You will need several tools to replace the bearing besides a socket set of metric and standard sizes to remove the wheel and brake caliper. A 36mm socket (may be rented at some auto parts stores) An Impact Wrench for the 36mm socket (air or electric should work) A torque wrench (IMPORTANT!)- the 3 rear bearing bolts (12mm?) need to be torqued properly or else they will fail and cause the wheel to separate, i believe they need to be at 75 ft/lbs. Please check. Do not attempt to do this yourself unless you have the proper tools and know how to use them. I recommend getting at least the Haynes manual that the stores have or buying the Dealers Service Manual (expensive but thorough and usually available on ebay!)

SOURCE: wheel bearings
it is a bearing and hub assembly, average price is around $200 US
There are 2 designs, the cheaper ones have external ABS sensor, the more expensive has ABS sensor built into the hub assy..
here is a picture of the hub assy w/built in ABS sensor.

Remove tire, brake caliper and rotor (before doing this use a solid breaker bar and a long steel pipe to remove center nut on axle) It is tight (about 170lbs) Once everything is off, put the nut on the axle backweards and make it even with end. give it a tap with a hammer to break it free from the bearing splines. There are three 12point bolts on the backside of the steering knuckle. back them out a bit and use a chisel between the bearing and knuckle to get it free. Use lots of wd40 or other solvent. If you need to, hammer a bit on three bolts.But not so much you can't get a wrench on them. as bearing becomes free, remove bolts and finish. Assemble in oposite order (but no hammering) when tightening axle nut use # I gave you and do not loosen to get cotter pin through hole...tighten further.

SOURCE: replace the rear wheel bearing
better check a manual, The ones I have done do not have c-clips in the diff. You remove 4 nuts behind the brake backing plate, then use a slide hammer to pull out the axle shafts. Then the bearing retainer must be removed (cut or drill into it, the crack it with a hammer blow from a chisel), it should slide off the axle. Then use a bearing splitter and a press to remove the bearing. To install use a long pipe and press to install the new bearing and retainer. Change the seal while your in there. Hope this helps.
