No,either put the full hub on the floor and hit the disc,
Or,drop the hub and disc squarely from a few inches and disc will fall off the hub.

The hub and disc,come out of knuckle easier too I've found than mk7's.
Just make sure the holes for torx bolts into knuckle are clear on rebuild,as they aren't open at the back any more,you don't want any crap in them when refitting bearing bolts.
Oh,and it might be wise to replace the disc to hub bolts,we fit new ones,and quite often the old ones will snap with airgun before coming out,not an issue if you have new and are replacing the discs.
