How can I press the hub and bearing into the hub assembly ? Do you have an illustration ?


-This can be done at any machine shop. Or you can do it if you have a 10 to 20 tone overhead press.


Good Luck

How to change a front wheel bearing on a 2007 toyota tacoma 2 wheel drive pickup truck


The bearing & hub is a whole assembly for this model, start by removing the brake calipers, the removing the rotors" a couple taps with the hammer should loosen it" , after removing the rotors the hub & bearing assembly is held on by 4 #17 bolts, after you get the hud and bearing assembly off you will need a tool called a bearing split plate ,to split the hub and bearing off each other. Now you should have the new bearing assembly ,inner wheel seal, and hub set together" this is when you need a press". Press the hub onto the new bearing assembly.And thats it! Its ready to go back on the way you took it off.

Hubs


You need to replace the bearing / hub assembly . The play in the bearing and hub is what is making the noise . Unaddressed ( not repaired) can cause you to loose control of the truck and even roll over if if you loose the whole wheel and hub assembly.

How do I change the front wheel bearings on my Honda? I tried to do it before, but the whole axle assy seemed to want to come apart! is this normal? Any help will be appreciated.


Yes. the whole axle assembly has to come apart. This is the way it is with front wheel drive. The bearing assembly simply bolts to the steering knuckle on your vehicle. This at least makes it do-able (it can be done without a press). However, you will have to press (or knock) the hub assembly out of the bearing. This can be done with a hub puller adapter and a large slide hammer. Pull the hub out of the bearing before removing the steering knuckle. It makes life a whole lot easier. Then remove the steering knuckle so you can remove the bolts securing the bearing assembly. Then you will have to beat the bearing assembly out of the steering knuckle. (They can get pretty stuck!)

Right front wheel bearing is bad how do I change it


  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely. Place jackstands under the frame, then lower the vehicle slightly to allow the control arms to hang free.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning, then remove the hub/drive axle nut. Clean the threads of the nut.
    1. Unfasten the caliper mounting bolts, then remove and support the caliper aside with a suitable piece of wire.
    2. Remove the rotor by sliding it from the hub.
    3. If equipped with ABS, detach the front wheel speed sensor connector and unclip it from the dust shield.

    The hub and bearing are replaced only as an assembly.
    For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
  4. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub from the halfshaft.
  5. Remove the hub and bearing retaining bolts, shield, hub and bearing assembly and the O-ring.
  6. Separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle, using the proper tool.
  7. Remove the halfshaft assembly and tap the seal from the steering knuckle. Remove the steering knuckle from the hub.
  8. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Unfasten the hub and bearing retaining bolts and dust shield.
    2. Place the transaxle in PARK.
    3. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub and bearing from the drive axle.
    4. If necessary, remove the steering knuckle.

  9. Clean the rust and foreign material from the knuckle mounting face, bore and chamfer to allow the bearing to properly seat in the knuckle.
To install:
  1. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. If removed, install the steering knuckle.
    2. Position the hub and bearing assembly to the drive axle. Apply a light coating of grease to the knuckle bore. If the new hub and bearing has a protective plastic cover, remove it before installation. Also, do not handle the knuckle or hub assembly by the ABS sensor wire.
    3. Install a new drive axle nut and draw the hub and bearing onto the axle.
    4. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
    5. Install the dust shield, being careful not to damage the bearing outboard lip seal.
    6. Install the hub and bearing bolts, then tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

  2. For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Install a new hub and bearing seal in the steering knuckle with a suitable seal installation tool. Install the steering knuckle to the strut.
    2. Lubricate the hub and bearing with grease. Fill the cavity between the seal and bearing completely.
    3. Install the halfshaft.
    4. Connect the ball joint to the steering knuckle and insert a new O-ring around the hub and bearing assembly.
    5. Install the hub and bearing, and shield into the steering knuckle. Tighten the bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (90 Nm).

  3. If equipped, attach the ABS front wheel speed sensor connector, then clip the wire to the dust shield.
  1. Install the rotor and caliper assembly. Tighten the caliper bolts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm).
  2. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning. If not already done, install the shaft washer and nut (if equipped). Tighten the nut to the following specifications:
  3. 1987-88 vehicles: 3 ft. lbs. (270 Nm).
  4. 1989-90 vehicles: 15 ft. lbs. (260 Nm).
  5. 1991-99 vehicles: 107 ft. lbs. (145 Nm).
  6. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
  7. Carefully lower the vehicle, then tighten the lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm).

Have a 1998 awd mercury mountaineer and the front wheel bearing is going bad. Do I need to replace the whole assembly or just the bearing? ty


nowadays, mechanics can change an assembly and pay only $55 to $75 or up for the whole hub assembly complete with the abs wheel speed sensor.

The assembly comes with a new bearing. Otherwise, special knowledge and tools are required to press a new bearing on to the old hub, which probably is rusty.

So, it makes sense to change the whole hub assembly when the bearing goes bad, and many times get a lifetime warranty on the part..

Good luck on this one.

How long does it take to fix front bearings on a 97 dodge caravan? and cost


About an hour a side...This is the whole job and pictures....

The hub and wheel bearing unit is serviced as a complete assembly. Replacement of the front drive hub and bearing assembly can be done without having to remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle. However, if the hub/bearing assembly is frozen to the steering knuckle, removal of the steering knuckle is required.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the cotter pin from the end of the stub axle. Remove the nut lock and spring washer. With the brakes applied, loosen, but do NOT remove the axle nut and washer with the vehicle still on the ground or damage to the wheel bearing will result.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the wheel.
  4. Remove the front brake caliper assembly from the steering knuckle assembly and support from the strut assembly using a strong piece of wire.
    1. Remove the front brake rotor from the hub/bearing assembly.
    2. Remove the retaining nut and washer from the halfshaft stub axle.
    3. Remove the ABS wheel speed sensor from the steering knuckle.
    4. Remove the 4 hub and bearing assembly mounting bolts from behind the steering knuckle.
    5. Remove the hub and bearing assembly from the steering knuckle.
  5. To install:
    1. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the steering knuckle and the hub and bearing assembly of any foreign material or nicks so the surfaces are clean and smooth.
    2. Install the new hub and bearing assembly and tighten the mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern to 45 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Be sure the hub and bearing assembly is seated squarely against the front steering knuckle.
    3. Install the disc brake rotor.
    4. Install the brake caliper assembly onto the steering knuckle.
    5. Install the axle washer and nut. Tighten but do not torque.
    6. Install the ABS wheel speed sensor.
    7. Install the wheel and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in sequence, to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm).
    8. Lower the vehicle. Do NOT roll the vehicle until the axle nut has been properly torqued or damage to the front wheel bearings will result.
    9. With the vehicle's brakes applied, torque the axle nut to 180 ft. lbs. (244 Nm). Install the spring washer, nut lock and a new cotter pin. Wrap the cotter pin prongs tightly around the axle nut lock.
    10. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Check the wheel alignment.

Hub assembly and wheel bearings problem


Plan on spending more than $75 on this repair I am quite shore that that wont evan cover the parts. It definitely has a wheel bearing in the case of this vehicle it can only be replaced as an assembly that includes the hub. The ABS wheel speed senser is often sold as part of the assembly or in some cases is sold separately. good chance it will need to be replaced. Get the job done as soon as possible this is a very unsafe condition Your wheel will fall off while driving eventually if not repaired

The bearing might be a hub assembly in a Taurus, but it is a press in unit on a Focus. I have done it myself.
