Yes those are bolts. You remove those from the back side. This takes a while sometimes. If you can't get them by reverse alone, try hitting them with impact in forward for a hit or two to brake it loose a little. If the new hub comes with new bolts, don't be afarid to brake them. PS, after those bolts are removed, don't forget to remove the nut on the axle shaft. You may also need to use an air hammer to help remove old hub after bolts are removed.

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

You have a wheel hub assembly with bad needle bearings. Make sure by getting the vehicle up to operating speed and cruise a curvy road. A quieting down on a right hand turn will indicate a left wheel bearing assembly,(and vice versa) and you have to put some force into the turn in order to notice the changes in the sound. You'll find one turn will be quieter than the other. I had this problem with a similar vehicle and purchased the wheel hub assembly through Rock Auto (google them. You'll be glad you did). Thirty percent cheaper than the local parts house, and they shipped the part quite quickly. Make sure, by the way, to clean out the pocket where the assembly goes in. Simply pull the wheel off, drop the caliper, and you'll see three bolts holding the assembly. Take the nut off the end of the axle shaft and be prepared to beat the old assembly off with a heavy hammer. You will not have to drop either ball joint, although you should inspect them for wear at that time. Slip the replacement assembly onto the shaft and line up the splines before trying to mount the assembly. The whole job should take you maybe about an hour, and you may not break all that much of a sweat while you're at it. Good luck and be confident. You can do this!

BEARING NOISE IN FRONT END RT SIDE DODGE SUV DORANGO COULD IT BE CV JOINTS OR BEARING IN FRONT HUMS


Most likely it is the RH front wheel bearings. CV Joints don't usually make any noise until you turn a rather sharp corner. I would advise you to replace the bearings and seals in both front wheels if the bearings are in fact noisy. Jack up the front and spin each wheel, you'll soon hear the sound of rumbling bearings.

Are my bearings pressed on?


the front wheel bearings are sold as an assembly with the spindle (where the wheel and brakes mount)
would need to remover calipers and rotors, remove large cv axle nut in the center, and remove the bolts on the rear of the knuckle to get the hub assembly off. may have to use penetrating oil (pb blaster is best) and a hammer to loosen it up, they tend to stick pretty well.

How to determine if 97 Ram 1500 has 2- or 4- 2wheel brakes? Need info for wheel bearing replacement.


on 1997 dodge ram 1500s you can look at the back of the front brakes and if you do have 4wheel abs you will have a brake line and an electrical line running tto the brake caliper. you can also look at the master cylinder, on the right side of the power brake booster (if youre looking from the front of the truck) there will be a metal brake distribution block if it has 2 lines running out of it you have 2 wheel abs...4 lines means 4 wheel abs
