once you get this machine refurbished you will be ready for the next one,
this looks like quite a project and you have the skills to pull it off, pun intended.

So to remove the hub from the carrier do I press the hub out first or press the whole lot out at the same time? I didn't want to do the bearing but it is making a noise.

If you have a big dent puller the kind with the 5 pound weight ,
then use the proper anchor flange to the stud,
and pull the hub free of the bearing,
tap the axle shaft loose first.,
the hub will pull free with the inner race still pressed in place.
NOTE its easy to remove the inner race with a cut off wheel slicing the race then a chisel to fracture the slice.

Thanks Stan. I have them separated now. Does the hub have to heated to remove the remainder of the bearing or can it just be pressed out?

Cheers
Scott

If you read the WSM it outlines bearing replacement .
I use the MAPP gas torch to heat the hub carrier.
Heating the hub carrier will allow the bearing to be pressed out with with minimum force.
Put the new bearing into the freezer overnight .
Put the hub flange into the freezer as soon as you have it cleaned up.

Heat the hub carrier to about 250F spray some PB blaster on the bore, the new bearing will go in pretty easily.
NOTE with the bearing and hub carrier mated,
spin the inner bearings to transfer the heat from the hub carrier to the new bearing ,
once the beaing inner races are warm then install the frozen hub flange.

NOTE when refitting the hub to the bearing make sure the E brake shield is installed to the hub carrier.
the hub will be drawn into the new bearing with the stub shaft

NOTE dress the snapring area so there are no burrs as this will make bearing install difficult.
NOTE a big snapring tool should be used to limit bore damage,
if you start to pry the snapring out then it will usually result in burrs being created

DeWolf, I wish to apologize for a thread hi-jack! I did not press my Hub assembly out, I took it to a local non-dealer Porsche shop and they separated the units.
