Why do you need a hammer and chisel? Theres no woodwork required. When I replaced mine all was required was to take the brake caliper carriage off and use a 36mm socket and breaker bar to undo the nut. When I retightened the nut I just made sure it was sensibly tight. Pretty easy job.

Because most of the time the hub will come off but it will leave the rear bearing case on the shaft and its a b**ch to get off.
