VR4 Rear hub bearings/ABS gear ring

Hi Joe, hope you’re doing great.

I watched your video on the rear axle hub replacement and wanted to find out if i want to change the outer bearing, how difficult is it to remove the ABS gear ring (sorry if calling it wrong). I’m doing a caliper restore and brake replacement, my brake dust shield and pretty much everything around it is covered in rust, so wanted to clean it up and paint as much as I can. However if i’m doing that, might as well change the bearings out too. In order to change the outer bearing looks like I’ll have to slide off the sensor ring.

You can remove both the ABS ring and outer bearing using a standard gear puller - I got one off eBay for about £20. You will need a press to push the new bearing and ABS ring back onto the shaft.

OK sounds good, thank you.
