Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
is the bearing loose?
is the knuckle or the strut bent?
what about the knuckle and control arm? they are the weakest links
id buy a used knee assembly/ knuckle with hub and a control arm I would not waste my time on the bearing
do you have a press? did you check out car-part?
I would ring the knuckle to a auto shop or auto machine shop and have it pressed..they are easy to screw up
yea cant remove without pressing it or hub shark
or a slide hammer

rent a slide hammer and muscle the hub off...then you can get to your shield...used is the easiest if the bearing is good
