    You will want a new collar nut (03) and should replace the cup (02) while you're in there.

      As above. Changing bearings offers a good oppertunity to replace rusted/torn brake disk Shields

          They are a press fit, but not very tight.

          All I did was put the hub in a vise, then used a brass bar and a hammer to tap them off. Just make sure you tap from all sides to keep the ring from getting too crooked on the hub.

          Then you can put the rings on the new hubs the same way....just gradually tap them on with the brass bar. It is one of those jobs that seems like it might be difficult, but it really isn't, just because the rings aren't all that tight.

            The lock nut and possibly the brake disc backing plate in case it's on its way out as replacing requires the bearing to be removed.
            Best replace the bolt that holds the brake disc to the hub too as the hex easily rounds off.
