    Here's how mine go:

    - take manual hub off
    - remove two clips (one around spindle, one inside hub)
    - slid the guts out
    - take out locking nut w/ special socket
    - take out thrust/locking washer
    - remove tightening nut w/ same socket
    - take outter bearing out
    - take off calipers and remove disc/hub assembly
    - remove inner seal and pull that bearing out

    Hope this helps. I do mine enough so I should know. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    If you've got internal hubs, thread two or more of the long bolts (that hold the shiny cover on) into the "guts" and use them as a handle to pull.
