Can you just use the tools included with the Hub Tamer to remove the rear hub on a Forester 2001? Or do you have to use a slide hammer? Can't seem to tell if the rear hubs are floating or trapped. Does anyone know?

The rear hubs are pressed into the inner races of the wheel bearing, the only thing holding it in the housing is the axle nut. The floating rotor (or drum) then slides onto the studs attached to the hub.

Theres a big attachment included in the tool kit for removing the hub, but it doesn't really work for the rear. It is designed for front wheel drive cars so I imagine it would work for the front hub.

A slide hammer and adapter would be ideal, but I tapped the hub out from the inside with one of axle puller screws in the kit. Just be careful not to drop the hub as it comes out of the housing.

I just responded to your PM -- a bit sonner this time around. Last time, I think it took me over a year to sent you the specs for testing the ignition coil :eek:.

I was out of the country during most of that time, but even when I'm online, I often don't notice that I have a PM unless you give a heads up.
