Bearing out of housing?

Did you remove the circlip and bolt on housing? If so, the bearing may be rusted to the housing.

A number of related topic threads below.

The bearing can be EXTREMELY difficult to get out of the housing!!!

The outer race and mount now being fused together by rust. A common problem with removing this bearing.

The bearing and mount should normally be an easy slide fit.

A few things to try.

If having a real torch, heat the bearing mount hot. Then use a slide hammer.

Or apply penetrating fluid (not WD-40) and wait for it to possible work.

If possible, wedge something between the axle CV joint body and housing to apply axle force to the bearing. Some have used a screw type ball joint remover. Then pound away on the axle or use the slide hammer. All while having someone hit the mount with a hammer. A better option is to use an air or electric hammer, chisel, rivet gun on the mount. If getting any movement of the bearing, apply more penetrating fluid.

If no torch, the best option is to remove the mount and axle to allow working on the unit at the bench. This is often done.

Even here it can be challenging to get the bearing out. At this point would consider a press or finding someone with a torch. Or taking it to a machine shop as some have had to do.

Personally would heat the mount. Or remove it and use a press.

It is possible to get the bearing out less the outer race. Thus consider this could happen.

There are host of posts video's on the internet on the subject of removing the Camry passengers side axle bearing. Most involve pounding away. Never had much luck pounding.
