Does anyone know how change the rear wheel bearings.

Do you have to take off the bearing housing? I tried last week and could not remove the hub or the flange where the axle goes thru.

Could not find anything on the search. any input would be great!!!!!!

I have not done it yet but it looks like you remove large nut on end of axle, unbolt hub and pull off with bearings inside.
(after you remove wheel, jack up etc etc)

I tried that exact thing. The hub will not come off. I tried to pull it and the axle started moving towards the rear end.
