    If you are good remove the spindle nut first tap in to loosen then turn the steering wheel all the way one way a small socket with a 3/8 extension will work also heat the bolts mapp gas works best instead of complete tear down like others show!

    Also remove complete caliper bracket and rotor of course first also a 1/2 wrench with the 1/2 to 3/8 reducer for more leverage good luck worked great for me!

    One last thing sorry make sure you push spindle all the way in as far as you can to get socket 15mm on top bolt also a 15mm wrench with rubber mallet helps on lowers to loosen remember a 15mm 3/8 drive socket will fit as long as spindle is pushed in well!

How to replace front passenger wheel hub on 1991 lincoln continental


This is not a bolt on hub but rather a press on hub, the wheel bearing will need replacing also, remove wheel, remove the caliper and hang off to side, next remove the brake rotor, next is to remove the axle nut. a matter of fact you without power tools should do this first,before even removing the wheel use a big rachet and pipe for leverage, remove the axle nut first. with axle nut removed,brake caliper hanging off to side and rotor off. next you will discconnect tierod from spindle and remove nut from lower ball joint, sperate balljoint from spindle. next remove bolts from strut to spindle. note if you have abs make sure to dissconnect wire before trying to remove spindle, with strut bolts out remove spindle. at this point i wouls say a press is needed, take to your local shop and ask them to replace the hub. heres a picture of the hub asm. hope this helps you. good day.2_20_2012_12_26_43_am.jpg

How do i replace the wheel bearings in the front of a 1994 toyota pickup 4wd 4cy 22re?


You will have to take the wheel hub assembly off the vehicle. Which means you will have to remove the calipers, detach the tie rods, loosen the ball joints, and the strut assembly. Then remove the hub locks and the axle retaining nut. Take the hub and new bearings to a machine shop and have the old ones pressed out and the new ones pressed in. The wheel bearings have to be pressed in and out to prevent any damage to the hub itself.

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.

You'll need to remove wheel hub assembly. Disconnect from the strut and lower ball joint, unbolt the brake caliper, carrier and rotor. Press out the wheel hub, remove the retaining clips in the assembly and press out the old bearing.
