    <font color=blue>(1)Take the locking hub body off. It's held on by allen screws
    (2)Remove the large snap ring thats seated in the hub body (its a pain, you can use 2 small flathead screwdrivers but picks work the best)
    (3) remove the small c-clip that holds the axleshaft in the locking hub and remove the hub body (different husb may need more dissasembly)
    (4) Remove the outer bearing nut. You need a special socket for this. Remove the locking ring behind the outer nut, then remove the inner nut. Slide the wheelhub and rotor off in one peice being carefull not to drop the bearings.
    (5) Use a brass drift or hammer to hit the wheelstuds out of the hub and rotor. After the studs are removed, the wheel hub lifts off the rotor (you may need a little pursuasion from a hammer).
