Most vehicles don't require the removal of the center nut. I have had many a car that the rotors are simply rusted on. I've taken a hammer to them and still no budge. I would soak it with some PB blaster a few times and let it sit overnight. Retry in the morning with a hammer.

How to remove front wheel hub on 2006 pacifica ?


Hi Eric, I'm glad to help. First remove both front wheels. Then press the caliper back just a little so its easier to remove off the rotor. CAUTION: "DO NOT" let the caliper hang by the brake hose, this can cause problems with your brakes, hang it up, or lay it somewhere so its supported. NEXT: Remove the rotor, then remove the cotter key and NUT that holds the axle in place. NEXT: Remove the wheel speed sensor from the hub. NEXT: You'll need to push back on the axle so that you have enough clearance to get to the HUB BOLTS behind it. Remove the 3 bolts that hold the HUB in place, the tap the hub outward from the vehicle. Once out replace the new one in reverse procedure. CAUTION: After everything is back in place you need to pump the brakes so they will press the rotors again, failure to do this will cause an accident. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Eric.

How to replace front passenger wheel hub on 1991 lincoln continental


This is not a bolt on hub but rather a press on hub, the wheel bearing will need replacing also, remove wheel, remove the caliper and hang off to side, next remove the brake rotor, next is to remove the axle nut. a matter of fact you without power tools should do this first,before even removing the wheel use a big rachet and pipe for leverage, remove the axle nut first. with axle nut removed,brake caliper hanging off to side and rotor off. next you will discconnect tierod from spindle and remove nut from lower ball joint, sperate balljoint from spindle. next remove bolts from strut to spindle. note if you have abs make sure to dissconnect wire before trying to remove spindle, with strut bolts out remove spindle. at this point i wouls say a press is needed, take to your local shop and ask them to replace the hub. heres a picture of the hub asm. hope this helps you. good day.2_20_2012_12_26_43_am.jpg

Replace left front axle seal


First you'll have to remove the axle shaft, and here's detailed directions so use whatever info you need. First you'll need to jack up your vehicle place your jack just behind the front lower control arm mount. Take off your tire/wheel, remove the cotter pin and the axle nut retainer, remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts, move the caliper out of the way and support it so it doesn't just hang by the brake hose. Now, slide your rotor off, next you'll need to remove the axle nut and at 180ft lbs of torque you'll need a breaker bar or a heavy duty impact. The nut should be a 36mm if I remember correctly. Remove the bolts holding hub to steering knuckle, remove hub now you can tap it with a hammer to help loosen it from splines on axle shaft. take off the dust cover, pull the axle shaft out now, take out your bad oil seal, grease splines, then install new seal, carefully reinstall axle shaft to avoid damaging the seal, reverse steps and you're good to go. Good luck with your repair

Need to change a front wheel bearing...is it hard to do myself?


moz-screenshot-2.png-Jack up the car
-remove the tire, 19mm socket
-remove the brake caliper, its either an 18mm or 15mm socket that will remove the bracket bolts.
-remove the rotor
-remove the axle nut, its either a 34 or 36 mm
-unplug ABS sensor connector if equipped
-remove the three bolts that hold the bearing/hub assembly to the knuckle, a 13mm socket will work
Remove the wheel bearing.

It is important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to fail. you will need a 1/2" torque wrench for this.

To make removing and installing the axle nut easier place a punch in the fins of the rotor and rotate the rotor until the punch rests on the caliper (it doesn't hurt to put a couple lug nuts on to hold the caliper tight to the hub). This will hold the hub in place while you looses and tighten the axle nut.

How to replace front rotor on 2005 pontiac vibe?I have removed caliper and caliper bracket do I need to remove axle nut and if so how?


once the caliper and bracket are removed, the rotors should just come off. These are hat style rotors and just slip over the hub. They do have a tendency to rust on, sometimes hitting them with a hammer between the studs will break them loose. some rotors have threaded holes between teh wheel studs that you can screw a bolt into to break them free.

How to change CV joint mazda 323 mod 1991


In order to change the cv joint, you will need to remove the wheel and the brake caliper and rotor. Raise vehicle on jack stands. Remove the wheel and remove the brake pads and caliper. Tie the caliper up out of the way, do not disconnect the brake line attached. Once the caliper is removed, slide the rotor off. Using the correct size socket, remove the nut in center of hub. Some vehicles have a kotter pin in the shaft just in front of nut. If so, remove pin before nut. Next, you will need to loosen a few bolts that hold the strut to the hub assembly. Once you have hub free from strut, turn the hub either left or right while having someone push in on the cv joint while turning joint left or right. Doing so will allow the joint to slide out of hub. Next, using a pry bar, insert between end of transaxle and transmission and pry out. To install new axle, align the axle with transmission and slide into transmission. Carefully work the other end of axle into the center of the hub assembly. Once you have it in the hub, tap gently with a rubber mallet until you hear it "pop" into transmission. Once it is in transmission, replace the bolts connecting the hub to strut. Replace nut on center or cv joint and tighten just until it seats against the hub...do not overtighten. Replace kotter pin with new pin. Slide the rotor over the studs, replace caliper and brake pads, install wheel and you are done.
