    r50/2 FRONT wheel bearing stack removal

    looking for some advice about removing the bearing stack
    i have the hub cover off but i am not certain what to do with the axle bushing
    ausherman mentions this but when it is removed the axle just slides through the hub
    any help?
    thanks

    Can you upload some pictures showing where you currently are? IIRC I thought the axle was reversed to the opposite side and then the stack can be driven out. Duane usually has good info on this.

    i got the stack removed and cleaned up and regreased.
    always use the rear axle to drive out the stack
    with the front wheel the bushing spacer must be removed
    that is why you need to use the rear axle because the front axle is thinner
    i did find that one side of the stack was a French bearing
    maybe there is hope for humanity
    thank you Richard from benchmark bmw parts for your sage advice

    Glad you got things worked out! Richard and Vech are great even on the phone.
