Like Mike said, becareful with the slide hammer, I also began to pull the bearing out of the hub. I stopped and let the PB Blaster do its work, after about 15 minutes I was able to tap the backing plate with the hub out of the spindle.

I did my right rear, the last of the 4, saturday. My wagon has all new hubs now.

Just read you link, I have not removed any of the ABS sensors when doing this job.

I would also suggest you get a 3ft pipe for the breaker bar.

Also a 1 1/4" socket is the same as a 32mm.

Why did you say to pull the battery cable ? That sounds like something out of the shop manual. They seem to pull the negitive cable for everything.
