Rear wheel bearing PLEASE HALLLP

Well as some of you may know I bought a 2003 zx5 with no history. I got the timing kit done and clutch kit upgraded to the larger size. I went for a test drive and could only use 3,4,5,6. Found out it was the square bushing trans side. On the way home my rear passenger wheel bearing gave up the ghost.

I am having a hell of a time getting the 13mm caliper bracket stud to come loose. Hit it with mapp gas for 30 sec, sprayed pbblaster, hit with mapp gas again and pb. Nothing. Do these not come off? Lol.

Anyways question #2. I bought the rear hub and bearing replacement so the bearing is pressed in. Any tips on how to replace? I know remove 30mm axle nut then press out the axle. But should I unbolt the 4 bolts on the rear side first?

Can this be done without removing thecaliper carrier bracket?

Okay I have a 2010 Ford Focus my passenger rear wheel bearing went bad as well. I bought the drum with the bearing already installed. Well the bearing was seized to the spindle I even got a hub puller, but even with a hub puller the drum would not separate from the spindle. If you can get the drum to separate from the spindle the only thing you have to take off is the 30 mm nut. I had to replace my spindle, drum with bearing installed, ABS speed sensor and abs ring.

I'm assuming you have rear disc maybe.
So once you remove the rotor the only thing you would have to take off is the 30 millimeter nut, and it should come right off the spindle.

You're going to have to buy yourself a spindle try to find the right new bolts. You may have to just break the heads off the old bolts. Put a breaker bar on there and pull till it snaps or breaks free.

Just keep working on those bolts, worst case they break and you need a new caliper and bracket. The bolt itself threads into the calipers bracket.

After you remove the caliper/rotor take the axle nut off and the bearing should come off(possibly with a little persuasion).
