    ok so ur doing wheel bearings correct? what happens when u press it apart is the outer race will stay on the hub. u still gotta press that race off the hub too. make sure ur hub is ok before u reuse it. then hammer on ur outer seal to the bearing. then press the bearing inner race onto the hub. make sure u press on the inner part of the bearing or youll destroy it! spin the bearing while ur pressing make sure it doesnt bind. OH AND DONT FORGET UR BEARING BOLTS!

    well i tore a cv boot and replaced the axle just to make it easier and faster, but when i took the hub off, it all came off in one peice, not like the two shown in the pic above. im still confused by what exactly needs pressed. i see a black ring then two more metal rings or "race"? im guessing the middle ring or race is what needs to pushed back in? the black ring feels like a rubber seal, and the center one is solid all the way through with the notches cut inside for the axle.
