2003 Dodge Ram 3500 4X4 with 218K miles. Trying to replace front hubs. When trying to remove them, the power steering method didn't work. Tried using a chisel to break the seal between the hub and the mounting face. Bent the chisel. Other than a lot of banging, any other methods I should be looking at? Thanks

Heat may be your only alternative, get the torch out.
Never seen one that you couldn't press out with the steering wheel.
Maybe a slide hammer, but that may just pull the bearing apart.

Did you try beating on the hub while using the P/S method.Sometimes you need the pressure as well as a good shock.

You'd have to have really long flexible arms to be able to do that! :oops: 🤣
