Re: 1993 Subaru Loyale Wheel Bearing Gone
Take it to a machine shop with a hydralic press, or find a big socket that fits on the OUTER bearing race and tap tap tap it out. Don't tap on the inner race as you will just blow the bearing apart with the outer race still stuck. If you go to the machine shop, have them press the new bearing in, otherwise you will need to be careful with the caveman approach to installing it not to get it cocked sideways or hammer on it much.

Hi, replacing the front wheel bearings on any vehicle is difficult if you don,t have the right tools, as the driveshaft and wheel hub (where the bearing is seated) needs to be removed. The hub housing the bearing may have to be heated (depending on corrosion) when the bearing is being pressed out, by using a heavy duty vice , and the new bearing is pressed in using the vice and the old bearing as a guide. I would strongly suggest you refer this repair to someone who has done this before, I personally would not undertake to change front bearings ever again, the first time for me was an experience I wouldn't want to undertake again. All the best.
Hi the only other thing it could really be is the wheel bearing itself, usually in subarus they grind or clunk with wheel movement so if you go faster so does the noise, a garage would be able to tell you strait away as you cant really pull them apart without the right gear. Also check the strut, very unlikely but if a spring is collapesd it wll make a similar noise but wont speed up etc, its also worth noting that a cv can make the noises you describe but it would have to be completly destroyed and quite noticable hope this helps
yes you need a press to remove the bearing and hub , you can use the same hub as long as where the hub goes into the bearing is not scored in any way . the knuckle would have to be taken off and sent to a machine shop if you done have a press. and you should also use caution when putting the nut back on thr axle.
