Rear wheel bearings...

The job started with a seized connector.

Not a fun job and it is tough to remove the axle assembly. I've quickly made a tool to go behind the suspension arm to have something for my extractor to grab on; The tool rests behind the "ears" where the disk protection plate is attached to. 


Removing the bearing races inside is not easy; here it is after cleaning. 

The bearing race on the shaft is a challenge to remove. I've use a torch to expend it.

The look of that bearing is really cool. Seems really sturdy to me.
