Default 85 club car rear bearing removal

How do you remove rear bearing from axle? Should there be a lot of play from side to side in the bearig?

No there should not be play in the bearing on the axle. The axle gets worn. Happened to me too. Seems to be a common problem on these old Club Cars. At least for me anyways the bearing is kinda hard to get off. You have to take off the clip on the bushing and the try to slide off the washers and bearing and such. A press would make it a lot easier.

Thanks. not really what I wanted to hear though. The axles are not cheap. The way it's designed, you can't even make a sleeve or bushing for it.

Likely the bearing is shot.... it took nearly 25 yrs to do so.... replace the bearing and go on..... you should be fine. And remember it is only a golf cart.... not a high speed, heavy load hauling machine. It would be nice if it were engineered a little better but I don't think the original engineers ever thought about 25 yrs down the road.... so throw a bearing and seal in it and enjoy

Well Im guessing that the bearing is not shot. On the axles I have seen the bearing is perfectly fine but the axle has a groove in it. The bearings are not even pressed on but only have a spring to hold tension on the bearing. So the bearing can move around on the shaft. Id take the axle to a machine shop and get in built up and the bearing pressed on. I'm just living with my worn axle. It leaks oil everywhere though.

I haven't fixed mine yet because I'm hoping to put a atv frame/suspension under this thing soon. So then I won't be using this rear end. I don't want to spend money on a part I'm not even gonna use.

I got the clips off and slid the seal spacers and bearings off and the shafts have big grooves where the bearings were riding. I'm sure this is where all the noise was coming from. I'm going to have them welded up and cut down to size and save some money. Thanks for the responses guys. I'll let you know how it turns out.
