Rear wheels

Removing the rear axle has some of its own concerns. A couple of things to note are as follows.

After removing all the brake parts, you need to remove the four bold holding the bearing seal cover.

Bearing Seal Cover

This cover holds the bearing seal and gaskets. You may need to have a pan underneath because some of the oil will leak out.


Notice that the cover is shaped a specific way. Make sure you re-install it in the same direction.

Next you have the bearing shim that in under the seal.


and the bearing cover seal that fits around the bearing.

It may take a while, but you can eventually get the bearing out. Behind the bearing is a spacer. If you remove this, be sure to note that it has a bevel that needs to be installed towards the inside of the shaft.
