I've always just cut a diagonal groove with a grinder then put a cold chisel in the groove and smacked it with a hammer. That spreads the crack and it pulls rights off. Don't go so deep with the grinder that you hit the hub though.

Rear Hub Removal - 1978 911

.
.
.
An old thread, but very helpful - Thanks to all who have contributed . . .

Remove rear wheel hub -

Heat and big weight( 15#) on slide hammer did the job.
We had fairly new rear bearings and that may have made the removal more difficult.

Why remove a fairly new bearing . . . because we broke the left rear stub axle, hub
and brake rotor while racing - - maybe 40 year old parts and running over track
curbs contributed to the failure - so we are replacing with new parts the hubs, stub
axles, brake rotors and bearings (of course because you have to destroy the bearing
getting the hub out).

Regards,

Photos :


Heat on trailing arm - 15# on slide hammer -



Arn tool to remove bearing - easy and smooth



Left rear stub axle, hub and rotor failure - big sticky Hoosiers, etc. etc...

Potentially dumb question:

1) Do I need to remove the axle from the transmission before I remove the rear wheel hub using a slide hammer?

You need to remove the axle from the hub.
So you could split the axle at the hub CV.
