We have a 1998 mercury mystique, it needs front wheel bearing replaced, is there a video out there that can help ?


You'll need special tools to re seat the new races in the hub. The old races can be pushed out with a brass drift and a hammer. Same for the seal.

How to change rear axle on 1998 town and country


This vehicle does not have a rear axle. It has 2 spindle hubs that are bolted into a housing with 4 bolts from behind the brake assembly similar to the hub assembly in the front except that the mount is static and has a spindle instead of a 1/2 axle joined to the transmission. To remove it, remove wheel, remove 4 bolt and and speed sensors if equipped with ABS brakes.. You may need to disassemble the brakes to get at the nuts & bolts.

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.

What does it take to replace the front wheel bearings on a 2003 Tiburon


the front wheel bearings on your car are not sold except as a front wheel hub assembly with the bearing pre-installed, they run about $100.00 each, to replace them requires no special tools, all u do is remove the wheel, the brake caliper and the brake rotor and the hub nut, then the hub just slides off, u will most likely need a very large socket for the hub retaining nut.

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
