Easy way to remove hub...
Once you have the rotor off, bolt it back onto one of the wheels. Thread 2 bolts through the wheel and into the rotor (ie. reassemble as if these parts were on the car)
Put the wheel face down with the rotor and hub facing up, then it's a piece of cake to remove the hub bolts!
