W124 rear hub removal - has anyone done this?


I am trying to find out how hard it is to removed the rear wheel hub from the carrier on a W124. The factory manual specifies all kinds of fancy pullers and widgets. The Haynes 124 manual says after removing the driveshaft nut, it should tap off, and if not, then a puller may be required. A call to a friend at the dealers says these are a real b*tch and all the techs in the shop hate this job (prerequisite to a wheel bearing replacement.) That doesn't sound good.

Has anyone actually done this? Any feedback on the difficulty level, and if a homemade puller can be easily fabricated, if necessary at all?
