First off take the wheel and tire off then unbolt the caliper and slide the clip out (may have to tap it out with hammer) drop the caliper off the rotor then take your lockout bolts out and slide the outer part of the lock off. take your finger nail and feel around the inner part of the hub what your looking for there is a snap ring its the size if the hub but is very small and may need to take a pick to get it (some people use a couple screw drivers but its hard that way) after you get that ring out slide the rest of your lockout out. there should me a nut beyond that (it locks the axel nut from backing off.(now some f250's have other snap rings that would come out behind the first nut those are normally easy to get out. then take your axel nut out and the rotor and hub with all come off. tap the old bearings and seal but becareful not to hurt the race it is what the bearing rides on.Last pack your bearings making sure they have plenty of greese inside as well as output them in the same way they cam out (both narrow sides facing each other) then tap your seals in be sure seal is flush. then repeat steps backwards to put it back together.

Always replace inner and outer wheel bearings on the same wheel at the same. You don't necessarily have to replace the bearings in both wheels at the same time, though it's not a bad idea, but always inner and outer on the same wheel at the same time.

just the inner and outter bearings on the front both sides would be about 50-60 dollars

Change the entire drive shaft. Chances are, if the boot needs to be replaced, the axle will go out because moisture and dirt has contaminated the CV bearings.

Yes it does. It has inner and outer bearings.

You cannot rebuild the front hubs, you have to replace them. The inner hubs are sold as a complete unit, the bearings inside cannot be bought seperately. You will have to pull the inner axle shafts and replace the large seal (dealer part only) and the dust cover seal, you will also need the tool that beats the axle shaft back in and the seal on.

No, they are no 'sealed bearings.' They have inner and outer conical bearings that must be pressed out, packed with grease, and pressed in. There is also a seal for them. The Inner bearings are pressed into the knuckle, the outer bearings are pressed onto the hub. The hub is then pressed into the knuckle.

Remove the cap from the end of the hub. Inside, you'll find a large nut and a cotter key. straighten and remove the cotter key and remove the nut. The otter bearings will come out as you pull the rotor off. The inner bearings can also be removed once you pull out the seal. If you are having the rotors turned, you will need to drive out the race's. It is a good idea to go ahead and replace the bearings since your into it his far.

That depends on the vehicle; you listed in far too many categories to have this researched for you. For many vehicles, especially front wheel drive vehicles, the front wheel bearings are part of an assembly and you will need to replace the entire assembly AND have the vehicle aligned when you're done. That runs up the price. For some vehicles, such as a 2 wheel drive Silverado, the wheel bearing just slips out when you pull the front hub. You DO need to work a little to remove the inner "race", but that's not too much difficulty. The whole job shouldn't be more than $40 or $50 for a 2 wheel drive pickup, but front wheel drive vehicles and 4 wheel drive pickups can be several hundred dollars.

Remove the wheel, remove the axle shaft, remove the hub nut, pull off the hub.. the bearings will come off at this point. Drive out the races with a race driver and install new races. Clean off the axle spindle ad run over it with some emery cloth. Pack the bearings in grease, install the larger bearing in the inner hub and drive in the new wheel seal. Mount the hub, install the outer bearing, secure with the nut and washer. Tight is tight.

The front bearings are pressed into the hub. Take the axles out of the hub and remove the steering knuckle/hub assembly. Take them to a machine shop and have the bearings pressed out and back in again. The rear bearings you just take off the grease cap. Unstake the keeper washer and take the nut off. Then you can pull the outer bearings out. then replace the nut on the spindle and pull out again which will take the inner bearing out along with the seal.

on the inner side of the brake rotor, it's held in with a grease seal.

No, the unit was set up for ball bearings. Rollers will not work. Yes you can and I just did! The races in the hub must be replaced with ones that came with new roller bearing. Inner bearing races must be removed from spindle and not used. Got the roller bearings from PartsPlace for VW in Auburn Hills, Michigan

between the inner and outer pinion bearings.

User Avatar

there are a total of 4 wheel bearings on the front both sides have an inner and outer bearing. the outer bearing is visable when you remove hub the inner bearing is visable when you remove rotor

User Avatar

remove the bolts around the outside of the hub. pull it off. then remove the next set of bolts to remove the inner hub. there may be a snap ring to remove the inner hub as well.

User Avatar

there are 2 wheel bearings on all wheels there is an inner and outer bearing the inner bearing being bigger that the outer bearing

User Avatar

Yes, the rear bearings are replaceable.Bearings and the races are very easy to replace or repack, It may have a castle nut with a cotter pin or a crush nut if it has a crush nut you may want to order a new one before you take it apart.

User Avatar

you will have to remove the cir-clip to get full range of motion to roll the new bearings into place. if you haven't already, its usually a lot easier to remove the axle from the nuckle and disconnect the inner constant velocity joint by removing the torx bolts (i think about 6) around the joint so you can separate the whole drive shaft and bearings from the car.

the only thing i can think of would be a puller to remove the inner race from the stub axle, they tend to stick together alot!! AT

The bearings are inner and outer and are removed that way. The knuckle has a center ridge built in to keep the bearings from moving or touching the other after installation so the inner is removed toward the inside and the outer is removed toward the outside. In between the two bearings is a hub spacer which will be reused with the new bearings. Push the hub spacer to one side to see the inner part of each bearing and tap out of the knuckle with a drift or metal chisel being careful to only tap on the bearing you are removing. They will come out of the knuckle very easy with a few taps. To ease the reinstall of the new bearings place them in a freezer for a hour.

The procedure for replacing the bearings on a Chevy Venture is quite straightforward. Remove the inner drive seal protector first, then secure the rotor by placing a punch into the rotor vents and the brake caliper, and remove the hub nut and washer. After removing the brake caliper, a removal tool will be required to pull the hub free. Ample grease must be used on the hub, seals and the new bearings, and use 38 foot-pounds of torque to tighten the brake caliper, and 185 foot-pounds on the hub nut.

Cars have a total of four wheel bearings, one on each wheel. The wheel bearings are designed to help the wheels spin. Many cars have two wheel bearings per wheel, an inner and an outer located in each hub/bearing assembly.
