Rear Wheel Bearings, What tools will I need?

Just wondering if anyone has changed one of theirs, I have changed a front wheel bearing on my 84 318i but those are a hub and not just the bearing. Just need to know if I will need any additional tools besides a bearing puller and the 37 or 36mm socket(dont remember the exact size it was) If not Great. If I will need anything else please let me know.

No extra tool a hammer and chisel may be. You many what to buy the dust shield behind the bearing because if the inner race sticks on the shaft you may bent the shield knocking it off, and when itís bent they rub on the back off the bearing

i tried to take this i landed up just taking it to my mechanic cuz i didn't have the tools to do it. from behind drive the wheel hub out of the wheel bearing you would have to use a puller to remove the bearing inner race from the hub.

How long would it take a shop do it? There is one around here, but they charge $80 an hour

Yes, you will need a puller to remove that bearing. Any drive wheel bearing needs to be pulled out. Any non-drive bearing usually can come right out without any pulling device. Just for future reference =0

Oh and if you have the right pullers, the job wont take more than 45 minutes per wheel.

I think the second one has an idea to "ghetto rig" a puller to get the dang thing off.
