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.
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
