I have a 2013 V sedan I need to change out the rear hubs. What's the secret to getting to the three bolts that hold the hub??
Good idea on the axle removal. You tube here I come ...The three bolts are a BITCH to get to in my experience. I replaced both rear hubs on my '11 coupe. One side was worse than the other. I actually heavily modified a wrench to create a way to get to these bolts as there is only a tiny amount of access even with the axles 'collapsed' as much as possible.
What I did NOT try, but in hindsight I think may have been better, was to look up the procedure for axle removal and follow that direction to disconnect whichever suspension component is required to be able to tilt the knuckle away an allow the axle stub to be moved out of the hub. Don't actually remove the axle just gain room using the axle removal method.
