Re: replacing rear wheel bearings on 1999 hyundai sonata
for drum brakes with sealed hub(all one piece) remove lug nuts and wheel.
spray penetrating oil around studs if there is a big phillips head screw visible remove it with impact driver/if not use big ballpeen hammer ,tap on flat of drum near studs(becareful not to hit them) until drum loosens(your creating a shockwave to loosen rust)
once drum is off there are 4-bolts coming in from behind backing plate, remove them then hub should be able to be removed w/a little persuation from hammer.
with out sealed hub ,
remove dust cap,cotterpin,star washer(if equipped) do not re use cotter pin
remove nut then washer, wiggle brake drum and front bearing will come out.
put nut on shaft tighten 2-3 turns grab drum by sides and pull towards you this should remove drum leaving inner bearing/seal on shaft
to replace reverse procedure making sure to pack new bearings w/grease(take drum and use long punch to remove bearing races, use race/seal installer to install new races

Rear wheel bearing should not be very much. Front would be considerably more. Find a reputable mechanic with a reasonable shop rate. STAY AWAY from car dealerships , they always , always , always overcharge.
