Cindy Tews: thanks so much for your tip it made my repair sooo much easier.

Dan DIY: I am stuck right there with the same job, brilliant solution!
I have even used a cutting torch to heat it, no movement. Thanks!

Greg Keefer: what's plan B? working on a dodge caravan ive used hammers ive used heat ive used puller and slixe hammer and your method here, ive ground four slots down to the knuckle in attempt to weaken the hub and ive beaten it so savagely that ive begun to question my mental stability. this has been my greatest automotive challenge in several years if noy my life...

Robert Mills: Thank You!!! Your Video helped me do this job myself and save a lot of Money! Great Video!

Brian Gaitan: any specific brand for the bearing??

laura bulvas: just talk normal, so annoying

Dave X: Brian, you're the man! 2007 Equinox, beat the hell out of the old wheel hub assembly, watched your video and had it out 5 mins! Thanks man, love the accent!

Leon C: I used this trick today and it worked. There was not enough force with engine off, so I had to turn the engne on to activate the power steering pump, and only used the bottom bolt , the hub has 4 bolts but the 3 are far from any hard or sturdy metal parts. I got scared doing it as I might break something other than what I wanted. :) THANK YOU!

Joseph L Brocious Jr: That's awesome. how do I get the assembly with the rotor behind the hub? I have the 96 2500 4x4 cummings diesel . I been prying and hammering all day three trips to harbor freight and the auto parts store. I believe now, I am going to change the baring assembly since I been hammering on it .

Ricardo Coronado: Priceless information and thanks for sharing your experience. Funny slow-mo tongue.

jake wicks: thanks so much for the tip was even able to do it without an assistant because i didnt have the option lol but you are a life saver!

Matt Anderson: Just last night I changed a severely rusted in place wheel hub assembly in an 02 Grand Caravan. Little hammer, no go, sledge, no go, deformed the outer hub pretty severely, and loosened the bearing inner race up until it was floppy, but the outer was stuck fast. Torch, no go. I worked on it with an air chisel untill my chisel tip was flattened out, probably went through 200 gallons of air, no movement whatsoever. I ended up using the air chisel to knock out the inner race completely and all the seals, ball bearings, and all that and I reduced it to nothing but the outer race, then I spent about three hours on the die grinder cutting out a notch in the race, just until it was through and a narrow separation in the steel could be seen in the steel, all the way across the race and down the flange. Even with a notch it took another ten minutes with the air chisel to collapse the race and drive it out from the back. After I brushed out all of the aluminum oxide from the cavity, there wasn't even a perceptible grinder mark on the inner face of the steering knuckle. With care, you can cut though the steel and not damage the aluminum. It's a slow process though. In what I've seen in my research for this, in some cases, even a 20 ton hydraulic press won't touch this kind of seized up bearing race. Don't make my mistake and buy a used car from a northern climate.

akozak84: I was pounding on my hub assembly for about an hour. I watched your video and popped it right off in no time. Excellent tip! Thank you!

Juan Alaniz Jr: do they make a specific hub assembly for either side or do u ask for driver or passage wheel bearing hub??...ps the vehicle is a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4.7

Hersch Peeps: awesome idea that works thank you!!
