Hi Jim,

Which are you looking to replace front or the back.

If you are doing the front you will need a Bearing Installer/Remover and it is a pretty big job if never done the newer wheel bearing.

If it is the rear then it won't be so bad to do yourself.

Let me know which one and I will gett the the pic and instructions.

Thanks for your responding to my question. I just got back in town to start work again. This is a front wheel drive 2 wheel drive. Right front drive axle in trans axle housing has star looking retainer and bolt and clip to hold retainer. The retainer rotates with drift pin and hammer. Need to know how to remove.
Axle rotates up and down with CV joint on and has growling sound. Greatly appreciate your help.

The inner drive shaft is held in place by a drift pin that holds it on the transaxle. The outer is held with a nut. On the inner part you have to steady the driveshaft and punch the drift pin out, sometime this can be a bit hard. If you are just changing the bearings then all you need to do is remove the outer nut that holds it in place, leaving the drive axle in place. Before disconnecting the steering nuckle make sure everything is suported. Then remove the steering nuckle as one piece. This way you will be able to press out the old bearings and press in the new ones.
