Did this video help you?

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

Mandel Twos: I like how you edit your videos. Good job. 

John Doe: Ed buy a impact air or electric.

Thakiid101: unless money was realllly tight i wouldnt even bother reusing the hub but thats just me

Brian Adams: Put the tires back under the car. 

Hai Le: You should replace it with OEM in the first place!!!!

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

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?

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.

Paul Morales: I wouldn't recommend hitting on the disk part of the rotor. I would only hot in the hub part

JESUS MURILLO: Nice tutorial, god bless you.

Sandy Ipock: Ed, what is the size/diameter of the Large Bearing Separator that you use to remove the Hub?

SouthernPrinceKenny: I just bought this adapter kit for my '93 325I but mine doesn't have 955-11. Mine is 955-13 thru 955-15 skips to 955-17 and up........ small ones 955-09... etc.... What will work with my Pittsburg 21 pcs. front wheel bearing addapter kit to do this job? My email adr is southerngentle_1 at yahoo dot come

gsantander100: Hello EdzGarage. Can an impact wrench be used on the bearing puller or would it cause damage?

kravmagadave: Great video man

Mathew Festoff: Question. I am doing this on a 2003 Mazda Protege5. Being that it has lug nuts instead of lug studs do you have a suggestion on what to use with the bearing seperator to split it apart? I want to keep the whole assembly on the car as you did since this process seems easier and didn't require air tools. 

Keith Vickers: Thank you SO MUCH for this video. I replaced a rear wheel bearing on my wife's 330i yesterday and those tools from Harbor Freight made the job easy-peasy!

Mirza Muhammad Umer Rafique: Hey bud, isnt this indentical to audi a4 20003 

Duncan Mac: You mentioned a cheap bearing from your last repair, perhaps you should consider that not using the proper tools had something to do with it's failure. Any thoughts?

arsenio ovs: hi there,, I have 1999 BMW 323I. do you know what kind of tools I should use to replace my front crankshaft seal? what kind of tool I should buy to remove my crankshaft hub ?

sledge beast: Rockauto.com has the rear hubs(VALUE PRO Part # SPK250 ) for cheap 14.05 ea. & $10 S/H for both. I ordered them at the same time I ordered the bearings (FLENNOR Part # FR591037 {#33411130617)which were $25.79 ea & $8.26 S/H for both. Obvcourse the S/H is to my ZIP code. in KY...Yours may be slightly dif. The listing for the FLENNOR Bearing mentions "Part is designed for EU Market vehicles" But I cross checked the Dimensions and BMW OEM # They are an exact match in every way With the other brands, at double the cost, isted for that same OEM#! . Plus FLENNOR Provides new Snap Ring & New Nut! Side Note: I had never heard of FLENNOR but this is my first BMW so take that with a grain of salt. I decided to look em up. This was posted on FCPEuro about that brand "Flennor was founded in 1935 by Walther Flender, the main headquarters was and remains Dusseldorf, Germany" also Someone in a forum mentioned "Any experience with Flennor? It seems to be a German product but for some reason it's cheaper than FAG with better warranty" At least its not Chinese :)

Larry Pengilly: If your axle moves in and out of the BMW hub that easily, then the axle or hub is also suspect. 

Thomas A. Anderson: What if your vehicle has pressed in wheel studs?

scott spencer: I took auto shop in high school in the early 70's before FWD cars. This is a totally different animal than what I was used too. I never had to do it before because the bearings never failed on any of my cars until now. I bought the harbor freight bearing adapter set and did it with no problems. I did have to cut the inner race off of the spindle with a dremel tool.The 150 pounds of torque on those spindle nuts was kind of strange though! Not used to that one.

ykmalachi: I have done close to 200 bearings and never done it this way. I always used the arbor press and a set of 3/4" drive large sockets.

Jose Francisco Medeiros: Great video, thank you for making it, I learned a few things. I have a 1998 BMW E39. On the E39 the rear bearing seems to be an assembly that bolts on RockAuto has a MOOG/NATIONAL Part # 512225 for about $60.00 each.

Dorian Cervantes: Thank you sir for being very good with details.

Timothy Brown: Is the bolt on that press kit??

Samantha Carapia: Hi Ed, Love your videos, was wondering if you had a video on how to take off the spindle so that i could take it to have my front hub bearing professionally pressed. I dont have a press kit, or a separator and it only cost 20 bucks to have them do it. Please help. thanks.

Timothy Brown: Wht size 

Brandon Hower: should use breaker bar :) nice video though!!

erik61801: man ill need a whole `nother tool box for the euro cars *smh*

Jimmy P.: Thanks.

Rob Christie: FINISHED! After battling the HF bearing removal tool off of the bolt the mechanic and I went at again but this time with air tools. Bearing popped right out. Reversed everything back in and all done.Silence in my car is golden. Thanks Ed for your patience and wisdom. Gonna do the other side friday. Should go smooth this time.

DW Red: i have a huge dent puller with a wheel hub attachment 3 pulls and its off..

EdzGarage: Yes they do. I like that they have almost any tool you need. Thanks for the comment!

EdzGarage: Thanks for watching!

EdzGarage: Be careful as you hit the shaft with the hammer so you don't mushroom or distort the shaft. It's a tough shaft, but I thought I should mention it.

tgkgate: well, if you're brave, and have access to fine needles, you can potentially re-grease a sealed bearing, but you'll need to use a tiny dab of epoxy on the hole to seal it on the grease seal. i've done it a couple times in a serious pinch (like truck needs back on the road rfn).

Pedro de la Cruz Jr.: Just curious, why are the wheel studs missing?

EdzGarage: Very cool! I also made my own tool to this job. If you look on my channel you can see it. The main parts are found in the plumbing department.

EdzGarage: Good to hear it went well. Thanks for the update!

EdzGarage: Michigan USA

John Clark: ED, are the rear bushes bearings etc on the E30 near identical to the E36/46? Just that HCB have a bushing removal/install kit for the E36/46 and I was wondering if it would also fit the E30? Thanks John

Andrew Lopez: Great video, thank you good sir!

EdzGarage: lol Thanks man. I do have air tools.

EdzGarage: Good job! There's more than one way to do this job.

ivanmazda100: Thanks for the video Ed. I bought the same tools and just finished my Audi tt today!! 2-28-13
