How do I remove a stuck outer wheel bearing from the front end of a ford f150?
Re: My husband won't listen to me. I told him to soak the part with the stuck bushing in a tub of gasoline until all the grime comes off and then maybe the new bushing will come out. But he's upset, he put it in a clamp and is trying to pound it out with a chisel. I guess we're going to have to buy another new bushing. Ellen Well, he got the new bushing out, bright and shiny, all in one piece. He made some adjustments to it (filed it, I guess), put it back in and is quite happy. I saw an Answer about taking the part to a shop and having them remove it and press it back in. Thank you; Vern will probably do that with the other one. Ellen
take off the wheel. crack axel nut and pull out carter pin. remove the rotor and brake pads. bang on the axle until it comes out fom the wheel bearing.. most Mitsubishi as in the 99 and up years seem to heat up while driving and then becoming stuck into the wheel bearing causing the axle not to come out. make sure you grease up the whole axle before putting back in
It might be necessary to remove the outer nut and bearing to remove the drum. If it's just rusted on you'll need some WD 40 to get started and a BFH, or big freakin hammer. Bang the drum in the direction of the other side of the car, right at the perimeter of the drum while spinning it. The object is to ring it like a bell and vibrate the rust loose, works every time.
What to do - 1977 Ford Ranger F 250 - replacing new wheel bushings - bushing stuck - how to remove it?
Jack up and safely support front of vehicle. Remove front wheels. Remove front brake calipers and hang them with wire so not to damage brake hoses. Remove brake caliper brackets. Remove brake rotors. Rotors may need a little persuasion with a large hammer as they may be stuck/rusted in place. Reverse order to install rotors.
If it is stuck on the spindle, then you must destroy it to get it off by prying it off and use a cutting wheel to split the race and cold chisel to remove the final piece. Be very careful not to damage the spindle or hub when removing stuck bearings or races. You could try using a 2, 3, or 4-jaw puller to remove stuck wheel bearings, or if they're stuck in the hub…
Depending on what's actually stuck, you may have to pull the rear freeze plug and drive the cam out. Must have the lifters completely out of the way and the timing chain removed. If the cam is stuck to a cam bearing, driving out the cam will ruin the cam bearings, and you may have to cut them off from underneath.
