I assume you took off the 36mm CV nut? If so, a BFH is the tool you need....beat the crap out of it.

I had to put the bolts back in some and give them a tap with a hammer.

Take the nut off, then put it on backwards and thread it on a few turns...then hit the nut...it will push the cv in and pop the wheel bearing out. you don't need a puller

Doesn't the bearing assembly come out away from the cv?

It is all 1 sealed unit.

I removed the 3 bolts, and the cv nut and the thing practically fell off. i gave it a couple good love taps and done.

I know its one piece. But when you take it off it comes toward you right?

Yes it does come out, but the CV has play in it...so if you hit the CV in...it will break the seal of the cv cup against the wheel bearing, it will break the wheel bearing free. I don't like to hit it with a BFH because you can round out your opening on the spindle :)
