I need to know how to remove the rear wheel hub on a 2004 Porsche Cayenne S. I have removed the center hub nut and tried using a gear puller to pull it free but it has not moved at all. I know Porshce uses a special hydraulic tool, is that the only way to remove this hub?

Hi,how are you?This is a pressed in hub and the gear puller will never be strong enough th get this out for you.The hub has to be pressed out with a heavy duty hydraulic press.
Is that the type of tool that I can rent somewhere or am I stuck taking it to Porsche?
You are stuck taking it somewhere,however any repair shop can make this repair and will have cheaper rates than Porsche.
