The front wheel bearing is pressed into the knuckle. You can remove the knuckle and bring it to a shop or a machine shop and have them press out the old one and press in the new one.

Replacement of wheel bearing 2004 saturn ion


Put the car's front on jackstands(front suspension hanging down) and chock the rear wheels.Remove the tire/wheel.Remove the bolt/nut for the lower balljoint.Remove the cotter pin on the large spindle nut.Remove the nut(you'll need a 1/2 or larger impact gun with the correct impact socket).Dislodge the ball joint from the knuckle(a large punch rapped on the sides of the knuckle hole will help to break it loose).Lower the control arm and pull the knuckle outward(the axle shaft should now slide out).Now you should be able to remove the bolts that retain the bearing assembly.Reassemble in reverse order,thread locking compound on the bolts for the bearing is probably a good idea.

How to replace front wheel bearrings on a 2005 aveo


the front wheel bearings on this model are pressed into the knuckle. This means the knuckle will need to be removed from the vehicle and then brought to either a machine shop are a repair facility than can press the old bearing out and then press in the new bearing.

Removing the knuckle should be fairly self explanatory.
-Separate the tie rod from the knuckle.
-remove the brake caliper.
-remove the rotor.
-remove the axle nut.
-separate the lower ball joint from the knuckle.
-remove the drive axle from the hub.
-remove the knuckle from the strut.

It is very important that the axle nut be torqued to the proper spec once the bearing has been replaced. Failure to do so will result in the bearing failing prematurely. It is also advisable to get a bearing from a quality, reputable, manufacturer. This is not the time to shop with you check book but it also doesn't mean you need the most expensive one either.

I need to know where may I find the manual or instructions on replacing a 2005 nissan maxima wheel bearing?


The front wheel bearing is a pressed in bearing. It will require the services of a machine shop to press out the old bearing and press in the new one. What you will need to do is separate the knuckle from the front suspension of the car.

Remove the axle nut. Separate the outer tie rod from the knuckle. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Separate the lower ball joint from the knuckle. Remove the two bolts that hold the knuckle to the strut. Once the knuckle is free you can take it into a machine shop or some auto shops and have the bearing pressed in and out. I will add that it is also common for the front hub (the part that has the wheel studs in it) to wear out on these as well so don't be surprised if they tell you you need one.

Replace front wheel bearing on 1998 saturn


The easiest way is to buy the knuckle and front hub together. It is more expensive but unless you have access to a press to press the knuckle from the hub and then press a new bearing in it will be impossible to replace.

Also like any wheel bearing job, change in pairs not just one. So change both front wheels because if one is going then the other is not far behind.

How do I change Wheel Bearing


First I need to know if it is a front or rear bearing. If its a front, you could do the majority of the labor yourself and save some $$. You need to remove the steering knuckle that has the failed bearing. Once this is out, find a shop that will press the bearing and hub out and press the new bearing in. This is not something you can do yourself, unless you own and know how to operate a hydraulic press. Once the bearing has been changed out simply reinstall the steering knuckle, and take your car to get an alignment. If you have a rear bearing they are very easy. Remove the wheel and brake drum, then remove the 4 10mm bolts behind the knuckle to unbolt the bearing. Reinstalling is just the reverse of that.
