    not a job for the uninitiated ! it depends on the type of axle used & if its rear wheel or front wheel drive! disc or drum brake ?? but basically remove wheel & brakes undo axle & remove bearings some need to be placed in a special hydraulic press because they are an interference fit & pressed on & some have spacers & retaining collars! although rear some of the front wheel drives only have a bearing sytem like used on a trailer & can be PUNCHED out of the rear hub ok Cheers Rob.

Replace rear wheel hub assembly 2006 lr3


Replacing the LR3/Disco3 rear wheel bearing is not exactly a DYI / Home Repair job. You will need access to a hub puller to remove the axle spindle and a press to push the bearing out of the knuckle (dont forget to remove the giant C-clip / spring that hold the bearing to the knuckle before pressing). You can follow the LR repair manual removing the knuckle. You most likely need to cut the e-brake / drum brake cable plastic cap in the back (most likely fused to the knuckle). Cutting wont hurt the cable and you can reuse it. It will be PITA to reassemble the drum brakes. A good speed shop / machine will be able to replace your bearing within an hr per wheel. Budget 2.5 hrs time per wheel (exclude press time).

I have a ford focus se 2001 and the two rear wheel barrings keep going bad! We replace them and they go bad every four months! The car has brand new tires and they continue to go out! Any ideas????


If this does not have sealed bearings then you have the old style bearing. The old style bearings are 2 parts, the cone and the race. If you only replace the cone, it will quickly fail because a race that is scored up is abrasive.

If the bearing race has not been properly installed it will be lopsided in the seat of the hub. There is also a process for installing the race, never, ever draw the race into the hub using the old or new bearing. You will scar, flatten, or bend both parts.

There is a process for packing the bearing with grease, and there is a front and back to the seal for the hub for these old style units.

Now if the bearing is a third style, a sealed trailer hub style that bolts onto the axle shaft, this style acts both as the spindle and a permanent bearing. Some Manufactuers go this route for simplicity, but some chose to have a removeable sealed bearing as yet another combination.

Do not understand if you are saying just the bearings go bad or the tires go bad too. Usually bad bearings cause the tires to go bad, not the other way around.

Sometimes you have problems with the rear Emergency brake pads, some need to be loosened and readjusted when the brakes are taken off to get at the hub.

Please rate my info.

There is no real torque settings for the rear wheels, except to say, do not over tighten or you will stretch the lugs and the will loosen over time.

I replaced the front hub bearings and struts and I still feel like there is still a bearing problem


Have you look at the rear bearings and also are the tires cupped, cupped tires will give you a bearing type noise and feel, also make sure the rear bearings are good, the hard part is to locate a bad bearing thats not to bad, the only way is to listen for the noise or wheel is loose, you can remove them and try to spin it by hand and see if it spins smoothly but anyway look at tires and try to check the rear,let me know why you think you still have a bearing problem, are you feeling or hearing something. good day.

Change rear wheel bearing is it hard to do ford fusion 03


Lightly losen the lug nuts with the tires on the the ground. Jack up the car and remove the tire according to the owner's manual. Make sure to block the wheels. After the tire is removed, release the park brake. Support the car on jack stands. Remove four bolts from the rear of hub. The hub nut will be 29 mm - it is important that you have a tight fit if you attempt to remove the nut.

At this point you MAY have to loosen or remove the remove the emergency brake cable. Either way the hub is ready to be removed. The front of the hub (with the lugs) and the bearing will come out and the back plate and brake shoes will remain in place.

Once you get it off, you may either purchase a hub assembly (which includes the hub with a new bearing in place ready-to-go) or take the existing hub and a replacement bearing to an auto machine shop which can easily remove the old bearing and install the new bearing. Using extreme care you can remove the old one using bearing pullers and prybars and replace the bearing using large deep sockets or a properly sized piece of steel pipe.

Since you have the hub apart, you should inspect the brake shoes and (brake) wheel cylinders and replace them as needed. Replace brake parts on both sides if you replace them on either.

Put the hub back into the brake shoes. It may only line up one way. Finger tighten ALL FOUR of the bolts and then tighten. Replace the tire and remove the lifting equipment. Start slowly so the brakes can readjust!

On my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 2WD, I just found


This is a very simple job to do. Raise the front of truck off the ground,block the rear tires. Using pliers and a hammer,remove the grease cap from hub. Remove the cotter key and nut from axle,pull out slowly and remove outer bearing. then remove hub from axle. To remove inner bearing ,prop hub on a board and use a large punch to drive out bearing and seal. Clean out inside the hub and install new bearing and seal. Replace all parts in the reverse as you took them off. Hope this will help you.
