Inner wheel bearing removal

Topic says it all how in the holy h*ll do I get this bearing out of the rotor. I'm doing a 5 lug conversion and i cannot seem to get the bearing out. I do not have a bearing removal kit either so is there a DIY way or is the kit absolutely needed? Click image for larger version

Flip it on the spindle and ram it home!

Shouldn't take much to pop out. If your trying to pry it out that'll never happen. Either pop it out with the spindle or if you have an impact socket with an extension slide thru other side and smack with a hammer.

Shop press. I had a similar situation with a bearing on my wife's CRV and that ****er was not coming out with a slide hammer or anything like that. Shop press had to put a TON of force on it and then CRACK and it pushed out.

Question I have is why do you need it out? You don't plan on reusing it do you?

If you remove the grease seal, it should come right out.

Another method is to screw the spindle nut onto the spindle, and then put the rotor onto the spindle, hooking the inner bearing over the nut. Then pull real hard towards you, to knock the bearing (and possibly the seal) out of the rotor, when it hits the spindle nut. Kind of like a slide hammer in reverse.

It is not good practice to mix used bearings and races. If the 5 lug rotor has a brand new race, you can probably get away with using your old bearing. Ideally, you should just put a new bearing, race, and grease seal in the 5 lug rotors and then you will be assred that the bearing will seat correctly and there won't be any problems down the road.

I would've just replaced it all. Your already there. Not very expensive to just get new bearings, seals, and pack em full of grease.

Your local Auto Parts store should have it all in stock. Not like you'll have down time waiting on shipping.

Noted. I didn't want to toss a part if it wasn't bad but when y'all put it that way I can't disagree. Preciate the look outs, I might as well replace my used parts since I've got everything taken off
