Rear axel bearings, how to replace


If you haven't done it before I would let a professional do it, but if it's the bearings on the carrier you will need a press to remove and add new bearings, if it's outer there is a tool for that as well to pull old bearings out. You will open up diff cover and unbolt center pin from gears, then you should be able to slide axle shafts in to remove c clips making you able to remove shafts, then it's just removing and installing new bearings.

How to remove knuckle / hub from front axle? Splines are binding, I've applied a puller, ball and tie rod ends removed and strut to knuckle bolts are loosened. I need to replace the outer CV joint. Any...


most likely the bearings in the hub are rusted to the axel. If you work at it you can use a point air chisel to push the axel shaft out you will have to replace the bearing in the hub. worst case you could take the hub and axel off together and press the axel out in a press. either way you will have to replace the hub bearing.

Passenger side at end of axle losse inside rotor is loose on bearing and flopping inside with wheel off will just a bearing fix this


most likely it will be just the bearing, unless someone has driven it this way for prolonged time in this case it might need other parts as well such as a new axel, or even a rotor. if it has been the case then the axel nut that holds the axel in the bearing has gotten so hot the chances of loosining it up will be verry slim and verry hard to remove, thus damaging the axel nut threads. if nit is this loose, I would expect to replace the bearing and the axel.

Rear wheel bearing


if its like the 99 winstar:

safely support the van, remove rear wheel, remove brake drum, remove grease cap. remove caged locknut assembly (38mm socket i think.) then pull the hub assembly from the axel. you may need to cut away the inner race if the bearing falls apart. clean axel, apply alittle anti size compound, then push on the new hub assembly. tighten down the hub nut to specifications (should be on the leaflet in the new bearing package), install dust cap, install drum, install wheel, lower and drive :)

How do I go about changing the bearings in my front hub?


In order to change them you must do the following.
1) Remove tire
2) decompress the brake caliper
3) unbolt brake caliper and lay it to the side (no need to disconnect brake line
4) remove castle nut from axel
5) unbolt stearing linkage from ball joint (on van door side of hub)
6) unbolt strut from hub (make sure the vehicle is jacked up high enough to allow the hub/wheel assymbly to hang as low as possible.
7) remove CV axel from hub
8) unbolt lower ball joint from hub
9) take hub out
10) remove seal and retainer ring form front and back of hub (retainer ring is on the front side seal is on the back side
11) I highly recommend a press (rent one it is worth it, trust me) and remove the old bearing.
12) insert new bearing and press in (again I recomend renting the press)
13) put everything back the way it came off and your done.
NOTE: I strongly suggest placing the bearing in the freezer for several hours before you start working on the replacement. This lets the metal contract slightly and makes it easier to get it into the hub.
Also you might need a small propain torch to heat the hub up to make it easier to remove the old bearing (especialy if you do not have a press, again RENT THE PRESS)
Good luck.

How to replace 1996 dodge neon cv joints


Remove the wheel and the lower ball joint from the spindle. It will also make it easier if you remove the tie rod end. There is a large hut at the tire end of the axel. Remove that nut and washer. Take a rubber or brass Hammer and hit the end of the axel to push it through the bearing assembly. If it is really stuck, put the nut back on so that the nut is even with the end of the axel and uses a heavier hamer to break it loose. Once you break it loose, pull back on the rotor while pushing the axel to remove it from the hole it passes through. (Becarefull with the brake hose. If it is pulling too tight it might be best to remove the caliper and use a hanger to suspend it until you are done.) You will need a really BIG screw driver or a pry bar. Put the pry bar between the case and the hub of the axel and push in quickly and firmly to pop it out of the trans axel. It might take a few tries. If it resists look for a ridge and put a big screw drive on the ridge and use a hammer to pop it out.

Once it is out, reverse directions. Do not use the hammer on the new axel any where.put the end into the trans axel as far as it will go and then put the other end through the wheel bearing. Use the leverage you have with the rotor and bearing side to push the axel into the trans. You should hear it snap into place. Before you put the ball joint back on go to the trans axel side and use that pry bar and gently try to remove. if it resists it is seated, if it slides out, you need to seat it again. ONce you are sure it is firmly seated back into the trans, you can bump the ball joint and tie rod back together.

Good luck and be careful

Subaru cv axle noise?


Do you know if this car has ever been recked? if your going thru that many axels makes me think something is not running true, a wheel bearing would not make a cv joint in a axel go bad. Did you replace the axels? or did you have them done at a shop, and did you see the old axels after they were replaced. You got bigger problems than a wheel bearing. From what i can gather some thing is bent or your getting bunch of bad axels witch i dought.

Replace rear axel bearing on 4x4 5.3 Litre gas engine


Loosen differential cover and let oil drain. Remove cover, remove U lock from axel. Pull axel out. Remove bearing seal then bearing. Install new bearing, seal and reinstall axel. Reinstall U lock and new cover gasket. Fill with 75-90wt gear oil. Now I know that sound pretty straight forward. But there are some things to remember. The U lock can be difficult to remove sometimes. The most important thing is the seal, you will need to make sure it gets seated correctly and not torn when installing axel.
