How to replace a rear wheel bearing hub?


Remove brake components, remove centre cover to expose securing nut, remove nut and using a 3 jaw puller remove the bearing and hub. The inner race will remain on the spindle and will need to be cut off being carefully not to cut the spindle. I use a cutting torch to achieve this. ER the spindle cool befor installing the new bearing/hub assy. Don't forget to torque the nut to spec. I can't remember offhand what it is but if you over tighten it the braring life will be reduced. Also use a new nut as they are one time use and may loosen over time if reused.
Good luck!

Holden instruction manual


telling people which holden from which year might be useful.

in general terms you usually pop off a cover in the centre to reveal a large castellated nut with a cotter pin. Remove pin , remove nut, this usually gives you access to the bearings. Before all that you will have had to do something with the brakes depending on what model/year you are talking about.

How to replace rear wheel bearings on a 2000 cougar?


Hi,welcome to fixya.


The rear wheel bearings are not adjustable. If the bearings make noise or become loose, they must be replaced.

Removal & Installation

With Drum Brakes

NOTE The wheel bearings are contained within the wheel hub and must be replaced as an assembly.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Remove the anti-lock sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
  5. Remove the brake drum retainer and the brake drum.
  6. Remove the hub retaining nut dust cover.
    NOTE Do not use an impact gun to remove the hub retainer nut.

To install:
  1. Reinstall the hub and bearing assembly to the spindle.
  2. Reinstall the hub retainer nut. Tighten the retainer nut to 170-192 ft. lbs. (230-260 Nm).
    WARNING Do not use an impact gun to tighten the hub retainer nut, otherwise the bearings may be damaged.
  3. Install the hub retaining nut dust cover.
  4. Reinstall the brake drum.
  5. Check the brake shoes for proper adjustment.
  6. Reinstall the anti-lock sensor and the retaining bolt. Tighten the retaining bolt to 7-8 ft. lbs. (9-11 Nm).
  7. Reinstall the wheel and tire assembly. Tighten the wheel nuts to 62 ft. lbs. (85 Nm).
  8. Lower the vehicle until the wheels are supporting the vehicles weight. This will properly load the suspension.
  9. Tighten the spindle-to-control arm bolt to 52-79 ft. lbs. (70-98 Nm).
  10. Tighten the tie rod-to-spindle bolt to 75-102 ft. lbs. (102-135 Nm).

How hard is to change front bearings and special tools??


No special tools, not hard, get the parts, rubber gloves, can of grease, and a couple hours time, turn off the cell fone. Pull the wheel, remove dust cover, pull cotter pin, remove brake caliper, hang from wire, remove nut on spindle, bump rotor with rubber mallet, the bearings should pop out, pull the hub off, knock out the inner seal and bearings, replace with new bearing packed with grease, replace seal, put hub back on, put on outer bearing, packed with grease, washer, nut, tighten up snug by hand, then back off so wheel spins free and doesn't rock, put in cotter pin, dust cover, caliper, tighten up, your all set. Too tight will burn up bearings, too loose and you will hear it rocking back and forth. Hope this helps.

How tight should the nut be on the front wheel bearings for a 2006 f250 two wheel drive.


  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Support the front end.
  4. Remove the wheel cover, if equipped.
  5. Remove the grease cap.
    NOTE Check the wheel bearings for sufficient grease.
  6. Remove the cotter pin and retaining washer. Back off the spindle nut. Discard the cotter pin.
  7. Adjust the wheel bearings as follows:
    1. Tighten the spindle nut to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) while rotating the brake disc clockwise to seat the wheel bearings.
    2. Back off the nut 2 full turns.
    3. While rotating the disc counterclockwise, tighten the nut to 17-24 ft. lbs. (23-34 Nm).
    4. Back off the spindle nut about 1 / 2 turn.
    5. Tighten the spindle nut to 17 inch lbs. (2 Nm).

  8. Install the retaining washer so the castellations are aligned with the cotter pin hole. Install a new cotter pin.
  9. Check the wheel and tire assembly for proper rotation, then install the grease cap. If the wheel still does not rotate properly, inspect and clean or replace the wheel bearings and cups.
  10. Install the wheel cover, if equipped.
  11. Lower the vehicle.
  12. Road test the vehicle and check for proper operation.

To check the wheel bearing adjustment, raise the front of the vehicle. Grasp the tire at the sides, and alternately push inward and pull outward on the tire. If any looseness is felt, adjust the front wheel bearings as follows.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove the hub cap from the hub.
  3. Remove the cotter pin and the castellated nut.
  4. While rotating the wheel, tighten the adjusting nut to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm) to seat the bearings.
  5. Back off the adjusting nut until loose (120-180 degrees).
  6. While rotating the wheel, tighten the adjusting nut to 18 inch lbs. (2Nm). Torque required to rotate the hub should be 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  7. Install the castellated nut and insert a new cotter pin.
  8. Install the hub cap

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...

Suspect drum bearings


most lg front loaders have the plastic outer drums which have about 16 h/duty screws holding the two halves together. extreemly tricky to strip to gain access to inner bearing and seal. Th/stat, motor, piping and other items have to be removed and dissassembled to enable drum to be removed. that repair i suggest for a service repair.
