I am trying to replace the rear wheel bearing on a 2005 ford focus and would like to know the best way to get the old bearing out of the drum. I do not have a press and have removed a snap ring.

If this is a 2wd, you should be able to just tap them out from the opposite side.

You could do that. Make sure the removal area isn't blocked. For example, place the drum on something that will allow room for the old bearing to come out.
