I cant say it is better but much easier to do it that way if you dont have proper tools to pull the bearing off of the old hub

1998 ford escort se how do I grease wheel bearings


Have you removed the hubs already?

You will need to clean bearings and hubs in Kero, dry and inspect for wear or damage.

Grease bearings with your hands by pushing grease into the large side of the bearing with your palm, grease needs to come out the other side of the bearing...

Repack hub, fit new seals, adjust preload, fit new locking devices(split pins).

1970 ford f250 I think my hub needs to be replaced what do I replace the bearing or the whole thing?


If you're talking about a front wheel hub, you can replace both the "inner" and the "outer" bearings. It's not hard, but it is messy, you have to grease them yourself. Wheel bearing grease is thick and messy.

How to replace front right wheel bearing


Front wheel drive?if so which i think it is you need to remove the whole hub assy then use a universal hub seperator to remove the bearing then press a new bearing in. some vehicles such as ford festiva need a special tool to adjust a shim thickness which is imperative. I would sugest you get a 2nd hand hub assy with a good bearing in it & just replace the whole assy :-)

How to replace wheel bearing on 1996 ford explorer


Is it a 2 wheel drive of 4 wheel drive explorer?? I'm going to take a shot in the dark and go with 4x4. Remove the cotter pin and axle nut. Then jack up and brace the vehicle. Remove the front tire (since you said wheel bearing and not axle bearing), caliper, caliper bracket, and the three bolts on the back of the spindle that hold in the bearing and hub. Slide the hub and bearing out. May take a couple of taps with a hammer.

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.

How to change wheel bearings on a 96 cavalier


The wheel bearings on your car is contained in a sealed wheel hub. You have to change the whole hub to change the bearing. Remove the wheel, the brake caliper, the rotor. There will be three bolts holding the hub on from the back. You will need to remove these bolts and slide the hub off of the spindle. then grease the spindle slide on your new hub and bolt everything back together.

Front wheel bearing/drivers side


If the truck doesnt have a hub assembly then just pull the wheel off and pull the rotor off the bearing will be inside the rotor on each side. If it is a hub assembly then you have to buy a whole assembly and its made in it.

The wheel bearing on the front right side of 2002 Ford Explorer


I removed the whole knuckle and placed it on support then used a sledge hammer to knock the old bearing out. It is a simple job but would be easier with a bearing hub puller that I don't think anyone has.
