Make sure the park brake is released.If the drums still wont come off it could be rusted onto the axle (spray with WD40 or some other penetrating oil),or the shoes have worn deeply into the drum and you will have to back off the adjuster until shoes clear the drum.If this is the problem,replace the shoes AND drum(s) It is also recommended to replace the springs that hold it on and together(combi-kit).

How do i get rear hub off to change brakes


First make sure that you block your front tires and that your emergency brake is off. You then should be able to take a hammer and tap (strongly) the hub and use a small pry bar or big flat head screw driver and pry off the hub. If the hub still proves to be stubborn than there is a brake adjustment tool that you can purchase that you will use to back off the tension on your rear brakes.

If you still can't get the hub off then call all of your local big chain auto stores and see if you can borrow a universal wheel hub puller/ rear brake drum remover tool. There is one that loans tools for free (AZ).

How to remove a rear hub assembly bearing on a 99 honda accord 4 cly 2.3.


acdf6cf.gif



The rear wheel bearing and hub unit are replaced as a unit.
  1. With the vehicle on the ground, loosen the spindle nut.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support it safely.
  3. Remove the rear wheels.
  4. Remove the brake disc retaining screws.
  5. Unbolt the brake hose brackets from the knuckle.
  6. Remove the caliper bracket mounting bolts and hang the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire.
  7. Remove the brake disc. If the disc is frozen on the hub, screw two 8 x 1.25mm bolts evenly into the disc to push it away from the hub.
  8. Remove the spindle nut and pull the hub unit off of the spindle.

Clean the backing plate and the mating surfaces of the brake disc and hub with brake cleaner. Clean the spindle, washer, and hub with solvent.
To install:
  1. Inspect the hub unit for signs of damage or wear. If the bearings are worn, the entire unit must be replaced.
  2. Install the hub unit and spindle washer onto the spindle. Install the spindle nut but do not tighten it.
  3. Install the brake disc and tighten the retaining screws to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
  4. Install the brake caliper and tighten the mounting bolts to 28 ft. lbs. (39 Nm). Install the brake hose brackets onto the knuckle and tighten the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. Install the rear wheels and lower the vehicle.
  6. With the vehicle on the ground, tighten the new spindle nut to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm), then stake the nut with a punch.
  7. Tighten the wheel nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
  8. Test the operation of the brakes.

ADJUSTMENT

The wheel bearings are not adjustable or repairable and should be replaced if found defective.

How to change rear wheel bearing in Mazda 6 2002 1.8


Pretty easy job, if you have rear disc brakes on the car remove the caliper and brake rotor and you will see the hub bearing it just bolts one of two ways from the rear of the backing plate there will be 4 bolts holding it on, or there will be a dust cap in the center of the bearing, remove it and you will see a nut remove the nut and take the hub off and replace. If you have rear drum brakes remove the brake drum and remove the hub the same way should not have to remove the brake shoes at all if you are careful they will stay in place.
