Drive a screwdriver or flat punch into the stake groove to peel the flare back on the nut. Use and impact gun or a breaker bar to do the rest.

To replace the rear hub bearing you: 1. Jack up the wheel and support it with a stand. 2. Remove the brake drum and shoes. 3. Remove the cover on the spindle. 4. Raise the staked portion of the spindle nut with a hammer and punch. 5. Remove the nut. 6. Unbolt the strut from the spindle. 7. Unbolt the trailing link from the spindle. 8. Unbolt the lateral links from the spindle. 9. Take the spindle and bearing to a machine shop. The old bearing must be pressed out and the new bearing pressed into the spindle.

You will need to remove the tire and wheel from your 1992 Nissan Stanza. Remove the brake pad spring and caliper. The brake assembly will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake pads.

The brake spindle goes through the center of the rotor. You will see it when rotor is removed.
