    Get some heat on the threaded side of the hub also and a good few taps can help release the rusty grip....

    In theory the joint knocks off the shaft but some times they can be a little reluctant to let go.

    That's what I thought I was trying to rember how the other side came off so best to pull it all out and give it a tap
