What is the foot pounds for the front wheel bearings on a 1995 chrysler cirrus
Hello, If you Chrysler has replaceable wheel bearings and seal. This is the way
it goes---pack the wheel bearing with new grease-install the bearing in the
wheel nub--install new back wheel seal--coat the axle shaft with grease lightly,
thing coat-----install wheel hub on to axle shaft...be careful here don't damage
the rear hub seal------------insert front race washer---install axle shaft
nut--tighten nut down wheel nut until it is firm with water pump pliers----spin
the hub/with tire mounted.
(the wheel and hub will turn but not freely)----take the pliers and back off
the axle nut 1/4 turn----now spin the wheel and axle hub, it should spin
freely---now if doesn't spin freely---back off the axle nut about 1/16 or 1/32
(or just a little bit)-----now, spin the wheel and hub and if turn
freely------------Now grab the top of the wheel/tire and move it back and
forth.-----if there is some movement ---try tighten the axle nut just a little
little bit, unit the one can barely feel some little movement in the wheel/tire and hub.-----------Now, spin the
wheel/tire and hub and it should also turn freely.
If it does----install new and correct size of cotter pin and bent the ends
around the axle nut.----
coat the inside of the hub cup with grease. Now, use an rubber or plastic
hammer to install the cup on the wheel/tire hub. You are finished with one wheel
bearing maintenance. Now do the other side.
I really don't know if you Chrysler Cirrus has replaceable wheel bearing. All
the auto/trucks have replaceable hubs, that means that the replacement is total
hub with axle shaft, sealed bearings, and seals. This is bolt to each wheel
steering hub. This work to remove these one unit hubs.
Four bolts hold the axle hub to the steering hub. Hear is the problem!! it
has rusted to the steering hub. Also, these hubs cost more than replacing
bearings, races, seals to cool turn of $180 to $250+ I wish you luck in your
replacement of wheel bearing on your Chrysler. GB..stewbison
