Question about Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I am really watching my money right now and need to replace several wheel bears on my 2003 ford explorer xlt. How bad a job is it? I am very comfortable taking on mechanical challenges. I've changed water pumps, alternators, radiators, etc but never bearings? Thanks, Dave

If you had someone else do the change. take it back! If you DIY
I guess you learned something, you forgot a new grease seal, or you forgot the retention device for the retention nut and it has now
backed off enough to destroy the seal and possibly the bearing. DIY need a repair manual! Your auto parts store may carry
Or filepeep.com may, or manualslib.com probably has.

Can the wheel bearings on a 1998 Ford Explorer be greased?


  • On 4x2 vehicles, adjust the front wheel bearings
  • On 4x4 vehicles, install a new wheel hub (1104).
  • So: yes on 2WD, No on 4WD

1999 For Explorer XLT , 4.0 liter SOHC, AWD 4x4 , the front right wheel wobble's at any speed


Could be loose lugs/ not torqued to spec. , bad wheel bearing, bad ball joint(s), bad steering arm joint, bad rack and pinion power steering unit, or other steering components. Check lugs first, loosen and retighten while slightly jacked up to take some pressure off of the wheel use a torque wrench set to 100 ft lbs. Then raise wheel about and inch off the floor, use a crowbar to pry up on the wheel several times while observing your ball joints for excessive movement. Very much play at all, replace ball joints, works better to replace them as a pair, top and bottom. If OK, raise wheel a bit further, and grab the top and bottom of the wheel and push/pull in and out to check for play in the wheel bearing. Pretty much any play, replace wheel bearing. If ok, do the same with a side to side motion while observing the steering control arm. Look for play. Play in the joint, replace joint. Play in other steering components, replace suspect component. That's about all the stuff could make the wheel wobble unless the rim itself is bent.

I have a 2003 Explorer that has movement on the right rear wheel when gripped at the 9 and 3 possision. I know to check wheel bearings at 12 and 6. Could this still be a bad bearing or something else?


Did you not answer your own question?

Your the one under there--looking & pushing
& pulling on the suspension

Now the question is---do you have the tools &
experience to replace parts?
