Break the lugs loose on the wheel on the side to be replaced. Jack up the car and remove the wheel. Take off the rear differential cover and drain out the gear oil. Get a wide pan cause it makes a hell of a mess. You'll need to get a new gasket and about 1 1/2 quarts of new oil, and also limited slip additive. Take off the bearing caps from the differential. (2 bolts per side I think, if I remember right they're either 13 or 15 MM, I'm going from memory here.) You'll also need to take out the support bearing in the middle, it's a little rectangular piece with (I think) an 8 MM bolt holding it in. When that's done, push the axle in towards the center of the differential until you can get the C-clip off of the axle (this is what retains the axle in the diff) It may or may not be necessary to remove the brake disc/drum assembly, I can't remember...Oh, and if the axle is bent like mine was, have fun, I had to cut the lug studs off with a hacksaw to get the axle in far enough to remove the C-clip...This took me about 3 hours to do by myself.

You have a 99 Chevy Camaro and want to replace the right rear bearing does anyone know how to do this?

Remove the wheel and brakes. remove the differential cover. place vehicle in neutral. turn the driveshaft until you can see one 8 mm bolt that holds a shaft between the axles in place. Remove the bolt and the small shaft. push in on the axle where the rotor was then you should be able to see a c-clip on the axle inside the differential housing. Remove the clip(It just slides right out). now you should be able to just slide the axle right out. then just pry out the old axle seal and the bearing will be right behind it
