Are there any special tools needed to replace a hub bearing on the rear passenger side with E brake on a 2007 Impala?

Just a socket set. You remove the wheel, take the drum off (or the brake caliper and rotor if it's disc brake) and remove the 4 bolts on the back side of the hub. They are usually 13mm or 15mm 12 point bolts. You may need to tap it with a hammer to get the bearing assembly off of the axle. That's it!

My rear hub on my blackcomb/mongoose just slips when I try to start riding, how do I fix this?

I am not familiar with this model, but you will either have a coaster type brake hub (pedal backwards to apply brakes) or you will have a freewheel type of hub that allows you to rotate the cranks backward without engaging anything.

If you have a coaster brake type hub then you will need to rebuild the hub, which is too complicated to explain in this post. Take it to your local bike shop (LBS) and buy a new wheel for about $25 - $50.

If you have a freewheel hub, then what is happening is the pawls inside the freewheel or the cassette are not engaging. They are activated by small springs within the freewheel or cassette. The springs could be broken, the pawls could be broken or a likely scenario is that the grease inside has become sticky or the pawls are rusty. You can try flushing it out with some Liquid Wrench or WD40 oil, by squirting the lube in the side of the freewheel/cassette (squirting it on the teeth of the cogs will do nothing). Look at the side of the hub around the axle, if you rotate the freewheel backwards you will see where it rotates around a stationary part and this is where you can squirt the oil in. It will take a few shots of oil and rotating the freewheel at the same time to work the oil into the pawls and springs. You can disassemble the freewheel/cassette but this requires specialized tools that most consumer don't have but they can be purchased at you LBS.

Alternatively, buy a new freewheel/cassette hub and you are in business. It requires a special tool to remove so once again, go to your LBS and they can remove it in a just a few seconds and install a new one just as quick and probably only charge you a nominal amount to do it ($10-20, which is the cost of the tool, but how often do you need to remove your freewheel, right?). A BMX freewheel is as cheap as $15 and up and a cassette varies from $10-50 depending on brand and quality.

Good luck, P.S. if you go the "oil flush" route, it will destroy the grease inside and you will have to squirt a little oil in there on a frequent basis to keep things running smooth.

Removal of rear wheel with internal geared 3-speed and coaster brake hub

Find the joiner link on the chain, remove the retainer clip followed by the link. Remove the chain. Remove the bolt holding the brake arm to the frame. Loosen the axle bolts on the wheel enough to be able to slide the rear wheel out of its slots on the frame.

How do you get the gear sprocket off the back tire of a mongoose crossway 450 bicycle

To remove any rear freewheel or cassette you will need to purchase a Park Tool. Park Tool is the best brand when it comes to bike repair. Google Park Tool and you can look through their products. You will need a cassette/freewheel remover. There are dozens of different companies that make hubs and cassettes (gear sprocket). Take a look at yours and see what company made it. You can than find out which tool with properly fit your cassette. These tools are made to fit in a wrench making hand removal easy. Some brands will require a chain whip. The only way you will know which too you need is by find the company name on the cassette/hub. Without this tool removal is virtually impossible. If you need help narrowing down which cassette remover you need you can always let me know the company name and I will let you know the proper cassette tool to purchase.

If you know anything about wheel building and casette removal and have the tools and you know the specs on the spokes just go online and search for them. Otherwise you may need to enlist a Bike Shop for the parts and/or expertise.
