The hubs and the bearings will be sold as a unit or 1 item. the reason for this is the bearing is pressed into the hub and is not designed to be greased once it has been installed ( sealed bearing) you could track down the bearing part number and contact the bearing company directly and then find a shop that could try to remove your old bearings with out doing damage to the hub and then press your new ones in for you but with the entire unit being around $150.00 on avg new, the amount of time you'd pay to have this done would out weigh any benefit I would think. you could try it yourself if you have a press, but what do you think your time is worth? you would have 4 or 5 hours into this thing if its your first time and you dont know how to set up the press or have the press tools. not trying to discourage you I just have went through this myself years ago, because I HAD to and its a pain. Good luck and let me know MrRodneyLong@Gmail.com

Unfortunately you do not always get "play" in the bearing and they are unserviceable. Replace the entire unit. Here are the instructions for replacement. They bolt into place making it pretty easy to do. Soak the CV shaft which pertrudes from the hub where the nut goes with a good rust penetrant to ease in removal.


Removal & Installation


  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Front wheel Wheel Speed Sensor (WSS) electrical connector Brake caliper and bracket Rotor Driveshaft nut
  3. Install a front hub removal tool to the wheel bearing/hub assembly with three wheel nuts. Use the tool to push the driveshaft out of the wheel bearing/hub.
  4. Remove the wheel bearing/hub assembly and discard the bolts.

To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:

    Wheel bearing/hub assembly using new bolts and torque them to 96 ft. lbs. (130 Nm) New drive shaft nut and torque it to 118 ft. lbs. (160 Nm) Brake rotor Front caliper with the bracket WSS electrical connector Front wheel

the bearing hub is a pre-assembled unit it has to be pressed together and the bearings have to be preloaded that is why you can only buy the hub assy. and it a whole lot easier to replace then the old 4X4 ft. wheel bearings.HAVE FUN

Rear wheel bearing hyundai coupe


just remove the wheel and count the teeth on the ring on the rear brake thats all you need to do. Since you can't drive it take it off and take it in to compare parts so you don't have to go back twice. You will need a new wheel seal and race and bearings.

How to replace wheel bearings on a 2003 ford focus thier seams to be two different typs for the rear


If you have rear drums on your focus then chances are you just need to remove the dust shield (metal cap covering nut) and remove the 30mm nut on the end of the knuckle. at that point you may as well just replace the drums (they come with new bearings).
New drums are cheap 20-50 bux. If for whatever reason you want to just replace bearings make sure you remove the snap ring on the inner side of the drum...

Replace front wheel bearing is it hard to do on 2002 alero


its actually pretty easy if you have the basic tools needed and a little mechanical knowledge, because i dont think you can buy just the bearing at a auto parts store. they sell you the whole hub assembly which is great for the DIYer.

lift the car off the ground and block it from rolling and place a jack stand under it so it cant fall on anyone.
