No , threads are normal , the torque is like 175-200 ft lbs , if your not using air tools you might put a pipe over your 1/2" breaker bar or ratchet , for more leverage , have somebody hold the brake pedal inside while you break it loose . keep trying . we know you can do it .

How to repack front wheel bearings on a 98 Jeep Cherokee 4X4


YOU CAN"T is the short answer..... sorry,, RTM much>?
ive posted the free fsm like 300 times now on this car.
ever like search.?
first off, on all cars made, what the factory made or dealer sells ins one thing, what the after market does, is another.
a fact.
in fact some cars with Integrated hubs new, the aftermarket sells them and sells the rebuild kits too.
the book covers the service step by step.
what parts you use or by is your call.

now ill read that book for you.
btw I sold my 99 but not the books.
XJ jeep, the book is here, (over 301 posted,)

http://www.morris4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

at least you said its 4wd, not all are. 2points for that.

USA XJ jeep, 1998.
1988 pages.
the trick is learning how to navigate the book , chapter #
the fact is we look first, you didn't, what is there who knows.?
maybe the last shop put on serviceable hubs. right?
if you had looked at the back side, you'd have seen 3 bolts
holding it on. and that tells you what?, that they are integrated hubs.
on new car, and at Jeep parts counters. world wide.



26271221-ky1blxw0v1am10ilppsnvnq2-3-0.jpgnow lets do this backwards
lets pretend to buy the part, hark , you can online.
and see all the makers of parts aftermarket in 1 click
no kidding, a fact.
see the 8 makers here,(can be more)
all are 100% integrated, hubs, (not saying there are not other makers, or kits, the world is a huge place and I cant tell you
all answers world wide for sources)

you could off them, take them both to a shop, and ask for them to rebuild them at $100 /hr labor, but, i bet they just laugh at you.
I'm not. but why not just remove it , check it and if bad replace it.
take it to any auto-store in town, NAPA is best. and set it on the counter, and say, got this, answer yes.
how to repack unpackable bearings,.DIY.

shorter answer, R&R it.
get a shop to fix it.
buy the part first, and see what you got first.
look at it and ponder packing it.

I cant get the front hub assembly off my 03 buick rendevous


Items/Tools needed:

35mm or 1 3/8" axle socket
3/4 or 19mm socket for lug nuts or lug wrench
15mm socket for brake caliper and bracket
13mm socket for wheel bearing bolts (extentions as well)
Breaker bar or impact wrench to remove lug nuts and axle nut (Note: Do not use impact driver to install axle nut).
Torque wrench for axle nut
Hub puller - Optional
Hammer

Directions

1. Jack the appropriate side of the car up. Make sure the rear wheels are blocked and/or set the parking brake. Use a jackstand to support vehicle at subframe for safety.
2. Remove wheel.
3. Remove brake caliper and bracket.
4. Remove rotor.
5. Using 35mm axle socket, remove axle nut, turn counterclockwise. You will either need an impact or a long breaker bar. They are installed with a lot of torque or may be rusted out or corrroded.
6. Push the axle back as far as possible. It won't come all the way out or through the hub, but will become loose. You can either get a tool that will push it out like a hub puller, or just use a hammer making sure not to hit the axle shaft threads and damage them. Put the axle nut back on the axle shaft so it is flush with the top. Then place 35mm axle nut socket on the axle nut and tap on the 35mm socket with the hammer not the threads on the axle shaft spline.
7. Disconnect the wheel sensor connector and then remove hub side connector from the bracket (unclip).
8. Take a 13mm socket with extensions as needed and remove the 3 bolts on the backside of the bearing around the axle. Be sure to use PBBlaster to help loosen the bolts.
9. The hub/bearing should come loose without need needing a hub puller. Be sure to note the sheet metal spacer between the hub and spindle with also has the bracket for the wheel sensor connector.
10. Double check both parts (hubs) to make sure they match.
11. Lube the axle shaft splines with good quality bearing grease before installing the hub. Clean off any old grease and crud first.
12. Install the hub assembly with the wires from the bearing at the bottom. Line up hub splines with axle shaft splines and push in on hub. Note: Don't forget that sheet metal plate between the spindle and wheel bearing. Note: Make sure the wheel sensor wires don't get pinched by the axle shaft.
13. Install the 3 13mm bolts to 96ft lbs. Service manual recommends replacing with new ones. Some hubs like AC Delco will come with new bolts which have threadlocker.
14. Install the axle nut. As tightened down it will pull the driveshaft the rest of the way in. Torque axle nut to GM specs of 159 ft-lbs or the figure specified by the hub manufacturer. It is recommended to use a new axle nut but not necessary.
15. Install the rotor, brackets and caliper. Torque caliper bracket bolts to 137 ft-lb and caliper pin bolts to 63 ft-lb.
16. Install the connector to the sheet metal bracket and reconnect both connectors.
17. Install the wheel. Torque lug nuts in a star pattern at 100 ft-lbs each.
18. Road test car and ensure any ABS and TRAC OFF light are off.

I would like to know if the wheel bearing is in the shaft or the hub?


The Constant Velocity (CV) joints are located on the inner and outer edges of the axle shaft. The axle shaft runs through the hub and bearing in the spindle.

How do you change the front bearings


hi, now this is a big job and the nut you need to undo you will need a air gun to undo is as it is torqued up that tight that you wont undo it using any hand tools but here is how you do it.
1. put car on axle stands so wheels are off the floor and remove the wheels.
2. On the side that the bearing needs replacing you need to undo the bottom ball joint witch is under neath the disk break should be just one nut and bolt.
3. is best to undo the track rod end from the steering rack this is the tie rod and should be located in the wheel hub towards the drivers door and is held in place with one nut from under neath.
4. after you undo both of these you will then need a ball joint splitter to sepperate these parts from the hub as they will be to tight to remove from their locating possition.
5. now to get to the bearing itself this is where you need an airgun or similar tool they use in a garage. now right at the centre of the wheel hub you will see a really bug nut attatched to the end of the drive shaft and you can see the end off the drive shaft coming through the hub. I think the nut is nearly a 30m or 32m socket to undo.
6. Once this is undone gently tap the end of the drive shaft through the hub whilst gently pulling the hub outwards dont pull the hub outwards if the drive shaft isnt coming free from the hub as you can pull the drive shaft out of the gearbox and then you will have a right mess with geasrbox oil everywhere as the drive shaft is only push fit into gear box.

If the drive shaft is coming free from the hub then keep pulling the hub towards you untill the drive shaft is free (secure driveshaft with string so as not to put stress on the drive shaft bearing).
Now you should be able to remove the old bearing and insert the new make sure you clean the old bearing out properly and use new grease to lube the new bearing.

When doing the drive shaft back up you need to use air gun again to tighten the nut up enough to be safe to drive as their is alot of pressure on these parts.
You wont undo the nut without a air compressor and air tools buying these would be more expensive than paying a garage to do the repairs themselves.
Please choose carefully as once you have started if you have any problems you cant take the car to a garage as it will be in bits.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
If you are going to do this yourself then please buy a workshop manual as this will give you the correct torque settings as the bearing has to be torqued up to a required setting else the bearing will just fail again.

Let me know how you get on ok.

or if you need further assistance ok
