Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I got an estimated $700.00 to replace my 1998 ford explorer hub assembly. I bought the parts for $123.00 and would like to do it myself. How do you take out the hub for this vehicle. I know how to take out the caliper as I just installed new brake pads.
Well if it does not have vacuum hubs it is easy. Take caliper off at the bracket bolts no need to take the slide pins off. Remove axle nut, tap end of shaft with hammer to see if it moves. If you cant get it to move stop take it to a garage and pay the 1.5 hours for them to do it. If it moves remove the 3 bolts on the inside of the knuckle that hold the bearing to it. Its easier to get both wheels off the ground so you can turn the stuff to get better access to the 3 bolts and then pound the hub off the knuckle. oops forgot about the abs wire but that should be pretty easy also. Torque axle nut to like 175-200 ft lbs actuall look up that spec. I just pulled that out of my arse. By the way where do you live ?I want to get a job at that garage that gets 700 for a bearing installed!
