My wagon is a early 05, made in jun 04...
I did wipe the ring ont he axle CV before I installed the new hub, but mine don't come that close to the sensors.
I put a thread up back in April I think it was with a few photo's. I'll try and find the pictures, but the house is a mess with having oak floors installed this week so I don't have a home PC right now.
I also laid the parking brake/backing plate on 4x4's with 2x4's and drove the hub out of it.
Also if you put some anti-seize compound on the two 8mm bolts before you thread them into the brake rotor.
I also recommend anti-seize on all the bolts and lug nuts.
