Most times you can squirt some wd40 on the ends of the axle spline, then put the axle nut on backwards so the castellated side is towards the bearing hub and run it onto the threads till the axle and nut are flush. (So you don't damage the threads or mushroom the end of the axle.) Once you have done that you can give it a really hard shot with a decent sledge hammer (two lb or heavier) striking it as squarely as possible. I have never had one refuse to come apart when I do this!!!

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee limited when I am driving there is a humming/growling sound that comes from the front drivers side. It seems that it is almost draging the vehicle? Would this problem be a wheel...


cv joints don't always click, mainly they click when turning, But worn ones will also make noise,, since you have to remove the wheel anyway ,, I'd check the bearing first, then move onto the cv joints

Noise on the right front wheel when turning left . This only happens when the car is already running for about 15 min. When it´s cold ( running only for 5 min for ex. ) it does´t happen!...


Three things that can cause noise there: worn brake pad touching the rotor, bad hub bearing or bad c/v joint...brake pad is easy to see by removing the wheel and looking at them, c/v joint generally has a torn boot that has permitted dirt to enter joint causing failure. Bearing is a bit more difficult to diagnose because it's a large heavy bearing and you can't push on it with the load that your vehicle can. ANY slight binding or roughness you notice there is a sign of failure. If everything else is fine, that's usually what the problem is

yes,they should pull out with a little effort,they have an internal lock ring on the shaft,if they don't pull out you may have to use a pry bar between the inner joint and the case to pry it out.

RELACING WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 95 JEEP GRAND


Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly
