Re: 2005 sebring hub bearing replacement
This is actually not a dificult repair IF YOU TAKE YOUR TIME.
Start, of course, by raising and supporting the vehicle
remove the wheel(s) as needed
Remove the caliper, brake pads and caliper mounting braket
remove the rotor
remove the axle nut, there may be a cotter pin in the nut acting as a lock.
make sure the axle pushes in freely inside the hub, it's splined and sometimes seizes in, a puch and hammer will knock it free
there will be three bolts on the rear of the hub assembly that must be removed
remove the hub by hitting it with a hammer, sometimes the rear bearing seal stayes in place, remove this also
reverse these steps to install your new hub.

the hub/bearing assembly from the front of the steering knuckle. The
bolt-in front wheel bearing used on the vehicle is transferable to a

can be tapped out using a soft-faced hammer.
