With the axle out of the car, take it over to the bench and remove the axle bearing and retainer using a cut-off wheel as shown. Take care not to cut into the axle. Cut the axle retainer and bearing down to the axle and then turn the axle over 180 degrees and repeat the process. You will be able to use a chisel and a hammer to break the retainer and bearing. Using the same procedure as for the front hubs, install the new longer wheel studs into both axles.
