Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor

Open Question

Is a rear wheel bearing difficult to replace on '04 Endeavor AWD? (I have generic pullers, slide hammer, etc.). Same question regarding difficulty of replacing rear trailing arm bushings? I have not inspected the vehicle for these faults but those two items have been diagnosed as needing r&r. Daughter bringing the vehicle to me for a few days visit and that is when I plan to do the work. Thanks for any info!

    I'm having trouble finding any literature on that car, but from what I have seen, it appears that the bearing hub assembly unbolts from its attachment rather than axle removal needed (awd version). Is that not the case? Thanks.

    Okay, yeah, if it's just front wheel drive it won't be bad at all.

    The wheel bearing isn't terribly difficult. but you know you have to pull the axle, right?

SOURCE: How or where do I find info to replace front wheel bearings

Timken bearing assembly is what you need. They actually make this all sound so difficult but let me tell you how I just did the same job on my Murano 06 AWD that uses the same type of assembly.
Remove the axle bolt then the wheel, caliper & bracket to remove the rotor. Support the caliper by hanging it from the the strut spring. From the back side, you should be able to remove the speed sensor and if on that model the bolts come froom the back side, there should be just enough room to remove them. that is what holds the hub assembly in place, these aren't pressed into the vehicle, just mounted. I used an axle puller to remove the hub assembly once all of he bolts were loose & it wasn't necessary to remove the ball joint or axle. You need to push the axle through the hub assy & there is a rental tool you can get for that. There was not any excessive pulling to remove the assembly, just tap, tap, tap & it was free, ready for the other to be installed. There is the possibility that you would have to drop the lower ball joint & tie rod end to get access but I didn't have that problem & I looked at your bearing, it looks identical. Good luck.

first thing you have to do is remove the big nut on the driveaxle and then remove the spindle by getting the caliper and rotor out of the way and then have the bearing press off and on to the spindle

Try a salvage yard rather than a parts store on the 1990 Honda CRX.

How to replace rear axel wheel bearings on 97 ford explored


You will need an internal bearing puller. You will have to remove the rear axle by pulling off the differential cover. Then remove the bolt holding the spider gear cross shaft in place. Remove the shaft and spider gears. If your tire is already removed and brake drum is off, push in the axle and remove the circle clip. Once this is out you can slide your axle out you can remove the backing plate for your brakes and get to the bearing. Pull the seal out and pull out the bearing with a puller and slide hammer. Install the new bearing by hitting on the outside race ONLY. Install a new seal and install in reverse order.

How do you change the rear wheel bearings on a 2004 chevy express 1500 van?


Axle Shaft Bearing & Seal Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the axle shaft.
  3. If replacing only the seal, remove the seal using a suitable seal removal tool.
  4. If replacing the seal and bearing on the 8.6 inch axle, install the slide hammer and adapter behind the bearing and pull out the bearing and seal together.
  5. If replacing the rear axle shaft seal and the bearing on the 9.75 inch axle, install the J 29712 or equivalent bearing puller into the axle housing behind the axle bearing.
  6. Remove the axle shaft seal and the bearing by tightening the nut on the J 29712 bearing puller.

To Install:

  2. Lubricate the seal lip and install the seal with a suitable seal driver. Make sure the seal is fully seated in the axle tube.
  3. Install the axle shaft.
  4. Fill the rear axle with the correct lubricant.

Removing rear wheel bearings


I'm assuming this is not awd. Remove wheel, Brake drum. Remove 4 attaching bolts from the inside, Remove the wheel speed sensor, A slide hammer with a wheel flange works best as these don't like to come out. Using rust penetrant may help. If you are replacing bearings and not reusing, a hammer may help you. You may need to remove upper brake springs, and pull shoes apart slightly for clearance.

How do I replace the rear wheel bearing in a 2000 chevy blazer


I am sorry to tell you this, but you will have to take the Truck to a Rear End repair shop to do this. If you are very mechanically inclined and have all the specific tools like a slide hammer, bearing puller, bearing installation tool, etc. If you have tools like this, then I would get yourself the car manual. To replace the bearings you will have to remove the axles.

Rear Wheel Bearing Repair; 2005 pontiac aztek


Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.
