SOURCE: nut or the end of the axle

Get a strong socket and a log breaker bar. I have a 4 foot breaker bar that hold 3/4 drive sockets. Mine was tight also but it came loose with that bar. The only other suggestion would be to heat it up quickly with a torch and go for it.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge ram 4WD front hub bearing

Here is the easiest way . take a 14mm socket and extentsion and place it on the bolts and place againt your axle tube and start your truck and turn your wheel against it instead of pounding you will use your powersteering like a press to get your hub out its quicker and less strenous than pounding on the bolts ive done this many times i even made a extentsion for it i use a 14mm 1/2 drive shallow socket and a extension thats about 4 inches long i know im posting late on this one but if it helps anyone out then great

How to repack front wheel bearings on a 98 Jeep Cherokee 4X4


YOU CAN"T is the short answer..... sorry,, RTM much>?
ive posted the free fsm like 300 times now on this car.
ever like search.?
first off, on all cars made, what the factory made or dealer sells ins one thing, what the after market does, is another.
a fact.
in fact some cars with Integrated hubs new, the aftermarket sells them and sells the rebuild kits too.
the book covers the service step by step.
what parts you use or by is your call.

now ill read that book for you.
btw I sold my 99 but not the books.
XJ jeep, the book is here, (over 301 posted,)

http://www.morris4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

at least you said its 4wd, not all are. 2points for that.

USA XJ jeep, 1998.
1988 pages.
the trick is learning how to navigate the book , chapter #
the fact is we look first, you didn't, what is there who knows.?
maybe the last shop put on serviceable hubs. right?
if you had looked at the back side, you'd have seen 3 bolts
holding it on. and that tells you what?, that they are integrated hubs.
on new car, and at Jeep parts counters. world wide.



26271221-ky1blxw0v1am10ilppsnvnq2-3-0.jpgnow lets do this backwards
lets pretend to buy the part, hark , you can online.
and see all the makers of parts aftermarket in 1 click
no kidding, a fact.
see the 8 makers here,(can be more)
all are 100% integrated, hubs, (not saying there are not other makers, or kits, the world is a huge place and I cant tell you
all answers world wide for sources)

you could off them, take them both to a shop, and ask for them to rebuild them at $100 /hr labor, but, i bet they just laugh at you.
I'm not. but why not just remove it , check it and if bad replace it.
take it to any auto-store in town, NAPA is best. and set it on the counter, and say, got this, answer yes.
how to repack unpackable bearings,.DIY.

shorter answer, R&R it.
get a shop to fix it.
buy the part first, and see what you got first.
look at it and ponder packing it.

1995 Chev 2500 will not start


The rotor and wheel bearing come out as an assembly. First put the axle nut back on tight before you do any hammering unless you want to put on a new wheel bearing anyway. If you hammer it with the nut off you risk the chance of separating the bearings in the hub and destroying it. Dont forget to remove the 3 or 4 bolts that hold the wheel bearing in from the back side. Once you get the hub broke loose from the truck then remove the axle nut and remove the assembly. Be careful not to break the abs sensor or wire. To remove the rotor from the hub place the assembly on the bench and drive out all of the lug bolts and the rotor will drop right off.)) I agree with this, good answer, and easy on the hammer.

I cant get the front hub assembly off my 03 buick rendevous


Items/Tools needed:

35mm or 1 3/8" axle socket
3/4 or 19mm socket for lug nuts or lug wrench
15mm socket for brake caliper and bracket
13mm socket for wheel bearing bolts (extentions as well)
Breaker bar or impact wrench to remove lug nuts and axle nut (Note: Do not use impact driver to install axle nut).
Torque wrench for axle nut
Hub puller - Optional
Hammer

Directions

1. Jack the appropriate side of the car up. Make sure the rear wheels are blocked and/or set the parking brake. Use a jackstand to support vehicle at subframe for safety.
2. Remove wheel.
3. Remove brake caliper and bracket.
4. Remove rotor.
5. Using 35mm axle socket, remove axle nut, turn counterclockwise. You will either need an impact or a long breaker bar. They are installed with a lot of torque or may be rusted out or corrroded.
6. Push the axle back as far as possible. It won't come all the way out or through the hub, but will become loose. You can either get a tool that will push it out like a hub puller, or just use a hammer making sure not to hit the axle shaft threads and damage them. Put the axle nut back on the axle shaft so it is flush with the top. Then place 35mm axle nut socket on the axle nut and tap on the 35mm socket with the hammer not the threads on the axle shaft spline.
7. Disconnect the wheel sensor connector and then remove hub side connector from the bracket (unclip).
8. Take a 13mm socket with extensions as needed and remove the 3 bolts on the backside of the bearing around the axle. Be sure to use PBBlaster to help loosen the bolts.
9. The hub/bearing should come loose without need needing a hub puller. Be sure to note the sheet metal spacer between the hub and spindle with also has the bracket for the wheel sensor connector.
10. Double check both parts (hubs) to make sure they match.
11. Lube the axle shaft splines with good quality bearing grease before installing the hub. Clean off any old grease and crud first.
12. Install the hub assembly with the wires from the bearing at the bottom. Line up hub splines with axle shaft splines and push in on hub. Note: Don't forget that sheet metal plate between the spindle and wheel bearing. Note: Make sure the wheel sensor wires don't get pinched by the axle shaft.
13. Install the 3 13mm bolts to 96ft lbs. Service manual recommends replacing with new ones. Some hubs like AC Delco will come with new bolts which have threadlocker.
14. Install the axle nut. As tightened down it will pull the driveshaft the rest of the way in. Torque axle nut to GM specs of 159 ft-lbs or the figure specified by the hub manufacturer. It is recommended to use a new axle nut but not necessary.
15. Install the rotor, brackets and caliper. Torque caliper bracket bolts to 137 ft-lb and caliper pin bolts to 63 ft-lb.
16. Install the connector to the sheet metal bracket and reconnect both connectors.
17. Install the wheel. Torque lug nuts in a star pattern at 100 ft-lbs each.
18. Road test car and ensure any ABS and TRAC OFF light are off.

I'm trying to remove the axle nut on my 1999 Dodge Ram 2500. I can't remember if they are left or right hand threads. Any suggestions? I'm working alone on this issue, trying to get to the wheel hub...


sould be standard left to loosen,, make sure you soak it with PB blaster or Kroil,, I've spun the nuts, before(plow trucks) and had to buy the stub shaft(dealer only $$$) and new U joints,, Keep soaking it!!! Hub bearings are pricey also,, good luck,, You will have to use the jaws to pull it off, and the bolts on the back side, soak those,, I ve separated the hubs before, and then i ve had some come off easy,, Good luck,, total fix $350-$1200 per side. keep soaking, is all i'm saying...

Right front wheel bearing is bad how do I change it


  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely. Place jackstands under the frame, then lower the vehicle slightly to allow the control arms to hang free.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning, then remove the hub/drive axle nut. Clean the threads of the nut.
    1. Unfasten the caliper mounting bolts, then remove and support the caliper aside with a suitable piece of wire.
    2. Remove the rotor by sliding it from the hub.
    3. If equipped with ABS, detach the front wheel speed sensor connector and unclip it from the dust shield.

    The hub and bearing are replaced only as an assembly.
    For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
  4. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub from the halfshaft.
  5. Remove the hub and bearing retaining bolts, shield, hub and bearing assembly and the O-ring.
  6. Separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle, using the proper tool.
  7. Remove the halfshaft assembly and tap the seal from the steering knuckle. Remove the steering knuckle from the hub.

What is needed to remedy right hand front wheel bearing play on a 1990 d21 4X4 ute


replace the bearing or wheel hub assembly.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 2wd Models NOTE: Refer to wheel bearing service and bearing preload adjustment procedures found in Section 1.
  1. Raise the front of the truck and support it with safety stands. Remove the wheels.
  2. Remove the brake caliper and suspend it with wire, out of the way. Remove the caliper torque plate if equipped.
  3. Remove the dust cap and then remove the cotter pin, lock washer (if equipped) nut lock and nut.
  4. Pull the hub/disc assembly off the spindle with the outer bearing. Don't let the bearing fall out.
  5. Pry the inner oil seal out and remove the inner bearing. To install:
  6. Clean and inspect the bearings and outer races.
  7. Using a brass drift and a hammer, drive out the bearing outer race. Press a new one into position.
  8. Pack the bearings with grease until it oozes out the other side. Coat the inside of the hub and cap with grease.
  9. Position the inner bearing into the hub, coat the oil seal with grease and press it into the hub.
  10. Press the hub assembly onto the spindle and install the outer bearing and thrust washer.
  11. Install the hub nut. Turn the hub a few times to seat the bearings and then loosen the nut until there is 0mm axial play. Using a spring tension gauge, check that the preload (with new grease seal installed) is 2.2–6.4 lbs. (9.8–28.4N)
  12. Install the lock-nut, new cotter pin and hub grease cap.
  13. Install the brake torque plate. Install the brake caliper.
  14. Install the wheels and lower the truck.
4wd Models The hub and bearing service procedures for a 4wd models are basically the same as those for a 2wd version, with the exception of removing the free running hub assembly and the bearing preload adjustment. Refer to Sections 1 and 7 for additional information. Adjust the preload after the wheel bearing is replaced or the front axle assembly is reassembled. BEARING PRELOAD ADJUSTMENT
  1. Thoroughly clean all parts and pack the wheel bearings.
  2. Apply grease to threaded portions of the spindle, grease seal lip and wheel hub.
  3. Tighten the wheel bearing lock-nut with a socket and torque wrench to 58–72 ft. lbs. (78–98 Nm).
  4. Rotate the hub in both directions a few times to seat the bearings. Loosen wheel bearing lock-nut.
  5. Retighten the lock-nut to 0.4–1.1 ft. lbs. (0.5–1.5 Nm).
  6. Turn wheel hub several times in both directions.
  7. Retighten the lock-nut to 0.4–1.1 ft. lbs. (0.5–1.5 Nm). Fig. 1: Exploded view of the front axle assembly — 2wd models 86718030.gif
    Fig. 2: Removing the bearing outer races 86718032.gif
    Fig. 3: Packing the wheel bearing with grease 86718033.gif
    Fig. 4: Pack the lip cavity of grease seal with grease 86718034.gif
    Fig. 5: Exploded view of the front axle assembly — 4wd models 86718031.gif

  8. Measure wheel bearing axial end-play. The wheel bearing end-play specification is 0.
  9. Install lock washer by tightening the lock-nut within 15–30 degrees.
  10. Turn wheel hub several times in both directions. Wheel bearing should be seated correctly.
  11. If necessary, measure wheel bearing preload. NOTE: Measure wheel bearing preload with a spring-type gauge; measure at wheel hub bolt, with tire removed. The hub assembly should rotate with 1.6–4.7 lbs. (0.73–2.13 kg) of pressure.
