    Not a Toyota bearing but on my tire/fuel can swing out.
    The bearing rusted out and left the inner part seized on the base of the spindle shaft.
    How can I remove it/ I tried lubricant and a hammer & punch to remove it but it's not budging. Does it need heat? How much?

    well, the bearing is already fucked, so i would try heating it up and prying it off. if penetrating oil didnt work, thats what i would do.

    just be careful it doesnt catch on fire in your garage lol. especially with all the grease and oil thats on it

    if you're good with a cutoff wheel, you could try your luck with cutting it off as well

    The builder will have a look at it this week and see if he can get it off, I know if I put a cutting wheel to it I would F it up for sure.
