Need some advice on how to remove the rear wheel/ ju bearing assembly!! Have it stripped down but having trouble removing hub itself any advice??? All I've been able to dig up is remove the bolts and then it says remove Hub lol, doesn't seem to be that simple on my 97 North Star deville 4.6 thanks in advance

There are special procedures needed to remove/replace the hub assemblies.

Yeah like I stripped braking down and turned the flange and took the four 10 mm bolts out and then i figured it would just come out u know like it doesn't have the splines like the front so idk I'll give it another whirl tomorrow maybe see what happens

At the four ears/corners where the bolts go through, I think the hub casting angles slightly away from the knuckle juuust a tiny bit and you might be able to get the tip of a chisel in to spread them further apart. Some PB Blaster beforehand might also help.

If you have compressed air available, a pneumatic chisel can be a Godsend. Saved my ass several times.
