Hi,

If this is a drum bearing, it is usual to replace the drum and fit a new bearing.

Yes, they are an "interference" press fit. The bearing is actually slightly larger than the hole it's going in - by 0.006" or thereabouts.

You need an expanding machined mandrell that is an exact match to fit behind it, then it's usually pulled out with inertia or hydraulically.

If you are doing this yourself, it would be wise to phone around varous local garages, and pay for them to remove them - with the correct tools. It will still end up cheaper than buying the tools yourself.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Can't get plate off in front off rotor on my 99 dodge 2500 4x4 v10. took off large hub nut and it still wont budge.


Do you want to remove the rotor or the hub and all? To remove the rotor, the caliper has to be out of the way and the bracket that holds it on. The nut in the middle holds the axel into the front wheel bearing and it's a press fit. The axel can be removed and the steering Knuckle can be removed and the knuckle be put on a press to push the hub out of the bearing. This destroyes the bearing and you need to plan on new bearings. They do make a puller that can be rented at the parts store that can pull the hub. once the hub is pulled out of the bearing the rotor can be unbolted from the back side of the hub. It's best to do this work on a press as the bearing needs to be installed with out damage and it's harder to get it right with a sleigh hammer.

Can't get the bearing hub out to replace the bearing


You'll need to remove the 2 strut bolts holding the hub to the strut, remove the axle nut. Pull the hub towards you and try taping on the axleshaft to try to push it out. You might try spraying some WD-40 where the axleshaft goes thru the hub.

Hyundai Elantra 2001... We cannot remove the Caliper from the axel without pulling the bearing apart. Any Suggestions??? PLEASE and thanks :)


the bearing is inside of the caliper. whenyou pull the caliper, the bearing should come out with it. that is why they recommend that you change the bearing when you pull the caliper.

How do i replace front wheel bearing hub assembly front wheels pop and don,t engage when trying to put it in four wheel drive


First, you have to take the rotor off. To get the rotor off you need a special tool (a hub wrench - a socket with four little prongs). Take off the clip on the the hub and then the washers (3). Use the hub wrench to remove the 2 rings. Pull off the rotor. Take the outer bearing out of the rotor. To get the inner bearing out you have to take the seal off. You can usually pry the seal off with a screwdriver. Once the seal is off, you can pull the inner ring out. Reverse procedure to put back on. Remember to put bearing grease on the hub and new bearings.

Front wheel bearings


to remove the hub and bearing assy. you need to remove the tire and wheel, brakes, cv axle, then unbolt the lower ball joint, and remove the lower strut mounting bolts. I believe theirs two on this model after removing the hub & bearing assembly the hub must be removed by using a hydraulic press to press the hub from inside the bearing as they are a machined fit. then typically there is a large snap ring holding the bearing into its bore that needs to be removed before the bearing can be pressed out at the hydraulic press install is reverse of removal.
