How do i remove the hub assembly from the front wheel of my 2001 dodge ram RWD?


  • Jack up your Dodge Ram. Block the wheels to keep it from rolling as you work. Get started by removing the first tire and wheel assembly. Remove the hub extension and the brake caliper as well as the caliper adapter.
  • Remove the grease cap, cotter pin, nut lock, nut, washer and outer wheel bearing. Now, pull the old rotor off of the spindle. Clean the area with a damp cloth to remove any debris. Pack the wheel bearings with grease.
  • Install the new rotor and hub onto the spindle. Replace the outer wheel bearing, washer, and then the retaining nut. Torque the nut to 30 to 40 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub and rotor. Then tighten the nut and install the nut lock and a new cotter pin.
  • Clean the grease cap and then coat it with new wheel bearing grease and replace the cap. Put the caliper adapter back into place and then tighten the two mounting bolts with a torque wrench. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  • Repeat this process for each additional rotor and then lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts and test drive your Dodge Ram to make sure that the installation was successful.

    Replace front brake rotor


    Remove wheel, Remove brake caliper, remove brake caliper bracket, depending on which setup it is, either the rotor will just slide off now, or it will have a grease cap on the front, peck it off with a regular screwdriver and hammer, pull the big cotter pin, remove nut, then take off rotor, bearings will come out with rotor, if the bearings are good repack them with grease, and pack the front cap with grease when you put it back together.. just barely snug the nut, dont tighten it up. put the cotter cap and pin back in, tap the grease cap back on, bolt caliper bracket back on, put caliper with pads back on, put wheel back on, and your done.. hopefully you have the easy setup where you just pull the caliper bracket off, and put the new rotor on... but if it were me and you had my luck, you wouldnt have that model lol. hope this helps, and if you need any more help, feel free to ask, id be happy to assist you.

    How do you change the front rotors on a ford escort Zx2?


    1) Remove tires
    2) Remove 2 bolts that hold on the caliper (+ brake pads).
    3) Remove hub grease cap (should just pop off)
    4) Once the cap is removed, you'll see a large nut on the shaft with a pin through it. Remove pin and nut... the rotor will come off along with front bearing.

    I need to replace a Front wheel bearing on my 98 ford ranger.


    Remove the wheel and take off your brake caliper. Once you have the wheel off, you will see a dust cap in the center of the wheel. Remove the dust cap by using a pair of channel locks, don't use something to pry it loose as this will cause it to leak grease later. Once you have the dust cap off you will see inside a castle nut held in place with a cotter pin. Remove the pin and unscrew the nut. This will allow the rotor and bearing to come out. Replace the bearing with the new one using a high temp grease to grease them.... IMPORTANT: when you grease the new bearings make sure to grease them thoroughly. Put a glob of grease in the palm of your hand and slowly dab the sides of the new bearings in the grease (this will allow the bearings to be greased on the inside).... Put back together as you found it. NOTE: When tightening the castle nut, tighten it down tight and then release it a quarter turn back before before inserting the pin to hold it back in place. Good luck! Let me know how it goes.  PS If when you have the rotor off, you have trouble getting the inside bearing off try this very simple and useful trick: Put the rotor back on the spindle and thread the castle nut on a couple of times. Next **** the rotor across the nut. This will cause the bearing to hang up on the castle nut and simply pop out.

    Packing front wheel bearings


    what I do is put a glob of grease in the palm of my hand and push bearing down in to grease untill you see the grease come out of the bearing or you can go to your local parts store and get a bearing grease packer. also wipe spindal with a genorus glob and put grease in between bearing in rotor. To get to the bearings all you need to do is remove tire, center cap (outter grease seal) the silver cap in the center. the cotter pin, Nut, washer outter bearing then the rotor will slip off inner bearing is in rotor still being held in by inner grease seal take seal off replace with new one pack your bearings and reverse removal procedure when retightening nut do not make tight just snug the go another turn if you go to tight you will burn your bearings real fast.
