SOURCE: does the axle need to be pressed on?

They shouldn't need to be pressed in but there is a stubborn ring on the end that goes in the transmision that needs to be seated buy pushing on the axle with good force being carefull not rip the axle boots.

How do I replace the rear wheel hub on the 2002 Kia Spectra? I got it off but a piece stayed on and I can't get it off...


the rear hub is an assembly with the bearing. It's one piece! 50 bucks or so at any parts store. take off the axle nut, bearing/hub assembly slide right off and on. replace axle nut, done.

I need to remove the outend of the drive axle and am having troubles getting the axle out of the hub. Every other place has indicated that it just slides nicely out with little or no force. However on this...


Put the axle nut back on backwards (flat side out, so flat is even with the axle end...give it a sharp blow with a decent sized hammer and it will break loose.
