Customer: replied 4 years ago.

when I take off the tie rod do i take the nut completely off. And when I get it all disconnected does it come off as a unit. Thank you for your help I was in a panic you are being very help full

yes take the tie rod nut completelty off.

Then use a large hammer to hit the area of the HUB where the tie rod stuf goes through and it will drop out (this is a way of doing it without using the tool shown in the graphic)

the hub will come off as an assembly shown in the first link I attached.

Just go through each step and you will get there

let me know how you make out and if you need more help
