Help needed--Wheel hub replacement--in progress

Hey guys,
Im replacing the wheel hubs right now and I encountered a small issue that I need some advice on.
When I pulled the right wheel hub off I noticed some play in the half shaft and of course the dust seal is blown.
I have included a video to show what is going on.

This is my first time doing one so I have no reference as to what a good half shaft should look like while torn down.

If it does need to be repaired how does the half come out of the rig? I have searched online but I can't find any info on how to do this or how one looks normally.
Thx Powerstroke!!

I have not had mine that far apart yet... but I hate to say it...looks like the needle bearings are shot.

I could be wrong tho.

I just did mine about 2 weeks ago when I replaced my ball joints and they are not supposed to have that much movement, no doubt its bad. I replaced both sides, both dust shields, and both yellow o-rings and it cost me $140 for the parts with a discount from my dealer.

Do I just yanked these right out of the spindle, because mine doesn't want to pull out of the spindle.
Or I have to separate them from the u-joint first?

Your half shaft doesn't appear to be bad, just check the u-joint for play when you get it out.

Just tap the bearing out of the spindle from the back side the shaft will come out with it, then just knock the bearing off the shaft. No need to mess with the u-joint if it doesn't need to be replaced. The new ones will need to be pressed back on, then you will need the ford tool to set the correct depth in the spindle.
