1Remove tires. 2 there will be an Alan key on outside of hubs (where you grab to lock or unlock hubs) remove them. 3 you will need either the heavy-duty or light duty sucket to remove the nut. 4 there are springs behind the nut generally but it all comes apart piece by piece. just remember how to put it back together. Its really easy.
Yes, if they are not totally worn out.
if your looking for the front abs sensors thay are located in the hubs, and would have to remove front tire, brakes,caliper, and rotor to remove.
Methinks, 'you really r e a l l y don't want to do that!' Unless, someday when you push the button and want the auto hubs to engage, it really won't matter whether they do or not......
Get a shop manual for about $18 and it has pictures and everything.
The auto hubs do not cause any additional problems on this year model. Simply remove the wheel, unbolt the casliper, remove disk retention bolts, and slide disk from vehicle.
wear gloves, bearings all come out. then you have to remove the sensor off the back of it. along with 6 17mm bolts. How do you change the rotors in the front on a 1998 Isuzu Trooper
the truck has hubs. 4x4 front wheel bearings are not serviceable.
mounted to the front hubs remove calipers and rotors follow the wire that runs to the hub
If 4-wheel drive is not needed, you should unlock the front hubs. Yes, the hubs remain locked even if your front transfer case is not set to 4-wheel drive, and this can be very hard on both the hubs and transfer case.
The hubs lock the axel to the hub, which drives the wheel. With the transfer case in 2WD, the rear driveshaft drives the rear wheels. Without front hubs, in 2WD, as the front tires roll, they spin the axles and the front driveshaft. With lock out hubs, in 2WD and the hubs unlocked only the tires spin. However, in 4WD if you forget to lock the hubs, only the driveshafts and axles spin. When I lived in MI, in the winter I always kept my hubs "locked", this way I could shift into 4WD whenever I needed to without getting out in the cold to "lock" the hubs.
A diagram of the Ford F1 50 front hubs can be obtained from most Ford dealerships. The front hub diagram can be found at most auto-parts stores.
If the hubs are stuck in the lock position you will have to remove them and try to clean them and put fresh grease in them check the springs make shure they are not broken or tenson is gone out of them best idea is to swap them for warn manual hubs as the auto hubs are known for not working properly, i changed mine over to the warn manual locking hubs you can get the kits off e-bay
