Cant remove the rotor and retainer clip


You will need a large bearing retaining nut socket (1-in drive) about 2 7/16th in or 61/62mm (I got mine at NAPA with a 1/2 in to 1-in drive converter) BUT BEFORE loosening the nut there is a small keeper under the bottom edge the nut at the top (12-oclock) position of the nut. Use a magnet to retrac this and then loosen the large bearing nut. You sometimes have to slightly move the nut "a hair" left or right to remove this bearing keeper. Once the keeper is out the nut will easily come off. The rest is easy. Good Luck!

Putting wheel bearings on vehicle


I discovered how to remove the front wheel bearings by phoning a FORD dealer after spending hours on sites like this getting nowhere ! The problem with removing said bearings from a front wheel drive 1990 Taurus and similar is the bearing must come out from the inside of the hub assy.After you have removed the retaining nut and the axle flange still won't budge, you must disconnect the lower steering link {ball joint} and pull the entire drive shaft out of the center of the hub.Underneath the seal for the existing bearing there is a retaining clip that holds in the bearing.If you sand the bore where bearing goes back it should be able to get back in without too much fight.

Wheel bearing


I've had that problem a few times myself, here's a few things you can do.

1.) Make sure you have the car in gear, this will keep the wheel assembly from spinning with the nut while you try to loosen it. Be sure the car is jacked up and secured with the e-brake.

2.) Ensure you have the right size socket for the hub nut, and use a long socket extention(breaker bar, the longer the socket extion the more torque you will get on nut) with a heavy duty socket wrench.

3.) If it still won't budge go grab a small blow torch and heat up the nut. You can also try penetrating oil to help loosen the nut. Alot of times if the bearings get really bad before being replaced they can sieze up alot of nuts.

It's a start, good luck and I hope this helps.
