SOURCE: Front Wheel Bearing Shot - Please help!

I might have the right size internal bearing puller at work. It looks a little like this... but uses a threaded bolt instead of a slide hamer.

SOURCE: Front wheel bearing removal.

The bearings get punched out of the hub evenly. Just take a small to medium sized hammer and a large punch and drive the old bearings outward from the center of the hub. Install the new bearings somewhat more gently than the old ones came out. The bearings must go into the hub straight. Tap them in with a plastic hammer. Once the bearing is started, place the old bearing on top of the new one and strike around the outer rim of the old bearing to seat the new bearing.

SOURCE: Removal of front wheel bearings for replacement.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Go to the "FRONT WHEEL" tab then enlarge the image if needed. This will show the construction of the assembly. It sounds like you have a good handle on the repair. Remove each bearing from the opposite side. Yes , just drive the bearings out with a rod smaller than the axle.

I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, and I am only trying to help. So if you will, > > > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Wheel bearing

If grinding noise is heard coming from front side, lift up both the front wheels and rotate the wheels one by one to listen to the sound, if any. If a noise is heard, replace the front wheel bearings as a set.
If the front wheels do not produce any abnormal noise when rotated, lift down the front vehicle. Lock the front wheels with blocks, release the hand brake. lift up the rear wheels and try to listen to the abnormal noise. If the noise is heard, replace the differential bearings and seals. Top up the differential oil to the mark.

2wd front wheel need to replace bearings or hub assembly which is best

A Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Can Have Two Types Of Rear Wheel Bearings: Serviceable Bearings, Or Nonserviceable, Sealed Bearings. When Sealed Bearings Fail, The Bolts Holding The Bearing And Hub To The Axel Or Control Arm Must Be Removed. When Installing The New Bearing Assembly, Torque The Bolts To Specifications.Some Manufacturers require The Use Of New Fasteners When Rear Bearings And Hubs Are Replaced.

When A Serviceable Wheel Bearing Is Used, The Bearing Can Be Disassembled And Packed With Grease.It Is Serviced Like A Front Wheel Bearing On A Rear-wheel-Drive-Car.
