It isn't a particularly hard job but there are a few techniques that you need to know.
I wouldn't recommend you do it yourself but I would recommend you do it under supervision of someone who knows their stuff.
Retensioning the bearings correctly is extremely important.

2006 ford fusion front wheel bearings


Yes, your model does have front wheel bearings. I am wondering what you want to know about them?

I do have a few comments about front wheel bearings.

If you are considering replacing them yourself then asking questions about them indicates you neither have the skill, experience or tools to tackle the work.

Wheel bearings before they are fitted are delicate and must be treated accordingly and the cleaning and preparing of parts prior to assembly plays a big part in the life of the new bearing and can take as long as the reassembly.

My advice is to buy a repair manual and pay for a good professional to fit the first one while you observe...

I have a 1997 Ford falcon Gli EL auto sedan. I need to obtain new front L&R light assemblies.Can you help.


Just contact some vehicle dismantlers/wreckers in your area that deal in Ford parts.

Getting a set of those front lights in good shape should be fairly easy as there are many of these vehicles in wreckers yards now.

I have a ford falcon MKII, there are times wherein my steering wheel is shaking left and right really hard when I'm driving. After a minute or 2, it will disappear. Is it ABS, brake or what?


I would check the steering ball joints for wear and replace as necessary
from your description it sounds like castor wobble so have the front end suspension checked and then have a wheel alignment done
check wheel bearing condition and adjustment

Replace front wheel bearing 2009 Honda accord


Hello James.
I don't wish to insult you but replacing the front wheel bearing of a front wheel drive vehicle requires the sort of tool kit and skill level that if you need to ask how you do you do it you are unlikely to possess.

By the time a wheel bearing needs replacing it has been subjected to years of heat, cold and moisture and removing the bearing from the hub can be fraught with difficulties not covered by an average repair manual, difficulties which needs experience and equipment to overcome.
As if that isn't bad enough the work needed to clean and prepare the hub to accept the new bearing needs the realisation the assembly is a piece of precision equipment requiring very high standards if the replacement bearing is to have the best chance of returning a good life-span. This is also true of actually fitting the new bearing where if pressure isn't applied correctly it can be ruined in a second or have it's working life seriously shortened.

I suggest you ask an experienced someone else to fit the bearing this time while you observe.
