6. Our first attempt at removal involved trying to get the unit bearing to spin in the knuckle after applying more heat and hitting it with a hammer and punch, but this didn't budge the piece at all. Next we reinstalled the four mounting bolts and tried to pound the unit bearing straight out by pounding on the bolt heads. This is only recommended if you plan on replacing all the mounting bolts. Again, the unit bearing just laughed at us.
