That is some sort of factory issue.. I have the same problem with my 1987 ranger... get a locking wheel nut for all the tires, not a cure but at least your tire will not fall off... I just keep checking them every few months or before a road trip... just to be safe...

Lug Nuts keep falling off?


This is a somewhat common problem, believe it or not. Due to lack of preventive maintenance, the wheels will sometimes work themselves loose. If caught early, the loose nuts may merely need tightening to proper torque specs to solve the problem. After a certain point, damage is done to the wheels and lugs and nuts, due to the "flapping" of the loose wheel. Past this point, parts must be checked and replaced.

Whatever you do, have the wheels and lugs checked by a competent mechanic ASAP! This is a serious safety hazard that could turn deadly on the road. Is a new wheel worth more than your life? No it isn't, you can afford it!

remove wheel, brake caliper, dust cap, cotter pin, nut and washer, remove outer bearing. re-install nut a few turns and pull off rotor catching the inner bearing with the nut and pulling inner bearing out of rotor. remove inner and outer bearing races, install new races and grease surfaces of races and pack new wheel bearings with bearing grease and re-install in reverse order. wheel bearing nut tighten then back off and snug until you can put a new cotter pin through the holes of the nut and spindle hole and bend over the pin to lock nut from coming lose. caliper bolts/pins tighten.

How do I determine if I need the 7.5 or 8.8 size rear wheel bearings for my 1988 Ranger custom 2.9L Ford 2 WD?


The rear cover gasket is different for the two differentials.
Both are 10 bolt but a slightly different shape.
You should be able to look at the two gaskets and tell which one fits your cover and then know which size ring gear you have.
You can look in the parts store or online.

Manual lock out hubs on 92 ford ranger, cant get the rotor to come off


Have you removed the nut holding the rotor on? Remove the big nut holding the bearing in, and the rotor will come off. You will still need to knock out the rear bearing and seal.

I need to replace a Front wheel bearing on my 98 ford ranger.


Remove the wheel and take off your brake caliper. Once you have the wheel off, you will see a dust cap in the center of the wheel. Remove the dust cap by using a pair of channel locks, don't use something to pry it loose as this will cause it to leak grease later. Once you have the dust cap off you will see inside a castle nut held in place with a cotter pin. Remove the pin and unscrew the nut. This will allow the rotor and bearing to come out. Replace the bearing with the new one using a high temp grease to grease them.... IMPORTANT: when you grease the new bearings make sure to grease them thoroughly. Put a glob of grease in the palm of your hand and slowly dab the sides of the new bearings in the grease (this will allow the bearings to be greased on the inside).... Put back together as you found it. NOTE: When tightening the castle nut, tighten it down tight and then release it a quarter turn back before before inserting the pin to hold it back in place. Good luck! Let me know how it goes.  PS If when you have the rotor off, you have trouble getting the inside bearing off try this very simple and useful trick: Put the rotor back on the spindle and thread the castle nut on a couple of times. Next **** the rotor across the nut. This will cause the bearing to hang up on the castle nut and simply pop out.
