FRONT WHEEL BEARINGS

1994 Volkswagen Rabbit • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 136,000 miles

1994 Volkswagen Rabbit mileage: 136,000. I was trying to repair the front wheel bearings on the driver’s side and it got stuck. After I removed the hub nut and brake calipers, I tried to remove the rest of the hub assembly to access the bearings. I tried using a puller to remove the assembly and all that did was push the axle spindle (not sure of the name) off the wheel instead of pulling off the hub assembly.

The tool you need to remove the hub is called a “slide hammer".
