how do i change left rear bearing?

Asked by Jun 20, 2015 at 06:07 PM about the 2000 Subaru Outback Sport Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the left rear bearing blew out so hard it stopped the wheel from turning. igot all of the
ripped up stuff out,but I cant get the old outer casing out. It seems be frozen in there. I
know it's supposed to be a tight fit, but I even tried tapping it out from the inside.Icant get
the lower yolk bolt loose or the lower shock bolt .If I could I would press it out. So do I
have to heat or cut off those bolts?

OK, I would take this in to my independent mechanic for professional repair, but, if you really want to do this yourself, you can find the procedure the Subaru mechanics would use by signing up for this three day subscription and downloading the PDF procedure.

Get a wrench with torch experience to heat it first.
