No it dosen't need pressed out or in. I just use a hammer to bet it out and the new one should go right in alittle tight but it will go.

The wheel bearing is pressed in. you can use a any deep socket that fits the hub hole of the wheel and tap the bearing out with a hammer. Reverse for install the new bearing. make sure to pack the bearing with bearing grease before you install it.

If you're good you can do this without a press. A wooden jig or a piece of PVC pipe and a hammer would probably work.

But my recommendation would be to take it to a machinist.

Unfortunately wheel bearings are pressed in! You can buy kits on ebay or from your local motor accessories store to save you some money!

How can I remove rear outer bearing?


New style bearings are all pressfit bearings, if your hub came right out of the bearing assembly, it is time for the whole assembly. The hub assembly has a locking ring that holds the outer bearing race inside the hub, after the wheel hub has been pressed out. Then, after the lockring has been removed it can be pressed out and the new bearing can be pressed back in and then the lockring reinserted. Then the wheel hub gets pressed in.

1993 Mitsubishi Diamante. To replace inner wheel bearings. You need to remove the wheel, caliber and bracket, rotor, and hub correct? The wheel bearings are on the inside of the hub correct?


Yes. You have to press the bearing out. If you don't have the press tools. Best to take spindle to a shop and have them press the new one in. Don't know of renting the press tools. Don't forget to torque the axle nut.

How to replace a front wheel bearing on a 1995 toyota surf


I do not know but I ended up have to get a replacement wheel assembly on my Toyota Corolla. I replaced the wheel bearing it self 3 times in 6 months. Do not know if the assembly was damaged when the inner race was pressed out / in.

Make sure you know what you are doing and use a very reputable machine shop that has experience with Toyota wheel bearings.

Best, Jim

I need a diagram of the front wheel bearing assembly. I need to know how to remove the right front wheel bearing and remove - reinstall the center "geared insert" in the bearing without damaging...


These are pressed in. You have to press the hub out first(center part), then there is a C clip that has to be removed to press the bearing out. If you don't have a 20 ton press take it to a shop. Costs about$30.00

Bad Wheel Bearing on a 1994 Toyota Camry should I also replace the abs sensor?


You should only replace the sensor if it is damaged. Most Japanese made vehicles have bearings that are pressed in to the wheel hub. Your local parts store should have a new hub assembly that comes with the bearings already pressed in it. If you know of a machine shop that will press new bearings in the old hub and remove the old bearings that may be a little less expensive. They need to be removed and installed using a bearing press. Please rate me on this answer.

I would like to know if the wheel bearing is in the shaft or the hub?


The Constant Velocity (CV) joints are located on the inner and outer edges of the axle shaft. The axle shaft runs through the hub and bearing in the spindle.

How do I change Wheel Bearing


First I need to know if it is a front or rear bearing. If its a front, you could do the majority of the labor yourself and save some $$. You need to remove the steering knuckle that has the failed bearing. Once this is out, find a shop that will press the bearing and hub out and press the new bearing in. This is not something you can do yourself, unless you own and know how to operate a hydraulic press. Once the bearing has been changed out simply reinstall the steering knuckle, and take your car to get an alignment. If you have a rear bearing they are very easy. Remove the wheel and brake drum, then remove the 4 10mm bolts behind the knuckle to unbolt the bearing. Reinstalling is just the reverse of that.

Replace front wheel bearings


The bearings in your car are pressed into a hub. If the part is available as an assembly, it can be replaced that way. Generally on a front drive car:
Remove wheels and brake calipers
If it is pressed in: remove the rotors, disconnect the drive shafts and remove the steering knuckle. Then the old bearing is pressed out and the new one pressed in with a machine shop press. If the bearing is part of the hub, that will be unbolted and the new one swapped.

On a scale of 1-10 difficulty, Id rate it a strong 7
