Wheel Hub Assembly Removal

I am trying to remove the wheel hub assembly, to replace it on my 2000 F250. It is seized on there. How is the best way to remove it without ruining all the bolts and such. Thanks in advance.

Billy!

It is a 4x4, I got those Nuts off of those bolts. The thing should just slide out but is not playing nice.

I am just asking, but did you remember to take off the snap ring on the end of the axle? Otherwise try and pry it out with a crow bar. Thats how i got mine to pop loose.

Yeah with that snap ring still on you will pull the axle shaft with the bearing.

I used a posi lock puller to get mine off. If you don't pull it out straight it becomes a real pain in the @ss.

I removed the snap ring, got a little PB blaster, to loosen up the rust, and ended up getting a bigger hammer! Works every time. Now I am noticing an O-Ring that goes around the Hub Assembly my new one didn't come with that. I am guessing that is sold separately.

If its the black oring the assy shoulda had one. The axle seal though is different and yes that has to be bought separate.
