Question about 2002 Kia Optima
Top bolt is spinning with the shaft, I don't have a torch or air tools. Vice grips keep poping off...any help Also i cant get the wheel bearing out. it won't budge all parts are original .
The wheel bearing is pressed in and held in with a snap ring so you would need a shop press to make that easy to change. As far as the shock goes you can remove the whole thing from the car once on a bench you can try to hold the nut with a wrench and try turning the shaft. if your using factory parts you can get those shocks 2 ways either just the shock or the whole assembly.

It,s probebly that the knot that holds the bearing in plase is being plased too tight, It,s the oldest trick in the book... this way you will have return about every two or tree months to get it fixed, and so the mechanic can keep eating.

The rear drums are held on by a spindle nut. You first must remove the dust cap then unstake the nut and remove it. Behind that is a retaining washer and the outer bearing. The bearings can become a little stuck in which case a hammer can usually persuade them to loosen up.
