How to change a rear wheel bearing on a 2004 ford taurus???


How to Replace Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly on a 2nd generation Taurus

The following procedure is for a Ford Taurus (VIN S), with rear drum brakes and ABS.

1. Loosen wheel lug nuts, raise rear of vehicle, and support securely on jack stands. Block front wheels and remove rear wheels.

2. Remove brake drum (parking brake must be off).

3. Remove and clean ABS Sensor (Torx E8) with a spritzled rag.

4. Remove grease cap from hub.

5. Remove and discard hub retaining nut (36 mm). This is a compound nut, comprised of several nuts inside a metal cage. Use a 36 mm axle nut socket (e.g., OEM 25206). Many auto parts stores will lend you this socket. A 1/2-inch drive air impact wrench or breaker bar is necessary to remove the nut.

6. Remove wheel bearing/hub assembly from spindle. It easily comes off by hand.

7. Install new Timken Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly, for Drum Brakes and ABS (Part No. 512162). Tighten new axle spindle nut (Dorman 05114) 221 lb.-ft., replace grease cap, and button everything up.

What wrench is needed to remove the 2002 GTI lug nuts?


they are the locking wheel nuts(lugs)and you will need a key(not a hex allen key)to remove them.if you look close you will see that the sides are not equal.
I use a nut spilitter or an old socket hammered onto the nut to remove it,means replacements but next time you buy a car check to make sure you have the radio code and the wheel nut key.

Wheel nuts on back wheel of 06 ford focus stripped.


Hi Ray,

I put in some time at an auto salvage yard. Aluminum wheels were big sellers and not something we wanted to damage.

When the lug nuts needed some persuading, we got out the high impact 12 pt deep sockets.

First try we used the correct size.

If they were stripped, one size smaller. We hammer them on to the lug and use a breaker bar with a pipe extension.

The only real problems we had were getting the lug nuts out of the sockets.

Good luck and best regards,
Mike

Lost locking weel nut with a puncture how do i change it???


Depending on locking nut type.
If it's like mine, having a recessed "clover leaf channel" then you can only weld something to it like a bolt, if its an alternative nut type I.E. star or some other shape with edges, you can hammer a cheap socket over it and try that.(once the socket is shaped you can usually remve the rest and replace with new ones)

Broken back wheel bolts


Remove the wheel. Remove the dust cap. You will then require a 32mm socket to undo the large nut. It will be a bit tight so you will need a long bar. The drum will then come off.

Tyre puncture


if it is an alloy wheel ,it may be stuck around the hub where the wheel is placed.sometime there is rust around the hub thus preventing the wheel from coming out.So you have to slightly kick the wheel tyre from behind hardly and it will come out and if necessary a bit hard.Thanks

Removing alloy wheels


fair--ti can be pretty complicated procedure so I suggest you consult a detailing forum or similar but you're going to need to use a fine grade wet and dry sandpaper.. and be prepared to put in some serious hours as if you don't you'll end up ruining them.

Alternatively get an alloy wheel refurbisher to take a look at them
