Trying to do my rear bearing swap for the 1st time.

Pelican Technical Article - Mercedes SLK 230 - Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement

According to this page they used a bearing separator (or called bearing splitter) to pull the hub.



For some reason mine doesn't wanna move at all and instead it bent the tool (Harbor Freight large Bearing Splitter).
Also tried 3-leg puller, hub puller, harbor freight 3 lbs slide hammer, and a big ass 20 lbs slide hammer borrowed from a friend.

All of these have failed.

How did you guys do it? Did you have to remove half axle before you pull the hub? Mine are stuck on pretty good.
Any one of you managed to remove half axle bolts without stripping or breaking? I can't get them to move with my 450 lbs air impact wrench with long extension. Can't do it with hand tool the axle keep spinning.


Thanks.
