Helpful ways of changing wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

Is there a easy way to get the wheel bearing assy off. Like a puller or something?

Use a BIG 3 jaw puller and then whacked it with a BFH. They were stuck on very tight. I don't know a better way than that. Hopefully with replacing the joints with greasable ones they won't need replaced for a long time. Or... Loosen the 4 bolts the thread a couple in part way and put and socket and extention on them and turn the wheel left or right and jam the extention into the axle and it should push them out......do each side a bit at a time and be sure to anti sieze the hub when replacing

The rude and crude way to do it on the side of the road is to use a cold chisel to part the bearing from the holder after pulling the 4 bolts.At the shop a couple of 5 # slide hammers with welded adapters to thread onto 2 opposite holes on the bearing from the outside after the bolts are out of the threads.If you use the chisel take a file and remove the burr that raises on the mounting surface and the brake shield.keydl
