OK, but if you haven't taken it in yet, once you remove the calipers you are already halfway done. Let us know if you need more help.

The hub on these is a sealed unit. It'* not like the old RWD cars. I think you have to pop off some of the suspension parts.
You might get a manual if you want to do it yourself.

i should off said the hole hub comes off but i know its sealed all frnt wheel drive cars are

I picked up the car last night. Mechanic indicated that the hub assembly on the driver'* side was so rusted on that he broke his puller trying to take it off! He also said that it took him 45 minutes to beat it off with a sledge hammer. All in all, it was worth the $60 of labor!!

They had to use a jackhammer on my 89. On my 93 I used a crowbar.
