SOURCE: 04 f150 driver side hub wont unlock passenger

When you say no vacuum leaks, is this specific to the driver's side IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) ?

Did you hook up the vent and vacuum line correctly ( not backwards ) ? - Use the passenger's side as a reference.

If you jack up the truck ( engine off ) and use a might vac ( or similar vacuum pump ) on the IWE directly, will it pull the IWE gear out ? This should do the trick, as long as the new IWE gear was installed correctly.

If not, I would check the driver's side IWE install against the service manual, to make sure it was installed correctly.

SOURCE: I replaced the driver side wheel hub and now it

Yes they do and they work independantly of each other. Each wheel has it's own axle and hub coming from the transmission mounted underneath the motor. If the car is pulling to the right you need to check the brakes and make sure they are not grabbing. Front wheels usually have disc brakes and the calipers tend to bind up and grab over time, this will cause the car to pull to the right. You might also have an alignment issue and that can cuase the car to pull, even a low tire will cause this. The floating issue is probably due to a worn strut and it is not doing its job as a shock absorber. When your replaced the hub did you also replace the axle? The axles must also match up to each other. The car could also be pulling to the right because you replaced the left hub and it now is turning with less friction than the right. You should go ahead and replace the right and check the brakes for any grabbing or worn rotor. Once this is done get an alignment and this should resolve the pulling issue.

The driver's side rear wheel is stuck and will not rotate on the axle. How can I get this unstck? Do I need to replace the wheel hub?

I'm going with common sense here

Do you even have the brake drum off?

You won't know about a wheel hub until you get to it

Most likely you have two things : rusted parking brake
cables ,that quite working years ago & need replacing
& negelect, as far as stripping down the brakes once a year,
to prevent those those issues in the first place

Cant get the hub to come off to replace the wheel bearing on the front driver side

Most hubs have sealed bearings in them so when you get the hub out you will have to replace the hub assembly. As for getting it out try using a slide hammer with a hub attachment. It bolts onto the wheel studs.

I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 4 wheel drive. I

i have found that you need to first make sure the cv shaft is moving free in the bearing. soak everything with penitrating oil. you should be able to move shaft in & out a little. the hub is a very tight fit. you need to tap it some from side to side untill you see a little gap between hub and spindel. then place the head of a flat screw driver in that gap and all around the hub, prying back and forth where ever possible. soak, tap and pry all over. be hard on it if replacing, more gentle if not. good luck.

Need instruction manual/schematics for replacing 2005 kia rio driver side rear wheel bearing. i've got the wheel/hub/bearing off, not the inside ring to the bearing. i need to know how to replace it .

clean all the grease if there is any out of the hub, turn the hub over and using a drift and hammer strike the shell from the back edge working around the shell as you go, should not take too much to remove it but you will need a bit more than a tap with the hammer.
Hope this has helped you

I need to replace my front wheel bearings and I was looking for a step by step instructions along with pictures show the parts?

You can't just replace the bearings. You've got to replace the entire wheel hub (thank you genius engineers at Chevy). My driver side front wheel was rubbing the frame and the hub cost around $350 plus $150 labor.

91 suzuki side kick 4x4 manual. When I lock the hubs in, and put it into h4, the front wheels don't grab. The transfer case seems to be working fine. When I lock the passenger side hub in, you can hear the...

Hubs do quit working. Jack both front wheels off of the ground and lock the hubs but leave the transfer case in 2wd. If you spin one wheel the other should spin backwards. If not replace the hubs. If they do spin correctly, you may have a transfer case problem or a front chunk problem.
