    i cant figure out how to remove the hub/rotor assembly from my gm corporate 10 bolt front axle. ive had a few people look at it and we cant seem to figure it out. weve tried a puller and it seems like its requiring too much force to make it budge and id rather not damage anything in this process. any help would be appreciated. thanks

    Did you remove both spindle nuts? When you remove the locking hub there is a large nut, then a washer, then another nut. When you take those 3 things off and the brake caliper is off, grab the rotor and tug it should pop right off. The outer bearing should fall out in your lap so be careful to not drop it in the dirt.

    Like Sandawg said, You have the first spindle nut which is the nut with a notch in 4 areas that you use the hub socket on then the washer with all the holes in it that you can use a seal pick or screwdriver to scoot it off. If you are not familiar with it on the 2nd spindle nut there is a little cylinder that slides into one of the small holes on the washer and you have to scoot the washer out, toward you. Works good if you have a seal pick or two or use two screwdrivers and shimmy the washer out. Then use the hub socket on the 2nd spindle nut and then just tug on the rotor and the whole thing will come out. You can put money on the bearing falling to the floor so a towel on the ground is a good idea or oil drain pan to catch the bearing.

    well after all of the research ive done they all say exactly what you both have said but there is no spindle nut. there is an inner hub that is splined on the inside to the axle shaft and splined on the outside to the inside of the hub itself. if you need pictures i can do that if this description does not help. again thank you for all of you help

    You have to remove that the nuts are behind that. There should be a large snap ring in the outer diameter of the hub that holds that in. There might also be a small snap ring on the end of the stub shaft to keep the seal pulled tight. Clean it all off really well and you will see the rings.
