If you are talking about the wheel speed sensor. you may not have a choice. if you live in a rusty climate some will not come out. use some spray lube but be prepared to replace them. they brake very often. good luck

What is the foot pounds for the front wheel bearings on a 1995 chrysler cirrus


Hello, If you Chrysler has replaceable wheel bearings and seal. This is the way it goes---pack the wheel bearing with new grease-install the bearing in the wheel nub--install new back wheel seal--coat the axle shaft with grease lightly, thing coat-----install wheel hub on to axle shaft...be careful here don't damage the rear hub seal------------insert front race washer---install axle shaft nut--tighten nut down wheel nut until it is firm with water pump pliers----spin the hub/with tire mounted.
(the wheel and hub will turn but not freely)----take the pliers and back off the axle nut 1/4 turn----now spin the wheel and axle hub, it should spin freely---now if doesn't spin freely---back off the axle nut about 1/16 or 1/32 (or just a little bit)-----now, spin the wheel and hub and if turn freely------------Now grab the top of the wheel/tire and move it back and forth.-----if there is some movement ---try tighten the axle nut just a little little bit, unit the one can barely feel some little movement in the wheel/tire and hub.-----------Now, spin the wheel/tire and hub and it should also turn freely.

If it does----install new and correct size of cotter pin and bent the ends around the axle nut.----

coat the inside of the hub cup with grease. Now, use an rubber or plastic hammer to install the cup on the wheel/tire hub. You are finished with one wheel bearing maintenance. Now do the other side.



I really don't know if you Chrysler Cirrus has replaceable wheel bearing. All the auto/trucks have replaceable hubs, that means that the replacement is total hub with axle shaft, sealed bearings, and seals. This is bolt to each wheel steering hub. This work to remove these one unit hubs.

Four bolts hold the axle hub to the steering hub. Hear is the problem!! it has rusted to the steering hub. Also, these hubs cost more than replacing bearings, races, seals to cool turn of $180 to $250+ I wish you luck in your replacement of wheel bearing on your Chrysler. GB..stewbison

How do iI remove the front wheel bearing?


The front wheel bearings on your Dodge Dakota allow the wheels to spin freely on the axle spindle. These sealed bearings may cause noise once they wear out, develop a pit on the races, bends and other damage that interfere with wheel performance. However, the front bearings form a single assembly with the wheel hubs and they should be replaced as a single unit. Fortunately, installing a new assembly is not a difficult process.

  1. Removing the Hub/Bearing Assembly
    • Before raising the front wheel(s), loosen the half shaft nut using an axle nut socket. Then remove the wheel/tire assembly and the half shaft nut. If your particular Dakota model comes equipped with an Anti-lock Bake System (ABS) sensor, remove the sensor form its bracket and move it aside.

      Now you are ready to remove the brake caliper and rotor. Make sure to secure the caliper to the coil spring using a piece of heavy wire. Do not let it hanging by the brake line to avoid damage to the brake hose attached to the caliper. With the caliper and rotor out of the way, you have access to the hub/bearing assembly mounting bolts.

      On some models, you can only access the hub/bearing mounting bolts through the holes in front of the hub/bearing assembly. Rotate the assembly by hand as you loosen and remove the mounting bolts. Once you remove the bolts, you can detach the hub/bearing from the steering knuckle and halfshaft. If the bearing assembly seems stuck to the halfshaft, use a 3 jaw gear puller to remove it.

My service traction light is one and my abs light is on


The abs makes the traction control work so fix the ABS first. The most common thing thea haqppens are the wheel speed sensers fail. In the front wheels the speed senser is incorperated into the front wheel bearing. these bearings are well known to fail at about 100 thousand miles and can fail aqs early as 80 thousand miles and most all of them fail before 140. You might notice a roaring sound ( like noisiy treaded tires) You can jack up one front wheel at a time and get in the car as your driving it and put the car in gear and run the car ( not moving but thwe trie is turing and listen for noise. I fht e wheel makes a roaring sound that gets worse as you go faster that wheel bearing is bad. Don't go over about 50 as with one tire on the groung the other that is turning, is going twice that fast or 100 MPH at 50 on the speedometer. Do the same test on the other wheel and if it's quiter or quite just change the noisy one. Once changed you just drive the car and the new wheel speed senmser will be reconized and the ABS light will go out as will the trac off light. If your ready to change both wheel bearings do so as they both have the same miles on them just not nessarily the same potholes and other rough pavement that makes them wear out faster. If thebearings are quite then you need to inspect the wires coming outr of the back of the wheel bearing.. Thjese wires get into troble and get unplugged or break the wire. If you havwe asscess to a scasnner that will address ABS systems it'll point out the ABS problem. Things that happen other than the wheel speed sensers are fuses blown for other reasons. The accumulater motor failure or extreamly cold weather the accumulate motor locks up in cold and blows the fuse. Thwe motors seldom fail but they can and do. Some veicals are nerer serviced and the brake fluild accumulates moisture ( as it's supossed to) and peaple never get the brakeing system seviced and the old brake fluild can freeze in cold weather and start croduing things. The Traction control sysem uses the brakes to control wheel spin by puting on the brake on the spinning wheel. If the system notices a wheel spinning. (Using the wheel speed sensers) So until the ABS is fixed don't try to fix the traction control system as it truly is part of the ABS systyem.

2002 Chevy venture are the front wheel bearings a big deal to change yourself. As in is it just unbolt and bolt or is there parts that have to be pressed on.


This wheel bearing is bolted in on average takes roughly an hour to change out. Just a matter of removing the axle nut, caliper cradle,bearing hub bolts and unplugging the abs sensor.

The codes read that there is a erractic wheel speed sensor signal problem ....the abs lights stay on


Many new vehicles including chevys have the wheel speed sensor and or abs sensor connected to the wheel bearing itself. Its a wire going right into the bearing which is sometimes visible. Over time the bearings get a little play in them and causes the sensor to read incorrectly. The only fix is to change the wheel bearings. (they come with the sensor too). Most of the time repair shops are a good option for this repair. Unless it is a bolt on style in which most DIY's can handle it just fine.

How to change wheel bearings on a 2004 chevy cavalier


There a bolt in bearing so they are pretty easy. Jack up the car, remove the tire/wheel, remove the caliper, remove the rotor, remove the axle nut, unplug ABS sensor if equipped, remove three bearing to knuckle bolts. remove the bearing.

Make sure you torque the axle nut to the proper spec after installing the new bearing. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to prematurely fail. Also get a good quality bearing. The less expensive bearings are less expensive for a reason. You don't need the most expensive one but you want one from a good manufacturer.

There is a humming noise coming from the front passenger wheel - would it be wheel bearings? I jacked up the van and pushed on the wheel and it didn't seem to give or wobble - what do you think?


does noise seem to increase as speed increases if so most likely is the hub bearing it,s a seal bearing and hub flange assembly good thing is you won,t have to press any bearings in and out but you will have to dig deep in the pocket it generally comes all together and with abs sensor it can be removed after removing brake caliper, pads ,caliper mount and rotor tehn remove nut at end of axle if you look on back side of the spindle you will see three or four bolts remove them and hub assembly should come off install in reverse order,remember to disconnect abs sensor on old and reconnect new

XK8 ABS FAULT LIGHT COMES ON INTERMITANTLY PLUS TRACTION FAULT SHOWS


Number of possibilities. Most likely culprit is wheel bearings. Have these checked. Big heavy car and wheel bearings do take a hammering on XK and XJ's. Once they go, the wheel speed sensors are out of line with the tracking ring and a fault code is thrown. As the TCS uses the same sensor, this also throws a fault. Next in line is the ABS unit (it's hardly ever the main block, but ECU itself, companies on the net offer rebuilt units. Finally it can be the ABS pump unit - but the fault codes will show if this is the case - or you can pull the pump unit plug out of the ABS unit and see if it has continuity with a multimeter - should be a low number of ohms. 8 times out of 10, it is wheel bearing.
