Usually the parts number of the bearing will be on the outside so that you can read it when you access the bearing. On most bearings yes it does matter because they are designed to carry a load in a certain way so if you change the direction it will not operate properly and fail. This is not always the case but it's the rule of thumb. Also the shape of a bearing may determine how it fits in the area it is suppose to rest in. I have actually seen some one mount wheel bearings back ward with the inner and outer races installed opposite . I was able to salvage the job but barely they almost had to buy a spindle also besides just new bearings. Looking at the picture closer it almost looks like there is a rubber seal on the inside edge of the bearing and it looks like that may be the cover plate laying on the ground behind it. Is there a seal on the face plate laying on the ground? If so you need to replace it. To me it doesn't look like there is one and you have the bearing turned backwards with the seal on the bearing on the inside instead of the outside. Is this an oil bearing or a grease bearing. It looks like this is on a piece of heavy equipment and I am a heavy equipment mechanic also. I would suspect then the bearing IS BACKWARDS and the plate will go over o hold the bearing in place so there should most likely be a gasket or o ring that goes between the faceplate and the machine mounting surface. Depending on What machine this is you will use either 90 -160 weight oil depending on Manufacturing specs. OR Hydraulic oil. Put in it what the manufacture says. I would also use some type of cleaner to clean the inside area of any metal particles that may have remained from the previous bearing failure. I would also polish up that shaft some where the seal will ride , clean it good then lube it to prevent damaging the seal when you install it. If there were any shim plates between the face plate and machine be sure they are clean and install them also. If there were shims and you do not put shims back in then the bearing may be too tight and burn up. If no shims then ok. Good luck hope I helped.

The tcl light comes my dash what's dose mean ?


That would be the "traction control light". There are a couple of times you could see it. When you first start your car, when you push the TCL button or when there is a problem with it. You should take it to a qualified machanic and have it checked out or you can verify what I have told you in your owners manual and then take it to a qualified mechanic.

2001 montero/ rumbling noise in front


There are a few things that this could be, and I see that you have replaced a few of the items that it could be but steering systems are a weird thing so here ya go:

  1. Excessive inner CV joint angle
  2. Sticking inboard joint assembly
  3. Lack of lube at the ball joints
  4. Loose upper strut mount
  5. Worn tie rods
  6. Loose stabilizer bar
  7. Loose suspension bolts
  8. And, believe it or not, a blister or bump on the tire
If you got a Chilton's or Haynes manual to do this job, it states in there how much grease should be packed into the bearings. Also, making sure of the length of your CV axle.

Post more info you would like, to pass on.
