quincylevern: If you use the slide hammer instead of the large bearing separator you won't have to take off the e brake. The hardest part is removing the axle everything else is cake! Oh if your hub wont fit back on, make sure the e brake is down. Took ten minutes fo I figured it out. lol!
quincylevern: Everybody is different. Great job first off! Just wanna add my 2 cents. The large bearing separator is crappy!!! I used the slide hammer (my hub was practically welding stuck) and three good wacks and wah la!! Felt like I wasted money on the large bearing separator which bent on me! Probably would have worked but I ran out patience and forgot to stop and buy some. lol
shyboy2cute: what bearing did you buy the first time? I would like to avoid that name brand.
tank: You pay people to do that so don't get dirty and time, if you money maybe 500.00 to 600.00 for the fronts.
Jeff Heckman: AWE THAT GREAT COOL SAVE PRESS EASIER I PAYED 20.00 HAVE PRESS /MACHINEST REMOVE GRET KNOW THAT GUY GOOD ADVICE
Mandel Twos: I like how you edit your videos. Good job.
rednightist: Take heed that you do not lean the wheel bearing removal tool on the shoe brake "rest" (6:30) as you reposition the tool. That "rest" will snap off if you lean the tool on it by mistake; and it is part of the rear trailing arm. (Very expensive component.) If you brake that "rest", all is not lost. You can buy an attachable "rest" from FCP Europarts. You will have to thin and shave the new "rest" with a dremel tool, however to fit in the space to accommodate the brake shoes when you re-install the shoes.
Brian Adams: Put the tires back under the car.
John Doe: Ed buy a impact air or electric.
brett tyson: Thanks so much for the video. The mechanic wanted to charge me $500 for both front wheel bearings... I can get the both wheel bearings for $60.... Do these methods for 98 Honda Accord? Thanks alot
Thakiid101: unless money was realllly tight i wouldnt even bother reusing the hub but thats just me
Hai Le: You should replace it with OEM in the first place!!!!
dnl machine: Buy your bearings from bearing supply shops. Local machinists will know what the names are, and the bearing shop can take your old bearing and give you a wayyyyy better quality one tailor-made for the application at 1/4 the price of any other place except maybe a machine shop. But my machine shop....we dont sell our supplies and parts. We use the following bearing products: SKS, FAG, Timken. Stay gold.
David Henry: Will my 170nm torque wrench be powerful enough to use with the threaded rod wheel bearing instalation kit for pressing in the new bearing?
JESUS MURILLO: Nice tutorial, god bless you.
Patrick Czapkowski: Where can I purchase the large bearing seperator? I purchased the whole kit but it only came with a 2" and 3" which are too small for my rear wheel bearings and dont fit around it. Every place I call all say that they dont have any bigger sizes. Any help? Thanks! Great video
Sandy Ipock: Ed, what is the size/diameter of the Large Bearing Separator that you use to remove the Hub?
