How to remove front wheel bearing is a special tool required ?

I had to do my 2001 Yukon XL and it took about 4 hours of beating on a chisel with a short handled 10 pound sledge hammer to seperate the bearing from the hub. Even applying heat with a propane torch didn't help, if you had access to a acetylene torch it probably would have went quicker. I wanted to give up 5 times but just took a rest and went back at it.

Instructions on replace wheel bearing on 2005 f150 2wd front wheel

Johny brown is wrong.... the 2005 ford f150 2wd requires a rotor/bearing assembly it is really really easy to change...... jack it up remove wheel, 18 mm wrench to remove caliper mount... then remove spindle cotterpin and nylon nut (26mm? ) with any luck the rotor/bearing /hub will pull right off ...if not a make shift lever/puller should do the trick.... I actually had a bearing frozen on the spindle that i used heat and a small 3 jaw puller to get the bearing free.... if everything goes smoothly you should be done in less then 30 min

If you have everything off including the axle nuts you can dry a air hammer with a flat head against the flat surface of it or you might have to use a puller.

I need front whell bearings for toyota corona AT170. Could you please tell me how to replace the bearings.

When you remove the bolts that hold the struts to the wheel assembly, turn the nuts lose and then tap out the bolts. I was able to grab using the pozi lock pullers (OEM number 27107) that keeps the jaws pushed against the ridge of the race while in the extraction process. I had to jury rig something for the hole in the hub. I used a small nut and the flat side of a horseshoe to bridge the hole (Anything similar would probably work). Note that anytime using a puller that you have to tighten the puller as tight as you can with your fingers then using a hammer rap sharply the shaft of the puller one time to help dislodge the race. Repeat this process until you can turn the handle without the rapping. As the race pulls off the hub, I used a large washer and a nut to take up the space between the side of the horseshoe and the hub to get the race fully off. Here you can find quality auto parts to replace

ABS enguaging on its own. Replaced both front wheel bearings. What would cause this? Had a recent MVI done and the Mechanic said the front Right wheel bearing need to replaced. He put a new on on and...

Not supposed to use air gun on axle nut

Torque Wrench -- as you did

Check Wheel Sensors -- one may be bad or more
likely the mechanic damaged it.

Use a Volt Meter --put on A/C unplug sensor &
put meter on wires and spin the wheels

Do all four & compare

How do i repair a spindel and hub

I assume you mean a front wheel bearing went out?
Remove the axle nut.
Remove the wheel and brake caliper.
Remove the tierod end by first unbolting, then popping it off with a "picklefork" and hammer.
Remove the bottom balljoint.
Either unbolt the whole strut, or remove the spindle from the rest of the strut.
Pull the spindle off the axle splines.
Take the spindle to a press to push out the hollow stub axle.
Remove the bearing retainer.
The press out the bearing.
Do not use a hammer instead of a press, because it will damage the bearing. But you can use the weight of the vehicle like a press if you are really desperate.

Hub pulling problems

The front wheel bearing on you Cavalier is replaced as a assembly that unbolts from the back. You should not need a puller, it should pull off after you have removed the bolts and the axle nut.

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!
