You will need several tools to replace the bearing besides a socket set of metric and standard sizes to remove the wheel and brake caliper. A 36mm socket (may be rented at some auto parts stores) An Impact Wrench for the 36mm socket (air or electric should work) A torque wrench (IMPORTANT!)- the 3 rear bearing bolts (12mm?) need to be torqued properly or else they will fail and cause the wheel to separate, i believe they need to be at 75 ft/lbs. Please check. Do not attempt to do this yourself unless you have the proper tools and know how to use them.  I recommend getting at least the Haynes manual that the stores have or buying the Dealers Service Manual (expensive but thorough and usually available on ebay!)

I have a 1989 jeep cherokee that has a roaring noise in the right front. it sounds like a wheel bearron and or u joint going bad. is it very difficult to change and do I need specal tools to replace the...


sounds like a wheel bearing,to check jack it up on that wheel then from top to bottom grab the tire and then try to move it up and down like your trying to pull it off if it moves alot its bad.no it doesnt take any special tools but it is difficult to remove.to replace the bearings they need to be pressed out and back in,or you can buy the whole unit,cost wise it only about 75.00 difference.

Below is a link to the front rotor and all components on a 4WD Jeep Cherokee.

4-Wheel Drive
  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the front wheels.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the front wheels.
  4. Remove the calipers, but don't disconnect the brake lines. Suspend the calipers out of the way.
  5. Remove the rotor.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten wheel lug nuts to 75 ft. lbs. (101 Nm).
Best of luck!

RELACING WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 95 JEEP GRAND


Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly
