2003 durango front wheel bearing dont grease?


You don't repack these bearings. If there new they should be fine. Only thing I can think of is the person who installed those bearings did not torque them properly.

Will 1992 miata side mirrors fit exactly on a 1996 miata


The above is a good explanation of accessing the mirror but to answer your question directly, yes, they will fit. All the 90-97 mirrors are interchangeable with the exception of installing later power mirrors onto a 90-91 Miata where it wasn't a factory option. They will mount up fine but do require enlarging the center hole where the wires need to run.

I have a 2003 Vue...and the ABS light will not turn off...is it safe to drive until I can get it fixed?


If ABS light is on,you still have base brakes,just like an older vehicle with no ABS.Not a problem,as a matter of fact I always disable the ABS on my vehicles because I don't like it.

Shifter works when car is off, start car and then shifter won't go in gear. if i start vehicle in first with clutch pedal to floor, car starts going forward. mazda miata mx-5 just put new slave cylinder in...


The one item I would suspect is the through-out-bearing not completely disengaging the pressure plate from the fly wheel. If the vehicle is in neutral and you slowly depress the clutch and release it do hear a singing or whining sound? Since you cannot adjust the clutch any more the through-out-bearing is the component which moves the pressure plate from the fly wheel to stop the power from the engine to the transmission. It is difficult to shift when the engine is on because the fly wheel is still engaged and powering your transmission.

Yes you most likely have a bad throw out bearing. If you replace the bearing you would do yourself a favor and replace the clutch and pressure plate while you are there.

Rear axle seal leaking how difficult would this be to fix


Not that difficult, raise and support the rear of the truck and remove the wheels. Might as well replace both sides so you know you have new seals, remove the differential cover and drain the fluid. Once differential is opened and cleaned , remove the axle "C" clip that hold the axle in place and slide the axle out. Once the axle is out remove the wheel seal and clean around the area. This would be a good time to replace the wheel bearing too since you have access to them and there not that expensive. Install the new bearing and seal, note make sure you oiled the bearing and seal before installing it back and take care when installing the axle back in and "C: clip. Use RTV silicon gasket maker to seal the differential cover and wheels back on and lower. If your lazy like i am, you can drain the differential fluid and replace it with a 50/50 mix with gear oil and Lucas engine oil additives. That may stop the leak and get you a few more miles. You gear oil is 75W-90 and the capacity is 2.6 liters and 3.6 liters if you have the 11.50 Ring gear. Good luck and hope this helps.

MX5 Front Wheel Bearing


Easy fix. Remove the wheel, remove caliper and caliper bracket. Remove brake disc. Pry off hub dust cap. This can be difficult and sometimes the cap cannot be reused. They are inexpensive, however. The hubs are not rebuildable and must be replaced. Undo the large hub nut, remove old unit, replace, reinstall nut, crimp the detent at slot in spindle. (use a punch) Nut torque is #125 ft. pounds to 160. Reinstall cap, caliper bracket, etc.
