The front wheel bearings might be sealed in the hub. I'm not sure what year your car is but this could be the case. you can all your local parts store to find out. if they don't list the bearing itself, then you'll have to replace the hub. if the bearing is available it can be pressed in manually. there may even be a tool you can rent from the parts store.

How do I replace front wheel bearings on 2008


Hi, replacing the front wheel bearings on any vehicle is difficult if you don,t have the right tools, as the driveshaft and wheel hub (where the bearing is seated) needs to be removed. The hub housing the bearing may have to be heated (depending on corrosion) when the bearing is being pressed out, by using a heavy duty vice , and the new bearing is pressed in using the vice and the old bearing as a guide. I would strongly suggest you refer this repair to someone who has done this before, I personally would not undertake to change front bearings ever again, the first time for me was an experience I wouldn't want to undertake again. All the best.

I have stripped a wheel lug and need to replace the front wheel hub. It stripped the grooves on the lug that fit into the hub.


Have you tried just installing a new wheel stud?

If you replace the hub you will also need to replace the wheel bearing since the bearing will be ruined when the hub is pressed out of it.

You will need to remove the knuckle from the vehicle and bring it to either a machine shop or auto shop to have the bearing and hub pressed in and out.

Need to change front wheel bearing


Hub and Bearing Removal & Installation NOTE: The removal and installation of the wheel bearing and hub from the steering knuckle is only to be done with the steering knuckle removed from the vehicle
To Remove:
  1. Remove the steering knuckle and hub and bearing assembly.
  2. Remove a wheel lug stud from the hub flange using a C-clamp and Adapter Tool 4150A or equivalent.
  3. Rotate the hub to align the removed lug stud with the notch in the bearing retainer plate. Use a proper C-clamp and adapter tool to press out one of the lug studs 7922eg64.gif

    Rotate the hub in order to remove the lug stud 7922eg65.gif

  4. Rotate the hub so the stud hole is facing away from the brake caliper's lower rail on the steering knuckle.
  5. Install ½ of a Bearing Splitter Tool 1130 or equivalent between the hub and the bearing retainer plate. The threaded hole in this ½ is to be aligned with the caliper rail on the steering knuckle.
  6. Install the remaining pieces of the bearing splitter on the steering knuckle. Hand-tighten the nuts to hold the splitter in place on the knuckle. Proper installation of the bearing splitter 7922eg66.gif

  7. When the bearing splitter is installed, be sure the 3 bolts attaching the bearing retainer plate to the knuckle are contacting the bearing splitter. The bearing retainer plate should not support the knuckle or contact the splitter.
  8. Place the steering knuckle in a hydraulic press, supported by the bearing splitter. Properly support the steering knuckle for hub and bearing removal 7922eg67.gif

  9. Position a driver on the small end of the hub. Using the press, remove the hub from the wheel bearing. The outer bearing race will come out of the wheel bearing when the hub is pressed out of the bearing.
  10. Remove the bearing splitter tool from the knuckle.
  11. Place the knuckle in a press supported by the press block. The blocks must not obstruct the bore in the steering knuckle so the wheel bearing can be pressed out of the knuckle. Place a driver on the outer race of the wheel bearing, and then press the bearing out of the knuckle.
  12. Install the bearing splitter on the hub. The splitter is to be installed on the hub so it is between the flange of the hub and the bearing race on the hub. Place the hub, bearing race and splitter in a press. Use a driver to press the hub out of the bearing race.
To Install:
  1. Use clean, dry cloth to wipe and grease or dirt from the bore of the steering knuckle.
  2. Clean the rust preventative from the replacement wheel bearing using a clean, dry towel.
  3. Place the new wheel bearing into the bore of the steering knuckle. Be sure the bearing is placed squarely into the bore. Place the knuckle in a press with a receiver tool, C-4698-2 or equivalent supporting the steering knuckle. Place a driver tool on the outer race of the wheel bearing. Press the wheel bearing into the steering knuckle until it is fully bottomed in the bore of the steering knuckle. NOTE: Only the original or original equipment replacement bolts should be used to mounting the bearing retainer to the knuckle. If a bolt requires replacement when installing the bearing retainer plate, be sure to get the proper type of replacement.
  4. Install the bearing retainer plate on the steering knuckle. Install the 3 bearing retainer mounting bolts. Torque the bolts to 21 ft-lbs (28 Nm).
  5. Install the removed wheel lug stud into the hub flange.
  6. Place the hub with the lug stud installed, in a press supported by Adapter Tool C-4698-1 or equivalent. Press the wheel lug stud into the hub flange until it is fully seated against the back side on the hub flange.
  7. Place the steering knuckle with the wheel bearing installed, in a press with special Receiver Tool MB-990799 or equivalent supporting the inner race of the wheel bearing. Place the hub in the wheel bearing, making sure it is square with the bearing. Press the hub into the wheel bearing until it is fully bottomed in the wheel bearing.
  8. Install the steering knuckle and the wheel.
  9. Check and/or adjust the front alignment.

How to change front wheel bearings on a 1996geo prism


To change the bearings on the front of the prizm, you will need to remove the steering knuckle unless you have the means of an on car bearing press, such as a "tomcat". You will have to remove the wheel, caliper, rotor, outer tie rod end nut, axle nut, lower ball joint mounting bolts, steering knuckle to strut mount bolts. press the hub from the knuckle assembly, remove internal snap ring that retains bearing and press the bearing out the other side of the knuckle. Reverse proceedure to install. You will need an alignment once you are done.
Good luck

How to install wheel bearing in left front of the car


That will be a pressed in type of bearing. It has to be installed from rear of spindle. The bearing is in back & the hub comes through front and into bearing, which also requires press fit. You'll have to remove entire spindle/knuckle assy, and at least get it in a vise or on a bench. It can be done without a press, but has to be done carefully & patiently, because damage to new parts or hub can happen real easy if not done right. Are you equipped for the challenge?
