The complete Knuckle has to be removed from the car. The bearing is pressed out and in. If you dont have a press, you will have to take it to an auto parts store with a machine shop. The bearing is siezed and you cannot bang it out. I have been there! Make sure you give them the hub, thats pressed in too.

How do u remove hubs on a 1992 Isuzu big horn


TO DO WHAT? not even the smallest hint on job or failure.>?
USA?
hubs, the rears have hubs to with disc brake option.rotor hubs.
I guess front hubs?.
guess 2, wheel bearing hubs, and not 4wd axle locking hub units.
doing what?
brakes, wheel bearings, axle damage. 4wd axle bearings what?
the pages are 2wd pages, and 4 wd pages, which is yours?
is this your first time DIY ever. ? or first time 4wd?
guess 3, 4wd, how am I guessing....


names
Acura SLX
Chevrolet Trooper
Isuzu Bighorn
Holden Jackaroo
Holden Monterey
Honda Horizon
HSV Jackaroo
Opel Monterey
Subaru Bighorn
Vauxhall Monterey
wow......
our usa book lists it as trooper only.
so ...

just B or B then A off? if you had b off, you'd see what?, a big nut.
that is locked to spindle shaft.
ill guess? wheel bearings are bad? (just in hub not spindle bearings bad... no matter this is first.)
so you do what. ? here are the steps.

that part"B" must be off first, see the bolts holding it, ?
B = auto locking hubs. or hub axle lockers.
26005769-b5pjo3cin0lhc1b54v4xlnuy-4-0.jpg you can see the caliber must come off, so, do so and tie them up.
  1. "Place the Transfer shift in the 2H position.
  2. Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely on jackstands. (rear tires chocked, and hand brake set hard)
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Loosen the hub to rotor retainer bolts.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts and carefully remove the caliper (along with the brake pads) from the rotor. Do not disconnect the brake line. Secure the caliper out of the way with the flexible line still connected.
  6. Remove the hub nut using hub wrench J-29020-A or equivalent. ( special tool)
  7. Remove the hub cap assembly retainer bolts. Remove the spindle nut, washers, and other components. Remove the hub/rotor, being careful not to drop the outer wheel bearings. As the hub/rotor is pulled forward, the outer wheel bearings will often fall forward.
  8. Once the hub/rotor is removed, remove the retainer bolts securing the rotor and hub together. Inspect the hub and replace if needed."
  9. end removal. install is next... (alldata.com covers this)

How to replace front passenger wheel hub on 1991 lincoln continental


This is not a bolt on hub but rather a press on hub, the wheel bearing will need replacing also, remove wheel, remove the caliper and hang off to side, next remove the brake rotor, next is to remove the axle nut. a matter of fact you without power tools should do this first,before even removing the wheel use a big rachet and pipe for leverage, remove the axle nut first. with axle nut removed,brake caliper hanging off to side and rotor off. next you will discconnect tierod from spindle and remove nut from lower ball joint, sperate balljoint from spindle. next remove bolts from strut to spindle. note if you have abs make sure to dissconnect wire before trying to remove spindle, with strut bolts out remove spindle. at this point i wouls say a press is needed, take to your local shop and ask them to replace the hub. heres a picture of the hub asm. hope this helps you. good day.2_20_2012_12_26_43_am.jpg

How do i change the front wheel bearrings on a 1999 sonoma 2 wheel drive?


The bearing is in the hub.. Here are some instructions for that:
  • The wheel bearing is installed in the wheel hub assembly and is serviced by replacement only.

  • You may need Torx sockets to remove the bearing assembly bolts.


  • Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely using jackstands.

    Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

  • At the wheel hub, remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the castle nut and the thrust washer. In order to hold the hub from turning when loosening the nut, insert a drift through the caliper and into the rotor vanes. Remove the brake caliper and support it aside using wire or a coat hanger. Make sure the brake line is not stretched or damaged.

  • Remove the brake rotor from the wheel hub.

  • Remove the bolts retaining the hub/bearing assembly to the knuckle, then carefully pull the assembly from the splined end of the halfshaft. If available, use J-28733-A or B, or an equivalent spindle remover to prevent damage to the shaft or hub/bearing assembly.


  • Remove the cotter pin from the drive axle end nut and retainer


    Remove the retainer for access to the end nut


    Loosen the drive axle nut-here the caliper is installed so a drift could be inserted to keep the disc from spinning

    Right front wheel bearing is bad how do I change it


    1. Raise and support the vehicle safely. Place jackstands under the frame, then lower the vehicle slightly to allow the control arms to hang free.
    2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
    3. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning, then remove the hub/drive axle nut. Clean the threads of the nut.
      1. Unfasten the caliper mounting bolts, then remove and support the caliper aside with a suitable piece of wire.
      2. Remove the rotor by sliding it from the hub.
      3. If equipped with ABS, detach the front wheel speed sensor connector and unclip it from the dust shield.

      The hub and bearing are replaced only as an assembly.
      For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
    4. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub from the halfshaft.
    5. Remove the hub and bearing retaining bolts, shield, hub and bearing assembly and the O-ring.
    6. Separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle, using the proper tool.
    7. Remove the halfshaft assembly and tap the seal from the steering knuckle. Remove the steering knuckle from the hub.
    8. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
      1. Unfasten the hub and bearing retaining bolts and dust shield.
      2. Place the transaxle in PARK.
      3. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub and bearing from the drive axle.
      4. If necessary, remove the steering knuckle.

    9. Clean the rust and foreign material from the knuckle mounting face, bore and chamfer to allow the bearing to properly seat in the knuckle.
    To install:
    1. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
      1. If removed, install the steering knuckle.
      2. Position the hub and bearing assembly to the drive axle. Apply a light coating of grease to the knuckle bore. If the new hub and bearing has a protective plastic cover, remove it before installation. Also, do not handle the knuckle or hub assembly by the ABS sensor wire.
      3. Install a new drive axle nut and draw the hub and bearing onto the axle.
      4. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
      5. Install the dust shield, being careful not to damage the bearing outboard lip seal.
      6. Install the hub and bearing bolts, then tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

    2. For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
      1. Install a new hub and bearing seal in the steering knuckle with a suitable seal installation tool. Install the steering knuckle to the strut.
      2. Lubricate the hub and bearing with grease. Fill the cavity between the seal and bearing completely.
      3. Install the halfshaft.
      4. Connect the ball joint to the steering knuckle and insert a new O-ring around the hub and bearing assembly.
      5. Install the hub and bearing, and shield into the steering knuckle. Tighten the bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (90 Nm).

    3. If equipped, attach the ABS front wheel speed sensor connector, then clip the wire to the dust shield.
    1. Install the rotor and caliper assembly. Tighten the caliper bolts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm).
    2. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning. If not already done, install the shaft washer and nut (if equipped). Tighten the nut to the following specifications:
    3. 1987-88 vehicles: 3 ft. lbs. (270 Nm).
    4. 1989-90 vehicles: 15 ft. lbs. (260 Nm).

    1. Remove and discard three hub and bearing retainer bolts from front wheel knuckle .
    1. NOTE: Wheel hub is not pressed into front wheel knuckle . Do not use slide hammer to remove a stuck wheel hub . Do not strike back of inner bearing race. Use of these methods will damage bearing internal parts.

      NOTE: If bearing carrier is corroded to front wheel knuckle , apply Rust Penetrant and Inhibitor D7AZ-19A501-AA or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M99C56-A to the inboard and outboard wheel hub/knuckle mating surface and allow to soak.

      Remove wheel hub from front wheel knuckle .
