Removing old wheel bearings

1158 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?

+1, not quite rocket science but can be rather trying. I have much better success with a soft metal drift than with other implements of destruction. A quick shot of penetrating oil (PB, Kroil, etc) might not hurt either, but isn't usually necessary.
