i literally just did this about 10 minutes ago, just knock it off with a hammer, you dont need to remoe anything except the tire. i got a set of 4 at the junk yard for 1.51. with the hole that you are replaceing, rotate the spindle so that the replacement hole is at roughly between 7 and 8 oclock if you picture the spindle as a wheel. tap it in from the back and when you put the tire on, as you thread it it will seal all the way. good luck
