Mazda mpv 2006 repack wheel bearing


There is a little difference between the front and rear. The days of packing wheel bearing is almost over. The front bearing you have to pull the hub and change to bearing. The rear wheel you have to change out the hub bearing and all. The front is a sealed bearing and not serviceable. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

What needs to be done to remove & repack wheel bearings? Left front is starting to make noise


Almost all newer cars the front wheel bearings are a sealed unit. There isn't a way to remove and repack like the old style bearings. More than likely if it gets too bad, you will need to replace the hub assembly.

My 4 wheel drive won't engage


Sportages uses a vacuum system to lock front hubs - turn the wheels all the way to one side, then look from behind the wheel on the side you are turning 'from" There should be a rubber hose from the vacuum fitting near the wheel opening from the engine compartment to the wheel itself. If these are damages or disconnected, the front axles will engage into 4wd but the hubs will not lock and the front wheels will not be driven by the axles.

How to check front bearings on 2000 kia sportage


hi there, there are two ways to check your bearings, 1, is to jack up the vehicle so the wheel is free of the ground and to check for any play or roughness in the bearing by spinning the wheel, if the bearing is worn then you will hear a droning noise, 2 is to drive along a quiet road, at a speed where you can hear the noise, gently turn the steering from left to right so the vehile load is being shifted from one side to the other, if you have a wheel bearing fault the noise's pitch will alter,hope this helps
