Front wheel bearing instalation


Engage the emergency brake. Place the socket end of the tire wrench over the lug nuts and turn 45 degrees to break the nuts loose. Do not unseat the wheel from the wheel hub.
  • 2Jack the Sentra into the air using the factory front jack point. This is located behind the radiator.
  • Finish loosening the lug nuts and remove the wheel.
  • 4Unbolt the upper and lower caliper mounting bolts and lift the caliper off the brake rotor.
  • 5Secure the brake caliper to the coil springs above the brake system with zip ties.
  • 6Slide the brake rotor off the hub assembly.
  • 7Remove the bearing cap on your Sentra. To do this, you need to use channel locks. Grab the bearing cap with the end of the channel locks. Then, twist the channel locks back and forth. You will eventually be able to loosen the bearing cap so that you can pull it off.
  • 8Grab the end of the cotter pin on the spindle nut with pliers and pull it out of the nut. You may need to pull fairly hard, but the pin will come out.
  • 9Turn the spindle nut counterclockwise to remove the spindle nut.
  • 10Tap the wheel bearing out of place with a rubber mallet or a hammer.
  • 11Tap the bearing races out of the hub with a hammer and punch tool. You need to do this for both sides of the hub.
  • 12Clean the inside of the hub, the spindle, as well as the spindle nut brake parts cleaner and wipe them dry with a clean rag.
  • 13Install the new wheel bearing. Tap the new bearing into the hub using a rubber mallet. Make sure you are using a rubber mallet so that you do not damage the new bearing.
  • 14Reassemble the hub assembly, brake assembly, and put the wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts so that the wheel sits flush against the wheel hub. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  • 15Lower the Sentra to the ground and set the dial on a torque wrench to 100 lb-ft. Tighten the lug nuts clockwise until the wrench clicks. This will indicate that the proper torque value has been reached.

    I've got all the wheel nuts incl locking nut off my Golf back wheel, but can't get the wheel off, what am I doing wrong?


    At a guess, you've got alloy wheels, assuming so, this is a common problem.

    1) Make sure its on an axle stand, not just a scissor jack, and give the inside of the wheel a good old whack with a mallet, if you don't have a rubber hammer/mallet. Hold a piece of wood against the wheel and hit that.

    or

    2) Put the wheel nuts back on, just finger tight, then roll the car backwards and forwards, with luck the weight of the car should do the work for you.

    When you put you wheel back on, put some copper grease on the hub to stop it sticking again.

    I am wanting to replace the rear wheel studs that are broken. The wheel hub flange won't come off. Is there a special puller for this, do I need to apply more force or is there another method for removal?


    You do not remove the wheel hub flange, just follow the procedure that I replied to earlier, and this is the procedure if you do not want to obtain a special tool for pressing the lug studs;

    First you will have to pound the broken lug studs out of the wheel hub, then you will need a lug nut and about a half an inch thick of flat washers.

    1. Insert the new lug stud through the wheel hub from behind so that the threaded end is facing out towards you and then put some grease on the threads.

    2. Then slip the flat washers onto the lug stud followed by the lug nut, and run the lug nut down to take up the slack.

    3. Then using a breaker bar tighten the lug nut until it pulls the lug stud through the wheel hub and it is flush with the wheel hub.

    Be sure that the amount of flat washers used will make up for any non-threaded part of the lug stud that might stick out past the wheel hub preventing the lug nut from pulling the lug stud all the way through the wheel hub, and basically you do not want the lug nut to run out of threads before it can pull the lug stud flush with the wheel hub.

    Wheels often sieze themselves onto the hubs, Best thing is to jack the car up , place it on an axle stand, and hit the wheel rim, from inside out, place a piece of ragon the rimwhere you will hit it, one firm followed through hit, with a sledge hammer, you will need to rotate the wheel each time you hit the rim. Once the wheel is off, do what you must and on refitting, clean the area of the hub and the wheel parts where they mate with a wire brush, ideally after that if you can get some copperslip or grease, smear some around the wheel rim inner part and the hub where they mate. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES use the grease on the wheel studs, nuts or bolts, as it can cause the wheel fixture (nut or bolt ) to undo and the wheel can fall off. Hope that helps
