Did this video help you?

Ole Toddster: I have a 1999 Chrysler Town And Country w/AWD that needs two rear hub assembly replacement. Yes the hub assembly and knuckle are always rusted together and very hard to remove the old hub off the front or rear knuckle. Your idea works great for the front but not the rear hub assembly. Sorry to say the best way to remove a rusty hub assembly is powerful air tools one is a air hammer and the other is a good air gun to remove the rusty bolts but not all the way out keep the bolts in it's threads just like you explained in the video take your air hammer in back the bolts and one at a time air hammer the hub assembly out and clean the rusty area for the new hub assembly. Best to luck to anyone do this work lol 

Jacob Chatterton: Thank you Brian for the excellent tip. Would this work on a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander? Not sure if it has rack and pinion steering or not.

Debbie Koepfle: hello i have a baja mini bike and dont know how to take off the back hub can you please help me?

Nick B: You sound like Tex Grebner lol

Josh Kerby: Please tell me that is not his real voice.

mark doe: great video!! but when the bearing assembly came out the abs sensor the back side of the bearing housing stayed in the knuckle. I wasn't sure if you have run into this and if so if you any tricks to get it out. thank you!!

dan ng: Thank Brian! Cool guy, good tip

Daryl Cesal: Dude, thanks a ton! I was exhausted and lost and gave you tube a last shot. You saved my life and 300 bucks. Worked like a champ!!! thank you!!!!!

William Tyson: Dude I needed that. Thanks man. BTW the accent made me feel a little better too. Lol

Jose Bezares: Thank you very much! I had called it a night after a lot of caveman, when I found your video. I got up early and was able to get it done by myself this morning. now back to plowing.

Glenn Taft: Hi Brian, This does look really cool. I live in Minnesota and have a 2000 Chevy Venture that has bad front hubs with lots of rust. Can I use this method on my Venture, or does it have rack n pinion?

Yury Kirillov: " Drunk " video

Jae Quan: For all of you that had this blow over your heads... He's apparently either mocking the Expert Village videos or thats just his silly way of being weird publicly.

BigDogsHunt100: I tried this but my rear wheels won't turn. :p

Daniel Vachon: nice trick power steering act like a press machine,tank yu body..

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

scott powell: DUDE THANKS!!!! That work perfect I trying for 12 hours before I saw your video. Wish I saw it three day ago.... Thanks again!!! 

Calvin Stevens: You, and JamieJones TheCarMan (who used the same idea), just saved my repair. I had the whole steering knuckle off and was going to remount it and try this. Then I thought "the trick is reattaching the *bolts*." So I reattach them, hold the whole assembly in the air, and pound on the bolt heads with a hammer. Hub assembly popped off and almost hit my foot! :D Thanks!

anonymous: Yea I have tried everything but a torch. I cannot get the hub to slide off the splines that worked great getting it out of the knuckle..

nevysnova: great tip thanks

Budz Wingren: Any advice for a stuck rear hub?

Ray Hindle: Why are you talking like this?......Did I miss something?......Or is this an American joke? Ray From the U.K.

Scott Johnson: If I was tom cruise, you would be Renee Zelweger. You are a brilliant SOB and you complete me. 

Steven Godbey: After giving up on the cave man method with a slide hammer. I found your tip. Thanks, the accent helped.

eduardo sampoia: Wouldn't penetrating fluid help in this situation?

EmperorOfCan: Penetrating oil plus patience; that is what works for me.

Kim Redcherries: how would u take off a rusted hub on the axle shaft been hammeringat it for hoursnow 

Myles Gainer: she said pull it with a puller 

Joel Goyena: I'm hoping this video will help me replace wheel bearing & hub assembly on my wife 2005 Murano soon

Pk Lehota: 250000 comedians out of a job, and here you are, trying to be funny. Please leave the comedy to the professionals. 

scottyfivetwo: Just wanted to say thanks, I tried your method and had the hub off in minutes. Had spent couple hours the day b4 trying to caveman it off.

Billy Smith: SWEET!!!……..I have the same problem on a Dana 60 4 bolt…….wonder if I can use the same process?….be back in a sec to try it out

Jon Plump: Good video. Will this work on a Chevy equinox 2005 with electric power steering? Thanks!

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 

Hector Perez: hi, i working with my mazda protege5,don't look the same,but thanks for you idea

xr29fb32: Anyone know how to get the hub assembly bolts off? I've tried bolt extractor sockets but the ratchet breaks (literally) before the bolt breaks loose. I've been told it is not a good idea for a non-professional to try and drill them out because I might ruin the threads on the steering knuckle. Is a torch the only way? Btw, my bolts go thru the hub from the outside. I have to go thru the access holes in between the studs. Thanks for any advice. 

Mitch Newcomer: Great technique. Yes Priceless! otherwise known as American engineuity! thanx. Mitch

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.

Bretta Oliver: oh yeah, I probably should have told you.... It is a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500

glock21guy: The real trick.. how did you get the damn bolts out? lol. Mine are rusted round and I'm not able to get the damn hub hot enough around the bolt with my oxy/acet cutting tip. Think I'd have better luck with an actual rosebud heating 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.

Bretta Oliver: My husband is trying to remove the 3 bolts holding the wheel bearing, but they are rusted VERY BADLY. Any tips for getting these out? Also, he wants to know, are the bolts threaded all the way through? If not, could he cut the heads off and pull apart?

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

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

John Adams: This worked great on my 2001 Blazer, thought I would never get the hub off. Thanks!

Jennifer Peterson: After 4 hours of fighting.....this actually worked!! 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...

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.

axebattler1: "according to you anyone who starts fighting professional late will never become great" falling back on a straw man argument i see. btw, you're still cowardly ignoring YOUR challenge and the points i made in my last 2replies, one of which destroys your straw man. "While all you can do is bitch and hate from behind your keyboard." no, i'm educating you after you bitched, don't you remember how this exchange started? again talking about yourself in an attempt to insult me. you're not good at this
