Front Hub Removal - any tricks?

Recommended Posts

Hello again. 

thanks for all replies for my previous questions - sorry if this answered somewhere but I can’t find it - even in the service manual?

i want to replace  the front brake shields on the S4S and it see I need to remove the hub..... I have the uprights / brake assembly on the bench - have removed the discs ( very easy one hex headed bolt ) and have removed the main (30mm socket head) nut 

I can’t find any info on removing the hub from upright stub axle 

I suspect it drifts out with some careful hammer blows ..... any tips ?

When I did mine I used a rubber mallet to whack em off.
