I had the outer wheel bearing fail on me and I am in the middle of repairs. I need to know if I have to remove the knuckle to get the inside bearing out. When I removed the hub, the outer bearing fell out in pieces. I removed snap ring, but do not see how I can get the inside bearing to come out without removing the knuckle.

Hello mate.

I had the same thing happen to mine. I can't remember if you 'have' to remove the knuckle however i did to make it easier.. I know that doesn't help.

People on this site are really helpful so i am sure you will get some more input soon

Bumping this old thread with intel that could be helpful. Front wheel bearing, best method is to loosen 3 bolts that go thru the flange so they are just thru the flange. then strike 3 boltheads and drive thru. Use lots of blaster and pounding first. Here is a video of similar:
Rear bearings, pull the hub, and cut raceway with cutting wheel or side grinder. You can sometimes just cut a notch into the raceway and use a chisel in the notch to drive the raceway in circles, which will eventually loosen it off the hub.
