How do you remove a rear hub on a 04 kia sedona?


Call Kia with your VIN to make sure yours wasn't affected by the recall. You may be able to have that rear bearing replaced for free at Kia.

HUBCAP & OUTER BEARING REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE: 1. Remove the two (2) cross-tip locating screws on the brake drum.

2. Remove the brake drum.

3. Remove cotter pin and cover set.

4. Remove nut, claw washer, outer bearing and hub assembly.

5. Inspect inner bearing area in both hubs for any sign of moisture, corrosion, grease discoloration or contamination. If "yes" discard entire hub and replace with new assembly. If "no" proceed with outer bearing replacement below: 6. Carefully remove the outer bearing race from the hub. If the hub assembly is damaged then replace the hub assembly as a complete unit. (If inner seal is damaged while removing the outer race replace with new seal.)

7. Clean all contaminated grease from outer bearing cavity of the hub.

8. Install a new outer race into the hub using an appropriate race installation tool.

9. Apply grease MS511-33 WBG2 or equivalent to the hub assembly and the new bearing(s) especially to the shaded areas.

10. Install hub assembly, new pre-greased outer bearing and new claw washer on spindle. (Or alternatively, install entire new hub assembly, as supplied). Ensure bearings are properly seated then tighten hub/spindle nut, torque nut to 20-25 lb-ft (27-33 Nm.) Verify hub spins freely without signs of binding or excessive play.

11. Install new cover set and cotter pin; never reuse the old cotter pin.

12. Install new hub cap with Loctite # 5910(TM) or equivalent sealant to prevent moisture intrusion.

13. Install the rear brake drum using tapered locating screws.

14. Install rear wheels and torque lug nuts to proper specification. (65-79 lb-ft) (88-108 Nm, 9-11 kgm)

15. Lower vehicle.

How to change a front wheel bearing on a 2007 toyota tacoma 2 wheel drive pickup truck


The bearing & hub is a whole assembly for this model, start by removing the brake calipers, the removing the rotors" a couple taps with the hammer should loosen it" , after removing the rotors the hub & bearing assembly is held on by 4 #17 bolts, after you get the hud and bearing assembly off you will need a tool called a bearing split plate ,to split the hub and bearing off each other. Now you should have the new bearing assembly ,inner wheel seal, and hub set together" this is when you need a press". Press the hub onto the new bearing assembly.And thats it! Its ready to go back on the way you took it off.

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 long does it take to fix front bearings on a 97 dodge caravan? and cost


About an hour a side...This is the whole job and pictures....

The hub and wheel bearing unit is serviced as a complete assembly. Replacement of the front drive hub and bearing assembly can be done without having to remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle. However, if the hub/bearing assembly is frozen to the steering knuckle, removal of the steering knuckle is required.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the cotter pin from the end of the stub axle. Remove the nut lock and spring washer. With the brakes applied, loosen, but do NOT remove the axle nut and washer with the vehicle still on the ground or damage to the wheel bearing will result.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the wheel.
  4. Remove the front brake caliper assembly from the steering knuckle assembly and support from the strut assembly using a strong piece of wire.
    1. Remove the front brake rotor from the hub/bearing assembly.
    2. Remove the retaining nut and washer from the halfshaft stub axle.
    3. Remove the ABS wheel speed sensor from the steering knuckle.
    4. Remove the 4 hub and bearing assembly mounting bolts from behind the steering knuckle.
    5. Remove the hub and bearing assembly from the steering knuckle.
  5. To install:
    1. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the steering knuckle and the hub and bearing assembly of any foreign material or nicks so the surfaces are clean and smooth.
    2. Install the new hub and bearing assembly and tighten the mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern to 45 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Be sure the hub and bearing assembly is seated squarely against the front steering knuckle.
    3. Install the disc brake rotor.
    4. Install the brake caliper assembly onto the steering knuckle.
    5. Install the axle washer and nut. Tighten but do not torque.
    6. Install the ABS wheel speed sensor.
    7. Install the wheel and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in sequence, to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm).
    8. Lower the vehicle. Do NOT roll the vehicle until the axle nut has been properly torqued or damage to the front wheel bearings will result.
    9. With the vehicle's brakes applied, torque the axle nut to 180 ft. lbs. (244 Nm). Install the spring washer, nut lock and a new cotter pin. Wrap the cotter pin prongs tightly around the axle nut lock.
    10. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Check the wheel alignment.
