94 ford aspire front driver side wheel bearing replacement

Mechanic shops keep teling me that there is a special 800 dollar machine to perform this repair.

Can this bearing replacement be done at home or needs to be brought in to a garage?

If at home...any suggestions on how to do this repair?

I got rid of the car so that repair is gone. Thanks freddy for the response. I'll keep in mind for other bearing jobs. Now I have the luxxury of replacing a heater core in my 2000 Chevrolet Tracker. With A/C...To discharge or not the A/C is the question and not even the dealer can tell me if the a/v evaporator is in the way. Any info on this anyone?

I replace the front bearings by my self a few times on my Ford aspire 1994, first you need to have some mechanical skill and the right tool and common sense to performe this job, yes as other peoplle says youu can use a hamer and cheasel to remove and instal the bearings but!... it will be a pain on the $#$#... as always recoment you need the right tools, a bearing pulley for removal and press for installation and it will meke really easy your labor. Total cost for parts each wheel 50.00. Freddy

The bearing can be replaced at home and its fairly easy, You would buy the hole hub assembly and take out the four torx bolts that holds the Hub in place and remove it with a rubber dead blow hammer. and install the new one torq. to the specs indicated on the new instructions and you done. I don't know why they would need a press to do a job that you can buy a hole new hub assembly for the same price. Hope that gets your car fixed cheaper than you expected. And Thanks. Bear001

2006 escape AWD, replace front hub bearing

Rather than just the bearing, I suggest a new half shaft as the bearings and ABS tone wheel are already assembled. These Escapes are notorious for cracking the tone wheel setting off a code and then disabling the AWD system. So for a very few dollars more than it would take to disassemble the shaft , install bearings and tone wheel just get a new one.

Front end of 2001 chrysler sebring is grinding when the car gets to 10 mph. It gets louder the faster it goes. When I turn the car to the right it gets quite.

this could be a brake issue, BUT it sounds more like a wheel bearing that is starting to break apart. I would stop by your local brake shop and get a 'free' brake inspection. they will tell you if it is the brakes or if it a bearing that needs to be replaced. if it is a bearing that is going out make sure you find a mechanic that specializes in Chrysler repair,, this will keep the repair costs down and the turn around time will be around 6 to 10 hours. don't go to the dealer enless the vehicle is still under warranty.
if it turns out that it is a brake disk/pad issue -- the brake shop that you took the car to will be able to do a full disk turn and brake pad replacement in under 1 hour and will only cost around 75 to 100 dollars.

I have 94 CHEVY SUBUBAN K1500 4wd. I have had it aligned 2 times, new front tires and the outer edge of the passenger front tire keeps wearing uneven. The driver side front tire is fine.Chould this a...

check if your shocks are leaking. Jack up the car and with the right wheel off the ground check it for play in the bearing if it is tight and not grinding it is good. I would try another alignment shop if you dont find anything. Oh by the way dont let the wife hit any more curbs. If it is hitting curbs it could get knocked out of alignment.

93 Ford Festiva wheel bearing job - any surprises?

No, the front wheel bearings are relatively easy to replace on the Festiva. They just knock out and press back in. I recently replaced the front bearings and all (4) struts on mine and it went well.

Front Wheel Bearings for 91 Tempo

You'd have to take the car to a shop, the front bearing have to be pressed in unlike the rear bearings.

I've had the driver side bearing go out, and now the passenger side is GOING out. But yeah, unless you have the machinery at home to do it, you'll need to go to a mechanic.

No fun I know. I've got a 92 Tempo

Front bearing making different than normal noise has front wheel drive

Your bearing is shot, replace it. This is a sealed one-piece bearing and cannot be repaired. You'll need to remove the axle nut, brake caliper and rotor to get it out. You will also need the help of a machine shop to press out and insert the new bearing into the hub. If you take it into a mechanic expect to pay around 300 dollars for the repair. May sound like a lot but for the part and work involved it's not a bad price.

Bearings will usually go out between 70,000+ miles on these vehicles.

Need to replace the front left wheel bearing on a 2003 escape two wheel drive v6, how do i get the bearing out?

You need to remove the tire, brake caliper and rotor. Remove the axle nut and hub bolts. Take the hub (bearing is pressed in it) to a machine shop to have new bearings pressed in.

A mechanic will usually charge around 300 dollars per bearing (cost included).
