I pound mine into place put them in vice and pound with hammer and screwdriver or something. otherwise you need to take them into a shop and have them done. unless you have the kind that dont need to be pressed where you just replace the whole thing.

1993 Mitsubishi Diamante. To replace inner wheel bearings. You need to remove the wheel, caliber and bracket, rotor, and hub correct? The wheel bearings are on the inside of the hub correct?

Yes. You have to press the bearing out. If you don't have the press tools. Best to take spindle to a shop and have them press the new one in. Don't know of renting the press tools. Don't forget to torque the axle nut.

Front wheel bearing do you realy need to press the bearing out or can you just tap it out with hamer and bar

Wheel bearings are pretty easy to spot if they are done. All you need is listen to where it's humming as you accelerate faster (it gets louder). Now to remove them you either have to remove the wheel bearing assembly housing and press it with a traditional bench press or something like this which does not involve in removing the housing (on car removal). 22fb2c0.jpg
Both would cost money to purchase unless you are a shop though you wouldn't be asking this question. Using a hammer could work but give yourself a whole week trying to get it out or should I say good luck trying too. They are pressed in and the same follows to remove them. Unlike old style 2 pc bearings which come off easily by pulling them out together with the hub and also serviceable (re-greased). Sealed bearings are damaged once it is take off the hub and thrown away or used as paper weight. You may or may not require a wheel alignment depending how the tech did his homework regarding this area. If he is the kind that just rips off everything, not taking account where he could save time, then you'll probably need an alignment for sure. All in all if your worry is how to get it out, you have option of buying them installed in a new wheel bearing housing the a new hub pressed in as well and all you do is to remove the old housing and install the new one at a higher cost. Hey, so what if you can afford it, it would be easier to replace without the hassle of expensive tools. Make sure you follow tightening procedure for the center nut torque procedure or you'll end up breaking the bearing again. Never roll the car on it's wheels without a CV joint in the bearing, you'll crush the bearing and need a new one again.

I need to replace the right front wheel bearing on a 96 saturn sc1 any advice

The easiest way is to buy the knuckle and front hub together. It is more expensive but unless you have access to a press to press the knuckle from the hub and then press a new bearing in it will be impossible to replace.

Also like any wheel bearing job, change in pairs not just one. So change both front wheels because if one is going then the other is not far behind.

Good luck!

I need to change right front wheel bearing on 96 honda accord

It's not a easy job you will need a press to take the old one out and replace the new one, my advice to you is take the steering knockle out and have your local shop press the bearing out for you and put the new one in. This way you just have to bolt everything back up and your good to go.

Wheel bearing

The front 'hub' bearing is 'pressed' out. You have to remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle and using a hydraulic press, replace the bearing by pressing out the old one and then pressing in the new one.

Replace front wheel bearings

The bearings in your car are pressed into a hub. If the part is available as an assembly, it can be replaced that way. Generally on a front drive car:
Remove wheels and brake calipers
If it is pressed in: remove the rotors, disconnect the drive shafts and remove the steering knuckle. Then the old bearing is pressed out and the new one pressed in with a machine shop press. If the bearing is part of the hub, that will be unbolted and the new one swapped.

On a scale of 1-10 difficulty, Id rate it a strong 7
