Hyundai Santa Fe: Hi,Hyundai Santa Fe 2007 rear wheel hub

Hyundai Santa Fe 2007 rear wheel hub replacement.
Can the axle be pushed in when loosening the axle nut on the wheel hub so i get access to the 4 nut's for the bearing hub ?
Hi, I don't think you can get the axle pushed back far enough to get a wrench on the 4 hub bolts. You are going to need to remove the rear wheel carrier in order to replace the hub. I've attached the workshop instructions below. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX a more complicated job than I was hoping then :)


Yes it's a bit involved. You can probably swing the wheel carrier up out of the axle without actually removing it but there is still a good bit of disassembly involved and you still have the coil spring to deal with.
