I need to replace the off side rear wheel bearing on my new FD3S for it to pass the MOT.
I started taking the rear hub off, as described in the workshop manual. All went fine and everything came out and undone, until the last step
Basically i can\'t get the driveshaft spline out of the hub carrier. I tired taping the end of the hub to try and loosen it up, then i put a 3 leg bearing puller on it and that broke:mad:, but the driveshaft remains stuck fast inside the hub:rolleyes:
So is this a common problem on the rx?, as the manual does have a short note about tapping it out. But honesltly it is rock solid, hammering it just started to deform the end of the shaft:eek and i\'ve run out of ideas. Anyone got any ideas or will i have to take the driveshaft out aswell and get the techicians at work to press it out?
Cheers in advance,
P.S. does anyone know the size and spec of the rear wheel bearing so i can order one from a bearing supplier rather than paying mazda excessive amounts of money for one??
