    never dealt with auto hubs, so someone can tell you how to get those out...but once the hubs are out you will need a special hub socket tool (the kinda that has 4-prongs on it)Then stick it in there and take off the first lock nut, then you need to take out the lock washer with a pair of needle nose pliars or a small screw driver. Once the washer is out, use the hub socket to take of the inner hub nut, once the inner hub nut is off, the entire hub/rotor assembly will come off..to take to rotor off, you need to drivew out the wheel studs....I just use a 3lb sledge and replace the ones that are FUBAR. Install is reverse of removal, but be sure you set the torque specs CORRECTLY on the innner nut or you will smoke the bearing or have a wobly wheel...I do mine by feel so I don't know what the exact torque for the inner nut is, but I think it is around 35-45#...
