    ^^^ What he said. There is a bearing with a nut in the rear. Not too hard to remove. What is the problem?

    The bearing and hub (rear) are one unit. Remove the hub to replace the bearing. Pretty easy. Use a 1-1/4" socket to remove, with a breaker bar....Replace the nut if possible. Torque to spec ( very critical ) and stake the nut into the groove on the spindle. No cotter pins required....ANy ques. just PM me...I have the Factory manual..

    Kinda have to have a wheel bearing. Without one it makes it darn near impossible to move. . . . . now what TYPE of bearing is a different question.

    I think you're talking about the front where you have to remove the axle nut. The rear has no axle, therefore no axle nut.

    but there is a 1 1/4 nut that needs to be removed on the rear. i think he just didnt know how to work it properly. once you remove that nut, the bearing slides right out.

    rear wheel bearings are insanely easy. its only 1 step harder then doing the brakes.

    Hmm. I guess I have to go look at my car to see. I guess I'm just used to GM's where there's three bolts that go through the knuckle to hold the hub/bearing assembly on...

    The rear has a spindle that the hub and bearing slide onto.

    If you have drum brakes you take the wheel, drum, then the 1 1/4" nut off it takes 5 minutes

    If it has disc brakes you take the wheel, caliper and bracket, rotor then the 1 1/4" nut off it takes about 10 minutes.
