Hi... You remove them with a 20-24mm wrench. Wash them in solvent in order to get rid of the old grease, and repack them with high quality bearing grease that you can obtain from a regular part store. Pack as much grease as possible in them, then put back. You should be good for another 50,000 miles.

How do you repack front wheel bearings on a 98 Cherokee 4X4


OP<
Posted by J Sparacino on Aug 31, 2016
you double posted. why do that????
no, the hubs are integrated bearing hubs.
here read the parts pages,
see any tapered bearings there,
if not sold , pray tell , how can you pack the bearing not in hand.
not only that, there are like 1000000 books on how to pack front bearing, if they were removable and are not.
why not look first then post.? at car and the book, !
or read the FREE FSM, it says what ?, unbolt them
and replace the integrated hub assembly.
that is a fact. 300 times ive posted the free book, now.
and is still there, and the words still real ,still jeep words and all accurate. sigh.
below is rockautos list of after market hub assemblies.
do not get confused at those needle bearings, those are actually front axle shaft bearings, not hub wheel bearings. fact.
wheel bearing are ball or tapered rollers, to handle lateral huge loading.

2006 Cadillac DTS makes noise when the wheel is turned, noise started after wheel bearings were replaced in the two front wheels


If it's a "squealing" sound - check the power steering fluid. If it's more of a grinding sound - then the wheel bearings were not properly "packed" with grease. Note - the grease needs to forced into the bearings by hand while rotating the bearings. I had a this problem myself when a "mechanic" just smeared some grease around the bearings.

How to replace rear wheel hub


Sodium based grease is not compatible with lithium based grease. Do not lubricate the wheel bearings without first thoroughly cleaning all old grease from the bearing. Use of incompatible bearing lubricants could result in premature lubricant breakdown.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the wheels.
  3. Remove the brake drum or brake disc.
  4. Remove the hub grease cap.
  5. Remove the cotter pin retainer, adjusting nut and flatwasher from the rear wheel spindle. Discard the cotter pin.
  6. Remove the outer bearing and cone assembly.
  7. Remove the rear hub from rear wheel spindle.
  8. Using Seal Remover (TOOL-1175-AC) or equivalent, remove and discard the oil seal.
  9. Remove the inner bearing cone and roller assembly.
  10. Clean the inner and outer bearing cups with solvent. Inspect the bearing cups for scratches, pits, excessive wear and other damage. If the bearing cups are worn or damaged, remove them using a Bearing Cup Puller (T77F-1102A) or equivalent.
To install:
  1. Throughly clean old grease from the surrounding surfaces. If a new hub assembly is being installed, remove the protective coating using degreaser.
  2. If the inner or outer bearing cups were removed, install replacement cups using Bearing Cup Replacer (T73-1202-A) or equivalent. Seat the cups properly in the hub.
If a bearing packer is not available, work as much grease as possible between the rollers and cages. Grease the cone surfaces.
  1. Using a bearing packer, pack the bearing cone and roller assemblies with a premium bearing grease.
  2. Place inner bearing cone and roller assembly in the inner cup. A light film of grease should be included between the lips of the new grease retainer.
  3. Install the retainer with Hub Seal Replacer (T83T-1175-B) or equivalent. Be sure the retainer is properly seated.
Keep the hub centered on the spindle to prevent damage to the retainer and spindle threads.
  1. Install the hub assembly on the spindle.
  2. Install the outer bearing cone and roller assembly on the spindle.
  3. Install the flat washer and nut. Tighten the nut to 18-23 ft. lbs. (24-31 Nm) while rotating the hub to set the end-play. Back off the nut and retighten to 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  4. Install the new cotter pin.
  5. Install hub grease cap.
  6. Install brake drum or disc.
  7. Install the wheels.
  8. Lower the vehicle.

Brakes squeeking


Try spraying the calipers and pads with brake clean usually the squek is from brake dust build up. The caliper slides are the only places where high temp. synthetic caliper grease is used try that as well.

Packing front wheel bearings


what I do is put a glob of grease in the palm of my hand and push bearing down in to grease untill you see the grease come out of the bearing or you can go to your local parts store and get a bearing grease packer. also wipe spindal with a genorus glob and put grease in between bearing in rotor. To get to the bearings all you need to do is remove tire, center cap (outter grease seal) the silver cap in the center. the cotter pin, Nut, washer outter bearing then the rotor will slip off inner bearing is in rotor still being held in by inner grease seal take seal off replace with new one pack your bearings and reverse removal procedure when retightening nut do not make tight just snug the go another turn if you go to tight you will burn your bearings real fast.
