I need to replace it....aside from removing the axle nut, how is the hub removed from there? Anyone know?

The hub has to be pressed out with a hydraulic press. Need to remove the knuckle and do some rigging to get something solid to press against. If you are just wanting to replace the hub, you will also need to replace the bearing. The bearing will get damaged when it is pressed out. When I parted out one car, it took a good puller to push the axle shaft out of the hub.

Investing in a GOOD puller is a must !!! DO NOT try to push the stub axle through the hub by hitting it with a hammer.
