F150, 4x4, 2005, Replace front wheel brgs.

there are no trick to this, they bolt right up, no press needed, the only tool is a snap ring pliers or just use a couple of picks,heres a diagram of the bearing, also if this truck has vacuum operated 4wd,take caution to remove the three bolts holding diapharm on rear of hub, also dissconect abs sensor,new bearing should come with new sensor,here are a couple of pictures to help.if you have 4wd with vacuum operation check the diaphram whil doing hub baering just hook vac pump to connection then apply vacuum and it will move in and should hold, if 4wd works fine then dont worry about that then, hope this helps,ddc32b1.gif8773598.gif5513d51.gif

1993 F150 4x4 w/ auto locking hubs - rotor removal

There are some special 4 tooth and hex sockets for removing the nuts inside the hubs of the truck.
YOu can find these at NAPA or maybe AutoZone or Advance. I would go to NAPA because they more than likely have it and also know something about repairing this assembly.
Ford uses Dana front end parts and NAPA has original Dana parts in stock... so it is as good as or better than original and they would have the tool for it.
Be careful and follow the procedure exactly for putting the front hubs back together.
And trust me... many of the idiots working in repair garages do not know how to do these older 4x4 hubs either... ask someone and read the books for the right procedure... some of the older mechanics may show you how to do it. Ask

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground.
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

Replacing fuel filter. How do you remove the fuel line from the filter on a 1994 ford f150 ext. cab 5.0 ltre.

There is a special tool that is required to take off the filter. You can purchase the tool at your local auto parts store. There is a metal one or you can buy a set of plastic ones that are supposed to work better. It is very difficult to change as the

line sometimes gets dust or dirt in it making

it really hard to get the tool in .

stop by a auto parts store and look at the brg assembly .
that will give you a good idea.
