Replace big end bearing

What is the problem? It is not necessary to disassemble the whole engine. Take the engine out of engine compartment, remove the transmission, fly wheel, front timing cover, timing gears, oil pan, filter gauze, and finally the crankshaft. Leave the connecting rods in place, only remove the bearing shells. Re grind the crankshaft to the specifications and install it back in the reverse order of dis assembly.

How to change front hub assembly 2002 corolla

The best way is to take the entire steering knuckle to a qualified automotive machine shop and pay them to replace the hub and bearing assembly. My local machine shop charges $65 for the hub and bearing replacement job. Although you could do it yourself, pressing out the old bearing and pressing in the new one goes much better with a hydraulic press, and there is much less chance of botching the job and ending up with a bad bearing.

To remove the knuckle, first loosen the wheel lug nuts and the center axle nut. Then, raise and support the car safely, remove the wheel, remove the brakes, and then, in no particular order, remove the center axle nut, remove the outer tie rod from the knuckle (use a puller for this), remove the ball joint bolts from the lower control arm, remove the strut bolts from the knuckle, and remove the knuckle from the CV axle spline.

When re-installing, take care that you do not damage the new bearings and seals. In particular be sure to slide the axle smoothly into the hub without making contact with the bearing or seal.

Let me know if you have any questions.

1992 Toyota Corolla CV Joint

You can pick up an entire re manufactured axle assembly at your local auto parts store. In order to replace the assembly you will need to disconnect the tie rod end and the ball joint. Remove the spindle nut. Push the axle stub out of the hub. Now with a suitable container under the axle to catch spilled fluid pry the axle from the transmission housing. Install is the reverse of removal. For more detailed instructions and diagrams go to vehicle repair guides.
