Question about Dodge Ram Pickup 1500
I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 4 wheel drive. I need to know how to remove the front hub assembly off the passenger side. I've already removed the brakes and rotor and center spindle nut. I've also already removed three 12 point bolts from the back side of the hub assembly. I still cannot get the hub assembly out of the hub frame to remove the drive shaft. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks you. cj2176
I have found that you need to first make sure the cv shaft is moving free in the bearing. soak everything with penitrating oil. you should be able to move shaft in & out a little. the hub is a very tight fit. you need to tap it some from side to side untill you see a little gap between hub and spindel. then place the head of a flat screw driver in that gap and all around the hub, prying back and forth where ever possible. soak, tap and pry all over. be hard on it if replacing, more gentle if not. good luck.
