    find long 10x1.25mm bolts.
    remove wheel
    remove axle nut
    loosen the 4 bolts that go through the hub
    remove brake caliper
    pop the knuckle off the tie rod, lower and upper ball joints
    take the knuckle off the car
    loosen 4 bolts holding the bearing to the knuckle
    tap the bearing+rotor+hub out by tapping the 4 bolts w/ a hammer


    now put the long 10x1.25mm bolts in through the back of the bearing and turn the rotor til the bolts press on the rotor. It will press the rotor+hub off the bearing. Turn each one little by little, going criss cross until you push the hub off the bearing.

    However, be sure you have broken the 4 bolts that go thru the rotor to the hub loosen before you removed everything off the car. They are really hard to remove after taking everything off.

    to get the hub on a new bearing... take it to a shop to have them press it.

    This is where it's nice to have a 60 ton electric powered hydraulic press at your disposal.

    Nice how to. :thumbsup:
