I can't seem to find a thread that discusses how to change the front wheel bearing hub assembly for the '14. Am I just overlooking it or has this never been thoroughly discussed?

I've looked at the service manual and it looks fairly straightforward and not to unlike previous models. Can anyone provide any tips, size of drive shaft nut, etc?

Thanks

Get yourself one of these tools:

They pull the hub off the ball joint without damaging anything like the ball joint seal. Not expensive and will save you a lot of headache.

Besides that, follow the service manual carefully. Review it well before hand. Sounds like you are anyway :)

Torque specs are important, don't ignore them. Take your time and have fun.
