Rear hub overhaul? Help!

The last few days I have been hearing some scraping noise on the rear hub and decided its about time to take a look.

I have searched the Park Tool website and the closest to mine is the DT-HUGI.

I have been tempted to pull out the seal, but they highly advice not to, I have tried to pull the freehub out and it does not move at all.

Does anyone know how to open the assembly?

try pushing/pulling on the axle to see if it come out, if not then use a rubber hammer and hit the non-drive side of the axle to drive it out. the bearing carriage (the drive side) will come with it. once the axle is remove you should see a hollow bolt which will use a 10 mm hex to remove when you do the freehub will come might be able to use a knife to remove the seals just don't bend or hurt them in anyway. clean out the bearing and repack them with new grease, put the seals back in , reassemble the hub and you should be good to go.
