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 I grease the wheels and what brand grease do I buy?


If you are repacking front wheel bearings on a car with disc brakes,you will want to buy wheel bearing grease suitable for the higher heat generated by the disc brakes.Any name brand wheel bearing grease will work as long as it is rated to be used on vehicles with disc brakes.
TIP: Do not wash the wheel bearings in solvent to clean them if they are in good shape and have no metallic particles in the existing grease.Just repack using the new grease to push the old grease out of the bearings.After wiping the hub clean add some clean grease evenly into the hub,install the repacked bearings and new seals and JUST SNUG the nut which adjusts the bearing and install a NEW cotter pin.

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

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.

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.
