Torque setting for rear wheel bearing nut.Fiat Punto HGT Diesel 2004 plate

I have fitted a Genuine rear wheel hub complete with bearings. The old bearing hub nut was not that tight coming off the stub shaft and was fitted with thread locker. I have seen figures of 280Nm right down to tightening the bearing and then backing off a quarter of a turn.
Your help would be greatly appreciated

PS The car was a Punto not a Pininfarina, however the drop down boxes could not be edited for some reason. I had to choose a car from the list ?

On a 2002 Lincoln LS ..... I ahve a rear axle bearing noise. Is it necessary to open the "pumpkin" to release the axle from inside the axle or is there a bolted flange retainer behind the rear...


Hello lemofla: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. It is not necessary to remove the rear axle from the differential in order to replace the wheel bearing. This operation does require some special tools and alignment of the car to complete the job. You will need to remove the nut on the axle stub at the rear wheel hub. The rear brakes and spindle unit must be removed. The splash shield rivets must be drilled out so the shield is not damaged. You will need a press and snap ring pliers in order to remove the bearing hub from the old bearing. Once the hub is removed you will need to press the bearing out of the spindle.When all is reassembled the dust shield should be reattached with new aluminum rivets. Reinstall the spindle and brakes. Torque the axle nut to 221 (ft.lb.). It may also be necessary to push the axle shaft stub out of the hub with a puller as the axle can be stuck. As you can tell this is not a quick fix and does take special equipment. So if you do this yourself PLEASE be careful and pay close attention to the way things came apart and be sure to have the car realigned. Should you not realign the car it will not drive right and you will prematurely destroy the tire on the side worked on. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Mazda 323/Protege front wheel bearing


The moment you can hear a loud noise coming from front wheels while driving straight that means that your wheel bearings are ready for replacement. In a Mazda 323 BJ (1999-2004) it usually comes every 150-200 thousand kilometers (95-120k miles). To replace the bearing (do two of them in one go even if only one can be heard) you need to do as follows:
Loosen the nut on the half shaft, jack up the car, remove the wheel, dismantle brake caliper and brake disc, remove all ball joints attached to the hub, detach the shock absorber from the hub (no need of removing it completely), once you have the hub basically hanging on the half shaft, untie the nut and pull the hub out of the shaft so you can hold it in your hands. You will need to go to a garage with a 12ton (minimum) press, no point of trying to hammer the bearing out as you may damage the hub and your whole work will be for nothing. Get the old bearing pressed out and the new one pressed in.The Mazda part numbers for the front bearing kit are: B455-33-047A(B,D),GJ21-33-042B,G304-33-065,B21M-33-048.
After getting the bearing fitted into the hub, all we need is to reverse the whole process, put the shaft into the hub, attached the hub to the shock absorber (makes it easier to attach the rest), put the nut and tight it just as much to feel there is nearly no movement (do not overtight it as this might damage the bearing), attach all ball joints back to the hub. Make sure all nuts are tight, use a
tension wrench when needed, put the brake disc back on the hub, install the brake caliper, once you have all them on and tight put on the wheel, then get someone to press the brake while you tight the shaft nut with the tension wrench, check the wheel for play or hard movement. Lower the car down and take a slow drive around (do not accelerate sharply or brake rapidly, just a gentle drive around. Normally a wheel bearing should be in correct position and use after about 200km (120 miles) distance. After that check if it is not overheating (too tight) or there is a play (too loose). Tight or untight if necessary, recheck after same 200km (120 miles).

How to change wheel bearings on jaguar xj6 front 1996


Disconnect the vehicle battery ground lead.
Support the vehicle at the front and remove the appropriate wheel.
Remove brake caliper and disc assemblies see SRO 70 10
Note- Do not allow the caliper to hang by either harness or
flexible hose.

Pry off the hub grease cap
Remove and discard cotter pin
pull off castellated nut retainer
Remove the hub nut and bearing washer.
Carefully remove the hub assembly from the stub axle.

Pry the original seal from the spigot and discard.
remove the bearings and using a drift punch knock out the bearing cups.
Remove all traces of grease and dirt from the stub axle and back plate.
Note: the backing plate may be used to pull the inner bearing and seal if they stay on the stub shaft.
Press in the new bearing cups using a socket or other tool of the correct size to prevent damaging the new bearing cup or hub.
Note: Do not use bearing to press in the cup.
Pack the annular gaps of the oil seal lips with grease.
Wash the hub assembly thoroughly.
Ensure that the hub inner seal diameter is free of debris or damage and is lightly lubricated prior to assembly.
Only replace complete bearings, never cup or race in isolation.
Pack each race with approximately 4 ml of grease and position the inner race onto the stub axle.
Apply a smear of grease to hub inner surfaces and bearing cups. Assemble the hub to the stub axle followed by outer race, bearing washer and hub nut.
It is not necessary to fill the hub cavity with grease, merely protect from corrosion with a coat of lubricant. Seat the bearings by slightly tightening the hub nut whilst rotating the hub. Do not apply load without rotation.

Adjust End float. Set a Dial Test Indicator and adjust the hub nut to achieve the correct end float.
.001-.003"
As the adjustment is made, continually load the hub axially in both directions.
Without disturbing the end float setting, fit the castellated
nut retainer so that it aligns with both hub nut and stub axle drilling.
Secure nut retainer using a new cotter pin.

Reassemble brake rotor and caliper. Bolts MUST be tightened to specification
operation of the braking system verified.
Reassemble wheel

I have a chrysler lhs 1994 with a bad front wheel bearing and i need instruction on repair


These are the steps you need to follow for this procedure if you have the proper tools.
  1. Remove front caliper assembly and rotor from the steering knuckle as outlined under "Caliper, Replace" in the "Disc Brake" unit repair section.
  2. Remove hub and bearing to stub axle retaining nut.
  3. Disconnect hub bolts then remove hub and bearing assembly from steering knuckle by sliding it straight off end of stub axle. If metal seal on hub and bearing assembly is seized to steering knuckle and becomes dislodged on hub and bearing assembly during removal, or when removing hub and bearing, the finger disc on hub becomes damaged, hub and bearing assembly must be replaced.
  4. If hub and bearing will not slide out of knuckle, insert a prybar between hub and steering knuckle and gently pry hub and bearing from knuckle.
  5. Tighten stub shaft nut, lower vehicle and with brakes applied, torque stub shaft nut to 70 - 90 ft. lbs.

Replace front passenger side u-joint on 4x4 drive axil


The wheels have to be removed, along with the brake calipers. There are four bolts that hold the unit hub bearing onto the front knuckles. The hubs have a very tight tolerance area that fits into the knuckle.
Sometimes the hub siezes into the knuckle and this is where the labor and parts can pile up. What makes this even more difficult is that the brake rotor can only be removed after the hub is knocked out of the knuckle, so it all has to come out as an assembley.

There is a nut in the middle of the hub. That nut is on the end of the axle stub, which passes through the hub bearing. If they make good time getting the hub and all out, they can still get stuck trying to get the stub shaft out of the hub. And it will have to come out to get the U joint out. Replacing the U joints should be straight forward.

I would like to know if the wheel bearing is in the shaft or the hub?


The Constant Velocity (CV) joints are located on the inner and outer edges of the axle shaft. The axle shaft runs through the hub and bearing in the spindle.

Wheel bearing


the rear bearing is pressed into the hub so take the hubs off and take to a engineering shop to have the new one pressed in ,now the front ones are similar in as much as they need pressing in and out ,DO NOT TRY TO DO IT WITH A BIG HAMMER ,its dangerous ,remove the wheel trim and slacken the big nut in the middle ,think its a 32mm then jack vehicle up remove the wheel ,undo the brake caliper by the 2 bolts that hold it to the stub axle ,slacken bolt on track rod end but do not remove fully and then wack the end of the stub axle where the track rod end goes through .One good wack with a 1kg hammer will do it on the end of the steering /stub axle shaft without damaging anything because you have left the nut on loose.then remove the bottom track control arm pinch bolt it has a star head and a 17 mm nut on the other end ,use a lengh of scaffold pole or a big crow bar to pull the track control arm down so the ball joint come apart ,take the stub axle off and in the back is a big circlip but leave it alone and just take it to the engineering shop ,its very dangerous to try to remove the bearing with a big hammer and drift because it can and will chip and hit you in the face trust me on this

How do you change the front bearings


hi, now this is a big job and the nut you need to undo you will need a air gun to undo is as it is torqued up that tight that you wont undo it using any hand tools but here is how you do it.
1. put car on axle stands so wheels are off the floor and remove the wheels.
2. On the side that the bearing needs replacing you need to undo the bottom ball joint witch is under neath the disk break should be just one nut and bolt.
3. is best to undo the track rod end from the steering rack this is the tie rod and should be located in the wheel hub towards the drivers door and is held in place with one nut from under neath.
4. after you undo both of these you will then need a ball joint splitter to sepperate these parts from the hub as they will be to tight to remove from their locating possition.
5. now to get to the bearing itself this is where you need an airgun or similar tool they use in a garage. now right at the centre of the wheel hub you will see a really bug nut attatched to the end of the drive shaft and you can see the end off the drive shaft coming through the hub. I think the nut is nearly a 30m or 32m socket to undo.
6. Once this is undone gently tap the end of the drive shaft through the hub whilst gently pulling the hub outwards dont pull the hub outwards if the drive shaft isnt coming free from the hub as you can pull the drive shaft out of the gearbox and then you will have a right mess with geasrbox oil everywhere as the drive shaft is only push fit into gear box.

If the drive shaft is coming free from the hub then keep pulling the hub towards you untill the drive shaft is free (secure driveshaft with string so as not to put stress on the drive shaft bearing).
Now you should be able to remove the old bearing and insert the new make sure you clean the old bearing out properly and use new grease to lube the new bearing.

When doing the drive shaft back up you need to use air gun again to tighten the nut up enough to be safe to drive as their is alot of pressure on these parts.
You wont undo the nut without a air compressor and air tools buying these would be more expensive than paying a garage to do the repairs themselves.
Please choose carefully as once you have started if you have any problems you cant take the car to a garage as it will be in bits.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
If you are going to do this yourself then please buy a workshop manual as this will give you the correct torque settings as the bearing has to be torqued up to a required setting else the bearing will just fail again.

Let me know how you get on ok.

or if you need further assistance ok
