Welcome. To change the hubs, do the following.

  • Lift and SAFELY support the front of the vehicle.
  • Remove tire
  • Remove caliper bracket to steering knuckle bolts- larger and closer to the axle.
  • Use a wire or strap to support the caliper out of the way.
  • Remove the rotor
  • Remove the dust cap-( useless on these, but they put them there anyway)
  • Remove the axle nut- 36mm
  • Use a hammer and block of wood to make sure the axle is loose.
  • Remove the ABS wiring from the body
  • Remove the 3 15mm bolts from the back side of the knuckle.
  • Use the block of wood and hammer on the back of the hub flange to loosen the hub.
  • Remove hub
  • Clean the surface of rust,
  • Install new hub.
