Once the abs wire is disconnected, the caliper is out of the way and rotor off the only thing holding the hub and bearing assembly on is the three bolts and the large axle nut... and rust. It's supposed to just slide right off with little effort, at most a slight persuasion with a hammer. I've come across an axle that was so stuck in a hub assembly a 20 ton press didn't budge it. We ended up having to cut the axle so it fit through the knuckle and replace the axle along with the hub. Hopefully yours isn't nearly that stuck.
Does the axle slide in the splines? I assume you've tried penetrating fluid and the like. If you have access to air tools I've had a lot of success using an air hammer with the right chisel between the knuckle and bearing assembly to crack it loose. If the knuckle is aluminum you will have to be real careful not to damage it though as i'm sure you know, aluminum is a soft metal.

Instructions on replace wheel bearing on 2005 f150 2wd front wheel


Johny brown is wrong.... the 2005 ford f150 2wd requires a rotor/bearing assembly it is really really easy to change...... jack it up remove wheel, 18 mm wrench to remove caliper mount... then remove spindle cotterpin and nylon nut (26mm? ) with any luck the rotor/bearing /hub will pull right off ...if not a make shift lever/puller should do the trick.... I actually had a bearing frozen on the spindle that i used heat and a small 3 jaw puller to get the bearing free.... if everything goes smoothly you should be done in less then 30 min

How to replace front wheel bearing


Jack up vehicle, use jack stands for safety. Remove wheel, brake caliper, axle nut, brake caliper bracket, rotor. Remove wheel hub bearing bolts, unplug speed/abs sensor, remove bad assy. Good idea to clean up any corrosion on spindle where bearing mounts and use anti seize in case you have to replace again down the road. Sometimes it is a pain to get bearing assy. loose from spindle because of corrosion. Reverse order of dissassembly and use manuf. suggested torque for reassembly.

Hi haw can i change my wile Bering?


Park the car on level ground. Put the transmission in park and set the parking brake. Jack the car up and place the jack stands underneath the frame of the car.

Use the tire iron to remove the lug nuts from the wheel and pull the wheel off.

Use the ratchet set to remove the mounting screws on the disc brake caliper. Pull the caliper loose and then slide the disc off of the wheel studs.

Use the ratchet to loosen and remove the wheel hub mounting bolts located on the backside of the steering spindle.

Pull the entire wheel hub assembly off of the steering spindle. Take the assembly to a machine shop and have them use a hydraulic press to press out your bearing (the bearing is pressed into the hub assembly and is too big for at-home extraction).

Press in the new wheel bearings and then reassemble the wheel hub by mounting it on the steering spindle again.

Slide the disc back into place on the wheel studs and then remount the caliper with the mounting bolts. Slide the wheel back in place on the studs and tighten down the lug nuts in a star pattern.

Lower the car off of the jack stands or move on to change the other side's wheel bearings as well.

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.

I need instructions on how to replace rear wheel bearings on my 1994 Honda Civic


Bearings are pressed into the hubs...much easier, faster and economical (if you don't have a press) to replace the complete bearing/hub assembly, no pressing is needed, since bearings are already pressed into the new hubs. Cost..aprox, 60 buxs each.
Here are the steps for the rear replacement...
Loosen the lug nuts on a rear wheel. 2) Chock the wheels and jack the rear of the car on the side with the lug nuts that you just loosened. 3) Remove the wheel by removing the lug nuts. 4) Pry open the dust cap covering the center of the axle/spindle. A small screwdriver tapped into the space between the hub and dust cap will work well for this. 5) With the dust cap now removed, use a thin center punch to straighten the little dent in the rim of the spindle nut so that you will be able to turn it freely in the next step. 6) Use a 32mm socket and a large breaker-bar to loosen the spindle nut. Unscrew the nut all the way and place it in a clean, safe area. 7) You should now be able to slide the hub/bearing assembly from the shaft. 8) Installation is the reverse of removal. Use plenty of high-temperature wheel bearing grease on all surfaces before you mount the replacement hub assembly.

IMPORTANT: Torque the spindle nut to 134 ft/lbs....(per manual specs)

When reinstalling the dust caps, tap them gently into place to avoid denting them...Install wheels, jack her down and pat yourself on the back...job complete.
Good luck..hope this will fixya up...please take time to leave me a fixya rateing...

Rear Wheel Bearing Repair; 2005 pontiac aztek


Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

Front wheel bearing 2004 escape 4x4


It's nearly impossible unless you have a good air compressor and a powerful 1/2" or larger drive impact gun.The reason is you have to remove the cv axle nut and axle out of the way before removing the bearing and hub.The axle nut requires a couple hundred foot pounds to remove.The procedure is:Jack vehicle safely off the ground,remove wheel and tire.Remove axle retaining nut.Remove balljoint nut and bolt,pry down on lower control arm,and disengage balljoint and lower arm from spindle.Now the axle can be released from the hub,but leave the other end of the axle in the trans,just set off to the side out of the way.At this point,there are two ways to change the bearing.The wheel bearing is a double roller,cartridge type with the hub containg the wheel studs,pressed into the bearing.Remove the entire spindle assembly from the suspension strut,OR leave the spindle attached to the strut,and remove the bearing and hub from the spindle.Some guys swear by taking the spindle to a press,and pressing the bearing assembly out with a bottle jack.I just use a bushing driver set,and ball peen hammer,and remove the hub from the bearing...then remove the snap ring retaing the bearing in the spindle,then drive the bearing out of the spindle with the hammer and drivers.There you have it.Reverse procedure for reassembly
