Noise front left wheel


You don't describe the noise, but if it isn't the wheel bearing, and if it is not the brake rotor, it is most likely the outer CV Joint.

How to change a rear wheel bearing on a 2004 ford taurus???


How to Replace Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly on a 2nd generation Taurus

The following procedure is for a Ford Taurus (VIN S), with rear drum brakes and ABS.

1. Loosen wheel lug nuts, raise rear of vehicle, and support securely on jack stands. Block front wheels and remove rear wheels.

2. Remove brake drum (parking brake must be off).

3. Remove and clean ABS Sensor (Torx E8) with a spritzled rag.

4. Remove grease cap from hub.

5. Remove and discard hub retaining nut (36 mm). This is a compound nut, comprised of several nuts inside a metal cage. Use a 36 mm axle nut socket (e.g., OEM 25206). Many auto parts stores will lend you this socket. A 1/2-inch drive air impact wrench or breaker bar is necessary to remove the nut.

6. Remove wheel bearing/hub assembly from spindle. It easily comes off by hand.

7. Install new Timken Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly, for Drum Brakes and ABS (Part No. 512162). Tighten new axle spindle nut (Dorman 05114) 221 lb.-ft., replace grease cap, and button everything up.

Instructions on replace wheel bearing on 2005 f150 2wd front wheel


Johny brown is wrong.... the 2005 ford f150 2wd requires a rotor/bearing assembly it is really really easy to change...... jack it up remove wheel, 18 mm wrench to remove caliper mount... then remove spindle cotterpin and nylon nut (26mm? ) with any luck the rotor/bearing /hub will pull right off ...if not a make shift lever/puller should do the trick.... I actually had a bearing frozen on the spindle that i used heat and a small 3 jaw puller to get the bearing free.... if everything goes smoothly you should be done in less then 30 min

I think I need to change to change a wheel bearing on the front driver side of my 2006 Taurus. Is this a press fit or is this something I could do?


it should be a press in fit.
the shaft only goes thru and a nut holds it in place
the bearing is pressed in with a floor press.

How do I replace the front wheel bearing in a 1995 ford taurus?


first off, sell the car and by another one, ford taurus is a very dear car to fix, let alone the wheel bearing will cost more then 2 tanks of gas, otherwise it is not an easy home doing job, you need special circlip pliers, a hammer at least a 3 tonne hydraulic press and a good eye for line up, most mechanics will do this but it is a bit hard to remove the actual wheel bearing if you never have done one. remember if the wheel bearing is one millimeter off it will grind like hell.

Front wheel bearings replacment in a 2003 ford taurus


since this is a front wheel drive car i wouldnt really advise doing this by yourself unless youv done stuff like that before. I would say its not so much difficult as it is tedious work and requires some time to complete.
