That's called the wheel hub. The axle shaft should be pushed inward, and should slide out that way without too much aggravation. The hub however is pressed in, and you will break the bearing apart as you withdraw it (using a slide hammer) from the wheel carrier. If you want to take the wheel carrier and hub off as a unit, you need to unbolt the 5 links on the rear side. Then you can take the whole unit off to get the hub pressed out at a machine shop.
