: Hub Removal Question

11-16-08, 01:20 PM
How do you get the cover off to get access to the nut on the half shaft? See pic... I've got major issues trying to remove a ball joint, and my only option now is to pull the steering knuckle, but I can't even get to the nut on the half shaft. Some help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Although it looks menacing and takes some work, you can remove that thing with a chisel and hammer. Its a pain, but at least it keeps the threads on the half shaft clean.
