It has a nylon retainer ring that melts in as its tightens when you remove it you lose the locking capability of the old nut so you should use a new 1 . good luck .

Spindle nut. Tighten the nut to 185 ft. lbs. (251 Nm). Inch pounds is not an option, this critical torque spec is FT lbs.

How to change front hub assembly on 05 mustang


Remove tire/wheel. (5 nuts)
Seperate the brake pads just a little; pry apart with a screw driver. Easier to remove and replace later.
Remove caliper/brake assembly (2 bolts). Do NOT remove brake line.
Remove brake rotor (there may be a retainer clip or two that needs to be removed and discarded.
Remove black center cap (after reading warning on the cap).
Remove large spindle nut.
Slide bearing/hub assembly off the spindle. (If stuck, you may have to tap it with a hammer. It's a straight smooth shaft.

Reassemble in reverse order.
Tighten the nut to the correct torque spec. I don't know what it is, but it's pretty high... 200ft-lbs? The torque is important because it sets the preload on the bearing balls and races. Too low or torque will cause early bearing failure.

Bearing/hub looks like this:

Left front hub replacement 2WD.


2WD pickups don't have hubs. They have rotors with bearings. Once you have the brake assembly supported, remove nut from spindle. Be sure not to strip the threads on the spindle. Remove the front set of bearings and pull the rotor off. Remove the rear set of bearings. Be sure to pack greases into new bearings prior to installation. Insert new rear bearing into rotor and replace onto spindle. Insert new front bearing and washer and re-install nut. Tighten to recommended torque specs, grease fittings and replace brake assembly.

Am am replacing the wheel bearing hub assembly on a 2001 dodge dakota 4x2. How many pounds of torque do i aply to the spindle nut when replacing?


understandably you want to do things right. i do this job by tightening the nut with channel lock pliers, spinning the rotor, and loosening the nut just til loose and then snug. reinstall the castle washer and then a new cotter pin (if available). make sure there is no lateral play(up and down). you should be good to go. happy holidays

Failed state inspection...front rotors need replaced


Remove the wheels, then on the back side of the rotor will be two bolts holding the caliper on. Remove them, then there will be two more bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket on, remove those, and the bracket. The rotors will slide off. If you have never had the brakes done there will be two metal washers holding the rotor on to the studs, cut them off with a chisel. They are only there to hold the rotors on during assembly line operations. Good Luck

How to take out and reinstall new axle on 1996 toyota corolla,


1. Jack up and support car on jack stand. Make sure to chock wheels and or lock the parking brake on.
2. Remove wheel
3. Remove cotter key, castle lock and nut at center of rotor that attaches the axle. - If you lack and impact gun to remove this - it is easier to loosen this nut with all of the wheels on the ground.
4. Remove outer tie rod from spindle, Tap out with hammer. Should not require much force.
5. Remove the single bolt from the lower ball joint and separate from spindle.
6. Pull axle out of spindle and remove from transmission. This may require you to drive this out with a hammer and punch ( I use a brass punch), make sure not to damage threads if you intend to reuse the axle.

To install reverse the procedure. Make sure to replace any cotter key removed with new ones during install.

Torque specs you need are

Ball Joint to Spindle = 91 ftlbs
Tie rod to spindle = 36 ftlbs
Drive axle hub nut = 166 ftlbs
