Re: Need to see a diagram of how to change rear wheel...
BMW uses CV shafts for the rear drive axle, the wheel bearing there is a pressed in factory sealed bearing and not removable other than using a press to remove it, to press it you will need to remove the lower control arm.

1) Break the torque on the center wheel nut and remove the nut and washer before jacking up the front end. 2) Jack up the front and remove the tire. 3) Remove the brake caliper and rotor. 4) After removing the rotor you will see the bearing assy. There are 3 torx bolts holding it on. You need to put the transmission in neutral to turn the hub and line up the hole to remove the bolts. 4) Knock it loose with a hammer and install in reverse order. The kit comes with a seal but I don't believe it's needed on a 96. Pretty simple job really... Good Luck.
Front Is pressed into hub & knuckle.Rear is a Hub/Bearing Assembly held in by 4 10mm bolts.Will need to pound out with hammer in rear after bolts come out,lots of rust holding them in.Front Knuckle has to come off,Then a large Snap ring,then press out the hub,then the wheel bearing.Hope this helps
Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.
If its got drums its no problem, remove the wheel, take off the dust cap in the center of the drum,remove the split pin and the center nut 24mm, i think.
Take off the drum, clean out the old grease from the bearing, and take out the roller bearings, then you need to knock out the bearing races with a punch.
Use the old races to knock the new ones in, grease the new bearings and reinsert to the races, reassemble to to rear hub.
Dont overtighten the nut, nipped up a bit and backed off will do
The wheel bearing assy is pressed into the hub---you need to remove the front hub assy and take it to a parts store that has a machine shop----or you go to a salvage yard and buy a used hub and install it--way easier...
what is it ur try to remove the brake or the bearing it does have drum brakes right ? now if it is you need to remove the dust cap on the center of the drum and remove cotterpin and then remove the large holddown nut then the drum will come off the bearings will be inside of the drum getback to me if any questions thx good luck
