It's the wire that needs to be disconnected to dismantle enough to get at the bearings properly. However, removing the back plate is a RRPITA - better to cut the wires and add a new waterproof connector pair. Same with the speed sensor wires.

I should have added that in any case you should disconnect the battery negative if you do any work on the wiring.
