Rear wheel bearing removal

Recommended Posts

Hey there,


I am going to be replacing my rear wheel bearings on the weekend and I just wanted to know if there were any tips or tricks or things to look out for before I dive into it.


R180 hub on a 99 GC8 STI. 


I am guessing I press out the spindle assembly first then remove the circlip and then press out the wheel bearing. Is it as simple as it sounds?

Everything up to November '00 uses the snap-ring setup. I'm not 100% sure about seals on either side of the bearing as there are no less than 3 seal-looking things on the parts diagram.
