How do you remove a rear hub on a 04 kia sedona?


Call Kia with your VIN to make sure yours wasn't affected by the recall. You may be able to have that rear bearing replaced for free at Kia.

HUBCAP & OUTER BEARING REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE: 1. Remove the two (2) cross-tip locating screws on the brake drum.

2. Remove the brake drum.

3. Remove cotter pin and cover set.

4. Remove nut, claw washer, outer bearing and hub assembly.

5. Inspect inner bearing area in both hubs for any sign of moisture, corrosion, grease discoloration or contamination. If "yes" discard entire hub and replace with new assembly. If "no" proceed with outer bearing replacement below: 6. Carefully remove the outer bearing race from the hub. If the hub assembly is damaged then replace the hub assembly as a complete unit. (If inner seal is damaged while removing the outer race replace with new seal.)

7. Clean all contaminated grease from outer bearing cavity of the hub.

8. Install a new outer race into the hub using an appropriate race installation tool.

9. Apply grease MS511-33 WBG2 or equivalent to the hub assembly and the new bearing(s) especially to the shaded areas.

10. Install hub assembly, new pre-greased outer bearing and new claw washer on spindle. (Or alternatively, install entire new hub assembly, as supplied). Ensure bearings are properly seated then tighten hub/spindle nut, torque nut to 20-25 lb-ft (27-33 Nm.) Verify hub spins freely without signs of binding or excessive play.

11. Install new cover set and cotter pin; never reuse the old cotter pin.

12. Install new hub cap with Loctite # 5910(TM) or equivalent sealant to prevent moisture intrusion.

13. Install the rear brake drum using tapered locating screws.

14. Install rear wheels and torque lug nuts to proper specification. (65-79 lb-ft) (88-108 Nm, 9-11 kgm)

15. Lower vehicle.

Torque specs bearing


Honestly you should search google. It is right there. the inner hub nut must be torqued to 59 Nm rotate the hub three times in each direction and then loosen the inner hub nut until it can be turned by hand, then again tighten the inner hub nut to 25 Nm. the lockwasher against the inner hub nut, it only goes in one way, it has a small inner tab that locates with the key way of the hub, this is between the threads. Once the lock washer is in the correct position, you can now install the outer hub nut, this outer nut must be torqued to 47 Nm, once you have tightened this outer nut, please once again check that the starting effort is correct.

What are the torque settings for landcruiser hub and axle assembly


This is for the hub....front hub:

  1. Install the hub with a new gasket and tighten the mounting nuts to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).
  2. Install the bolt and washer and tighten it to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  3. Coat the inner hub splines with grease.
  4. Make sure the control handle on the cover is still at FREE (if not automatic), position a new gasket in the cover and install the cover so that the pawl tabs are lines up with the non-toothed portions of the hub body. Tighten the mounting nuts to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
This is for the rear hub:

To install:
  1. Place the hub on the axle housing and install the outer bearing.
  2. Install the lock plate with the lock plate tab positioned into the groove of the axle housing.
  3. Install and tighten the adjusting nut with the special tool used during removal.
  4. Torque the nut to 43 ft. lbs. (59 Nm). Rotate the hub a few times and retorque the adjusting nut to 43 ft. lbs. (59 Nm).
  5. Loosen the adjusting nut until the hub can be turned by hand.
  6. Tighten the nut a small amount and check the amount of pressure required to rotate the hub using a spring tension gauge.
  7. The recommended rotational torque is 5.7-12.6 lbs. (1984-88: 0.9-7.3 lbs.). Tighten or loosen the adjusting nut as required to obtain this reading.
  8. Align one of the axle housing slots with one of the adjusting nut slots. Install the lock screws into the holes of the adjusting nut which are at right angles to the aligned slots. Torque the lock screws to 35-60 inch lbs.
  9. Recheck the rational torque and install the axle shaft using a new gasket.
  10. Install the wheels and lower the vehicle.
