REMOVING FRONT HUB

Honda Civic

I just bought a 2000 Honda Civic EX 2dr, 5spd M with 95k miles and my front brakes began to squeal. When I attempted to remove the front wheel, 3 of the 4 lug studs broke off. I removed the brake caliper and wheel disc and was going to replace the studs but in order to punch them out the hub needs to be removed. I removed the large axle nut and pulled the shaft out the back but am unable to remove the hub. My question is: How do I remove the hub?

I recently repaired a 2000 accord with the same issue. I did not remove anything more than the dust cover on the back. I was able to pursuade the new ones to slip in to the hole at an angle. I was able to get them in with very, very minimal thread damage and the new lugs went on just fine and I was able to pull them in to place and seat just fine.
