    Change the bearings in the "carrier"..

    Is it hard to change those bearings?

    Are they just pressed into?, if what direction?

    Also how do I remove the shaft?

    Its a fairly simple process as long as you have a bearing/seal driver, micrometer and a pair of good snap ring pliers. Read the service manual for all of the specs on seal and shaft placement.

    Pay very close attention to the placement of the 2 rear seals. They dont just "butt" up against one another. They have a small gap between them. Look at the inside of the bearing housing and you will understand why. Follow the grease hose and look at where it introduces grease into the housing.
