Question about 2002 Chevrolet Blazer
Remove the brake drum, remove the plate that holds the axle to the brake backing plate. The nuts are under the hub flange (where the wheel studs are), there is a hole in this flange to insert a socket on an extension. (you will need to rotate the hub flange to reach all four nuts.) After you get these nuts off, attach an axle puller (slide hammer) to the hub and pop the axle half-shaft out. Take this to a machine shop and have them press the old bearing off and press the new bearing on. Slide the half-shaft back in, and reinstall the nuts.
Might as well replace both bearings (left and right sides) while you are at it. Mark which side the axles come out of, often they are not interchangeable.
Sometimes you can rent or borrow the axle puller from a major chain auto store such as Checker or Auto Zone. They should be able to recommend a machine shop also, if they don't have the correct press.
