SOURCE: I need instructions on how to replace rear wheel bearings on my 1994 Honda Civic

Bearings are pressed into the hubs...much easier, faster and economical (if you don't have a press) to replace the complete bearing/hub assembly, no pressing is needed, since bearings are already pressed into the new hubs. Cost..aprox, 60 buxs each.
Here are the steps for the rear replacement...
Loosen the lug nuts on a rear wheel. 2) Chock the wheels and jack the rear of the car on the side with the lug nuts that you just loosened. 3) Remove the wheel by removing the lug nuts. 4) Pry open the dust cap covering the center of the axle/spindle. A small screwdriver tapped into the space between the hub and dust cap will work well for this. 5) With the dust cap now removed, use a thin center punch to straighten the little dent in the rim of the spindle nut so that you will be able to turn it freely in the next step. 6) Use a 32mm socket and a large breaker-bar to loosen the spindle nut. Unscrew the nut all the way and place it in a clean, safe area. 7) You should now be able to slide the hub/bearing assembly from the shaft. 8) Installation is the reverse of removal. Use plenty of high-temperature wheel bearing grease on all surfaces before you mount the replacement hub assembly.

IMPORTANT: Torque the spindle nut to 134 ft/lbs....(per manual specs)

When reinstalling the dust caps, tap them gently into place to avoid denting them...Install wheels, jack her down and pat yourself on the back...job complete.
Good luck..hope this will fixya up...please take time to leave me a fixya rateing...

SOURCE: rear brake caliper on honda civic 5 door

While replacing REAR CALIPERS Park Brake Should NOT BE APPLIED Until Completely DONE with PROCEDURE,Nor Should it be Released During Procedure. As isogeorge Said Your Problem MAY Be in the Adjustment of the PARK BRAKE CABLE, Requiring removal of Rubber BOOT @ HANDBRAKE and Tightening or Loosening of Cable whichever you deem Appropriate. In My Thoughts it is too tight thus Engaging PARK BRAKE SWITCH turning ON LIGHT. PLEASE Feel FREE to Refer Back to Me For ANY Assistance with this Problem, Hope this Gets you on the right Track and Solves your Problem.

your suspension, or a bent rim,or a bubble, where your tire is separating. jack your car up, put a jack stand under it, spin your tire, watch for wobble(this will tell you,if its your wheel, or tire. while in the air grab the front and rear of tire pull, and push oppisites, then do the same with the top and bottom, there should be no play. if there is, its your suspension.

Wobble while driving. After inspecting saw that the right front boot on the axle was weather cracked, assuming no more grease inside, what parts do I need to replace?


A CV boot will generally not cause a wobble. If the boot is not cracked open there is plenty of grease inside. If the boot was leaking grease you would see it slung all over the back side of the knuckle, brake caliper, and inside of the wheel.

If the steering wheel is moving back and forth at slow speeds the first thing I would check for is a separated tire or a bent wheel. If you feel the tread of the tire it should feel smooth all the way around. If there is a high spot or bump it is separated.

The easiest thing to do is have the tires balanced. Tell them you are getting a wobble in the steering wheel. They will inspect the front tires closely and if they find an issue have them show you what they found.

Does my car need an alignment? On freeway, my car ''drifts'' (not pulls) and feels like I'm driving on ice. I'm always correcting my steering.


If your wheels are bad enough, they can wobble and cause what you're experiencing. The should be uneven wear on your tires as well.
