Removing old wheel bearings

1154 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Shep
I started working no my wheels last night. I was getting a bit tired, so I did not try to much, but I was not able to get the old wheel bearings out. I did not try heat as I am afraid the heat may damage the finish on the wheels. I am probably being too paranoid about that. Anyway, how do you all remove wheel bearings? Any tricks to make it easy?

Depends which rim you do it on. I believe the rear has a retaining ring where the front doesn't.
Get a thinner punch that you can put at a tighter angle to find that lip. The center piece kind of floats.

If you still cant get it I believe you can take the bearing apart but you're destroying it. Not that it will be used again. Get the center ring out of there and punch out the opposite side.
