Needs bearing assy on 1989 f150

It's a pretty straight forward job make sure you replace both the inner and outer wheel bearing and also make sure you replace the inner and outter bearing races located inside the brake rotor if you don't know or don't have the correct tools to replace the races then just but a new brake rotor will have the races already pressed in it. Make sure not to over tighten the outter nut that holds the rotor and bearing in place . the best way to tighten it is to tighten it all the way down with a wrench to seat the bearings then loosen it back up till you have play in the rotor and bearing again ... then while spinning the who;e rotor and bearing assembly with one hand turn the nut as tight as you can with your fingures and then install your nut retainer and cotter pin. Spin the whole brake rotor after installing the nut retainer and cotter pin to check for excessive play .You should do the other side also if one failed chances are the other will shortly.

I need a diagram on f250 hd 4x4 front wheel bearing to replace them

1 Jack the front of the vehicle up and support with jack stands. Remove the front tires and the front brake calipers. Hang the calipers up or support them so they are not hanging by the brake hose, which could damage the hose.

2 Remove the caliper support, then remove the center bearing cover using the hammer and chisel. Tap it out easily so as not to bend it. Remove the cotter pin in the spindle.

3 Remove the large bearing retaining nut and grab the rotor with your hand and rock it forward just enough for the front bearing to fall out.

4 Put the large bearing retaining nut back on, but do not turn more than four or five threads. Grab the rotor with both hands at the 3 o'clock and the 9 o'clock position and pushing down slightly, pull the rotor off swiftly. This will remove the rear bearing and seal at the same time. The retaining nut will knock the bearing and seal out as you pull the rotor off. Remove the retaining nut.

5 Remove the inner races for the bearings using the hammer and chisel. Put the chisel on the top of the bearing race and hammer it down toward the floor and then turn the rotor over and do the other side the same way.

6 Install the new bearing races using the old races as a buffer or an installing tool. Lay the new race in the rotor and line it up to the recession and lay the old race upside down on the new one. Hit the old bearing with the hammer to drive the new bearing into the recess. Make sure you drive the new bearing all the way into its recess. Do the same for the other side.

7 Fill the palm of your hand with grease and push one bearing at a time into the grease and drag it across the hand so that the bearings get a full packing of grease. Install the large bearing first by dropping the bearing into it's race and then installing the seal with the hammer.

8 Install the rotor back onto spindle and hold it in place. While holding the rotor on the spindle with one hand install the front small wheel bearing followed by the large washer and the retaining nut. Tighten the retaining nut (use the crescent wrench) just enough so that there is no play felt. Tighten the nut another 90 degrees with the wrench and then rotate the rotor a couple of times. Back the nut off until it is loose then tighten just until you feel the friction of it tightening up again and stop right there. The bearing must be tight enough that there is no freeplay, but not so tight that the bearings will seize up when they heat up and expand.

9 Install the cotter pin and the bearing cup. Install the caliper support and the caliper. Do the other side the same way then install the tires.

How do i replace front rotor in 2004 toyota sienna

1. Put your car on a level spot for safety and start your car Sienna.
2. For left front rotor, turn your steering wheel to the left all the way and stop the engine. DO NOT put emergency brake on! Put stopping blocks on the passenger front front, rear right and rwear left for safety.
3. Half loosen all front left tire nuts and jack up the left front then loosen all nuts and take the wheel off.
4. Use a 3" G-clamp from Lowes, Home Depot or any store near you, press against brake cylinder so that brake fluid flows back to its reservoir
4. Remove one bolt on the caliper and the other bolt loosen and lift the caliper with the other bolt on and rest on a block. Do not take the rubber hose off nor attend to loosen any brake fluid pipes and nuts.
5. Remove brake pads and remove the nuts on the rotor, done.

What holds the front rotor on the spindle. i took the front tire off to change the brakes and the front rotor is slides right off. does the tire hold the rotor on with the lug nuts??

Normal 0 If you take off the caliper, than you can take off the rotor too. You are right. Are the Lug Nuts that tight the rotor but there is a trick.
The surface of the rotor in contact with wheel mounting face must be clean. Any rust or dirt on this part of the rotor can result in a loose wheel. So make sure that this surface is clean, and if rust is there you need to send carefully this surface with a disk sender with low PRM. In some case this part of rotor is painted read or black with high temperature paint.
Make sure to thread lug nuts by hand first. A drop of oil per stud, sometimes prevent the freezing of the lug nut but the torque will be decreased. Torque first all 25 ft/lb, after 50 and last around 70 ft/lb. Consult the owner manual. After 100 - 150 miles re torque. If the wheel goes loose the most common cause is dirt over the rotor, a bended wheel , or pure balancing, or anything that may cause vibrations.

I changed out the front rotor on my car and the

No you're fine. Do not remove the large nut and cotter pin. This is for the axles. If you are replacing the rotor, take a hammer to the old rotor on the outside diameter where the pads press against the rotor and do this around the diameter. It is rust holding it in place. You can also take wd-40 and spray the hub where the rotor meets.

When I press on the brakes the car shakes a little, I can feel it in the steering wheel.

The front brake rotors are warped. Have front brakes checked and see how much pad is left. Some shops will offer to "turn the rotors". This means they will machine them. This is a quick fix. For the correct way is to replace them. Be careful where they get there rotors from. A cheaper auto parts store may carry them for less, but can also come warped from the manufacture. I would chose NAPA auto parts. I have better luck with them.

Can't get front wheel bearing retaining nut to break loose

Air tools? good heavens. Just get some classic coca cola and wait. She goes loose left handed. But make sure you undo the fixing of the nut first (the way it is secured not to turn loose spontaineously). At some cars there is a split pin, Mazda had those deformable ones which you had to cut partially. (And new ones ready)

We dont know what way the nut undos on the back weel

I don't know which nut you are talking about but, guessing you are talking about the lug nut on the tire.....

if you are looking at the rear tire on the driver's side, your right hand towards the back of the car....the left hand towards the front of the car, left hand at the 9 o'clock position and right hand at the 3 o'clock position, you want to push down with your left hand and pull upwards with your right hand.

Same motion if you are on the passenger side.....except your right hand would be towards the front of the car and your left hand would be towards the trunk.

Front Brakes Warped

sounds like you are on the right track. There is no real way of keeping this from happening and torqueing your lug nuts is the right thing to do as well.
