Loosen the rear lug nuts, jack up the car, remove the rear wheels, remove the brake drums, remove the brake shoes and hardware, remove the 4 bolts holding the hubs in. Bolt in the new hubs, reassemble the brake shoes and hard ware, put the brake drums on, put the wheels on and snug the lug nuts, lower the car, tighten the lug nuts.

VDC OFF Light and slip light????


Had the same problem.. After replacing 2 ABS rear sensors with no luck the dealer found that the wheel hub was bad. Somehow one of the teeth inside the wheel hub got bent and was sending a faulty signal that most mechanics try to fix by just changing the sensor. The kicker is that if you buy the entire wheel hub it comes with the sensor and costs less than if you buy the senor alone. Also you have to take off the old hub to replace the sensor anyway when your dealing with the rear sensor. Once the hub was changed no problems.

How do i get rear hub off to change brakes


First make sure that you block your front tires and that your emergency brake is off. You then should be able to take a hammer and tap (strongly) the hub and use a small pry bar or big flat head screw driver and pry off the hub. If the hub still proves to be stubborn than there is a brake adjustment tool that you can purchase that you will use to back off the tension on your rear brakes.

If you still can't get the hub off then call all of your local big chain auto stores and see if you can borrow a universal wheel hub puller/ rear brake drum remover tool. There is one that loans tools for free (AZ).

Change rear bearing on a 2001 Nissan Sentra


Most newer cars have a bearing that is pressed in to the hub. In order to do the repair you should have to replace the entire hub. This is actually easier and cleaner because the bearings are lubed, sealed and pressed in the hub. They usually cost around $30 and should be available through your local parts store. In most cases the hub is held on by a large nut so I recommend that you make sure you have a socket that is large enough.

How to remove a rear hub assembly bearing on a 99 honda accord 4 cly 2.3.


acdf6cf.gif



The rear wheel bearing and hub unit are replaced as a unit.
  1. With the vehicle on the ground, loosen the spindle nut.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support it safely.
  3. Remove the rear wheels.
  4. Remove the brake disc retaining screws.
  5. Unbolt the brake hose brackets from the knuckle.
  6. Remove the caliper bracket mounting bolts and hang the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire.
  7. Remove the brake disc. If the disc is frozen on the hub, screw two 8 x 1.25mm bolts evenly into the disc to push it away from the hub.
  8. Remove the spindle nut and pull the hub unit off of the spindle.

Clean the backing plate and the mating surfaces of the brake disc and hub with brake cleaner. Clean the spindle, washer, and hub with solvent.
To install:
  1. Inspect the hub unit for signs of damage or wear. If the bearings are worn, the entire unit must be replaced.
  2. Install the hub unit and spindle washer onto the spindle. Install the spindle nut but do not tighten it.
  3. Install the brake disc and tighten the retaining screws to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
  4. Install the brake caliper and tighten the mounting bolts to 28 ft. lbs. (39 Nm). Install the brake hose brackets onto the knuckle and tighten the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. Install the rear wheels and lower the vehicle.
  6. With the vehicle on the ground, tighten the new spindle nut to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm), then stake the nut with a punch.
  7. Tighten the wheel nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
  8. Test the operation of the brakes.

ADJUSTMENT

The wheel bearings are not adjustable or repairable and should be replaced if found defective.

Thanks for using FixYa!!
