The first step, obviously, is to remove the wheel.

Remove the caliper mounting bolts , and hang the caliper assembly to one side. To prevent damage to the caliper assembly or brake hose, use a short piece of wire to hang the caliper from the undercarriage.

Remove the wheel speed sensor

Loosen the brake disc mounting screw , and then remove the brake disc from the hub .

Using a screwdriver, remove the hub cap

Remove the hub bearing flange nut .
.....Using a flat-tipped screwdriver, spread out the groove on the flange nut
.....Loosen the hub bearing flange nut

Remove the rear hub washer and rear hub assembly
