If its the old type there is a grease cap in the centre of the brake hub this must be removed to gain acess to the bearing ,,, a blunt chisel or screwdriver will prize it off ,, inside you will see a split pin locking the adjustment nut in place ,, remove this and the nut can be undone easily with a plires ,,, the bearing is tapered so the nut is not tightened fully to allow for some clearance,,,once the nut is off the outer bearing and washer will come out by rocking the brake hub '' the hup should then come off and allow you to acess the inner bearing which isin the brake hub behind the grease seal ,, if you fit a new bearing be careful to not overtighten the nut or it will cause the bearing to wear out quickly,,, i find a pliers is the best tool to adjust the nut ,, you just tighten the nut with it and then loosen slightly to allow a tiny amount of clearence ,,,make sure you use axle stands and block the other wheels because the handbrake must be off when carrying out this repair

SOURCE: Torque setings

if it is a solid bearing do it up as tight as you can.if it is a tapered bearing do it up untill the nut is touching the bearing check the hub for play if you have got play do the nut up a bit more until the play is gone in the hub.make sure you do not over tighten the bearing or the wheel will not turn freely.the wheel needs to spin with no drag.

yes it is one big nut, however it looks like 4 individual nuts due to the fact that they are a thinly stacked layer or thin nuts held together by what you called the tab washer............only way to replace is to get a new one from ford........

Testimonial: "Thank-you for that, I have ordered a new one from the ford dealers. I just wonder why the 4 nuts were fitted in the first place? thank you"

Bad rear wheel bearings


You do not say which side, but I can just about guarantee that it is the LEFT Rear thats bad. I've done 2 different EGGS w/ this problem. Seal goes out, leaks into the drum, wipes out brakes... bearing. I repeat, on both vans, only Left side was bad. I still have both vans w/ over 200k on ea. & have never had to do the right side bearing/seal on either.
!. buy a new wheel Bering & a new seal fir the left side. From the same auto parts store (ck 1st to see which one will allow this, then buy u'r parts from them) borrow a wheel puller / slap-hammer. 2. Jack-up left rear, & set this side of axle on stable jack stand. Leave other 3 wheels on ground, chock all 3 securely. 3. remove wheel, drum, brake shoes... etc. 4. Attach wheel puller to lug studs as instructed (just ask someone or get directions) You are going to be slamming the sliding weight back on the shaft to the hilt, repeatedly, until the other end of the axle pops out of the 3rd member. At that point remove the hammer, remove the shaft. leave van as is. 5. this is when U take the shaft & new bearing to a auto machine shop/parts house/repair shop/friend's place..... whatever... w/ the proper PRESS to remove the old bearing & instal the new. cost me $25 for this where I went. 6. Back @ the van, replace the b-Seal. try not to screw it up. use wood block (pice of 2x4 worked for me) lite coat of grease on o/s of seal heaps instal. Once seal is "tapped" into place, insert the axle w/ new bearing all the way until it seats into place. May require a firm stab to seat properly, do not hammer it at this point. 7. Replace brake shoes (if using new shoes, replace right side shoes also, just do ONE side @ a time so u have a guide in case u get mixed up reinstalling the shoes)
Worked 2 times for me..... or pay a Mechanic to do for U. This is Not that hard a Shade-tree fix. Luck :) gettocar

I need to replce my rotor's on an e-250 van. How do I remove them?


Place van in park and place chocks behind the rear wheels. Jack up the van and place two jack stands underneath the frame. Remove the front tires. Loosen the bolts holding the caliper assemblies and use a large flat screwdriver to pull the caliper 1/16 in. Remove the bolts holding the calipers and pads and set the assembly up out of the way. Do not put any strain on the brake lines. Take off the bearing caps. Remove the cotter pins and wheel bearing nuts. Pull the rotors off. Inspect and have them machined or replace them with new.

99 dodge ram van 3500 rear end loud nose when the veh is moving, i have checked the rear oil and it is full.


It could be bad pinion bearings, broken spider gears, etc. inside the differential. It could also be an axle bearing. Check the insides of your rear wheels to see if there is any rear-end grease coming out near the wheel end of the axle. If there is oil coming out, then you have a bad wheel bearing. Otherwise, you will have to remove the differential cover to check for metal particles in the rear end and to see if there are any broken gears.

Rear wheel bearing


if its like the 99 winstar:

safely support the van, remove rear wheel, remove brake drum, remove grease cap. remove caged locknut assembly (38mm socket i think.) then pull the hub assembly from the axel. you may need to cut away the inner race if the bearing falls apart. clean axel, apply alittle anti size compound, then push on the new hub assembly. tighten down the hub nut to specifications (should be on the leaflet in the new bearing package), install dust cap, install drum, install wheel, lower and drive :)

I AM TRYING TO RE NEW THE REAR BREAK PADS ON MY VW CADDY VAN , BUT HAVE FOUND IT IMPOSSIBLE TO PUSH THE PISTON ON THE CALIPER BACK IN ORDER TO POSITION OVER THE NEW PADS . I HAVE CARRIED OUT THE SAME...


hi from uk the rear brake calipers are auto adjust and so to reset the pistons back into calipers you need to rewind clockwise the piston whilst pushing piston back there is a tool for this purpose which does job in minutes however!! you can improvise if you have an old socket and hacksaw ? you can look at piston and see there are two slots on it? if you cut away an old socket so left with prongs to fit these slots then fit t bar and short extension to socket then you can push and turn piston back make sure slots are in line as to able fitting of new pads one has notch on rear face to insert in piston slot this also works for other models with rear calipers ? cheaper than the tool at £40 to £60 inthe uk dependant on makers hope this helps/inspires you ?

Rear wheel


does the van shake or vibrate? does the van have tires on it ?start by switching the left rear with the right rear test drive and listen for soun if no sound then the tire has a bad steel belt replace tire if the sound is still present. jack up van and spin tire if no sound is heard replace wheel bearing and if there is still a sound look into brake drum for possible springs or clips that may have fallen into drum causing noise but i would say its more than likely the rear wheel bearing to change that u must buy a new bearing and follow instructions on replacing good
