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 

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.

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

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!!!!!

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.

nevysnova: great tip thanks

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.

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!

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!!! 

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?

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

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

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

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..

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

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

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

Budz Wingren: Any advice for a stuck rear hub?

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. 

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

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 

Myles Gainer: she said pull it with a puller 

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

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

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

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.

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

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?

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

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

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

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...

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.

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

Ian Sutherland: You saved my ass bro what a genius idea worked like a charm!!!

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!

cstomaton01: It's very clever aswell as useful thank you.

akorczvr6: freaking brilliant

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

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

Ben quinn: Won't work in the junk yard.

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

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

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!!!!

Dana Swaney: Excellent Tip

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')

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

Eggbert Souse: I just bought one of these 42" Pitts from Hobbyking but I can't figure out how the struts mount to the wing. Do I have to cut the monokote & screw the struts to the wing ribs? The instructions that come with this kit are less than peachey to put it mildly.
