Me and my dad are trying to replace the front two wheel bearings in the car. One went on without too much trouble but once we got the one that was real bad we ran into a huge problem. The old bearing will not come off despite our best efferts. We have pounded with hammers. Used C clamps witht so much force the hub itself is starting to bend inward. We are ready to give up. We are considering using cutting torches to cut it out carefully. Is there any other secrets that I can try. Thanks for the help

Use a slide hammer with hub puller adapter

We tried using a gear puller and like I said we screwed it out with so much force the hub itself started to give way. I am pretty desperate right now
