    i'm not familiar with jags. but the basic principal is the same... have to start with some questions tho.... is it front wheel drive, all wheel drive ?

    basically you will need an air rachet and a puller for the bearing as it is usually a press fit.

    If there is no drive axle on the axle you want to replace the bearing it is much easier.

I believe the wheel bearing is bad. Can I change


Use a slide hammer, bearing puller and adapter to remove the old axle bearing.

special tools are required if the bearings are also to be serviced.

I would say if you don't have the tools and the time, I would take it to a garage.

You can do this job your self with common tools. Auto zone carries the wheel bearing you need and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the bearing. Here is a tip, to try to break the old wheel bearing from the axle. Just loosen the 4 bolts 3 mm that hold the bearing to the axle and put the wheel back on and drive the car back and forth a few times, hard on the brakes to break it free from the axle. Once the bearing breaks free from the axle, it should take you under 45 min to get the job done. Good luck and be safe.

The front pads are like all other cars, a rachet and a C Clamp. The special tool is sold at your local parts store, its a box with tips on it, as they screw in.

Passat 2003 tdi, brake pad change..


Proper size wrenches and a large C-clamp to push piston back into the caliper is only tools for the front, but back disk brakes require special tool to TURN the piston as it is pushed back into caliper to reset emergency brake. This tool can often be borrowed from Auto parts store or purchased from Harbor Freight http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=40732 for about $20. Don't try to service rear disks without the tool, Calipers can be broken if not retracted properly!

I need to know how to replace the shocks to my 1992 Lexus LS400 ny car is bouncing and rather than spending $1700.00 I would like to try this myself.


HI....Your car have "STRUTS" all around on each wheel and they each require a very special tool(Spring Compressor) without this tool, you'll need to apply 2500lbs of force to compress the coil. In essence, it's not possible to perform this task without this tool.
