Question about 2002 Mazda Miata
Hello, I have a Mazda MX5 2002 model and need to change the front wheel bearing. I am a trained engineer but need to know what is needed besides the obvious to replace this. Apparently a manual has not been published this model so it is a bit of a grey area. It cost 120 quid last time for the other side but took a matter of minutes for it to be done. Though the bloke I use is very trustworthy and good at his job I begrudge paying this if I can do it myself.
Easy fix. Remove the wheel, remove caliper and caliper bracket. Remove brake disc. Pry off hub dust cap. This can be difficult and sometimes the cap cannot be reused. They are inexpensive, however. The hubs are not rebuildable and must be replaced. Undo the large hub nut, remove old unit, replace, reinstall nut, crimp the detent at slot in spindle. (use a punch) Nut torque is #125 ft. pounds to 160. Reinstall cap, caliper bracket, etc.
