It sounds like you are trying to remove the hub, not disassemble bearings if you are trying to replace the rim. First off, replacing the rim requires you to rebuild the wheel, meaning re-lacing the spokes and truing the wheel. Unless you are very experinced in wheel building I sugguest you purchase a new rear wheel. Not only will it cost much less but it will save you much time and headache. Your local bike shop can help you with this. Hope this helps.

Why would my car shake no matter what rim and tire I use?

you don`t say if you had the wheel/tire balanced. you could have damaged the CV joint on that side causing a binding in the bearing.

Why is the rear wheel moving side to side on ladies venture crystal oversize mtb bicycle?

Sounds like a bent rim or it's out od square in the frame.
To check the "Out of Square" measure the distance from the rear axle to a point on the frame on each side of the bike. To check the rim for trueness; take the wheel off the bike mount it on a holder (or just hold it out at arms length with both hands and have someone spin the wheel; if it spins straight, the problem is being out of square on the bike, if it wobbles it's a bent rim.

Why is my bike broken

Most likely the problem is the bearing in the rear wheel. Your best solution is to find a different rear wheel as replacing the one there will be difficult if you don't have the sprocket removal tool. 7_16_2013_10_14_46_pm.jpg

How to remove a rear axle on a 98 Chevy K1500 truck

first up jack up the vehicle and remove the damaged wheel
fit the spare tire and then place an indicator ( rod on a brick ) close to the rim of the spare and turn the wheel
if the axle of hub is bent you will see the rim get closer then further away from the indicator as you turn the wheel
if it is , replace the axle and bearings
if not there will be no axle damage but the bearing could be "brinnelled "( a bearing term where the balls or rollers have been imprinted into the race from impact) in which bearing failure will become evident in 10-20,000 miles
next step is to go and get a rear end wheel alignment done as there could be suspension damage that will cause handling and tire wear problems

Wheel bearing is making the car shake what could be wrong

Need more information. Are you sure it is the wheel bearing? I replaced a wheel bearing on 1996 Corolla after it broke. Had to take wheel apart and replace with used bearing (from junk yard). Not that difficult, but you might check your rims on the wheel first. Have a tire shop balance your tires to see if you have a bent wheel rim. I had a tire shake until I would hit 70 MPH and it would disappear. Needed to change out tire rim to eliminate shake. It can cause bad wear on your tire.

My rear right side tire is wobbling on my cheverlote cavalier?

are the lug nuts tight?
If so you may want to remove the wheel to inspect more thoroughly as that is serious - you may have a possible broken lug bolt - hard to say more without more details.
: Possible bent rim?
Loose half shaft (depending on if front or rear?)
Bearing on the spindle could be shot if on the rear..
best regards
