Question about 2003 Mazda Mazda6
I have a 2003 mazda 6. the front passenger side wheel bearing is making a lot of noise. i bought a wheel bearing and fancy changing it myself, do i need a hydralic press or will it come out with a bit of elbow power?????
To change that, using a hydraulic press is highly recommended. if you are DIY experienced, this trick works as well:
take a pice of a stable metal pipe, 10-20 cm long. and in diameter just a tick smaller than gross bearing size. take a very heavy tool and use the pipe to beat out the old bearing. dont be shy, needs a lot of power.
do not use this method to insert the new bearing. use a pice of wood instead (must sit stable on the outer bearing ring!!), lubircate a bit and beat carfully and very straigt in fractions of a mm. this is the difficult part and here the bearing may brake if you are too rough.
Not really recommend, but working when used with brain and care.
