If you're trying to unbolt the bearing assembly, you're looking at the wrong style. This is the same as what Chrysler used in the '80s. Hondas, Toyotas, and Fords use it too. You need a special tool to press the hub out of the bearing once the half-shaft is removed. When the hub is out, there is a circlip to remove that retains the bearing in the spindle. With that removed, the tool is used again to press the bearing out of the spindle.
The tool is designed to be used with an impact gun, but I found the tool lasts longer and the job is easier if you mount it to the spindle like normal, but instead of stressing it with the impact, run the pressing bolt tight by hand, then smack the end of it with a hammer. Tighten it by hand again, then smack it again.
The tool is also used to pull the bearing into the spindle, then to pull the hub into the bearing. Once assembled, the CV joint holds everything together so be sure it is torqued to specs before any vehicle weight is put on it.
The tool pulls against the center of the bearing when drawing in the hub. There is a special cone for that. If you don't use that cone, you'll push the bearing race out the back side and destroy it.
