    Working on it now, HELP ASAP

    I got the car on jacks in garage, and trying to get the hub off the steering knuckle. How do you do it? Four bolts are out but they are stuck together SOLID. I sprayed pb blaster on it. Then I put a couple bolts through partway and hammered the shit out of them. It will not budge at all. There is a sensor on the back that is plastic, so I cannot torch it at all.

    99' Ws6 is the car.

    Wheel studs??

    What are you removing the hub for?
    Good luck, you have listed what I would have tried. Might need a puller.

    This is only side one...gotta get other side next. As for pullers, how would you get one on? I got pullers. It would be a big puller. I like what the hanes manual says, four bolts and it slides right out...right.

    No crack at all to get a pry bar in there. Could always put the wheel and tire back on. And Drop the jacks really fast. j/k

    Got it!! Got a monkey wrench on it, use a pipe for long handle...I stood on the handle, my dad whaled on the hammer with a sledge. It budged like 1mm. Worked it each way until the holes lined up again. Then went back to pounding the bolts. I still got one to go though. =( It only sits on the thing like 1/4th an inch, how it was that tight I have no idea.

    another easy way to loosen it is loosen the 4 bolts then drive it around the block.
