The Neon rear wheel hub is held to the vehicle much like the front wheel hubs. There are 4 bolts which torque into nuts that hold the hub onto the rear wheel suspension. To remove these bolts and the hub assembly you will first need to jack up the vehicle and remove the braking system from the corresponding side of the vehicle. Once out of the way you can remove the bolts by using the access holes on the hub plate itself. Be sure to hold the nuts on the other end with a wrench. Once all 4 have been removed you can then remove the rear hub assembly and place a new part into its place. The 4 bolts can be torqued down to 110 ft-lbs.
