It's nearly impossible unless you have a good air compressor and a powerful 1/2" or larger drive impact gun.The reason is you have to remove the cv axle nut and axle out of the way before removing the bearing and hub.The axle nut requires a couple hundred foot pounds to remove.The procedure is:Jack vehicle safely off the ground,remove wheel and tire.Remove axle retaining nut.Remove balljoint nut and bolt,pry down on lower control arm,and disengage balljoint and lower arm from spindle.Now the axle can be released from the hub,but leave the other end of the axle in the trans,just set off to the side out of the way.At this point,there are two ways to change the bearing.The wheel bearing is a double roller,cartridge type with the hub containg the wheel studs,pressed into the bearing.Remove the entire spindle assembly from the suspension strut,OR leave the spindle attached to the strut,and remove the bearing and hub from the spindle.Some guys swear by taking the spindle to a press,and pressing the bearing assembly out with a bottle jack.I just use a bushing driver set,and ball peen hammer,and remove the hub from the bearing...then remove the snap ring retaing the bearing in the spindle,then drive the bearing out of the spindle with the hammer and drivers.There you have it.Reverse procedure for reassembly

remove hub ,take retaining circlip out and knock it out with a big big hammer supporting it on an old wheel rim and a tree trunk.this job is easy to do but unless you have the right tools entrust it to a garage who will have a nice press .

not press fitted, standard tapered bearings, if 4X4 it is a little more involved, just dont misplace any of the smaller parts and you will be fine.

Replaced right front wheel bearing on my 2003 ford explorer 4x4 and when i drive it it seems like it is rocking or shaking do you know what the problem might be I did buy the wheel bearing at a junk yard


Hello,
The problem could be a siezed C.V. joint on the front axle. If it doesn't flex as your driving the stiffness will be transmitted into the drivetrain. Hope this helps.

I have a 99 ford explorer and there is a grinding sound that is coming from the passenger side that is constant when i drive and it isn't the brakes


4x4 ? how many miles ? jack front wheels off ground and rotate by hand feel for the grind, bad wheel hub bearing? check brake rotor dust shields, If high miles possibly front carrier or pinion bearing. Just replaced front , rear , and transfercase bearings on my 98 with 193,000 mi. And yes,they were all bad $500.00 did labor myself. did rear first as it was humming, week later grind and hum coming from front, then couple days later transfer case was also whinning,humming, good god what a project all that was but today its great and quiet.

How to replace wheel bearing on 1996 ford explorer


Is it a 2 wheel drive of 4 wheel drive explorer?? I'm going to take a shot in the dark and go with 4x4. Remove the cotter pin and axle nut. Then jack up and brace the vehicle. Remove the front tire (since you said wheel bearing and not axle bearing), caliper, caliper bracket, and the three bolts on the back of the spindle that hold in the bearing and hub. Slide the hub and bearing out. May take a couple of taps with a hammer.

How do replace front axle bearings on a 92 jeep


You have to pull off the wheel, brake assembly, and rotor. If it is a 4x4, i suggest you take it to a mechanic. If it isn't, once you pull all that off you will see a little cap cover. take a small screwdriver and pop off the cap. There will be a clip. pull off the clip and pull out the axle bearing. Make sure you grease the axle bearings before you put the new one in. Then put it back together in the reverse of these instructions. Hope this helps.
