CHEVY REPLACING WHEEL BEARING HUB

2005 Chevrolet Venture

Steering problem
2005 Chevy Venture 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

I am replacing wheel bearing hub assembly; I have loosened the hub from steering knuckle, but am not able to remove the hub assembly from the end of the axle. I have used hammer, but will not loosen to slide off.
Any suggestions?

Have to use front hub spindle remover service tool to push the drive shaft out of the bearing/hub assembly.

I have a 2004 Venture. You'll need a 34mm deep socket to remove the axle nut. Once removed, tap the axle back toward the engine a little. Undo the three bolts to the bearing hub and tap (hit, smash) it off with a hammer - couple hits on the left side, couple on the right.
