Your vehicle is equipped with sealed bearings that are pressed into the hub assembly. If your rear wheel bearings are making noise, you must replace the entire bearing and hub assembly (they cannot be greased).

To replace it, raise and support the vehicle and remove the tire and wheel assembly. Remove the brake drum. Remove the bearing cap, the spring nut and the axle washer. Remove the hub assembly and hub seal. The new hub assembly should come with a new hub seal installed. (See first picture below)

TIP: The brake drum has threaded holes in its face where an 8mm bolt can be inserted to help "push" the drum off of the hub assembly - they can get really stuck. (See second picture below)

I've a 1998 Civic Aerodeck with an ABS problem. The light came on, took it to have it diagnosed, mechanic said 'no problem showing'. With diagnostic equipment still plugged in he reversed about 10 yards....


It sounds like the rear speed sensor is faulty.Where the wiring harness plugs onto the back wheel hub with two wires will be the problem.Remove the harness going to it and check it for 5 volts, if there is put an ohm meter on the two prongs inside the hub connector and spin the wheel by hand.If the resistance doesn't increase or change replace the speed sensor which is unfortunately part of the wheel bearing.Hope this helps

I have a 95 honda civic 2dr coup. when ever the car is in motion i hear squeeking/ grinding from the rear breaks. I don't know what could keep causing this. I just replaced the rear break pads, drum...


you may need a hub bearing. do you know which side? they're relatively easy to check; just jack up rear of car, release e-brake and rotate each wheel, listening for any noise or rumble; another way is to place your hand on the coil spring while spinning the wheel, as any rumbling that can't be heard will be felt in the spring. hope this helps.

98 disco 300tdi with rear wheel bearing problems


I would just replace the bearings, They're not that expensive and they're quite easy to replace. After replacement, if it happens again on the same wheel, you probably have a bent semi-axel. I had this exact problem on a '93 200tdi disco.

I need instructions on how to replace rear wheel bearings on my 1994 Honda Civic


Bearings are pressed into the hubs...much easier, faster and economical (if you don't have a press) to replace the complete bearing/hub assembly, no pressing is needed, since bearings are already pressed into the new hubs. Cost..aprox, 60 buxs each.
Here are the steps for the rear replacement...
Loosen the lug nuts on a rear wheel. 2) Chock the wheels and jack the rear of the car on the side with the lug nuts that you just loosened. 3) Remove the wheel by removing the lug nuts. 4) Pry open the dust cap covering the center of the axle/spindle. A small screwdriver tapped into the space between the hub and dust cap will work well for this. 5) With the dust cap now removed, use a thin center punch to straighten the little dent in the rim of the spindle nut so that you will be able to turn it freely in the next step. 6) Use a 32mm socket and a large breaker-bar to loosen the spindle nut. Unscrew the nut all the way and place it in a clean, safe area. 7) You should now be able to slide the hub/bearing assembly from the shaft. 8) Installation is the reverse of removal. Use plenty of high-temperature wheel bearing grease on all surfaces before you mount the replacement hub assembly.

IMPORTANT: Torque the spindle nut to 134 ft/lbs....(per manual specs)

When reinstalling the dust caps, tap them gently into place to avoid denting them...Install wheels, jack her down and pat yourself on the back...job complete.
Good luck..hope this will fixya up...please take time to leave me a fixya rateing...

Wheel bearing trouble


This probably is a job you should leave for a good shop. I'm not saying that to discourage you. This style of wheel bearing requires the use of special pullers and installer tools. I have seen many experienced techs screw this job up. Because of the way the bearings are made, they have to be removed off the hub flange and installed in the knuckle with extreme care or the bearing will be damaged. If you do go ahead with this at home, have some very experienced help handy, this is not a job you can do over the internet.
