There are a couple ways. Sometimes the drum will have threaded holes in it in which case you just turn a bolt through the thread slowly until the drum begins to seperate from the hub.
Otherwise you can pick up a puller from your local auto parts store for about $10-15.
Good luck

When appling brakes i sometimes hear grinding and ticking noise and abs light is on

A grinding noise is usually an indication that the brake pads are worn out. You may also have a defective wheel bearing causing this noise and in turn can cause the ABS light to come on due to poor sensor contact. Have the brakes and bearings inspected soon to avoid unnecessary costly repairs.

XL7 has a clicking scraping noise on drivers side in reverse only. Have checked brakes and they look ok. When I put on jacks with the hub off and turn by hand I can still hear the clicking grinding

Where is the noise? Front or back? At the brake or differential? Usually grinding and clicking is the rear brake drums. Brake shoes/hardware. Year, make, and model?

Cv joint or wheel bearing noise? 2008 Kia Rio sx. Grinding noise when turning.

Most likely a bearing. With the wheel on, raise that side off the ground and see if you can wiggle the wheel,place one hand on the right side at at the three oclock position and the other at the nine oclock position, press with one hand and pull with the other and see if it moves. If you can rock it in that manner then it is the bearing. Also be advised that you should replace them on both sides if you do one, do the other. Then get it aligned. IF it is a cv joint the test is almost the same except try to twist the tire to the front and back, Check for excess motion and clicking or other sounds.

Hi I have a 2008 Kia Rio that rides super but sometimes not all when I depress the brakes to stop there is a whine. Can anyone tell me what that is Rob

This noise could be generated from the front brake pads and rotors. Or brake dust accumulation in the rear brake drums. A simple cleaning process will/should fix this issue for you. Hope this helps...

I have a Hummer H3. I hear Noise from wheels while turning & doesn't stop. Also I hear a grinding noise when I hit the brakes. Dealer had to resurface rotors. Problem started at 15000 miles. Took it...


I have the same problem with my 2008 Hummer H3. I had the front and rear rotors resurfaced. I am now thinking of getting the rotors replaced with bigger more durable rotors. Solution about the sticking brake caliper sounds about right if you hear a grinding noise as you drive without even touching the brake pedal.

I have a 2002 Toyota Camry v4 with ABS. When I turn right I hear a rubbing/grinding sound coming from the rear driver side wheel area. It doesn't happen all of the time. If I have been driving for more...

May be a wheel bearing and one can test this:  Raise vehicle and spin wheel while you hold your hand on the strut-spring.  If you feel a vibration and is different than the other, probaby is your wheel bearing.  Typically a wheel bearing will make noise when turning one way, and less or no noise when turning the other - doesn't have to be a sharp turn.  

I, however, suspect that (assuming its drum brakes and not rotors) that the springs holding the brake-pads on let go or something is in the drums - perhaps just corrosion or around the out lip of the drum where it contacts the backing plate - or the backing plate (Steel disk behind the drum) itself is rusted and bending into the brake drum, or perhaps you just need brake shoes.  Try putting on your E-brake but not too tight and move car back and forth several times, then put a little tighter and do again - this may cure the problem some, but sounds like you need rear brake adjustment or cleaning.
If it's a disk brake - check bearing in same way, or look for something rubbing on the inside of inner fender around wheel.
Good luck.
