How to remove wheel hub

tractors in the automotive section..hmmmm lets see..the hub should have bolts holding the cover on..take them out carefully and remove the hub cover .. gear oil may run out at this point so either drain the axle or catch the oil in some sort of container..then there is a gear that needs supplies power from the drive axle to the wheel hub..once thats done there is a retaining ring or large nut that holds the wheel center on the axle..this retainer needs removed and the wheel should come off..some are hydraulically operated so there will be hoses to undo also..good luck..

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.

Hi, i want to change the rear brake shoes on a 95 toyota granvia , is the hub nut left hand or right hand thread as it wont budge, thanx.

That nut is a locking nut and requires you to remove a locking washer from the hub itself, I use a flat head screw driver and a rubber mallet ( tapping with a medium strength) to free it up this usually needs to be replaced.

How hard is it to change the front wheel berings and what tools are needed? Then how is it done?

first im amazed it needs bearings. raise the front end and remove the wheel. undo the big nut in the center of the hub. undo the abs plug . on the back of the hub is 3 bolts remove these and using a press or rubber mallet push the cv axle in. it should pull the hub out as you do it. replace with a new hub assembly and your good to go. make sure to rehook the abs plug and clip it to the holes were the old was clipped. heres a couple pictures to help guide you. hope this helpsonetufshoppe_69.gifonetufshoppe_68.gif

Trying to remove the inner rear wheel on my dually-diesel. Never had to before. Removed the inner bolts, won't budge. Is there anything else to "remove" or do I just start beating it with a mallet?

yes these are now on a "pilot hub" and any dust/dirt will make them seize,wet them down and carefully beat the inner wheel loose,after removal though do not use any "anti-seize" compound on anything when replacing the dual assembly,but a little grease on the outer nut/washer combo so the washer spins freely of the cap nut is recommended
