Rear wheel bearings!$@&$)
Rear driver side wheel bearing went bad so I decided to replace both sides. Passenger side came out no problem and went in the same. The drivers side on the other hand is a not playing so nice. I pulled the center out of it while trying to pull it out, so now I have the outer casing stuck in there. Other then cutting it out you guys have any tips?

dry ice in there, you can also buy it in a can as a spray.

Brilliant, I tried using a torch on the outside but with no success

Cut it with a Dremmel.

I use butane, it acts like liquid nitrogen just not as extreme and can shrink those races a good bit, enough to tap them out easily.

Takes a full can though and helps to do it on a day over 80*.

To get mine out I used a hand operated hydraulic gear puller (pusher). Worked very well. Maybe you could hire one? Brand i have is 'Sykes Picavant'
