Take off the wheel, remove the brake caliper, remove the hub, remove the pin and nut. Now you are ready to remove the wheel rotor. Usually have to pry the bearing out with a screwdriver or tap out with hammer. Purchase an inner race and bearing, and seal. Pack the bearing with packing grease, re-insert the bearing, apply the seal, place the rotor back on the spindle, replace the nut and pin, place the hub back on. Probably a good idea to do the opposite side as these rarely fail separately. ALWAYS block the tires and use a jack stand! I failed to do so once and had my Tahoe fall on me pinching my fingers between the jack and vehicle body for almost an hour.

This job should take about two hours for both of your front tires. Make sure you have a bud fo back-up in case you get the wrong parts. Nothing worse than broke down and not having correct parts.
GOOD LUCK, YOU CAN DO IT!

It would be best if you let a shop fix there are some special tools needed that the shops should have.

Hey codycarroll, if it makes you feel better; I did the same thing, my audi fell off the jack and the brake rotor(with the weight of the car on it) landed on my foot and then rested there....not fun for the next 2 minutes of extreme panic and pain!

Left front passenger side cv joint for 1990 quattro has noise, is it easy to fix


Can be a messy job. Is the flexible rubber boot over surrounding the joint split and spewing forth oily muck. Remove wheel cover and bearing oil cap in the middle. slacken the wheel bearing nut a turn or so. Jack the car until the wheel is off the ground and remove the wheel. Remove the bearing nut and push (tap with wooden block the drive shaft inwards to disconnect it from the hub. Try turning the steering wheel if the shaft does not go back all the way to allow the stub to be released. You may have to undo the track rod end to give you extra clearance. Remove the split boot (gaiter) and wash the bearing clean of all oil and dirt with petrol so that you can inspect it thoroughly. The stub axle should also come free of the tripod ended drive shaft. If the metal shows bad signs of wear you will need to replace the bearing assembly. Repair kits for the replacement of boots contain packs of appropriate grease. To get the boot on easily you will need to have access to a boot cone tool. The wide end fits over the joint with the narrow end away from it. Lube the end of the narrow end of the boot and slip it over the narrow end of the cone. By forcing it along the cone the narrow end spreads wide enough to clear the joint and sit back down on the drive shaft. Fill the joint with new grease and seal the boot ends with a crimping tool. Wear neoprene gloves at all times as this is one filthy job

How do you replace front wheel bearings on a 1998 audi a4 quattro with a 2.8 liter?


If you want to replace it manually, you have to release all the air out of the tire. Then you got to use like a crow bar or something flat, it's like taking off a bike tire. If you know what I'm talking about. Try pushing on the tire to remove it from the wheel. Then on from there its pretty common sense. Hope this helps!?
Please rate solution - Thanks.

98 audi a4 quattro 2.8 liter


Wheel bearing maybe, if you just did your brakes, the heat sheild behind the rotor is probably rubbing, take the wheels off and spin the wheel and then look behind it, should be easy to find. I assume you did it the right way with pads and new rotors :).

1996 Audi A4 Quattro has a noisy rear differential


It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.

1996 Audi A6 Quattro has a noisy rear differential


Can you give some more information about this? Is it only when your speed is up at highway speed levels, or do you hear it at lower speeds too? Does it ever get louder or quieter under any driving conditions or maneuvers? The reason I ask is that it could actually be a rear wheel bearing (they're known to go bad on this generation of Audis - heck, I just changed one on my A4 last week and now that it's quiet, I can hear the other rear bearing starting to go). If you can give some more info on this problem, we can try to narrow it down.
