SOURCE: how to replace front wheel

I can tell you on a 93 Altima that you have remove the entire wheel knuckle and press it out from the rear. Yeah, the knuckle, remove the strut tower bolts, drive train ( which can be lighty pressed out ), caliper and bracket, and remove the ball joint. There's a snap ring at the back of the wheel knuckle that holds the bearing, then press it out with a socket and a table vice or something to that effect. By the way the going commercial rate if you take it to a shop and have them do it starts at $150 for labor. Worth it, oh yeah.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Is it hard to replace the front wheel bearing hub

Its a big pain. The hub is rusted on tight and has to be beaten off with a mini sledge. Go to your local AP store and look it up in a repair manual to see what you are in for.

How do remove the centre hub from a 1996 nissan terrano. im trying replace the brake rotors


Take the wheel off. then the grease cap. There will be a keeper that has 2 screws, take those out, then remove the keeper. You will see another keeper, but this one is actually a nut. There are two round holes on the keeper, take a punch, or a common screwdriver, and a hammer and tap it off. If will spin. Make sure that you keep these parts free of dirt, as the wheel bearing will pick it up and ruin it. Once you have these removed, then the wheel assembly will slide right off. When you are installing them make sure that you have seated the wheel unit on before you thread the nut on. Tighten the nut as far as you can using a screwdriver to spin it on, and then tap it tight with the screwdriver and hammer, make sure that you do not get it too tight, or you will cause the bearing to wear prematurely.

1995 nissan terrano 2.7 turbo diesel 4wd. just wonding what will be causing the clicking sound while turning?i have replaced the wheel bearings,thort that will be the problem but not so.the 4wd is not...


It could be the front cv joints even when the 4wd is not engaged. The wheels are set up like a front wheel driven car, so they have half shafts that go into your transfer case. Have a look at the cv boots, and see if its leaking grease, but then again, the mechanic who replaced your wheel bearings would have noticed something wrong.
If not that, and if it clicks when you are truning the steering wheel, the rack and pinion has lost its fluid. Might wanna check the boots on the tie rods and see if they are leaking fluid.

C V Boots


hi mate i dont no if this is the same case but i have found that when the boots on cv joints are perished or missing that is an indication that the roller bearings inside are worn enough to be replaced the boots are designed to keep bearings lubricated and free of dirt once there is cracks in the boot grease comes out dirt gets in and they wear out very quickly and need to be replaced replacement is easy jack up car put safety stands under bolt off bolts on simple but be shore to replace bolts with new they are usually quite stressed
