normally with a large flatblade screwdriver and a hammer. Gently
at the joint between the cap and the flange of the hub.
Once the dust cap is off the bearing is usually held on the flange
castle-ated(?) nut and a splitpin. remove pin and nut and then
assy. One side might be left hand threaded, but probably not.
Once off generally drift / press out old bearing and press in new
Can you even get the bearing as a spare part?
Yes, taper rollers at a guess like my cheap flat pack ebay 1/2 ton jobby.
Get the numbers off the side of the race and go to a bearing factors - I
used The Bearing Mart, Jackson Street, Manchester. I think the cheap
Chinese bearings that come as standard only last a few thousand miles, well
one of mine only managed about 6 months of very occasional use. Replace them
with something better quality and you'll be fine for ages.
