You cannot replace the main bearings without removing the engine. only the rod bearings are replaceable if the oil pan will clear chassis for access to crank shaft. Why do you need main bearings on a 2007, these bearings should be good for 500,000 miles. what happened? (run without oil?)
all vehicles are similar. remove wheel,remove axle nut,remove tie rod ,remove lower ball joint ,pull spindal and rotor back pushing axle thru at same time,use pry bar to pop axle from tranny, reversal to install, push axle into tranny,pull spindal/rotor back install axle end into hole reset lower ball joint ,tie rod end. then most important TORQUE AXLE NUT TO PROPER SPECS if you dont you will ruin the wheel bearing. not fun to do in the driveway and sometimes all these parts are a real pain to remove even on a hoist with the proper tools so beware and for the love of life dont hammer on the end of the axle
There is one bearing in rear tub/bearing is part of rear tub...To repair that unit you will need a rear tub/inner basket with spindal and possible a front tub if it damaged..If i was you I would price the parts b/c you may not want to repair it as it can be costly .....Good luck
what I do is put a glob of grease in the palm of my hand and push bearing down in to grease untill you see the grease come out of the bearing or you can go to your local parts store and get a bearing grease packer. also wipe spindal with a genorus glob and put grease in between bearing in rotor. To get to the bearings all you need to do is remove tire, center cap (outter grease seal) the silver cap in the center. the cotter pin, Nut, washer outter bearing then the rotor will slip off inner bearing is in rotor still being held in by inner grease seal take seal off replace with new one pack your bearings and reverse removal procedure when retightening nut do not make tight just snug the go another turn if you go to tight you will burn your bearings real fast.
Hyundai Tiburon 96-01 uses a outer hub system. To replace front rotors. You'll need front bearings as well. The bearing and hub will need to be pressed out of the spindal. Then replacement of bearing will need to be pressed in. From a shop.Or they can use a slide hammer to remove ,but damages the bearing. Best to buy bearing and have cash for an alignment job too.Then replace front rotors. Rotor and hub install is ez after you get bearing pressed.Rear rotor and bearing are bolt on though.
I don't have a exact spec, but i've done this job several times. I always hand pack the bearings to make sure they're good and lubed, then I assemble the spindle turning the bearing while I'm tighting it down. I apply torque till there isn't any more play left in the spindle, usually no more than 15ft/lbs. then put the pin back in. if you're really worried assemble everything leaving the bearing cap off then try to wiggle it with the tire on if it moves just give it a little more. you just want it tight enough to remove all the play.
