    It's been afew years but ill ty to jog the old grey matter. You remove the cover, and inside will be the hub. Holding the hub in place is a c clip that is attached to the end of the axle. Remove that c clip and the hub will come out. When you install the new hub do NOT replace that c clip, use the big round snap ring instead. Hope this helps. I'm sure someone else will fill in all my blanks!

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    Take the 5 bolts out, pull off the cap, Remove the retaining clip on the axle shaft as said in above post.
    There is also a large retaining ring that goes around the inner diamiater of the hub. You will see a little metal cover on the outside edge of the auto hub assembly. Pull this cover off. behind it you will see two pins. Squeeze them togeather with a pair of needle nose(this compresses the retaining ring) and pull the auto assenbly should pull right out.. If it doesn't want to come out thread a couple of the bolts back in and use them to pull on. Thats is about it.
    Put the new hubs in according to the instructions
