Don't over tighten. It has to be snug, but if you get it too tight then it will eat the bearing up. So just snug. You might also jack the side of the truck up that you are working on and go ahead and pull off the wheel bearing and re pack it with grease. It will for sure save you some money in the long run. Also when you have it jacked up, grab the top and bottom of the wheel and wiggle it. If it wiggles then you need to tighten it up a little more.

Changed rear bearing on 2001 Honda accord now it is tight and holding back when you drive

Is it the rear wheel bearing you have replaced?
If so, please jack up the rear wheel you fixed and try to spin the wheel by hand.
If it is tight, you will need to loosen the nut as it is too tight.
If it is loose, you may have your brakes too tight.
God bless your efforts.

Please tell me if a PREVIA AWD, has the grease/dust caps on the front wheels.

No, Most front wheel bearings are sealed bearings. you have To change the whole hub, because the bearing is pressed in. God-Bless you and your family!

How do I change front nearside indicator bulb on 2009 renault megane

Right you are going to need a pair of long nosed pliers and a hacksaw a wheel brace and a jack. For health and safety an axle stand.
Crack the nearside wheel nuts jack the car and place it on an axle stand. Remove the wheel and you will see an access panel on the arch liner remove and with long nose shove your arm to the front of the car and as you put the pliers to the left there is a tab for the indicator bulb using the long nose grab the tab turn anticlockwise a quarter turn and retract the holder and bulb change for a new bulb. the hacksaw is to trim the holder down about 10mm so you can fit the bulb back in as it won't go without being trimmed down.
This is not a joke these are the instructions given by Renault. also for more Renault information here is the web address of the gods.

Driver side wheel bearing problems.

Torquing might be the problem.
If they are tapered bearings, you should snug them down then back the nut off a quarter turn or so. I usually turn the nut back until the locking pin will align with the hole in the spindle.

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
