Rear wheel/axle bearing???

Hey how come you guys didnt tell me that replacing the rear axle bearing would be so hard. Nothing seems too hard except for getting the retainer off. So what is the trick, with out a press of course?

thanks,

I use the old blue wrench to get the retainer off. Then just press the new bearing seal and retainer on.

The method shown in the factory shop manuel is to use a disc grinder to grind two opposing flats on the retainer until it can be removed.
Careful not to hit the axle shaft.
