If you have a torch that will heat that area quickly it should be ok. Just be careful of ball joint. I would also letpenetrating oil soak it overnight.

If you take hub and rotor off you can use a punch and tap it out from the front.

if you are removing the arm and havent touched the other side yet? Suggestion that I learned from here: Leave the sensor in place, but disconnect/unplug from the other end. Eliminates risk of damaging sensor by removal
