Hi from the uk seriously the best advice i will give you having done these is remove wheel then with foot brake applied? remove the drive shaft securing nut(cv joint ) tap the joint back ? then remove b/caliper assy then diconnect track rod steering end then remove the bolt and nut that secures the lower ball swivel joint (you may find this stiff but percevier try a lever bar and press suspension lower arm down ) then two bolts and nuts secure hub assy to strut ? remove these and you can pull complete assy off drive cv shaft now you are best to take the hub assy complete with rotor/disc to a local engineer shop or garage that has a press or bearing puller hydraulic press is best option ? and ask if they could remove the old bearing and fit new for a small fee ? believe me these bearings can be a cow and if you want a quick turnround? this is best way rather than potential damage by trying to hammer bearing races out ? just a little more advice clean up/wash off assy before you take it to shop it will be more helpfull to mechanic to work on be sure you renew the cv hub nut and re torque after reassembly hope these instructions help you ? best wishes

Changed rear bearing on 2001 Honda accord now it is tight and holding back when you drive


Is it the rear wheel bearing you have replaced?
If so, please jack up the rear wheel you fixed and try to spin the wheel by hand.
If it is tight, you will need to loosen the nut as it is too tight.
If it is loose, you may have your brakes too tight.
God bless your efforts.

Replace front wheel bearing 2009 Honda accord


Hello James.
I don't wish to insult you but replacing the front wheel bearing of a front wheel drive vehicle requires the sort of tool kit and skill level that if you need to ask how you do you do it you are unlikely to possess.

By the time a wheel bearing needs replacing it has been subjected to years of heat, cold and moisture and removing the bearing from the hub can be fraught with difficulties not covered by an average repair manual, difficulties which needs experience and equipment to overcome.
As if that isn't bad enough the work needed to clean and prepare the hub to accept the new bearing needs the realisation the assembly is a piece of precision equipment requiring very high standards if the replacement bearing is to have the best chance of returning a good life-span. This is also true of actually fitting the new bearing where if pressure isn't applied correctly it can be ruined in a second or have it's working life seriously shortened.

I suggest you ask an experienced someone else to fit the bearing this time while you observe.

How to replace front wheel bearings on a Honda Accord 2000?


Hi:
Changing the front wheel bearings on your Honda Accord are a bit of work: You must remove both front hub assemblies, and that entails undoing the axle nut, the tie rod , the brake caliper, and the other attachpoints on the hub. Then the wheel bearing needs to be pressed out of the hub. I usually have a machine shop do this for me. This is just a basic overview of the process, but wanted to let you know what you are in for...hope this helps!

Replacing front wheel bearings on a 1999 honda accord


there is a hub and a bearing assembly...usually you need to press the bearings into that hub...need a press to push out the old and press in the new...i replaced mine last year by going to the junkyard and taking out the hub and bearing assembly and just putting the whole thing into my car...much simpler..plus you learn how it goes together by taking it out in the boneyard..no press needed...plus if its genuine honda parts from a honda..(you can match the markings) its likely to be a very good part for a long time. Being used isn't always a bad thing as far as honda parts are concerned.This is from my own experience hope this helps you.

Replacing the front wheel bearings of a Honda Accord 1993 SE


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.
