Shawn Bybee: my bolts are an e12 for the differential bolts. I took the advice of the e14 and stripped the head of a bolt, but it took the rest off. It's e12, you just have to work the rust off the bolt.
Guess I should note that my car is an 02 325i.
twotwocold: FYI you didn't need a bearing puller if you wasn't reusing the bearing a dent puller with the 3 claw head would work jus fine that would save $100 Bucks off the tool bill nice video...
Noah Rule: your brake caliper is gonna snap!!!!
krisztiantth: wow best video ever..very good
Ravi Sundaram: Wouldn't recommend to use a bearing separator to remove the hub ! it doesn't work and also it will ruin your lug nuts ! ruins the threads! use a slide hammer to remove the hub !
arrache roulement Lynda: belle vidéo
Dou Xiong: can you use a slide hammer on the rear to get the bearing out?
Dou Xiong: what brand was the first bearing you used?
Jeremy Chavez: do you pull the bearing separator all the way to the hub? and does it have to be super tight?
Jeremy Chavez: how does the axle come out from behind the hub? does it just disconnect?
spudth: Just went to my local harbor freight. $160 for the two tools to do this. I think I'll find something in the garage or borrow tools. Guess I'm too cheap!
kayvan komarizadeh: I remember replacing my wheel bearing on my e46 xi, didn't even have to replace it the strange noise was coming from my trans axle, or differential. It was low on fluid hence the AWD model. What a nightmare. I used the Harbor freight tool to pull out the bearing, broke the bolt from the tool set. Got it re welded, and bought a similar bolt from The home depot. I put the large nut on the inside instead of how you demonstrated the outside. I eventually managed to remove it, and I had a machine shop press on the new bearing to my wheel hub. Best 20 dollars I ever spent. Man what an ordeal. Goes to show make sure you know the issue before replacing. I do have a question, how often do you replace your rotors.
Mr R: Crack the 30mm hub nut while the wheel is still on the car and the car is on the ground
( jack car up , remove wheel, pop out centre cap, put wheel back on )
procletnic: Superb DIY video, I'd say the best one in youtube on the subject. Thanks!
shoman24v: I'm trying to get my axle out right now and it seems frozen to the hub. Any recommendations to getting it out? currently, I'm spraying it with WD to try to break. I've tapped it numerous times... I have a 1999 E36 that I bought in 2004 with 50k, now has 207k. Thanks.
Stonnie Dennis: Thanks!
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!
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.
