Don't know if this will help, but everything has fit perfectly when dealing with cars, no gaps, I would say take it off and start again. Chances are something is not on quite right, try wiggling and turning, something might be in the way. Hope that helps

You really should have the Haynes manual for your make, year and model car, but I will try to help you. The center is called the short shaft and it should be exposed enough to give you enough threads to easily put the large washer on and have enough tread to be grabbed by the castle nut. Do not torque the nut down too far (the torque range is in the book!)

SOURCE: putting wheel bearings on vehicle

I discovered how to remove the front wheel bearings by phoning a FORD dealer after spending hours on sites like this getting nowhere ! The problem with removing said bearings from a front wheel drive 1990 Taurus and similar is the bearing must come out from the inside of the hub assy.After you have removed the retaining nut and the axle flange still won't budge, you must disconnect the lower steering link {ball joint} and pull the entire drive shaft out of the center of the hub.Underneath the seal for the existing bearing there is a retaining clip that holds in the bearing.If you sand the bore where bearing goes back it should be able to get back in without too much fight.

  • Here is how to test your ball joints and tire rod end to see if they need replaced. Esay teat, very reliable.
  • First jack that wheel off the ground.
  • Put one hand on 3 and one hand on 9 (O'Clock) and try to wiggle the tire from side to side. If you get movement then your tire rod end (middle ball joint) need replaced.
  • Now put one hand at 12 and the other hand at 6 (O'Clock) and move the tire in an up and down motion. Any play with the wheel with this motion indicates your lower ball joint needs replaced.
  • No put one hand at 2 and the other hand at 8 (O'Clock) and try to move it back and forth. Do the same at 11 and 5 (O'Clock). Any movement in either of them positions indicates a HUB or Wheel Bearings needing replace.
  • Make sure after you tightened that lower ball joint bolt up that you stick a cotter pin in the hole that goes through that bolt so that nut stays put.
  • I would hate to think someone installed shocks and did not do an inspection at the same time to see if any other repairs were needing done.
  • When the HUB goes bad it will vibrate and get louder as they wear and worsen getting to the point of almost deafening.

Replace front wheel bearing

The front wheel bearing for your Impala is an integrated wheel hub/bearing/ABS.
The whole thing gets replaced. It should look like the one off my Bonneville; Bearing.

Remove wheel/tire. Remove brakes. Remove rotor. Remove axle nut. Press-out axle shaft*. Unplug ABS connector. Remove 3 bearing bolts.

*To press out axle, you may need a special tool from an auto parts store.
Don't forget to put the heat sheild back on during reassembly, and the axle nut need to be very tight.


After Bearing/hub removed:

Wheel Bearing needs repair Front passenger side vibrating, pulling & humming. How difficult is this to do on my own?

You'll need to remove the wheel hub, seperate it from the strut and ball joint. Remove the brake caliper and tie rod end. Most likely you'll need to have the bearing pressed out by a machine shop.

How hard is it to replace the cv joints in the front axle of a 97 jeep cherokee laredo?

If you have never done this work before it is a 6 of 10. If you have any experience at all, it's about a 4.
Basic instructions are to remove the center cap from the wheel and put it back on the car. Put car on the ground. Use a socket fitted with a solid breaker bar (not jointed) and use a 5foot pipe over the bar to break the axle nut free. (remove cotter pin before putting wheel back on) Nut torque is 175lbs so expect it to be tight.
Remove the wheel, caliper and rotor, remove the three 12point bolts from behind the hub bearing bot not all the way. Use a socket you don't want and place it on one of the 12 point bolts and hit it with a large hammer.
Alternate position of the socket from one side to the other so the bearing is driven out straight. Once the bearing is free, fully remove the bolts and pull the axle through the bearing hole in the knuckle.
When replacing the axle keep the end from dragging along the bottom of the axle tube. If that happens you risk pushing the inner seal next to the carrier bearing out of the tube (lots more work to replace that)
Remainder of the job is just putting everything back together..

Bolts and nuts are off on wheel

It's somewhat involved. You have to remove the axel nut, remove the brake caliper and mount, and unbolt the wheel bearing housing flange, remove the wheel flange and wheel bearing. Next you must press out the the flange from the wheel bearing, and then you have access to press out the old bolts in the wheel flange. The new bolts must then be pressed back into the flange and then the flange back in the wheel bearing. I have seen some guys pound out the old bolt and then try to use the wheel nut to pull in the new one but the bolts never fully seat.
