What do you think about this video?

Budz Wingren: Any advice for a stuck rear hub?

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 idea

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 steering? Thanks!

jjenson2006: You could probably use this same method with a 2 x 4 to get a rusted rotor off.

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 seconds.

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!!!

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. Thanks!

Robert Winney: Nice, I'm right in the middle of this disassembly on my 2005 3500 Dodge. Thanks

kikyle: You rock man!! That was so easy u saved me so much BS. Im glad I found your video. 

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.

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!

Nigel McKenzie: Awesome!

akorczvr6: freaking brilliant

Chris Gloege: How the hell did you get the planes to land on the ceiling like that? Incredible!

BOB FOLTY: I think it would blow the seals in the power steering unit. I have taken the off used a porter power against the spring and it was all we could do to get it. when it poped it jumped out about a foot. 

James Crowton: Couldn't you have heated it up and just pounded it off?

Quadrigius: Best tip ever. Without your advice I would have scrapped my 1995Volvo 850 even though I had bought a replacement wheel bearing. I have never worked on any car before but thought I would have a go at it because I had no money for garage repairs (it would have cost more than the car is worth). When I couldn't get the assembly out I thought, well that's the end of that then, scrap yard for you; then I came across your video and decided to give it one more try and WOW! It popped right out the very first time. Brilliant. HUGE thanks. Happy Christmas and have a grrrreat 2014.
