yes it comes apart. it is in the bag with the bearing. dont forget to pack those w/ grease real good.

Ya i will, it came with grease and i bought some. what should i use? I got some crazy german lube that i cant read, but was reocmmended by GAP. It's called LIQUI MOLY PROFI LM 47 MoS2-Lanzeitfett.

yeah for sure. there is a trick to it. put a good amount in the palm of your hand. push down and out with the bearing in the other hand going around the entire bearing. Do this until you start to see grease come out the other end.
Good luck. Have fun doesnt take that long really.

the wheel bearings are so easy to do it's crazy, just rememe how you took the car apart and you should be fine. Oh the races are the metal rings that the bearing sits in. You have to tap them into the rotor then pack the bearing with grease and install, I see you're in naperville I may be able to come help depending on when you do them!

When i did mine the race was still on the rotors when i took them off.
I guess you could heat them and take them out or just tap them out with a screwdriver and hammer.
I just thought they were part of the rotor until i figured out i was missing the race washer in my new rotors.
Then i got the old rotors, took another look and then figured it out. Took me a set of bearings to learn but whatever, live and learn.
Are you upgrading your rotors or just replacing the rear wheel bearings?
