Question about 1997 Ford F250 SuperCab

1 Answer

2001 Ford F250 Super Duty 4x4; the outer bearing for the right rear wheel axle will not slide into place. We are 100% sure it's the right bearing because we thought we had the wrong one and went to the Ford place and they said we had the right one. What would cause it not to fit it?

Is it the same as the one you took off? thats what you need to verify. If it doesnt fit. Maybe the bearing surface is deformed, it would help tremendously if you told us some history, like, why you are replacing the bearing in the first place.

Tips to remove frozen wheel bearing

forget the torch idea as it will damage the axle
bearings appear hard but in fact cut readily with an angle grinder
cut at an angle and almost all the way in
get a cold chisel and hit the cut hard and the bearing will crack and be easy to pull off

Replacing front axle seals and bearings

I replaced the left front bearings and seals a couple of months back. It is not a problem but be careful as you dismantle the system and of course the reassembly of same. Be sure to replace all bearings and seals as you probably don't want to do this job twice at the cost of parts. No special tricks and relatively easy job. 1601d678-bcb0-4cc6-af13-c2a57bf7d073.jpg

Rear axle seal leaking f250 6.0 4x4 2005

if you have a semi-floating axle ie an axle that the axle bearing is pressed on you have to remove the wheel, remove caliper if disc brakes and remove a retaining plate that holds the axle bearing in position. pull out the axle and the seal will be left in the axle housing. Replace and reverse procedures. If you have a full floating axle you have to remove the axle from the hub undo tha axle bearing nuts amnd if disc remove caliper or if drum pull the hub of the axle. The seal will be in the back of the hub as in a truck. you will need some mechanical knowledge so if you are unsure get a mechanic to advise you

I need help on my 2001 f250 for the front axle bearings and seal

Remove the wheel. Remove the two bolts at the caliper. Take a C clamp prefferbly a 6 inch type and compress the brake pads as far as they will go into the caliper.
remove the caliper
Now remove the two bolts to the calipers saddle that holds it in place
I think a 17 mm wrench will do
Now you can remove the rotor by removing the bearing cap and the rest is easy to figure out by punching out the bearing races as well as the seal
Clean thoroughly before installing the new parts

I have a ford f250 diesel 4x4 and the front axle is makeing a grinding noise any one know what that is

It sounds like you may have a wheel hub bearing going bad . Jack up front of truck and spin each tire and listen for any noise it should be quite and spinfree if you find it's bad you must replace the whole hub you can't just repair the bearing this is a common problem on the f250

A grinding noise in the front end of my 2002 f250 super duty and its not the brakes

If it is a 2 wheel drive, it is probably your wheel bearings. If it a four wheel drive, it could be the front differential, the joints on the axle shafts, the locking hubs, or the wheel bearings. On the four wheel drive, crawl under the vehicle and grab the axle shafts and see where the excess movement is. Also try grabbing the tires and see if there is any movement. There shouldn't be any movement while the wheels are on the ground.
