hi guys can u help me ?
i took my wheels off today then took 4 bolts out
the hub thing that covers the front of the brake disc
the dics is now loose but won't come off because it looks like i need to take the split pin and axle nut off
if i do that is there any wheel bearings in there i might damage and do i need any special tools to get
that metal hub thing off so i can swap brake discs over to new ones

thanks

Yes there is a special tool to press off the hub. Usually the parts store has loaner tools that you can use if you leave them a deposit. It bolts to the wheel studs and pushes on the axle after you take off the big nut. Hope this helps

The puller looks similar but instead of 3 jaws it has three holes that bolt up to the wheel studs. Yes there is a bearing there but the hub will press out of it. And yes you push on the axle.
