Front hub nut is 265 lbs at final , I usually take it to around 100 lbs on the first go and assemble the brakes ... then when the wheel is back on the ground I will finish the torque off at 265 lbs. If you don't have a torque wrench that goes that high put a 44 mm socket on a breaker bar with a 3 foot extension and stand on it... that will get you close.

Replace front right wheel bearing

This is a hub and bearing assy. You will need to remove the axle nut, brake rotor, caliper assy. There are 3 or 4 bolts that attach the hub assy to the knuckle assy. Most of the time, the hub assy will come out easy and sometime it comes out very hard. Make sure you torque the axle nut to the proper spec, so the bering will not fall apart and will last. Buy a quality hub and bearing assy, so you dont have to do it again.

Removing hub assembly on 2001 dodge grand caravan 3.3L 2wd

Remove the axle nut. Place a punch in the fins of the rotor to lock the hub in place when the punch hits the caliper. Remove the caliper and rotor. Unplug the abs sensor Remove the three bolts holding the hub assembly to the knuckle. Remove the hub assembly from the knuckle. It is vitally important to torque the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do this will cause the barring to fail quickly! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

How do i remove the hub assembly from the front wheel of my 2001 dodge ram RWD?

  • Jack up your Dodge Ram. Block the wheels to keep it from rolling as you work. Get started by removing the first tire and wheel assembly. Remove the hub extension and the brake caliper as well as the caliper adapter.
  • Remove the grease cap, cotter pin, nut lock, nut, washer and outer wheel bearing. Now, pull the old rotor off of the spindle. Clean the area with a damp cloth to remove any debris. Pack the wheel bearings with grease.
  • Install the new rotor and hub onto the spindle. Replace the outer wheel bearing, washer, and then the retaining nut. Torque the nut to 30 to 40 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub and rotor. Then tighten the nut and install the nut lock and a new cotter pin.
  • Clean the grease cap and then coat it with new wheel bearing grease and replace the cap. Put the caliper adapter back into place and then tighten the two mounting bolts with a torque wrench. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  • Repeat this process for each additional rotor and then lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts and test drive your Dodge Ram to make sure that the installation was successful.

    How do I replace right front wheel bearings on 1999 Dodge Dekota?


    It is a whole hub assembly. You remove the pin and unbolt the hub assembly and replace.

    What is needed is to raise your truck and support it with jack stands ( no concrete blocks) then remove the brake caliper and pads, be sure to support the caliper with mechanic's wire or what you have on hand that will do the job.

    Then remove the brake rotor "hat" then remove the cotter key then the hub retainer nut and remove the hub. The new hubs are greased so just replace the hub torque, install new cotter key the rotor hat and pads and caliper.

    I hope this helps.

    How do I remove the rotor on my 1995 dodge 2500 4x4? My problem in the center cap holding it.

    Brake Disc (Rotor) REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    1. Raise and safely support the front of the truck with jackstands. Remove the front wheel.
    2. Remove the caliper assembly and support it to the frame with a piece of wire without disconnecting the brake fluid hose.
    3. Remove the hub and rotor assembly.
    4. Install the rotor in the reverse order of removal, and adjust the wheel bearing as outlined in Section 1.
    INSPECTION If the rotor is deeply scarred or has shallow cracks, it may be refinished on a disc brake rotor lathe. Also, if the lateral run-out exceeds 0.010 in. (0.25mm) within a 6 in. (152mm) radius when measured with a dial indicator, with the stylus 1 in. (25mm) in from the edge of the rotor, the rotor should be refinished or replaced. A maximum of 0.020 in. (0.5mm) of material may be removed equally from each friction surface of the rotor. If the damage cannot be corrected when the rotor has been machined to the minimum thickness shown on the rotor, it should be replaced. The finished braking surfaces of the rotor must be parallel within 0.007 in. (0.178mm) and lateral run-out must not be more than 0.003 in. (0.076mm) on the inboard surface in a 5 in. (127mm) radius. Fig. 1: Use a dial indicator and micrometer to check the rotor for run-out and thickness 88479g83.gif

    Im trying to replace the rotors and im having a Hard time getting it off. HELP

    You might want to spray some WD-40 around the center of the rotor and the wheel lugs. Usually on Honda's, the rotors will have 2 threaded holes to put in bolts. Screw in each bolt equally to help push the rotor away from the hub.

    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

    Need to remove and replace rear rotor

    You have to remove the axle shafts first as it has a full-floating axle, then pull rotor and hub off the axle housing. Unbolt rotors from hub. Check bearings and seals in hubs and the axle snouts where the bearings run before installing. Put new flange gaskets on axle and torque flange bolts to 95 ft-lbs.

    Front brakes

    Hi there;
    To replace the front rotors on your truck you will need to remove the hub & bearings, yes, how-ever you should not have to replace the bearings. If you take it a-part & find there is metal filings inside, then you would want to. But if the grease is only dirty you should just clean off all the old grease & repack your bearings.

    Word of caution: If you are not familiar with repacking & adjusting wheel bearings you may want to consult a local gaurage for a demonstration as if you do not do it properly you can cause a lot of damage to you & your truck.

    Having said that, once you get the hub off you will see that the rotor is bolted to the hub. remove the bolts, install the new rotors & install & torque the bolts.
    Hope this helps
