CHanging out the front hub assembly on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee 4wd

I have changed out the wheel bearings on many a 2wd vehicle b4, just never tackled anything 4wd. I was wondering what are the proper steps in changing out the front wheel hub assemblies....

Thanks & God bless!

    well for one, I mentioned this was for a 4wd, not a rwd.... but the instructions given are only for a rear wheel drive, I know this as I have changed many bearing set ups for 2 wheel drive... I am needing instructions for 4 wheel drive which would include instructions for re-moving the hubs from the cv joints as well ....so it was completely the wrong info... thanks for trying but again... not what I was asking about... no matter where the info came from.. it was the incorrect info in regaurds to which I was asking. Thanks for your efforts tho!
    God bless

Below is a link to the front rotor and all components on a 4WD Jeep Cherokee.

http://www.chiltonlibrary.com/content/images/8674/images/86749g36.pdf

4-Wheel Drive

  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the front wheels.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the front wheels.
  4. Remove the calipers, but don't disconnect the brake lines. Suspend the calipers out of the way.
  5. Remove the rotor.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten wheel lug nuts to 75 ft. lbs. (101 Nm).
Best of luck!

    My apologies, I must have posted the wrong information. Here is a link to pictures with the instructions below. I hope you find the information timely and useful.



    1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.



    2. Remove the wheels.



    3. Remove, but do not disconnect, the caliper. Suspend it out of the way. See Section 9 for additional service information.


    4. Remove the rotor.



    5. Remove the cotter pin, nut retainer, axle nut and washer


    6. Remove the 3 hub-to-steering knuckle attaching bolts.



    7. Remove the hub/bearing carrier and the rotor shield.


    8. Using an arbor press, press the
      hub out of the bearing carrier. Special tools 5073 and 5074 are
      available for this job. Secure the carrier to the press plate with M12
      x 1.75mm x 40mm bolts.



    9. Cut and remove the
      plastic cage from the hub inner bearing. Using diagonal pliers or tin
      snips, cut the bearing cage. Discard the rollers after removing the
      cage.



    10. Remove what remains of the inner bearing as follows:




      1. Install a bearing separator tool on the inner bearing.



      2. Position the separator tool and hub in an arbor press.



      3. Force the hub out of the inner bearing with press pin tool 5074.




    11. Remove the bearing carrier outer seal and discard it.



    12. Drive the inner bearing seal out and discard it. If you're using tool 5078, make sure that the word JEEP faces downward.



    13. Attach press plate tool 5073 to the rear of the carrier. Secure it in the press using M12 x 1.75mm x 40mm bolts.



    14. Position bearing race remover 5076 in the carrier bore between the inner and outer bearing races.



    15. Position the press pin tool 5074 on tool 5076.



    16. Place
      the bearing carrier in the press and force the inner bearing race from
      the carrier bore. Reverse the position of the carrier and tools and
      force the outer bearing race from the bore.

How do you repack front wheel bearings on a 98 Cherokee 4X4


OP<
Posted by J Sparacino on Aug 31, 2016
you double posted. why do that????
no, the hubs are integrated bearing hubs.
here read the parts pages,
see any tapered bearings there,
if not sold , pray tell , how can you pack the bearing not in hand.
not only that, there are like 1000000 books on how to pack front bearing, if they were removable and are not.
why not look first then post.? at car and the book, !
or read the FREE FSM, it says what ?, unbolt them
and replace the integrated hub assembly.
that is a fact. 300 times ive posted the free book, now.
and is still there, and the words still real ,still jeep words and all accurate. sigh.
below is rockautos list of after market hub assemblies.
do not get confused at those needle bearings, those are actually front axle shaft bearings, not hub wheel bearings. fact.
wheel bearing are ball or tapered rollers, to handle lateral huge loading.

How do u remove hubs on a 1992 Isuzu big horn


TO DO WHAT? not even the smallest hint on job or failure.>?
USA?
hubs, the rears have hubs to with disc brake option.rotor hubs.
I guess front hubs?.
guess 2, wheel bearing hubs, and not 4wd axle locking hub units.
doing what?
brakes, wheel bearings, axle damage. 4wd axle bearings what?
the pages are 2wd pages, and 4 wd pages, which is yours?
is this your first time DIY ever. ? or first time 4wd?
guess 3, 4wd, how am I guessing....


names
Acura SLX
Chevrolet Trooper
Isuzu Bighorn
Holden Jackaroo
Holden Monterey
Honda Horizon
HSV Jackaroo
Opel Monterey
Subaru Bighorn
Vauxhall Monterey
wow......
our usa book lists it as trooper only.
so ...

just B or B then A off? if you had b off, you'd see what?, a big nut.
that is locked to spindle shaft.
ill guess? wheel bearings are bad? (just in hub not spindle bearings bad... no matter this is first.)
so you do what. ? here are the steps.

that part"B" must be off first, see the bolts holding it, ?
B = auto locking hubs. or hub axle lockers.
26005769-b5pjo3cin0lhc1b54v4xlnuy-4-0.jpg you can see the caliber must come off, so, do so and tie them up.
  1. "Place the Transfer shift in the 2H position.
  2. Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely on jackstands. (rear tires chocked, and hand brake set hard)
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Loosen the hub to rotor retainer bolts.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts and carefully remove the caliper (along with the brake pads) from the rotor. Do not disconnect the brake line. Secure the caliper out of the way with the flexible line still connected.
  6. Remove the hub nut using hub wrench J-29020-A or equivalent. ( special tool)
  7. Remove the hub cap assembly retainer bolts. Remove the spindle nut, washers, and other components. Remove the hub/rotor, being careful not to drop the outer wheel bearings. As the hub/rotor is pulled forward, the outer wheel bearings will often fall forward.
  8. Once the hub/rotor is removed, remove the retainer bolts securing the rotor and hub together. Inspect the hub and replace if needed."
  9. end removal. install is next... (alldata.com covers this)

  10. Press the hub assembly onto the spindle and install the outer bearing and thrust washer.
  11. Install the hub nut. Turn the hub a few times to seat the bearings and then loosen the nut until there is 0mm axial play. Using a spring tension gauge, check that the preload (with new grease seal installed) is 2.2–6.4 lbs. (9.8–28.4N)
  12. Install the lock-nut, new cotter pin and hub grease cap.
  13. Install the brake torque plate. Install the brake caliper.
  14. Install the wheels and lower the truck.
4wd Models The hub and bearing service procedures for a 4wd models are basically the same as those for a 2wd version, with the exception of removing the free running hub assembly and the bearing preload adjustment.

  1. Thoroughly clean all parts and pack the wheel bearings.
  2. Apply grease to threaded portions of the spindle, grease seal lip and wheel hub.
  3. Tighten the wheel bearing lock-nut with a socket and torque wrench to 58–72 ft. lbs. (78–98 Nm).
  4. Rotate the hub in both directions a few times to seat the bearings. Loosen wheel bearing lock-nut.
  5. Retighten the lock-nut to 0.4–1.1 ft. lbs. (0.5–1.5 Nm).
  6. Turn wheel hub several times in both directions.
  7. Retighten the lock-nut to 0.4–1.1 ft. lbs. (0.5–1.5 Nm). Fig. 1: Exploded view of the front axle assembly — 2wd models 86718030.gif
    Fig. 2: Removing the bearing outer races 86718032.gif
    Fig. 3: Packing the wheel bearing with grease 86718033.gif
    Fig. 4: Pack the lip cavity of grease seal with grease 86718034.gif
    Fig. 5: Exploded view of the front axle assembly — 4wd models 86718031.gif

  8. Measure wheel bearing axial end-play. The wheel bearing end-play specification is 0.
  9. Install lock washer by tightening the lock-nut within 15–30 degrees.
  10. Turn wheel hub several times in both directions. Wheel bearing should be seated correctly.
  11. If necessary, measure wheel bearing preload. NOTE: Measure wheel bearing preload with a spring-type gauge; measure at wheel hub bolt, with tire removed. The hub assembly should rotate with 1.6–4.7 lbs. (0.73–2.13 kg) of pressure.

buy an older truck to answer question all newer model vehicles have gone to a hub/flange bearing assembly these bearing setups handle loads without or very minimum variance, when you go into a cornering situation these bearing setups give you a steady and consistent track thus a better handling vehicle now instead of cleaning and repacing tose old cone and race style bearings you just unbolt hub assembly and any related abs sensors and bolt on new
