Now you can start reassembly. Install the new rear bearing, making sure you drive it in until it's almost flush. If the bearing is flush, the shell will rub the end of the rotor shaft and dilute the grease, and the bearing will fail. The new front bearing is a drop-in replacement, although it may require a little tapping. Finally, screw the retainer back on.
