    I have been trying to get the hub off of my 8 lug 10 bolt for a hour now with no luck. The problem im having is once i take the locking mech. off i have a ring that runs on the outside of the hub, similar to the lock ring on the front of the steering box, how do i get that off without breaking it??? This is the first time iv tried messing with this so all the info i get will help. TIA

    oh yea the point of all this is getting the rotors off /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    i use two mini screwdrivewrs.one to hold the ring from spinning in the hub then the other to pry under the snapring to lift it up a little.once u have it up a little you can take the one that you were using to keep the ring from moving andget under it farther in than the one that pried it up.you should be able to then pull the ring torward you slowly till it gets out of the groove that it stays in.then when you get that off the hub lock should come out.after that you take off the outer nut.i use a magnet to get the little spacer out.if it is stuck i hit it with a chisle lightly to brake it loose.then the inner nut can come off and the huib will then come off.just watch to make sure the outer bearing doesnt fall out in to the dirt.ask me how i know this.hahA.thats it,reverse that to get it all back in with proper torqueing technique /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gifs.

    Yep, what he said, I also find it helpful to use a dental type pick to get under the lock ring to pull it out. Good luck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    A very small screwdriver, or even a pocket knife also work for getting that bugger out of there. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
