Yes you will have to remove the brake caliper. then the rotor. although its not necessary, some people find it easier to remove the tie rod end as well, just to allow for easier turning of the wheel. Then once the rotor and caliper are off, you will need to physically turn the steering one way or the other to access the bolts from behind the knuckle and remove them. Then repeat for all the bolts until removed. Then with a hammer, hammer on the back sid of the hub assembly, until it comes out. Please keep in mind that once the hammering starts the hub assembly might come apart so pay attention if this happens seek further help. good luck!

Hi. how would i repair a rear axle for a 2006 toyota corolla? i dont have a lift so will i need to take it to an autobody shop? if so how much do these repairs cost usually?

What are going to do to repair the axle? There really is no axle on front drive cars, the wheel assembly is connected to a hub that is mounted to the frame through swing arms. And, you would not take your car to a autobody shop for mechanical work. The cost of repairs depends on what is being done.

How to change front hub assembly 2002 corolla

The best way is to take the entire steering knuckle to a qualified automotive machine shop and pay them to replace the hub and bearing assembly. My local machine shop charges $65 for the hub and bearing replacement job. Although you could do it yourself, pressing out the old bearing and pressing in the new one goes much better with a hydraulic press, and there is much less chance of botching the job and ending up with a bad bearing.

To remove the knuckle, first loosen the wheel lug nuts and the center axle nut. Then, raise and support the car safely, remove the wheel, remove the brakes, and then, in no particular order, remove the center axle nut, remove the outer tie rod from the knuckle (use a puller for this), remove the ball joint bolts from the lower control arm, remove the strut bolts from the knuckle, and remove the knuckle from the CV axle spline.

When re-installing, take care that you do not damage the new bearings and seals. In particular be sure to slide the axle smoothly into the hub without making contact with the bearing or seal.

Let me know if you have any questions.
