NOT a DIY.
Rear wheel bearings
On removal since it is bearing steel, with "googles" on strike the race with a cold chisel and it will shatter.
For installation BMW recommends three tools,
23 1 300
33 4 080
33 4 020
they pull the bearing in from the inner race.
hand tighten and lower car to floor for final torque, many have pulled them off the stands.
depending on size of nut:
22 mm is 129 to 155 ft lbs
27 mm is 173 to 192 ft lbs
Lug nuts are 66 to 81 ft lbs.
CV to drive flange are 42 to 46 ft lps.
