Re: Whil a shop press press out axels on 78 99t - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
A 12 ton press should do the job. Thats all the shop that I used to work for had. Before you can press the axle assembly out of the knuckle you need to pull the hub and rotor assembly off with a puller. I've only used the factory SAAB puller as I have access to one. You should be able to use a large (and I mean large)jaw type puller to pull the hub/rotor assembly. Grip the hub on the lip between itself and the rotor. As far as pressing the bearing just use a large socket to press it out of the hub. Then use a socket large enough to press on the outer race of the bearingto refit it. You will need a large pair of snap-ring pliers to undo the snapring that retains the bearing.
