2007 toyota tacoma replace front wheel bearing prerunner

The other guys have never taken the wheel bearings out of a 2007 Tacoma! Remove the tire (duh)
Remove the 12mm bolt holding the brake line securing bracket
Un-clip the air sensor hose clip
Remove the two 17mm bolts holding the brake assembly on the back side
Remove the rotor from the wheel "spindle"- slides right off.
Unscrew the four metric bolts (maybe 17mm) holding the wheel housing to its mount (they cannot be removed from the assembly yet, see below).
That's right there is no normal wheel spindle with a big nut on the end of a threaded shaft in the middle!
The wheel mounting plate (with the 6 studs) is pressed into the bearing housing.
Get a replacement bearing assembly and take it and your old unit to a machine shop (unless you have a good press).
An easy job, just expensive- $140 for the bearing assembly.

What is differnece between bearing and hub bearing assembly for car ? i ordered hub bearing assembly instead of bearing is it big problem ? or i can still use this part ?

YES. The bearing can quite often be purchased separately, Its simply a bearing for the front spindle, but hard to replace, needing to be pressed out. A hub and bearing assembly come together already as an assembly and much easier to install. If you just order a bearing you still must remove the old hub (thats the parts that contains the wheel studs which holds the tire on, the bearing goes on around the center of it, then is held in the spindle). It may cost a little more for the hub and bearing assembly but well worth the aggravation. A lot of vehicles it only comes as an assembly.

How hard is it to change out both front wheel bearings

Not that hard, you will need to remove the brake calipers and rotors. The hardest part is getting the proper size socket to take the axle nut off the spindle if its 4WD. If 2WD they just bolt on from the back of the spindle (4 bolts), and electrical connector for the ABS. Leave the ball joints and tie rods connected.

How do you remove big nut on rear wheel bearing for a 1998 toyota camary LE

You need to go to Autozone and get yourself what is called the "axle nut socket". Since this car is front wheel drive, you'll need to loosen the nut while the car is still on the ground. Once loosened, jack the car up and proceed with changing the bearing/hub.

How do you adjust 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee front wheel bearings?

1) Jack up the front of the truck ( or the affected side).
2) Remove the wheel.
3) Remove the brake caliper, pads, and rotor.
4) Remove the axle nut. I use a 36mm socket.
5) Remove the three hub bolts (from the back of the spindle) ea.:
5a) You will need a 1/2 12 point inch ratcheting box wrench and larger
box wrench as I use or a 1/2 inch 12 pt. socket and ratchet with
long handle for rich folks who can afford such luxuries.
5b) Force the bolt to loosen 1/4 turn, then retighten. Spray the threads
with penetrating oil, then loosen as far as it will go (not much) easily.
Now curse about Mopar and rust. Ask a sailor for help if needed. Wire wheel or
5c) Go to 5b) until the bolt is out.
6) Use a sharp chisel and hammer to draw the hub bearing out of the spindle. Try not to use the chisel near the bolt holes.
7) Use a sanding disc remove any burrs from the hub mating surface of
the spindle.
8) Use wheel bearing greasre or moly grease to coat the splines of the
axle, the big hole in the spindle, and the threads of the bolts.
9) Put it all together.
10) If you got lazy and didn't do step #7, get a wheel alignment, then
drive for about 5k miles, repeat steps 1-9, then get a wheel
alignment again.
