    thanks, I do have basic skills, just need step-by-step instructions. e.g: will I need a bearing puller to remove the bearing from the hub or a press?

The front bearings on a mazda 626 are sealed and you must remove the entire hub assembly to have a shop or dealer install the bearings. The hardest part is you need to remove the center axel nut and it is very tight and is called a stake nut. If you do not have a fairly good amout of skill at repairs, this is one job that is safest left to the pros. Just one missed step can create more damage than you could beleive.

What is a front right barring on a mazda mx6


You must be referring to the wheel bearing. The wheel bearings are pressed into the wheel hub. If they are bad, most people just replace the hub with new bearings already installed.

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.
