If its 2wd no dont do it. It even states on the nut its self but for more detail the nut has a nylon lineing in it the keep the nut where it should be each time you run that nut on and off it removes more of the nylon each time. this is why they include a new nut with each hub they sell
just to be clear i have just finished doing the right front hub on my 2000 dakota 2wd half an hour ago

How do iI remove the front wheel bearing?


The front wheel bearings on your Dodge Dakota allow the wheels to spin freely on the axle spindle. These sealed bearings may cause noise once they wear out, develop a pit on the races, bends and other damage that interfere with wheel performance. However, the front bearings form a single assembly with the wheel hubs and they should be replaced as a single unit. Fortunately, installing a new assembly is not a difficult process.

  1. Removing the Hub/Bearing Assembly
    • Before raising the front wheel(s), loosen the half shaft nut using an axle nut socket. Then remove the wheel/tire assembly and the half shaft nut. If your particular Dakota model comes equipped with an Anti-lock Bake System (ABS) sensor, remove the sensor form its bracket and move it aside.

      Now you are ready to remove the brake caliper and rotor. Make sure to secure the caliper to the coil spring using a piece of heavy wire. Do not let it hanging by the brake line to avoid damage to the brake hose attached to the caliper. With the caliper and rotor out of the way, you have access to the hub/bearing assembly mounting bolts.

      On some models, you can only access the hub/bearing mounting bolts through the holes in front of the hub/bearing assembly. Rotate the assembly by hand as you loosen and remove the mounting bolts. Once you remove the bolts, you can detach the hub/bearing from the steering knuckle and halfshaft. If the bearing assembly seems stuck to the halfshaft, use a 3 jaw gear puller to remove it.

Is changing the front wheel bearings a hard thing to do on a 2004 dodge dakota 4x4?


no it is not if you have a impact to take the hub nuts off, the rest is just removing brakes and the bolts that hold the hub assembly on.

Noise in front wheels of 97 dodge dakota


this is at least one bad wheel bearing, the bearing that is bad will be on the side of the direction you steer that lessens the noise.

Noise in front wheels of 97 dodge dakota


You have a wheel hub assembly with bad needle bearings. Make sure by getting the vehicle up to operating speed and cruise a curvy road. A quieting down on a right hand turn will indicate a left wheel bearing assembly,(and vice versa) and you have to put some force into the turn in order to notice the changes in the sound. You'll find one turn will be quieter than the other. I had this problem with a similar vehicle and purchased the wheel hub assembly through Rock Auto (google them. You'll be glad you did). Thirty percent cheaper than the local parts house, and they shipped the part quite quickly. Make sure, by the way, to clean out the pocket where the assembly goes in. Simply pull the wheel off, drop the caliper, and you'll see three bolts holding the assembly. Take the nut off the end of the axle shaft and be prepared to beat the old assembly off with a heavy hammer. You will not have to drop either ball joint, although you should inspect them for wear at that time. Slip the replacement assembly onto the shaft and line up the splines before trying to mount the assembly. The whole job should take you maybe about an hour, and you may not break all that much of a sweat while you're at it. Good luck and be confident. You can do this!

Is front drivers side wheel bearing hard to replace on 4.7 2001 dodge dakota 4x4


depends on what you mean by "hard" if your mechanically inclined no, if you aren't, yes. You will need to remove the tire, the brake assembly and then get a large (32 or 34mm probably) socket to take off the spindle nut, I think on the dakota you have to remove the ball joint with a ball joint separator, remove the bearing assembly from the half shaft. (standard procedure on most vehicles) Hope this helps!

2004 Dakota 4x4 Front wheel bearings


according to the manual it should just slide off the spindle... the nut that goes on that requires 185 foot pounds of torque in case you didn't have the specs on it.

How do I replace the driver front wheel bearing on a 2001 dakota


If it is 4X4 you will need to remove your hub assembly. Then If, 2 wheel drive you will need to remove your brake assembly. The dust cover to get access to axle nut. Remove the cotter pin, then the nut. Be careful of the ABS connection on the back of your hub. Replace bearings, races and the seal. Let me know if you need to know how to load your bearings and I’ll go into more detail.
