Well if you look at a factory manual it uses a lot of custom
tools. But to remove the hub in our shop we use primitive tools.
However when we remove the hub from the knuckle we probably damage the
bearing.
It goes something like this the bearing outer race is pressed
into the knuckle and the inner race is an interference fit with the hub
shaft.
So we remove the knuckle from the car, lower ball joint, two
bolts of strut (make mark to keep alignment) and steering ball joint
and brake caliper.
Then we use a pipe and hammer out hub from back of knuckle, (in
manual they use a bearing holder to get between hub and knuckle it is a
thin metal edge like tool) and they press out with pipe and press).
This process probably destroys or damages bearing the way we do it (we
hold knuckle in vise holding strut part of knuckle). Then with hub out
you can see bearing from both sides, remove grease seal and look for
clip holding bearing and remove clip. Then find pipe of right diameter
and pound or press out outer race of bearing. Then get new bearing and
press in and press in hub with inner race supported by right size pipe
or socket or old inner race with inner surface ground down. It takes
us a couple of hours and most time is spent looking for pipe or old
bearing races to properly fit inner or outer race of bearing. It is a
pain in the ass job, so my advice is don't remove the hub.
