My Ride: 99' 328i Sedan
I'm in the middle of doing both of my rear bearings. Using a B-90 tool but one of the stub axles was stuck in the hub and by Dad and I tried everything we could for days to get it out. were taking sledgehammers and gear pullers to it every which way. I broke down and bought a CTA 4305 because I read in another post that if you attach the tool then loosen the lugs 2 turns for clearance and tighten it down all the way, then hit the bolt with a sledge, it'll get it loose little by little. I bolted up the tool and didn't even need a sledge, it took the hub with the inner race out and left the axle spindle sitting there loose.
