You mean your axle bearing? You have to place the brake drum on 2 block of wood. And by using a brass drift and hammer, drive the outer race of the inner bearing from the drum. The seal will come out at the same time.

Thanks. This is an all wheel drive vehicle and the bearings are in a bearing well that the shaft goes thru. The drum comes off seperately. I appreciate the help though

You should remove the rear axle and bearing housing as an assembly. Press the halfshaft from the housing. And then position the spacer inside the housing in a radial direction to gain access to the outer bearing. Place a brass drift to the outer bearing inner race. Then drive out the bearing, together with the oil by lightly tapping with a hammer.

Do not use the old bearing, if you installed the old bearing it may develop an abnormal noise.
