Trying to replace my front wheel bearing. I've disassembled everything from the knuckle except the drive shaft. How does that come out? I read Mr. Chapman's write up, but his numbered steps go right past that part without mentioning anything. Same with the service manual - it says to remove the two bolts attaching the knuckle to the shock absorber, then remove the knuckle, but it doesn't say how. Is the hub just supposed to slide off the axle, and mine is just stuck? I've pulled on it and tapped the back with a hammer. I'm afraid of pulling the entire driveshaft out of the transaxle or damaging something else on the drive shaft if I get aggressive.The boot has those metal clamps that don't unloosen that I can see. Do I cut those off to push the boot back to, maybe, access some nuts/whatever under there holding the knuckle to the drive shaft? Would I need buy new clamps and use some special tool to put them back on? I've never dealt with clamps like that but it looks like that boot has to come off. I didn't take the two nuts and one bolt off the lower suspension arm. I just used a ball joint tool and hammer to separate it.
