Question about 2001 Toyota Tacoma
If you get a grinding sound from the bearing when the wheel is off the ground and spinning the you DO NOT grease it...there is no zerk (grease fitting), You have a bad wheel bearing and you must either change the bearing or change the entire wheel hub assembly. Good luck.

Testimonial: "My problem is that when I lock in 4WD the transfer case and drive shaft locks in, but the hubs doesn't lock in. What can my problem be."

Without looking at it, you may have one or more of the following:
Rust on the inside edge of the rotor (most common)
Worn front brake pads
Front wheel bearing problem.
Backing plate (behind rotor) rubbing the rotor
These are the most common causes, you can see 1,2 & 4 with the wheel off.
Hope this helps.

For the most part it is very similar to doing a brake job, you will need to gain access to disc area. once you have removed the caliper you will need to remove the dust cap, this will allow you to remove the nut that secures the disc to the spindle. after you access to the front bearing, remove and set aside, put washer and nut back on, slide rotor out tapping it to remove rear bearing, remove nut/washer and hand pack with wheel bearing grease. re assemble, check and bleed brakes if necessary, Good Luck!

if there is no grease sert on the joints then they are maintenance free. the aftermarket ones will have a fitting on them to shoot grease in.
