SOURCE: I'm trying to remove the
Your hub is a complete unit including wheel flange and bearing. Thje axle passes through the assembly. You will find three twelve point 13mm bolts that go into the rear of the hub through the steering knuckle.
To remove the assembly, Loosen those three bolts, run them out part way and use a socket you don't want (you will destroy it) Put the socket on each bolt and use a heavy hammer to drive the assembly out of the knuckle. Alternate sides so it does not bind. use lots of solvent on the hub parting surface.
One tip: Disconnect the tie rod end so the assembly is easy to turn from side to side.
The hub assembly is only rebuildable in a factory. It is replaced as a unit. While you have it apart, always check the axle universal for binding or play. If you remove the axle for any reason, when putting it back in don't drag it on the bottom of the tube, The seal is inside the tube next to the gear set. Dragging the axle will knock the seal out.

It's possible you have an issue with your starter motor, ignition switch or even the crank/cam sensor.
Have your diagnostic codes read by your local dealership or a mobile auto electrician, as this should immediately identify where the problem lies.
