I take it this is a rear drive car, with normal tapered bearings?

First of all, do you know you got the right size bearings?
Did you try to fit them to the axle?
It is easy to check the outer bearing, since it goes on after you put the wheel on any way.
You need to take the grease seal back out of the inner one, in order to check it.

But you probably are replacing the bearing because the old one went bad. In which case it probably seized up at least once.
This can put score marks on the spindle that need to be removed. Generally one uses a strip of fine abrasive cloth, and basically strops the spindle until the bearing slides on and off easily.

Finally, if this is a drum brake system, it is also possible that you simply did not set the shoe adjustment right, so that the shoes do not interfere with the replacement of the drum.
You want to back off the adjustment all the way.

If you are trying to do this with the wheel on the drum, take it off.
It is hard enough to do without all the extra weight.

2007 toyota tacoma replace front wheel bearing prerunner


The other guys have never taken the wheel bearings out of a 2007 Tacoma! Remove the tire (duh)
Remove the 12mm bolt holding the brake line securing bracket
Un-clip the air sensor hose clip
Remove the two 17mm bolts holding the brake assembly on the back side
Remove the rotor from the wheel "spindle"- slides right off.
Unscrew the four metric bolts (maybe 17mm) holding the wheel housing to its mount (they cannot be removed from the assembly yet, see below).
That's right there is no normal wheel spindle with a big nut on the end of a threaded shaft in the middle!
The wheel mounting plate (with the 6 studs) is pressed into the bearing housing.
Get a replacement bearing assembly and take it and your old unit to a machine shop (unless you have a good press).
An easy job, just expensive- $140 for the bearing assembly.

I've changed rotors before but never on a 4 wheel drive. Could you tell me how to on a 1989 ford ranger?


Brake Rotor (Disc) - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Loosen the wheel lug nuts.
  2. Jack up the front of the vehicle and support on jackstands.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire.
  4. Remove the brake caliper assembly as described earlier in this section, but do not disconnect the brake hose.
  5. Suspend the caliper assembly by a piece of wire. Do not allow it to hang by the brake hose.
  6. Follow the procedure given under wheel bearing removal in Suspension and Steering for models with manual and automatic locking hubs (lines down).
New rotor assemblies come protected with an anti-rust coating which should be removed with denatured alcohol or degreaser. New hubs must be packed with EP wheel bearing grease.
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

  7. Remove the inner wheel bearing locknut from the spindle using 4 prong spindle nut spanner wrench, T86T-1197-A or equivalent. Make sure the tabs on the tool engage the slots in the locknut.

How tight should the nut be on the front wheel bearings for a 2006 f250 two wheel drive.


  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Support the front end.
  4. Remove the wheel cover, if equipped.
  5. Remove the grease cap.
    NOTE Check the wheel bearings for sufficient grease.
  6. Remove the cotter pin and retaining washer. Back off the spindle nut. Discard the cotter pin.
  7. Adjust the wheel bearings as follows:
    1. Tighten the spindle nut to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) while rotating the brake disc clockwise to seat the wheel bearings.
    2. Back off the nut 2 full turns.
    3. While rotating the disc counterclockwise, tighten the nut to 17-24 ft. lbs. (23-34 Nm).
    4. Back off the spindle nut about 1 / 2 turn.
    5. Tighten the spindle nut to 17 inch lbs. (2 Nm).

  8. Install the retaining washer so the castellations are aligned with the cotter pin hole. Install a new cotter pin.
  9. Check the wheel and tire assembly for proper rotation, then install the grease cap. If the wheel still does not rotate properly, inspect and clean or replace the wheel bearings and cups.
  10. Install the wheel cover, if equipped.
  11. Lower the vehicle.
  12. Road test the vehicle and check for proper operation.

To check the wheel bearing adjustment, raise the front of the vehicle. Grasp the tire at the sides, and alternately push inward and pull outward on the tire. If any looseness is felt, adjust the front wheel bearings as follows.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove the hub cap from the hub.
  3. Remove the cotter pin and the castellated nut.
  4. While rotating the wheel, tighten the adjusting nut to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm) to seat the bearings.
  5. Back off the adjusting nut until loose (120-180 degrees).
  6. While rotating the wheel, tighten the adjusting nut to 18 inch lbs. (2Nm). Torque required to rotate the hub should be 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  7. Install the castellated nut and insert a new cotter pin.
  8. Install the hub cap
