36mm hub nut as mentioned, Crank back down to 175 ft/lbs IIRC when done.

Three 6 point IIRC bolt hold the bearing on from the back of the knuckle. I cant remember the tq spec's for it off hand. No extra tools needed but a 19mm for lug nuts and 13mm, 12mm, maybe a 10mm 3/8 sockets.

To get the shaft out of the bearing there are a million ways, IMO do a search for MrBlane's nut/bolt tool that will press it right out with a turn of the wheel. Or the BFH and a pry bar works too. Good luck
