    .......can someone please tell me how to get the drive flange out of my 10 bolt. I have taken out the snap rings but there is no way that I can get a hold of the flange. The only thing I could think of was a magnet but that didn't work. Please help.

    I forgot to mention that someone put the spring in on the wrong side. When I popped off the cap the spring came out with it.

    Do you have any mechanics picks? Those might do the trick of getting in there and working it out.

    If it comes down to it, just tack a welding rod (or even a bolt) to the side and drag it out. You can clean off the tack afterwards... just keep it away from the edges and use the solid part of the body.

    That's prolly what I'd do.. :dunno:

    Well I ended up tacking a bolt to it. I don't know why I didn't think of that earlier, but I guess thats why this is the best site on the internet. Thanks

    Alright, now from the point those pictures are at, how do you go about getting off the rotor? I need to replace a wheel stud and can't figure out anymore after I get the snap rings off. Thanks.

    3. Remove the locking hubs with an allen wrench, then use a small screw driver or pick to remove the inner and outer lock rings to get the inner splines out. Then use a couple of the allen bolts that held the locking hub in and screw them in so you can pull out the inner spline.
    4. Now here’s where you grab your Hub Socket and take off the first lock nut. Remove the washer and the second lock nut and you can pull the rotor/hub assembly right off.




    Then remove and replace your stud with a shop press, or a hammer if thats all you have. Be sure to press/hammer the new stud ALL the way in. DO NOT USE THE THREADS TO PULL IT IN! you can yeild the stud that way, and mess with the lug nut tapers...
