer Peterson: After 4 hours of fighting.....this actually worked!! Thank you!!!
Mitch Newcomer: Great technique. Yes Priceless! otherwise known as American
engineuity! thanx. Mitch
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...
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.
John Adams: This worked great on my 2001 Blazer, thought I would never get the hub off.
Ian Sutherland: You saved my ass bro what a genius idea worked like a charm!!!
Willie Manley: Thanks for the awesome tip...I still can't believe how well that
worked...and it was fast! I've been beating, heating, slide hammering and
nothing worked...great tip!
cstomaton01: It's very clever aswell as useful thank you.
akorczvr6: freaking brilliant
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
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
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
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
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!!!!
Dana Swaney: Excellent Tip
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')
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
Darian Benford: Thanks. It works.
Dshlogg Green: Worked like a champ for me. I just had to go back and forth between sides a
few times. Thanks bro.
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
Jose Rozo: thanks
