Really, this depends on the vehicle in question. Usually, it becomes obvious by looking at the vehicle with the wheel removed and a new part in plain sight. That in mind, if you know you need one you also know how to put it in. If you don't know how to do it, you also don't know that you need to do it.

Take the wheel off. Look in the center of the axle. There is a big nut in there with a cotter pin through it. Take out the cotter pin, and remove the nut. If it's a disc brake, the bearing will come out with the disc. If it's a drum, you can take it out by itself.

answerhub bearings usually have to be pressed out of the hub/rotor/drum once they are removed from the vehicle.

typically a hub bearing kit, or hub bearing assembly, comes with everything you need to replace the hub bearing.

You can replace both... Bearing or Hub... Bearings are cheaper, but harder to find and replace. Hub assemblies are easier to replace, but slightly more expensive.

If, after close inspection you do not see any damage to hub, you can use it. But ALWAYS install new bearing race with bearing.

The front wheel bearing is a sealed unit with the wheel hub - replace the hub and wheel bearing unit. Remove the four bolts from the rear of the steering knuckle that connect to the hub bearing unit.

The front bearing for a Dodge Stratus is attached to the Hub. To replace it remove all the components on the hub assembly. There are three bolts that hold the assembly in place. Loosen the bolts and pry out the hub. Replace the unit.

A wheel bearing is pressed in to the hub so that it is able to safely operate. To replace a bearing on a Chevy Impala remove the hub from the car and take the unit to a machinist. Have the press out the old bearing and press in the new one.

You can purchase the bearing only or the entire hub assembly. It is usually more difficult to find and replace the bearing only.

you need to press out the bearing inside the hub assembly.

How do you replace rear wheel hub and bearing.

User Avatar

You have to remove the entire wheel assembly to get to the hub bearing, take the old hub bearing out along with the race, pount the new race in, grease the new hub bearing, put that in, then reassemble. If you're not sure how to do this, either leave it to a pro, or buy yourself a Chilton or Haynes manual.

You don't. The bearing is made into the hub and the whole hub must be replace. It's not too hard though, me and buddys at work did it in the parking lot in less than half an hour.

It's a sealed unit with the hub. You have to replace the whole hub assembly.

how hard is it to replace a rear wheel bearing 1999 Honda crv. this crv does not have rear axle's in it. thank you

User Avatar

You have to replace the front hub. The bearing is press-fit into the hub, and you cannot order it separately. Several hundred dollars for the part, plus labor.

User Avatar

the same way you would replace any hub assembly, take the wheel off, take off any bolts that connect the hub to the driveshaft and then replace it

The ABS sensor is part of the hub wheel bearing assembly. The hub wheel bearing will have to be replaced. This involves removing the wheel, the hub axel nut and then three torx screws which attach the hub wheel bearing assembly to the steering knuckle. A puller tool will be neede to separate the hub bearing from the steering knuckle. If the hub bearing is heavily rusted to the steering knuckle you may need to heat the metal in order to loosen the rust connection.

most likely you will have to replace the hub bearing assembly autozone for about $80

They're the same thing. What I mean is that the bearing lies between the axle and the hub, and the wheel is bolted to the hub.

Wheel bearing are what allow wheels to spin smoothing on an axle. A broken wheel bearing can lead to fatal car accidents. To replace a wheel bearing on a Volvo s80 remove the wheel hub and have the bearing pressed out. Press the new bearing into the wheel hub to ensure a safe install.

User Avatar

The wheel bearings are not really replaceable by themselves. This is because they are integrated into the hub assembly. So the answer is that you will have to replace the entire hub assembly to replace the bearings.

User Avatar

It has 1 big hub bearing per side and you can not service them. It has factory sealed bearings. If there bad then you must replace the bearing.

You need to replace the rear wheel hub - bearing and speed sensor inclusive
