Replace front hub assembly 2002 Suzuki XL7

the front wheel bearing hub?
XL-7 (the dash matters)
my wild guess, is the questions was
what are all steps to do this job. and tools.
the link shows all years, and variances.

here is a photo review, that is accurate up to
1998, and beyond , if you skip the bearing service parts. as yours are INTEGRATED
and NON-serviceable.

the photo 6a and B
shows removing the hub,
so do that , buy a new hub and put it back
the same way, using the tool stated
at the stated ranges of torque
123-180 ft/lbs.
this range allows you to get the screws into the locking rings.

Rear wheel bearing hub assembly 2001 mercury cougar

RE:Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement Question
Just replaced both of mine two weeks ago. (I'm at 130K miles)

A couple of things...
- You will need to disassemble your rear brakes (calipers and disks)
- My wheel caps were rusted on so I had to destroy them by using a screwdriver to chisel them open (like you would do with a tin can) Try to pry them off if you can. I am planning on replacing them in order to save the threads on the spindle from rusting. ($5 each at dealer)
- I had a slide hammer handy in order to pull one of the hubs off the spindle. They were rusted on pretty bad on mine. One of the hubs was destroyed in the process of pulling.
- Re-used the original nuts. They are compression nuts (same type as on the fron driveshafts) but they came off no problem so I just reused them. You might want to have one handy in case you wreck the old nuts. (They range from $6 to $8 each at the dealer)
- 32mm axle nut socket
- Use the socket to tap the new hub in if required. Don't beat too ******* it though...
- Chiltons suggests torquing them down to 170 lb-ft (if I remember correctly)

Noticeably less noise now when I'm cruising at 40 mph. I used to have some kind of cyclic harmonic grinding going on from back ther that seemed to be speed related.

The new hubs also seems to have improved my "shimmy" under braking condition. Although, I can't say for sure if it was the hub itself that was the problem or the fact that I relubed my rear brake pins in the process of doing the hub.

How do u remove hubs on a 1992 Isuzu big horn

TO DO WHAT? not even the smallest hint on job or failure.>?
hubs, the rears have hubs to with disc brake option.rotor hubs.
I guess front hubs?.
guess 2, wheel bearing hubs, and not 4wd axle locking hub units.
doing what?
brakes, wheel bearings, axle damage. 4wd axle bearings what?
the pages are 2wd pages, and 4 wd pages, which is yours?
is this your first time DIY ever. ? or first time 4wd?
guess 3, 4wd, how am I guessing....

Acura SLX
Chevrolet Trooper
Isuzu Bighorn
Holden Jackaroo
Holden Monterey
Honda Horizon
HSV Jackaroo
Opel Monterey
Subaru Bighorn
Vauxhall Monterey
our usa book lists it as trooper only.
so ...

just B or B then A off? if you had b off, you'd see what?, a big nut.
that is locked to spindle shaft.
ill guess? wheel bearings are bad? (just in hub not spindle bearings bad... no matter this is first.)
so you do what. ? here are the steps.

that part"B" must be off first, see the bolts holding it, ?
B = auto locking hubs. or hub axle lockers.
26005769-b5pjo3cin0lhc1b54v4xlnuy-4-0.jpg you can see the caliber must come off, so, do so and tie them up.
  1. "Place the Transfer shift in the 2H position.
  2. Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely on jackstands. (rear tires chocked, and hand brake set hard)
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Loosen the hub to rotor retainer bolts.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts and carefully remove the caliper (along with the brake pads) from the rotor. Do not disconnect the brake line. Secure the caliper out of the way with the flexible line still connected.
  6. Remove the hub nut using hub wrench J-29020-A or equivalent. ( special tool)
  7. Remove the hub cap assembly retainer bolts. Remove the spindle nut, washers, and other components. Remove the hub/rotor, being careful not to drop the outer wheel bearings. As the hub/rotor is pulled forward, the outer wheel bearings will often fall forward.
  8. Once the hub/rotor is removed, remove the retainer bolts securing the rotor and hub together. Inspect the hub and replace if needed."
  9. end removal. install is next... ( covers this)

The bolts will be either 6mmx1.25 or8mmx1.25. The 1.25 is the thread pitch . They are about 12-15mm long. The spanner size is 10mm. I hope you mean the viscous hub to water pump flange or is it the fan from the viscous hub

Right wheel fell off how do I put it back together need a schematic

if your wheel fell off there is no shematic that i know of however check to see if the studs are stripped if so pull the wheel ( POP-OFF THE BEARING CAP WITH A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER) unscrew thew wheel nut and pull the wheel (being careful not to drop the bearings on the ground ) then with an old nut or board (2 by 4) or something similar so you don't flare the stud so that it wont go through the hole. drive studs out and replace (fairly cheap). when you put the new studs in make sure that the teeth on the back of the hub line up with the teeth on the studs before you drive them in.if the whole fell off make sure that the threads on the spline (shaft) are not damaged. if so repair the threads and get new bearings . ( bearings only go in one way) and nut and cotter pin. (if you don't know that the race is any good take the hub to the auto parts store and ask the attendant at the counter) when reassembling do not over tighten the wheel nut and BE SURE TO PUT THE COTTER PIN IN AND BEND 1 PRONG BACK.

2001 4 x 4 tacoma front wheel fell off. Looks

The drive shaft is inserted into a splined hub. The hub has a bearing that is pressed in, and that may have been the cause.
Very rare. Was there any grinding noise before it fell off ?
