    2002 93 Aero. 74,000 miles. The off side wheel bearing is grumbling, especially when turning left hand bends. How do you remove and replace the bearing, do you need special tools and could it be done at home by a mechanically competant owner? Any help or advice is welcomed! Thanks...

You need air tools, many differnet size sockets and a press. The strut/spindle and lower control arm have to come out all together. leaving the axle in the car.The spinlde cannot be removed from the strut. once removed, you can then unbolt the lower control arm ball joint nut, and seperate the lower control from the spindle - for ease for the press. press the hub out, remove the snap rings on either side and press the old bearing out. press in new bearing , install snap rings, press the hub in and reinstall. I just did one today... I have 15 years experience as a ford tech - Ugh bro.. - Josh

    I do not think this should be attempted unless you are a professional. The job for one side took me 2 -3 hours using a lift and a good press with many different attachments. I would not want to do it on the ground .. Good luck ! : )

Inner wheel bearing


The inner wheel bering is held in with a plate that is screwed in. no special tool is needed. You must remove the bearing housing from the brake disk. It took me 1.5 hours to do both sides.
