Check this video out for passenger side axle removal as a prerequisite for yanking the wheel bearings.

I will tell you, though. I attempted axle extraction last night and I bent a good pry bar trying to loosen the axle nut. Suffice it to say, my nuts are on real good.

I found some removal vids, however I'm concerned about putting the hub back on without the BMW tool.

TIA

looking for part number just for the bearing not the hub and bearing.

And trying to confirm Torque for the retaining nut on the axle to hold the hub and bearing on. I think 310 ft-lbs seems excessive.
