Rear wheel hub 95 Eldorado
I am replacing the DR Rear knuckle on a 95 Eldorado.
My question is : Does the wheel hub assemble simply get bolted on by those 4 bolts I see ?
I have removed those and soaked the "Square" in penetrating spray...Letting it soak now..Wont it just pop off with some "Motivation" ?
Car came from Ohio... Rusted...And I am sure no anti-seize was applied to the dust cover or hub surfaces before they mated for life.

Re: Rear wheel hub 95 Eldorado
I cant believe 25 people cant figure out or have not done a wheel bearing.
For the next guy :
I tipped the knuckle so the ABS sensor was facing up. I sprayed a penetrating oil all around the recess. I then used a IIRC 2.5 " piece of plumbing pipe...LAyed a board across that and 3 blasts with a 3 lb sledge and plop. Out it came.
This was of course after removing all four bolts and disconnecting the ABS sensor.
