Yes. the whole axle assembly has to come apart. This is the way it is with front wheel drive. The bearing assembly simply bolts to the steering knuckle on your vehicle. This at least makes it do-able (it can be done without a press). However, you will have to press (or knock) the hub assembly out of the bearing. This can be done with a hub puller adapter and a large slide hammer. Pull the hub out of the bearing before removing the steering knuckle. It makes life a whole lot easier. Then remove the steering knuckle so you can remove the bolts securing the bearing assembly. Then you will have to beat the bearing assembly out of the steering knuckle. (They can get pretty stuck!)

How do I replace a front wheel bearing?


front wheel bearing is pressed into hub and has retaining clip on rear and then cv axle shaft comes through center and has a nut and keeper pin. Rule of thumb is to replace both front wheel bearings at same time. raise front of vehicle place on jackstands for safety remove front wheels remove brake calipers remove front rotors and cv axles remove steering hub assy from lower ball joint,tie rod end and struts take hub to shop and have bearing pressed out have new bearings pressed in reassemble front wheels in reverse order of disassembly.

Replace front right wheel bearing


This is a hub and bearing assy. You will need to remove the axle nut, brake rotor, caliper assy. There are 3 or 4 bolts that attach the hub assy to the knuckle assy. Most of the time, the hub assy will come out easy and sometime it comes out very hard. Make sure you torque the axle nut to the proper spec, so the bering will not fall apart and will last. Buy a quality hub and bearing assy, so you dont have to do it again.

How do I change the front passenger CV joint?


Easiest approach is to change entire axle. Depends on car, but generally remove wheel, remove axle nut, loosen lower ball joint and separate wheel assy from a-frame. In some cases, tie rod end must be taken loose. Wheel bearing assembly must now be pulled out swinging about the strut to allow axel spindle to come out of the bearing. Once axle is out of the bearing, place a drip pan under the trans and pull the axle out of the trans. Reverse procedure to reinstall.

How do i change the driver side front hub assembly


The vehicle will need to raised on the left (drivers) side and supported. Remove the tire, then the brake caliper assy. Remove the rotor, then remove the axle nut located in the center of the hub assy. Remove the hub/bearing retaining bolts, and then the hub assy. Some times it is corroded into the steering knuckle assy. and will not seem to come out. If this happens, install the axle nut, and wearing safety glasses, pound onto the hub flange from the inside to the outside, until it comes out of the knuckle assy. Then remove the hub assy. Clean the knuckle hole where the bearing with 120 grit sand paper, so the hub/bearing assy will go into the knuckle without damage. Torque the axle nut to specs. Clean the inside of the rotor, where the hub meets it, so it sits flat against the new hub. Install the rotor, caliper assy. Install the wheel and torque the lug nuts to 100 ft pounds. Road test about 5 miles and recheck the lug nuts.

Clicking noise coming from front right tire on a '01 Dodge Ram


as long as your sure its comeing from the front right tire proceed
to get to the bearing you have to take the wheel off first, rotate the rotor to see if you can hear the bearing.
remove wheel remove brakes/caliper/caliper bracket/rotor remove cotter pin/axle nut remove 4 bolts from wheel bearing assy unplug electrical connector for ABS, if has it tap axle end lightly to dislodge fron wheel bearing assy may need pry bar and hammer or air chisel to remove wheel bearing assy from vehicle clean orifice well and installation is the opposite to inspect the bearings take it out , and look for loose or stuck bearings, if it rolls freely chances are its not bad. . if water or dirt gets inside it can ruin the bearing. make sure you pack the bearing with grease. if the bearing is bad just buy a new one. i cant guarantee it is a bearing so good luck.
