It would help a lot if I knew what kind of vehicle you have!!! If you have a vehicle with a rear differential, the diff cover must be removed. You will find a small bolt on the left side of the carrier that retains a large pin that goes through the spider gears. To remove axle, remove that small bolt, slide the pin out, then push the axle in. Remove the "c" clip on the axle end and slide axle out. DO NOT turn diff after removing pin or spider gears will fall out. Sometimes the small bolt is sheared off & when you remove it the end remains in the carrier. If this happens, you need to drill (very small bit) it out & remove with easy out or other removal tool.
If these instructions don't apply to what you have, it's because you did not say what you are working on!!!

The bearing is pressed in so you will have to carry the hub to a machine shop to have the old bearing pressed out and the new bearing pressed in once you have the hub off the car.
Process to remove hub is as follows (from the 1990 Miata Service manual)
Remove rear wheel, rear wheel brake caliper assembly (suspend with a rope), and disc plate.
Check for rear hub play with a dial indicator, if excessive play either tighten the locknut or remove hub and replace bearing.
To remove bearing bend up the locknut stake and remove axle nut - torque is between 159 - 217 ft pounds.
Now remove the hub, retaining ring, rear wheel knuckle, wheel bearing (if loose), dust cover.
Replace with new parts, locknut, dust cover, knuckle bushings and hub bolts (if worn).
Take knuckle with wheel bearing to machine shop and have old bearing pressed out and new bearing pressed in.
Assembly is reverse of the above.
I have personally found that by the time I pay a machine shop to do the removal and reinstall of the bearing and take my time into account it is less expensive to pay a good shop to do this work for me.

quite a difficult job without the use of a press but if you can see a circlip either side of hub you can change just bearings but normally you would have to press drive flange out of hub first to see any circlips
