technically ,,,, theres no abs hub or non abs hub.... All of the ABS components are up by the master cylinder... What you are seeing is a Speed sensor ... just unbolt brake caliper and remove the 3 or 4 bolts that hold on the hub assembly on ... and reverse order to put back on .... and as long as you dont loosen the brake line you wont have to bleed the brakes .... should only take a hour or two ...
Lightly losen the lug nuts with the tires on the the ground. Jack up the car and remove the tire according to the owner's manual. Make sure to block the wheels. After the tire is removed, release the park brake. Support the car on jack stands. Remove four bolts from the rear of hub. The hub nut will be 29 mm - it is important that you have a tight fit if you attempt to remove the nut.
At this point you MAY have to loosen or remove the remove the emergency brake cable. Either way the hub is ready to be removed. The front of the hub (with the lugs) and the bearing will come out and the back plate and brake shoes will remain in place.
Once you get it off, you may either purchase a hub assembly (which includes the hub with a new bearing in place ready-to-go) or take the existing hub and a replacement bearing to an auto machine shop which can easily remove the old bearing and install the new bearing. Using extreme care you can remove the old one using bearing pullers and prybars and replace the bearing using large deep sockets or a properly sized piece of steel pipe.
Since you have the hub apart, you should inspect the brake shoes and (brake) wheel cylinders and replace them as needed. Replace brake parts on both sides if you replace them on either.
Put the hub back into the brake shoes. It may only line up one way. Finger tighten ALL FOUR of the bolts and then tighten. Replace the tire and remove the lifting equipment. Start slowly so the brakes can readjust!
Front hub bearing, remove tire, remove caliper and caliper holding bracket, you do not have to remove brake caliper from brake hose, just set it aside, if 4X4 remove front axle nut that goes through center of rotor, also remove brake rotor, disconnect elec, A.B.S connector, remove three bolts on back side of hub bearing, remove hub bearing, some times you will need to knock hub bearing out with a hammer.Reverse to install new hub bearing.
First make sure that you block your front tires and that your emergency brake is off. You then should be able to take a hammer and tap (strongly) the hub and use a small pry bar or big flat head screw driver and pry off the hub. If the hub still proves to be stubborn than there is a brake adjustment tool that you can purchase that you will use to back off the tension on your rear brakes.
If you still can't get the hub off then call all of your local big chain auto stores and see if you can borrow a universal wheel hub puller/ rear brake drum remover tool. There is one that loans tools for free (AZ).
There should be a small slot on the bottom of the brake backing plate,they should be covered with a small rubber plug,remove the plug and it will allow access to the brake adjuster, back the adjuster off and you should be able to remove the hubs.
