Remove hub assembly. Once you have hub off the vehicle tap out lug bolts with hammer and replace with new. Reinstall hub assembly in reverse order of removal

Removal (Except Odyssey & S2000)
Loosen lug nuts with vehicle weight on tires. Pry lock tab away from spindle nut, and loosen nut. Raise and support vehicle. Remove lug nuts and spindle nut. Remove wheel assembly. Remove brake hose mounting bolts, caliper assembly, and support aside. DO NOT put weight on flexible brake line.
Remove brake disc retaining screws. Install two 8 x 1.25-mm bolts in brake disc, and tighten bolts to force brake disc from hub. Alternate tightening of bolts to prevent brake disc from binding on hub. Disconnect ABS wheel sensor (if equipped) from steering knuckle and set aside. DO NOT disconnect sensor connector. Remove cotter pin and nut from tie rod end.
On all models except Prelude with Active Torque Transfer System (ATTS), use Ball Joint Remover (07MAC-SL00200). Separate tie rod ball joint and lift tie rod end out of knuckle. See Fig. 2, Fig. 3 and Fig. 5. On Prelude with Active Torque Transfer System (ATTS), remove cotter pin and radius rod ball joint nut. Using ball joint separator, separate radius rod ball joint from radius rod. On all models, remove cotter pin from lower control arm ball joint, and nut. Using ball joint remover, separate lower ball joint from control arm.
Remove cotter pin and upper ball joint stud nut. Using ball joint remover, separate ball joint from steering knuckle. Remove steering hub/knuckle assembly from axle shaft.
