How to remove hub on subaru 2002

Front or rear, if on the car, you need a slide hammer device. This bolts onto the wheel studs, with a thick rod that's aligned to the axle. The heavy slide weight runs along the rod to a stop and eventually pulls the hub off. Its usually easier to pull the entire knuckle off.

To remove the rear wheel bearings (which is what I suspect you want to do) you need a special tool to extract the bearings. On the front, a hydraulic press is required.

Hi my 1986 golf MK1 makes a knocking noise in the front which sounds like its on the body while driving, please help.

Those bushes would have to be shredded or missing for it to make a knocking sound. And should be a visible problem, I would think.

Wheel bearing

The front 'hub' bearing is 'pressed' out. You have to remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle and using a hydraulic press, replace the bearing by pressing out the old one and then pressing in the new one.
