Rear Wheel Bearing

I have all of the bolts removed but can not get the bearing to break free. Have tried penetrating oil and vibration. Do I dare try using heat?

SOURCE: How Do i remove Rear wheel bearing 2005 dodge caravan

raise van take off wheel you must use jackstands or support your van securly its going to rock alot Take off the four bolts located on the back side of the bearing then take out the small bolt from the speed sensor also located in behind the bearing remove the speed sensor. you will need a large mechanics hammer or heavy blunt object. beat the bearing from the back side dont worry about the cog attached you new bearing has one. dont listen to your hanyes or chiltons manuals thanks.

Best bet is to get at it with a hammer and screw driver or chisel and try to break it free. When your wheel bearing freezes like that sometimes welds itself to the axle. Very hard to remove

Here is the easiest way . take a 14mm socket and extentsion and place it on the bolts and place againt your axle tube and start your truck and turn your wheel against it instead of pounding you will use your powersteering like a press to get your hub out its quicker and less strenous than pounding on the bolts ive done this many times i even made a extentsion for it i use a 14mm 1/2 drive shallow socket and a extension thats about 4 inches long i know im posting late on this one but if it helps anyone out then great

Yes those are bolts. You remove those from the back side. This takes a while sometimes. If you can't get them by reverse alone, try hitting them with impact in forward for a hit or two to brake it loose a little. If the new hub comes with new bolts, don't be afarid to brake them. PS, after those bolts are removed, don't forget to remove the nut on the axle shaft. You may also need to use an air hammer to help remove old hub after bolts are removed.

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Dakota 4 wheel drive hub wont budge

These can REALLY stick solidly in place. I usually get them off with one of two methods: A big slide hammer attached to the wheel studs using a hub adapter or by pushing against one of the hub mounting bolts using my biggest air hammer with a flat hammer bit in it. You will wreck the head of the bolt doing this so you need to have another one on hand if it comes to that. I turn the bolt nearly all the way back in so there is just an 1/8" of room between the head of the bolt and the steering knuckle [to provide the maximum thread surface on which the force will be applied] and then rattle on it with the air hammer unit it moves a bit. You may need to move this bolt around to the other holes to work the hub free. Clean the corrosion and rust out of the bore that the hub mounts in before installing the new hub so it will go back in properly. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

How do i remove a seized up rear wheel bearing on a 2 wheel drive 2007 Chrysler Pacifica Touring


How do you know its the bearings.

Aussuming the car is front wheel drive, what happens when you try to drive it? Does it drag the wheel? There is a chance it may break it free since you've gone over it with a slege hammer.

Having trouble removing right front wheel bearing on my 04 vue i tried tapping, chisels, air chisel, penetrating oil nothing seems to work.


The Saturn Vue should have a bolt-on bearing with integrated wheel hub and ABS. It is held on with 3 bolts.

I assume that you got the wheel, rotor, and brake caliper off. You've removed the 3 bolts thru the knuckle to the bearing. And you have the axle nut off and the axle pushed out or at least lose from the bearing spline.

The bearing can get stuck in the aluminum knuckle pilot diameter. The galvanic corrosion between the bearing and knuckle can lock the bearing into the knuckle pretty tightly. It is not a press fit, it's just stuck. I had one GM bearing that had to be pushed out with a hydraulic press.

Keep soaking with penetrating oil and keep hitting it. Otherwise you'll need to remove the knuckle/bearing from the car and find a press.

Crank shaft movement


did you check the pulley on the crank shaft ??
is it warped ?? ( bent )
because i do not think that the truck will run with the crankshaft moving.....back and forth.
so in any case you have a lot of work to do.
here is how to remove the crank shaft.
REMOVAL
  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the oil pump from the rear main bearing cap.
  3. Remove the vibration damper.
  4. Remove the timing chain cover.
  5. Identify bearing caps before removal. Remove bearing caps and bearings one at a time.
  6. Lift the crankshaft out of the block.
  7. Remove and discard the crankshaft rear oil seals.
  8. Remove and discard the front crankshaft oil seal.
INSTALLATION
  1. Lightly oil the new upper seal lips with engine oil.
  2. Install the new upper rear bearing oil seal with the white paint facing towards the rear of the engine.
  3. Position the crankshaft into the cylinder block.
  4. Lightly oil the new lower seal lips with engine oil.
  5. Install the new lower rear bearing oil seal into the bearing cap with the white paint facing towards the rear of the engine.
    1. Apply 5 mm (0.20 inch) drop of Loctite 518, or equivalent, on each side of the rear main bearing cap. DO NOT over apply sealant or allow the sealant to contact the rubber seal. Assemble bearing cap to cylinder block immediately after sealant application.
    2. lb align the bearing cap, use cap slot, alignment dowel and cap bolts. DO NOT remove excess material after assembly. DO NOT strike rear cap more than 2 times for proper engagement.
    3. Clean and oil all cap bolts. Install all main bearing caps. Install all cap bolts and alternately tighten to 115 Nm (85 ft. lbs.) torque.
    4. Install oil pump.
    5. Install the timing chain cover.
    6. Install the vibration damper.
      1. Apply Mopar Silicone Rubber Adhesive Sealant, or equivalent, at bearing cap to block joint to provide cap to block and oil pan sealing. Apply enough sealant until a small amount is squeezed out. Withdraw nozzle and wipe excess sealant off the oil pan seal groove.
      2. Install new front crankshaft oil seal.
      3. Immediately install the oil Dan.
if you have an email address i can send some images
