1st time poster!

I am at this exact point on my 1996 Geo Metro 1.3L restoration project.

The screws in the hub, outer hub area are stripped and won't come out. I assume they will have to be drilled out or attempted to be removed by using one of those stripped screw removal bits.

Once the 2 set screws are removed, then use a slide hammer?

Thanks for any advice guys!

That sounds like a pretty good plan, I would say go for it and see if it works.

HI
You are at the same point of replacing the brake rotor that I am with my 1992 Geo.
You say that your friend told you how to remove the hub. Could you tell me?
Is the hub nut keyed? Does it have right or left handed threads? I am replacing the left
( passenger side) brake rotor and pads. Also could you possibly know the exact part number? Thank you for your help.

Pretty much the best way is with a slide hammer. Just get one and it will be obvious how to attach it and get it to work

There are other ways to get it off though if you want to try other things. I have even taken the knuckle off the car and just tapped it out from the back side with a hammer. But a slide hammer is not that expensive so it is really the best bet.

The best thing to upgrade is find the front knuckles and brakes off a 96 up car and rear drums. You don't need the entire rear brakes, just the drums. Grab the 13 inch rims while you are at it and upgrade the whole thing. The advantage is you can now find tires a lot easier and you get a bit better gearing for mileage. Also don't forget to grab the 13 inch speedometer gear to keep your speedometer reading accurately. The wheel bearings on the 96 up cars are much easier to replace also. No slide hammer required for 96 up cars.

you should not have to pull the hub to do your rotors unless I missed something by not reading above.

if you do just get necessary tools and if the rotor won't come off use a rubber mallet and a large pry bar. google any problems someone else has probably done this already

A propane torch can be a big help, provided there is nothing in close proximity that could be damaged by the heat.
