Question rear wheel bearing replacement

hi . i was wondering if anyone could tell me whats involved in pulling a rear wheel bearing on my 1986 samurai JX . i've had it apart partially in the past to check that it was the bearing going out . and i found that the axle shaft move's about 1/4" side to side . so it is the bearing . but anyway i was wondering if it is just as simple as it looks to be ? . from what i understand the following is what has to be done . pull the wheel and tire off then pull the brake drum . unhitch the parking brake cable and brake line . the zip out the four bolts holding the backing plate to the axle houseing and pull the axle and bearing out . if im missing something here it would great if someone would let me know . thanks

Rear Axle breakdown

The big problem is removing the the bearing retainer as you need to cut or grind it down. Most use a grinder to grind down one side of the retainer without damaging the axle. Once you are almost through, you should be able to knock it loose.

When installing the new retainer, cool the axle down in the fridge and heat the retainer in the oven. Should slip on easier that way.

The bearing is pressed on and will take some force to remove.

Since you are removing the axle bearings, now would be a good time to do the SJ410 retainer plate mod in case you ever need to remove the axle again.
