Detailed descripsion and parts needed for the replacing of the rear weel bearing on a 1990 vw ceravelle
You didn't say whether it has disc or drum brakes on the rear but either way it shouldn't be a difficult job for someone with basic mechanic skills. If it has drums in the rear it is as simple as removing the outer dust cap, remove cotter key holding the lock nut in place then remove the grease seal on the inner side of the drum and wipe as much of the old grease as possible. Then the bearing races that the bearings ride on will need to be replaced, this can be difficult and dangerous so wear proper eye protection while using a long drift punch or flat tip chisel to drive the old races out, there are cutouts on the area around the race and you will need to go from side to side until they are out. Replacing the races is just a reverse order ans the race with the large opening down you will want to use a chisel laid flat across the race and carefully tap into position then use the flat end of the chisel to drive the race down until it is seated all the way in the hub taking care not to damage race and keep the safety glasses on. Then it will be packing the bearings with specified bearing grease, and installing new bearing seals and re installing hub and wheel. One other thing I advise all of my customers is to buy a repair manual for your car, they can be bought at most car parts stores or online from various publishers such as Haynes or Chilton for about $20 USD this is a very small price for most everything a consumer can service on their car.
