Yes, a hub puller should have used that in the first place. There is not enough material left now. I have removed broken hubs by cutting at keyway. I don't understand why when people ask for advice, they are so sure it won't work, without even trying?

It was a hub puller. It was a 2 prong hub puller. My dealer had a 3 prong and pulled it off just fine. But the 2 prong snaped it.

And the hub goes into the housing that holds the wheel motor. Which is why you cant get to all of it.

never seen a 2 prong puller. That was your big mistake. Dont know what to tell you with it now. the only thing i can think of is to cut the other non broken side off. Then use a grabber type puller on whats left and heat the hub before you put the gun to it.

That must've made a heck of a bang when it snapped. Although kinda expensive, have you considered replacing the whole assembly. (wheel motor & hub etc.) At least then you'd have a back up if it ever happened again.

On my WB it was the bearing that damaged the shaft and the seal just couldn't keep the oil in. Shaft way too expensive to repair.

For future reference in case anyone else stumbles across this thread you just snug up a 3 prong puller and tap the hub with a hammer and it will pop right off.

You are right, and you don't even have to grind quite all the way into the keyway, just close. Then a chisel will fissure the rest of it and the taper will release much easier.
