Removal Procedure
The wheel bearing in the rear wheel hub is integrated into one unit. Therefore, the hub is non-serviceable. If the hub and/or bearing is damaged, replace the complete hub and bearing assembly. The bearing is not replaceable separately.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly. .
  3. Remove the rear caliper and bracket..
  4. Remove the brake rotor.
  5. Remove teh 4 bolts holding teh hub assembly to the knuckle. teh bolts are reached from behind the knuckle, under the vehicle.
  6. Remove the hub assembly.
