Yes you need to remove the drum.

It is a magnetic ring.

What about wheel bearing, is that an easy fix?

It is but you will need the tool to knock the bearing shells out and fit the new ones to be honest.

Is the chances of my wheel falling of due to bearing high?

On EBAY 11pc Bearing race driver set are selling around £15 and yes the bearing will fail.

Wicked thanks mate! You actually are amazing! The brake drum grinding to you does that sound like it has gone? Or could it be brake fluid?

Ignore the brake fluid thing that was a robot thing before you get to me a human it will be the bearing rumbling.

Unfortunately the bearing is humming from the left and my brake grinding from my right haha

I never took ot serious now im kinds worried sorry if im being annoying

Then it will need the brake shoes replacing and hand brake cables checking. Basically rear brake overhaul so replace the other bearing at the same time.

i need a left and right wheel bearing and a rear right brake drum?

As the bearing is so cheap I mean just replace that as you will have the brakes in bits anyway and it will be brake shoes you will need as well.
