Newbie here. Bought daughter a 2002 Aztek AWD. Previous owner gave me two front bearings. Replaced them both no big issues. The story is good, I'll post that some other time. Now AWD and Anti-lock lights are on. Traced to right rear (passenger). OK, same part, no biggie. Take tire off, take brakes off, take rotor off, take 3 mounting bolts off. The wheel bearing will not come loose. I have pounded the crap out of it, penetrating oil, etc. etc.
 Am I missing something? This was supposed to be an hour project. Help anyone?

Hi Nimrod

Did you try a search? I think I remember reading that a puller may be needed...

Easy... Just as you said.... No puller... detatch caliper and three bolts... Took my mechanic about half an hour start to finish.

Hi, newbie here as well. I just replaced all 4 hubs on an 02 tek I picked up for $700. A puller did no good, I used a chisel between the old hub and the backing plate. The old hub was siezed tight. This worked great on all 4 hubs. Hope this helps.
