If you are willing to do it Charles Bronson style , all you need is a hammer and skinny flat blade chisel. Most bearings can be tapped out from the opposite side. Put the chisel through the center of the bearing hole, push the bearing spacer off to the side, hook the chisel onto the inner race of the bearing and tap it out the opposite side of the wheel. When the bearing and spacer fall out, flip the wheel over and tap the other bearing out the other side. Now , place the new bearing in the opening and place the old bearing against it lining up the raises. Only tap on the old bearing (the outer race) when pushing in the new bearing. Tap in the new bearing until the old bearing starts to enter the wheel hub. Now you have to carefully seat the bearing by using the chisel only on the outside race, moving the chisel around the circumference of the outer race to evenly push the bearing down. Be very careful not to slip and punch the seal or damage the actual ball bearings. Flip the wheel over , put the spacer back in, and repeat the procedure till the other bearing is seated enough that the spacer can be moved but does not bind the inner races of the bearings. Work carefully and you will have a permanent repair using only a hammer and a chisel.

2007 ford sport trac rear wheel bearing replacement


Jeff is describing how to replace the front wheel bearings. In the front, the bearing is part of a "hub cartridge". Randy is describing how to change the rear bearings on a truck with a "dead" rear axle. The sort of differential which is one massive cast iron assembly from rim to rim. However, your truck has an IRS [Independent Rear Suspension] design. You need to remove the wheels, brakes & the complete rear knuckle assembly. To remove the bearing from the knuckle requires a hydraulic press and a "knife edge" bearing removal tool. I doubt that you have these tools available. If not, find an auto parts store or auto machine shop with these tools. They can press the old bearing out and install the new one for you. Then you can reassemble the knuckle assembly from that point on. The video linked below should help you.

With the knuckle off, you can easily replace the ball joints at the same time. Odds are you will ruin the original ball joints getting the knuckle assembly off, anyway.

Fit replacement bushes to rear hub on CB200


Bushings on the rear hub of a CB200 motorcycle? If so you will most likely need to place motorcycle on centerstand and remove the rear axle and brake connecting assemblies. I don't recall them having bushings, but rather bearings (inside hub) and wheel spacers on outside of hub on one side and outside brake assembly on opposite side. If the bearings are worn out, retrieve replacements and also a blind bearing puller set to remove the bearings. Before removal of the old bearings, toss the new ones in the freezer as this will cause the metal to shrink (although slight) this will make installations of new ones easier. A shop press can be a handy tool for inserting new ones, but can also be done in a vice after carefully starting them with a rubber mallet. Careful not to damage the seals as these are fragile and new bearings won't last long if these get damaged. If it is the spacers, best best is to replace them with original replacements from the manufacturer.

Passenger rear wheel bearng needs to be replaced.does this require special tools? I've just had a complete brake job ,new pads new rotors new drums and I have a recurring grinding noise coming from the...


You can do this job your self with common tools. Auto zone carries the wheel bearing you need and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the bearing. Here is a tip, to try to break the old wheel bearing from the axle. Just loosen the 4 bolts 3 mm that hold the bearing to the axle and put the wheel back on and drive the car back and forth a few times, hard on the brakes to break it free from the axle. Once the bearing breaks free from the axle, it should take you under 45 min to get the job done. Good luck and be safe.
