Re: rear wheel bearing fitting?
Ouch - it seemed somebody did not use a torque wrench when fitting the wheels last time. I find that getting wheels off - its better to do the "long lever" rather than "big hammer" - get the longest extension you can find. (And turn anti-clockwise
Now for the hub - Take the complete caliper off - there are normal bolts at the back of the caliper and move aside. Remove the two fastening studs and remove the spacer (if fitted) and the disk. There is a cap over the hub nut - remove and then undo the nut (32mm). The hub can then be hammered off.
Refitting is the reverse - remember to push the brake pads back (open the space for the disk between the pads.
Torque settings: The 32mm hub nut torque 42Nm - the disk studs 15Nm - caliper nuts 25Nm - wheel nuts 85Nm
Its not to difficult - good luck
