#3) Now Right in The Center of Your HUB you'll see a Dome Cap Remove the Cap,Now Remove the Cotter Pin, then the Spindle Nut and Washer.

#4) Now you'll pull your Hub Assembly Off ,The Outside Bearing will more or Less Fall off the Hub.But you'll need to Remove the Outer Bearing Race Its the Metal Angled Race.

#5) Before you remove the Outer Race take a Seal Remover and Remove The Grease Seal on the Inside of Hub.

#6) Now the Inner Bearing Will Come Out.You NOW Can Remove Innner and Outer Races.Use a Puch and Hammer Lightly Tap it by Working your Punch Side to Side.

#7) Now You've Remove BOTH inner and Outer Bearing Assemblies.

#8) Before you Start to Install New Races ,Get some Brake Clean and Clean The Inner Hub and the Spindle Good.

#9) Use a Bearing Race Installer Tool to Tap your New Bearing Races in.NOTE: you Don't want to Scar the Beveled Part of the Race Cause thars Where your Bearings Rotate.

#9) Races are in : Now take a Wheel Bearing Packer if you have 1 Availible: If not Pack As Much Heavy Duty Hi Temp Bearing Grease Into the Bearings. And Put some on the Spindle Were your Bearing Run on.

#10) Now Using a Seal Installer Tap your Inner Grease Seal into the Inner Hub Housing.

#11) OK Now your Ready to Put Your Hub Back on:Note: Put a Little Grease in The Domed Cap after you've Got the Hub On.

#12) DON"TS Get Grease on your Brakes or anywhere in The Brake Pad Assembly. #2) Don't Use the OLD Cotter Pin Get a New One. :#3) When Adjusting your Spindle Nut Don't Under Tighten or Over Tighten==Just Snug it down where theres no Play when you Take your Hands 1-Top=1 Bottom and Make Sure theres No Play.

Rotate The Hub During And When Tightening your Spindle Nut.

    See Figures 1 and 2
    All Models except AWD Vehicles
    1. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
    2. Remove wheel and tire assembly. Remove grease cap from the hub.
    3. Remove the pin, nut retainer, adjusting nut and flatwasher from spindle. Discard the cotter pin.
    4. Pull hub and drum assembly off spindle being careful not to drop outer bearing during removal.
    5. Remove the outer bearing assembly.
    6. Using a seal remover, remove and discard grease seal. Remove inner bearing assembly from hub.
    7. Wipe all lubricant from spindle and inside of hub. Cover spindle with a clean cloth and vacuum all loose dust and dirt from brake assembly. Carefully remove cloth to prevent dirt from falling on spindle.
    8. Clean both bearing assemblies and cups using solvent. inspect bearing assemblies and cups for excessive wear, scratches, pits or other damage. Replace all worn or damaged parts as required.

    Allow the solvent to dry before repacking bearings. Do not spin-dry bearings with air pressure.
    1. If cups are replaced, remove them with wheel hub cup remover D80L-927-A and bearing cup puller T77F-1102-A or equivalent.

    To install:
    1. If inner or outer bearing cups were removed, install replacement cups using driver handle T80T-4000-W and bearing cup replacers T77F-1202-A and T73T-1217-A or equivalent. Support drum hub on wood block to pre}vent damage. Insure cups are properly seated in hub.

    Do not use cone and roller assembly to install cup as this will cause damage to bearing cup and cone and roller assembly.
    1. Ensure all spindle and bearing surfaces are clean.
    2. Using a bearing packer, pack bearing assemblies with a suitable wheel bearing grease. If a packer is not available, work in as much grease as possible between the rollers and the cages. Grease the cup surfaces.
    3. Place inner bearing cone and roller assembly} in inner cup. Apply light film of grease to lips of a new grease seal and install seal with rear hub seal replacer T81P-1249-A or equivalent. Ensure retainer flange is seated all around.
    4. Apply light film of grease on spindle shaft bearing surfaces.
    5. Install hub and drum assembly on spindle. Keep hub centered on spindle to prevent damage to grease seal and spindle threads.

    Hi, Remove the tire
    Remove the entire brake caliper and use string/wire to hang it out of the way. DO NOT LET THE BRAKE HOSE SUSPEND THE CALIPER! DO NOT LET THE CALIPER HANG FROM THE BRAKE HOSE! Use something to hold it out of the way other than the brake hose. Remove the large locking nut on the center of the hub. Do not re-use it. Get a new one for reassembly. That ****** is on there big-time tight so you will need an impact wrench. You will not be able to remove it unless you have a 6 foot cheater bar or an impact wrench and I've never seen a 6 foot cheater bar. If you don't have an impact wrench you will not succeed at this project. Go to Lowe's and pick up an electric one for 40 bucks. They're awesome for removing lawnmower blades too! Do this before you take things apart so you can drive your car. After removing the hub lock nut, remove 3 bolts behind the hub assembly that hold the assembly to the strut. Remove the wiring for the antilock. It runs up the wheel well and into the engine compartment. After everything is unbolted/unwired, remove the hub assembly by pulling it. You may need a may need a rubber hammer or some leverage to get it to move. Be careful not to damage the splines on the spindle once the hub is removed. Do everthing in reverse to put it back on.
    Take care

    Mazda mpv 2006 repack wheel bearing


    There is a little difference between the front and rear. The days of packing wheel bearing is almost over. The front bearing you have to pull the hub and change to bearing. The rear wheel you have to change out the hub bearing and all. The front is a sealed bearing and not serviceable. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

    How to change a rear wheel bearing on a 1994 toyota camry


    The rear wheel bearing on a toyota camry is replaced by replacing the wheel bearing and hub as a unit. this is a design change as compare to older models with two piece wheel bearings. Scotch drive wheels. Remove rear wheel. Remove rear brake drum. (note: if emergency brakes are applied you will not be able to remove brake drum) Remove dust cap and hub retaining nut. Hub should slide off as unit. Replace hub with new unit. Installation is reverse of removal.
