Front wheel bearing instalation

Engage the emergency brake. Place the socket end of the tire wrench over the lug nuts and turn 45 degrees to break the nuts loose. Do not unseat the wheel from the wheel hub.
  • 2Jack the Sentra into the air using the factory front jack point. This is located behind the radiator.
  • Finish loosening the lug nuts and remove the wheel.
  • 4Unbolt the upper and lower caliper mounting bolts and lift the caliper off the brake rotor.
  • 5Secure the brake caliper to the coil springs above the brake system with zip ties.
  • 6Slide the brake rotor off the hub assembly.
  • 7Remove the bearing cap on your Sentra. To do this, you need to use channel locks. Grab the bearing cap with the end of the channel locks. Then, twist the channel locks back and forth. You will eventually be able to loosen the bearing cap so that you can pull it off.
  • 8Grab the end of the cotter pin on the spindle nut with pliers and pull it out of the nut. You may need to pull fairly hard, but the pin will come out.
  • 9Turn the spindle nut counterclockwise to remove the spindle nut.
  • 10Tap the wheel bearing out of place with a rubber mallet or a hammer.
  • 11Tap the bearing races out of the hub with a hammer and punch tool. You need to do this for both sides of the hub.
  • 12Clean the inside of the hub, the spindle, as well as the spindle nut brake parts cleaner and wipe them dry with a clean rag.
  • 13Install the new wheel bearing. Tap the new bearing into the hub using a rubber mallet. Make sure you are using a rubber mallet so that you do not damage the new bearing.
  • 14Reassemble the hub assembly, brake assembly, and put the wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts so that the wheel sits flush against the wheel hub. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  • 15Lower the Sentra to the ground and set the dial on a torque wrench to 100 lb-ft. Tighten the lug nuts clockwise until the wrench clicks. This will indicate that the proper torque value has been reached.

    I've changed rotors before but never on a 4 wheel drive. Could you tell me how to on a 1989 ford ranger?

    Brake Rotor (Disc) - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    1. Loosen the wheel lug nuts.
    2. Jack up the front of the vehicle and support on jackstands.
    3. Remove the wheel and tire.
    4. Remove the brake caliper assembly as described earlier in this section, but do not disconnect the brake hose.
    5. Suspend the caliper assembly by a piece of wire. Do not allow it to hang by the brake hose.
    6. Follow the procedure given under wheel bearing removal in Suspension and Steering for models with manual and automatic locking hubs (lines down).
    New rotor assemblies come protected with an anti-rust coating which should be removed with denatured alcohol or degreaser. New hubs must be packed with EP wheel bearing grease.
    1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

    ABS enguaging on its own. Replaced both front wheel bearings. What would cause this? Had a recent MVI done and the Mechanic said the front Right wheel bearing need to replaced. He put a new on on and...

    Not supposed to use air gun on axle nut

    Torque Wrench -- as you did

    Check Wheel Sensors -- one may be bad or more
    likely the mechanic damaged it.

    Use a Volt Meter --put on A/C unplug sensor &
    put meter on wires and spin the wheels

    Do all four & compare

    Need to get to the front wheel bearings in the

    jack up and support the front end on stands remove the wheel then remove the outer hub screws and then pull the hub out next you should see a large nut with square notches around the out side of the nut you will need the proper "spanner wrench"to remove this,once you remove the spanner nut there will be a large washer behind that with a small tab holes,that shim will pull out ,next remove the inner spanner nut(the same as the first one).This inner nut will have a small tab on it and fits into the shim you just removed make sure when you reinstall this nut and shim ring the tab and a hole line back up.Sorry I forgot to mention you need to remove the brake caliper also,just remove the two pressure rods(one on top and one on the bottom)by taking a hammer and a punch and gently tapping them outwards once they are out the caliper is able to be removed and swung up out of the way.Once the hub and inner nuts and shim are remove you will see the outer bearings and they come right out,for the rear bearings in the back of the hub you can pull out the old seal and remove the rear bearings.hope this helps its not as bad as it may seems once you've done one set they become easier for the next time

    The rear wheel speed sensor is part of the hub/bearing assembly. Refer to Wheel Hub and Bearing Replacement in Rear Suspension for service procedures.

    I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Have a nice day, good luck.

    Cannot find tool to loosen front wheel bearing lock nut

    I have a 1995 Geo Tracker 4WD with the same exact problem,However I did some research . You will need to go to the Kent Moore Website which makes specialty tools and look up Wheel bearing socket "J-37763" I saw the picture of it and it looks like there are 4 small rounded teeth/tabs. Unfortunately get ready to spend some money - cost is about $70.00 not including shipping/handling
    I hope that this Info. helps - Jim H.

    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.
