Club Car DS Wheel Bearings and Seals

Hi everybody, I am new here. I am working on restoring a 1987 Club Car DS. The rear wheel bearing seals were leaking all over the break drums so I dove in to replace bearings and seals. The passenger side went well. There is a spring behind the hub that compresses to allow movement if the bearing and sleeve to reveal a stop ring. Once the stop ring was removed the bearing and sleeve slid right of. On the drivers side however, there is no spring. (the exploded drawing I got from club car says there is one). The axle shaft is tapered larger toward the hub which does not allow the bearing or sleeve to slide back to reveal the stop ring. (if there is one). I can't get either the bearing or sleeve to budge!20201014_113708.jpg

I'm sorry but the pic makes it look like someone repaired the axle, maybe not but i just doesn't look right to me.
But definitely keep us updated, and i hope and i'm sure someone will be able to help. Good luck Timj and welcome to the forum

Ok, so I discovered the drivers side is totally different than the passenger side. The drivers side bearing and sleeve are just pressed on. I was able to get a mechanic friend with a press to get it off for me. I ordered new bearings and seals that arrived today and they sent the wrong seals. Since it is Saturday it will be Monday before I can call and get it straightened out. I can't do anything further until I get the seals.
