Hi all, can anyone tell me how to separate the rear hub from the carrier? I need to replace the bearings on both sides. The units are off the car by the way.
Cheers.


Do or do not, there is no try.

Thanks. I’ve tried pushing using a hub puller with a socket, a large hammer and socket but it’s not budging. Is the circlip holding in the bearings? And is it behind the hub?

Circlip goes on the bottom of the carrier as seen in that pic, just holds the bearing in.

Hi you need to use a hydraulic press, don’t use a hammer,press on the outer part of bearing when fitting the new ones

The hubs came out for me without much trouble using the puller in picture.
It needed a press to get the bearing out of carrier though.
