So, I'm trying to swap rear hub assemblies on my wife's car. How do you get the darn thing off? Do I just need to beat it with a hammer to break it free? I don't want to damage anything in case I can't get it and I have to put it back together. Any help? I've gotta get this done so she can use it tomorrow...

heat on the knuckle, then spray with penetrant, then heat it, then spray.

then beat the hub out with a BFH.

that's how it goes when rust. You will destroy the hub, but I assume you're replacing it because it's bad already.

Hub removal tools work well but I'm assuming you're not using one so basically heat and penetrating oil. Just keep working at hitting it out I'd use a rubber or plastic mallet of even a brass hammer works to reduce the chance of damage

Thanks for the replies! J5T suggested threading a bolt back in from the back a bit, and prying from that point. Worked great!

Ah yes I remember that trick now... It's been 6 months since I did mine. Not terrible.
