No on this model they are held in by a nut and cotter pin. You can remove them by hand.

How to replace front right wheel bearing

Front wheel drive?if so which i think it is you need to remove the whole hub assy then use a universal hub seperator to remove the bearing then press a new bearing in. some vehicles such as ford festiva need a special tool to adjust a shim thickness which is imperative. I would sugest you get a 2nd hand hub assy with a good bearing in it & just replace the whole assy :-)

Needs bearing assy on 1989 f150

It's a pretty straight forward job make sure you replace both the inner and outer wheel bearing and also make sure you replace the inner and outter bearing races located inside the brake rotor if you don't know or don't have the correct tools to replace the races then just but a new brake rotor will have the races already pressed in it. Make sure not to over tighten the outter nut that holds the rotor and bearing in place . the best way to tighten it is to tighten it all the way down with a wrench to seat the bearings then loosen it back up till you have play in the rotor and bearing again ... then while spinning the who;e rotor and bearing assembly with one hand turn the nut as tight as you can with your fingures and then install your nut retainer and cotter pin. Spin the whole brake rotor after installing the nut retainer and cotter pin to check for excessive play .You should do the other side also if one failed chances are the other will shortly.

I am trying to replace the wheel bearing on my 1998 ford windstar and i am having problems.

Which bearing? The front ones require a press or you can damage the new bearing and create a bigger issue. Remove the knuckle and take it to a machine shop with the new bearing. Press work will only take about 20 minutes and about $35.

Clunking noise near power rack when turning wheel back and forth

Inspect inner and Outter tie rod ends. This may be done with the wheels on or off. Have another person **** the sterring wheel L/R while nother person holds on to the rod ends. Feel for excess play or try shaking the steering rod, if its loose replace inner and outter rod ends.

How hard is to change front bearings and special tools??

No special tools, not hard, get the parts, rubber gloves, can of grease, and a couple hours time, turn off the cell fone. Pull the wheel, remove dust cover, pull cotter pin, remove brake caliper, hang from wire, remove nut on spindle, bump rotor with rubber mallet, the bearings should pop out, pull the hub off, knock out the inner seal and bearings, replace with new bearing packed with grease, replace seal, put hub back on, put on outer bearing, packed with grease, washer, nut, tighten up snug by hand, then back off so wheel spins free and doesn't rock, put in cotter pin, dust cover, caliper, tighten up, your all set. Too tight will burn up bearings, too loose and you will hear it rocking back and forth. Hope this helps.

I need to reploce the front left rotor on a 1996 ford econoline van. I need to know how to remove the bearings from the old one and put in the new one. Plesae help

Once you remove the center cap, remove the cotter pin, and remove the nut and washer, the outter bearing should slide right off. Remove that, and put the nut back on, then pull the rotor towards you, allowing the nut to touch the top of the inside of the rotor, until you catch the inner bearing on the nut, then give a ****, that should leave the bearing and seal left on the spindle. If not, you can use a seal remover, to get out the seal and the bearing will fall out of the rotor. Pack the new bearings and install the inner bearing, tap in the seal in the rotor, install rotor, install packed outer bearing and install.

Bad front wheel bearing , the reolacement bearing i got seems to be bigger than the bad one . does it press in from the back of the hub bracket holder ?

The issue with all bearing replacements it to NEVER install with load going across the bearing. What this means is if you are pressing in a bearing and the outside of the bearing is where the intefearance fit is, press only on the outside. Any presssing through the bearing will cause premature failure.

Packing front wheel bearings

what I do is put a glob of grease in the palm of my hand and push bearing down in to grease untill you see the grease come out of the bearing or you can go to your local parts store and get a bearing grease packer. also wipe spindal with a genorus glob and put grease in between bearing in rotor. To get to the bearings all you need to do is remove tire, center cap (outter grease seal) the silver cap in the center. the cotter pin, Nut, washer outter bearing then the rotor will slip off inner bearing is in rotor still being held in by inner grease seal take seal off replace with new one pack your bearings and reverse removal procedure when retightening nut do not make tight just snug the go another turn if you go to tight you will burn your bearings real fast.

How to replace front wheel bearing on a 1996 ford aerostar

You knock the seal and races out with a drift. You put the new races and seals in by using something round, like a socket, to drive them in. Of course, the experts will say you must have special seal drivers and bearing race drivers, but I've been fixing my Fords for 40 years and I have done several of these with what I had laying around.
