so i had another go today and couldnt get it off, put it all back together and took it to the mech., turns out that the shaft has forged itself onto the bearing and wont separate, even under a press, they said im gonna need a new axle at a cost of 700 hundred bucks from the dealer plus around 500 bucks for labor plus the 315 i already spent on the new hub!! I shoulda torched it and bought something else!!~ so far this year have replaced: radiator, power steering pump, wheel seal, complete exhaust, 4 new tires, rear a/c (which was patched up) high pressure steering line!! this thing gonna break me!!!!!!!!!!
