If you are talking about wheel bearings, the trick is to go to AutoZone of some place of that sort and rent a puller. Then you may have the problem of removing the old race and installing a new one along with the bearing. I think that I would invest in a Haynes manual for your specific auto while you are at autozone. It will indicate the procedure, and probably tell you the required tools.
Hope this helps

How do I change rear wheel bearings on my 1992 GMC Safari van

Put the rear up on jack stands and remove the wheels and brake drums. Then unbolt the rear differential cover and drain the gear oil. Then, you remove the pinion securing bolt. DO NOT ROTATE THE WHEELS AS THIS CAN CAUSE THE PINION GEARS TO FALL OUT. Push the rear axle shaft inward toward the vehicle and remove the "C" clip that secures the axle to the pinion gears. Then pull the axle shaft outward and out of the axle housing. Inspect the axle shaft for scuffing and excessive wear on the place where the wheel bearings rest. If there is excessive wear, you can use a "repair bearing", which is modified to install so it runs on an unworn part of the axle shaft. Otherwise a regular replacement bearing is fine. You need a slide hammer removal tool to extract the old bearing from the axle housing, and a bearing install tool to insert the new one without damage. Once the new bearing is in, reinsert the axle shaft, secure with the "C" clip, and pull outward to latch the "C" clip into its recess. Install the pinion bolt. Reinstall the differential cover with appropriate gasket or sealer. Fill differential with approved gear oil in the recommended amount. Ensure that if the rear is a positraction rear end there may be an additive required to the gear oil for proper operation.

Is it worth it to fix a 99 F250 SD that has a rear main seal blown on the engine?

Until the engine is sealed you will not know how much oil is burned. Price the parts. Difference too in whether its a 4x4 or easy access 2 wheel drive.

Check rear seal type to see if it can be changed by pulling trans and flywheel. If stick shift, probably good idea to replace clutch disc to verify not oil soaked. If automatic, oil is no consequence.

Kind of matters how much is wrong. With trans out, some rear engine seals can be replaced without removing oil pan. But if bearings are bad, on 2 wheel drive you may be able to squeeze off oil pan and check bottom of bearings.

You can do poor man's bearing job with plastic-gage. Rod bearings can probable be switched 100%. Main bearings lower cap can be serviced with upper 1/2 left in place. Not ideal, but can save from pulling motor.

Value depends on whether your Labor is free. You have a 14 Year ol truck. Depends on what you already replaced to maintain it or what else it will need. You could need rings after working on the bottom end even with a poor man's bearing job. Plastic Gage can tell you the size you need for each bearing. Then keep track and only buy individual sizes.

If you could find a wrecked truck with a good engine, places like have a good multilist. Rule of thumb is different for each person. I would look hard at spending 1/2 of what truck is worth to fix it, knowing other things are wrong.

There's a loud humming sound coming from inside the back of the mountaineer. Could this be my wheel bearings or what?

It's very possible they are pretty common. Here's something you can try. With the front wheels chalked so the vehicle cannot roll forwards or backward place the transmission in neutral. Jack the rear wheels off the ground. Grab the tires by the six and twelve o'clock position and push and pull. If you feel movement your on the right track with bad wheel bearings. Another thing you can do is spin the wheel s by hand. If you can hear the bearing humming it is bad. Everyone and a while you will get one that is almost impossible to tell. In this case I will separate the knuckle from the rear suspension and spin the hubs/bearings by hand. You know right away I'f it is bad. these bearings are pressed into the knuckle. You will need to remove the knuckle and either lay a machine shop or auto shop to press the old bearing out and the new bearing in. You will not be able to do it without a press or a tool called a hub shark.

Looking for diagram and instructions on replaceing rear main shaft bearing on 1988 700r4 iremoved tail shaft cover can shaft bearing be removed from back of tanny or do ihave to pull whole assembly out...

If you have a failure of the rear main bearing, replacing it will not resolve the issue. Something went wrong, and you need to find and repair that. Perhaps oiling based issues....

If the bearing failed, there is usually cap damage. This is the block and cap that hold the bearing.

Really, you cannot correctly fix these issues without the engine out and disassembled. There are machining processes that need to happen, like align boring, and clearance measurements.

How do you change rear bearing on 2000 safari?

The rear axle bearing? I'm going to presume that's the bearing you're talking about and not the rear main bearing, so please take that into consideration if you would

You're going to have to jack up the rear of the van, remove the tire and drum. Then you have to place a drain pan under the rear differential and remove the cover. After the cover is removed spin the rear axle (the one with the tire off) to locate the pin in the very center of the differential. On the right side you will see an 8mm (5/16) bolt head.

When you remove the locking bolt (the 8mm) and slide the pin out DO NOT SPIN THE AXLE WITHOUT THE CENTER PIN IN PLACE. Push in on the axle with the bearing to be replaced and a "C" clip will fall out of the differential. SLIDE THE CENTER PIN BACK IN and screw in the locking bolt a few turns. Once the "C" clip slips out, you can pull the axle out. If you don't have a bearing puller, it's best to rent one. Insert the bearing puller and pop the bearing out.

Removing and replacing rear bearing on the 1997 Toyoto Tacoma.

You are going to need the services of a professional machine shop.

The rear wheel bearing is pressed on. You cannot change the bearing without a press. If you try this, without a press, you will damage the new bearing, and the axle.

Please save yourself some money, and take it to a machine shop.

Need to know how to remove rear axle bearing

Remove the differential cover let fluid drain. While draining remove the tire on the side with the bad bearing. Remove the brake drum. remove the spider gears if it has a open diff. If not an open diff you will need to get a book at a parts house about $20. After removing spider gears remove the axle C-clip then pull the axle out. You will need a bearing seperator to remove the bearing. An oldschool trick for installing the new bearing with out a press is to stick the axle in a freezer for about 2 hours about 30 minutes before removing the axle put the bearing in an oven at 350 degrees (wear gloves when getting the bearing out) Quickly remove the axle and then remove the bearing and immediatly install the bearing it should drop onto the axle right where the old bearing was I like to take a puch and tat the inside of the bearing to make sure it has seated all the way.
Any questions please let me know
Have a great day
