SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: replacing front wheel bearings on a 2004 Suburban

The front wheel bearings are sealed units, and must be replaced with the entire hub assembly. They do not need periodic cleaning/replacing as they did in the old days, if they are not making noise do not bother with them.

How to replace front driver side wheel bearing on a 2007 Lincoln mkz


Take everything off =tire, brake rotor , caliper, hub has to come off and bearing has to be pressed out. And pressed back in. Dont try and do it with the auto parts rental tool. Bring it to a garage and pay the $50 or $70 dollars to get it done. Will save you big headache if you dont have press. Note: you must take out a snap ring to press it out. You may have a hard time seeing it , but it;s there.

I have a 2007 Lincoln MKZ with the infamous driveshaft carrier bearing noise. My question is can the (front) carrier bearing be replaced alone instead of the complete driveshaft at a tune of 700 +...


First, I wouldn't be at a dealer

I mark all my drive shafts, as installed, and take
them to a driveshaft shop that,makes or repairs them

I have ALL driveshafts balanced

I have a Lincoln LS ,so I'm guessing your
newer MKZ is front wheel drive ??

Having once owned a trans repair shop, your
transaxle ,if that is what you have, will have to
be stripped clean, to do the bearings your talking
about

On a rear drive, such as my LS, you still have to
remove the rear differental case and strip it, for
brgs

The $700 sounds like a dealer fishing for a solution
to a rear wheel drive vehicle with a vibration

They try a new drive shaft,why not,only your money
