Shop manual: Link to bearing replacement. ....You will need a retainer plate gasket between retainer and backing plate. Link to Gasket.

The bearing is a self contained unit with the race included. The only way the race comes out seperately is if the bearing has failed badly.
The outer race has an o-ring between it and the housing.
