I need to replace my wheel bearing on the passenger side and cannot get to the 3 bolts on the rear of the wheel hub. Due to the gear for the abs. I can get a wrench on the to bottom bolts but they will not budge and the top bolt is recessed and you cannot get a socket on any of the bolts because of the abs gear. And there is no half moon on the gear to enable you to access the bolts. Is there a special way to get to these bolt or some kind of special wrench I need to use. This repair should have only taken and 45 mins or less to complete and I have been on it an intire day trying to get to the rear bolts on the hub PLEASE help.
Thank you Rich Cleveland ohio

The axle must be released to acss these bolts. Once it is pushed in. You can reach the bolts.
