The answer is no. I have changed mine twice in the last six months. All you do is use a large socket to tap the bearing back into the tube. Be sure to make sure the bearing goes in straight and tap squarely on the socket. Make sure your bearing doesn't go in at an angle. If you haven't removed the old bearing yet, you will need a removal tool that looks like a dent puller. These can be rented at Advance Auto.

How do you replace an axle seal and bearing on a 1993 Ford Crown Victoria?

Assuming rear wheel drive and you're replacing the rear axle seal and bearing with drum brakes: With rear axle off the ground, on stands or blocks and parking brake OFF, remove tire/wheel. Pull brake drum, check for retaining plate that holds bearing, it's usually a 4 bolt square plate near the center of the axle. With the axle off, attach an axle shaft puller to the axle and slide the weight vigorously down the shaft until it pulls off. You will need to take the axle shaft to a shop that has a bearing press so that you can remove the old bearing and install the new one. Many auto parts retailers have a bearing press and won't charge to remove and replace a bearing from the shaft if you buy the parts from them.

Install the new bearing and seal, don't forget the retainer plate goes on first! Make dang sure everything is correct and secure or the axle will come lose going down the road.

How do you repair a thrown bearing?

Depends on the type of bearing and where it's used.Usually, it'll be more acurate to talk about replace than repair.For something like a car, a wheel bearing consists of:inner racerollers or ballsouter raceThe inner race is pressed onto an axle, the outer race is pressed into a hub, and the rollers/balls go inbetween them. To replace, you pull the inner race off the axle and the outer race out of the hub. Press on/in the new parts and you're done. The above is simplified, but the exact procedure varies from vehicle to vehicle, so I couldn't give it to you anyhow.
