You are looking at $197.88 to $229.09 for the hub assembly (this is for both the bearings and the hubs) and this is just a guess but anywhere from $95.00 to $125.00 for the labor cost
but you can do what I did find a place where the salvage yard is self service and take the hub and bearing assembly off the car in the yard and put on yours cause I only paid $18.00 for the hub and bearings taking them off and putting back on myself you can do it just take your time and have someone to help you and do one wheel at a time

How can I remove rear outer bearing?


New style bearings are all pressfit bearings, if your hub came right out of the bearing assembly, it is time for the whole assembly. The hub assembly has a locking ring that holds the outer bearing race inside the hub, after the wheel hub has been pressed out. Then, after the lockring has been removed it can be pressed out and the new bearing can be pressed back in and then the lockring reinserted. Then the wheel hub gets pressed in.

2wd front wheel need to replace bearings or hub assembly which is best


A Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Can Have Two Types Of Rear Wheel Bearings: Serviceable Bearings, Or Nonserviceable, Sealed Bearings. When Sealed Bearings Fail, The Bolts Holding The Bearing And Hub To The Axel Or Control Arm Must Be Removed. When Installing The New Bearing Assembly, Torque The Bolts To Specifications.Some Manufacturers require The Use Of New Fasteners When Rear Bearings And Hubs Are Replaced.

When A Serviceable Wheel Bearing Is Used, The Bearing Can Be Disassembled And Packed With Grease.It Is Serviced Like A Front Wheel Bearing On A Rear-wheel-Drive-Car.

I need to fix the rear passenger side wheel bearing on my 2002 corolla but i would like to take it apart so i dont have to buy the entire assembly.


The rear wheel bearings is a bolt in hub unit and is not separately serviceable on this car.

Any attempt to replace just the bearing will have to involve pressing the bearings out then taking them to local bearing suppliers and having replacement units sourced or made based on the dimensions, as their are no correct listings available for this application.
The cost would far exceed the $300 for the hub, and quickly.

How do I replace the hub assy on a 2004 ford explorer AWD?


Hi,
I was referring to the Haynes Repair Manual #36025, Ford Explorer 2002-2006, Chapter 10, "Hub and bearing assembly (rear) replacement": Due to the special tools and expertise required to press the hub and bearing from the rear knuckle, this job should be left to a professional mechanic. However, the knuckle may be removed and taken to an automotive machine shop or other qualified repair facility equipped with the necessary tools.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com
