Raise and support vehicle. Remove the wheel and tire assembly. Detach the speed sensor wiring harness from the retainers.
2. Remove the bolts and position the brake caliper and support bracket aside. Do not allow the disc brake caliper to hang suspended from the brake hose. Provide a suitable support. Remove the brake disc.
CAUTION: Do not overextend the CV joint and boots when removing the wheel hub.
3. Using the Front Wheel Hub Remover (D93P-1175-B), press the outboard CV joint until it is loose in the hub. See Fig. 3 . Remove the three hub bolts and discard them. See Fig. 5 . Remove the wheel hub and sensor as an assembly.
4. Apply a thin coat of Silicone Sealant (F7AZ-19554-EA) to the wheel hub mounting surfaces before installation. To install, reverse the removal procedure. Install NEW fasteners where necessary. Tighten all nuts and bolts to specification.
