Are there any howto's on this forum for how to change a rear wheel bearing. I'm going to be tackling it today and just wanted a write up if possible. Anyone know how long this is going to take? I do have access to a press but hopefully i can get it without it. Any help is appreciated!

1. Jack up rear of car
2. Remove wheel
3. Remove dust cap and remove large nut from spindle
4. Use a puller to pull the drum off the spindle
4. Press out old bearing
5. Press in new bearing
6. Reassemble, put some grease on the spindle before putting on the drum.

I hope this helps. It's pretty easy to do. Getting the drum off is usually the hardest part. The brake shoes dig a groove into the drum and makes it difficult to pull the drum off.
