Rear Wheel Bearing R&R


Recommended Posts

I'm stuck and need a guidanceunsure.gif I'm replacing rear wheel bearing with Sir Tool bearing kit. Now wheel hub came off easy. But I'm trying to figure out if I can move the drive shaft out of the way to use the sir tool without disassembling the hub housing from the car. Does anyone know how this should be done correctly? Thank you very much in advance.

No. You need to pull the axle (doesn't always come out without difficulty, disconnecting the hub from the lower control arm helps) in order to use the tool. By that time, it is just as easy to pull the hub out and do it on the bench or in a press............. The tool works fine instead of a press, but you need to get at it from behind in order for it to work..............

Ok. I overcame fear of touching drive shaft. Disconnected at the flange, lifted the hub with second jack and played with the space allowed. It came off reasonably easy. I did find it useful to have 8 mm ball-tip hexa bit socket as the space was limited. I'll post the pictures later. Thanks!
