James Crowton: Couldn't you have heated it up and just pounded it off?
Quadrigius: Best tip ever. Without your advice I would have scrapped my 1995Volvo 850
even though I had bought a replacement wheel bearing. I have never worked
on any car before but thought I would have a go at it because I had no
money for garage repairs (it would have cost more than the car is worth).
When I couldn't get the assembly out I thought, well that's the end of that
then, scrap yard for you; then I came across your video and decided to give
it one more try and WOW! It popped right out the very first time.
Brilliant. HUGE thanks. Happy Christmas and have a grrrreat 2014.
Chris Gloege: How the hell did you get the planes to land on the ceiling like that?
Eddie the Grouch: Bad acting aside, this tip IS priceless and I wish I had known it before
doing my bearing a few years ago. To others: that rust/corrosion ring will
resist big hammers, big torches, pullers, and strong language. DO NOT USE
a regular jaw puller as all it will do is drive the axle into differential.
BOB FOLTY: I think it would blow the seals in the power steering unit.
I have taken the off used a porter power against the spring and it was all
we could do to get it. when it poped it jumped out about a foot.
John Sliwinski: On my knees in the snow propane torch and BMF hammer beating till after
dark. went inside watched this video and tried next day. done in 5
minutes! this guy is FN Genius! thank you soo much!
T AGH: Just wanted to add another variation of this. I tried this with the socket
and extension and it busted the extension. Decided to use a heavy steel lug
nut breaker bar and braced it from the frame to the back of the hub plate
(where the lug bolts are) this time it worked great. Thanks for the great
idea ! I also like the outback delivery, well done,
goodcat1982: those bolts are threaded so it you force them out you will damage the inner
thread making harder or impossible to get a proper fit for the new bolts!
CrazedGunman32796: Hello Matt
d.notive: Oh my god this is absolutely ingenious. This saved me BIG TIME on my girl's
Grand Cherokee. Didn't even fire up the engine for the power steering boost
... just a bit of cranking on the wheel and the rusted wheel hub came off
with a satisfying crunch. God bless you.
linda mccloskey: You u do this with the rear hub replacement?
bimmerTEK: they make a special shank to used with air hammer may need a heavy duty air
hammer. this tip may not work for RP..may crack pinion.
briansmobile1: You can communicate any way you see fit. As long as you don't drive an old
and worn Ford Taurus, there is no automotive hell.
briansmobile1: 5-7 threads and no. I didn't strip them.
briansmobile1: Thanks- I take that as a compliment!
DALE97DSM: Just wanted, to let you know. When ever someone in the mitsu car community
has a preoblem removing hub/wheel bearing. I direct them to this video.
Also, when I have a cold/flu. An need a quick pickup (Laugh) I would watch
this. Thanks man.
gstree: I'm sorry a "puller" will not work in this case as there is nothing for the
centre of the puller to "push" against and would only keep pushing the
drive shaft further in possibly damaging the CV joint. A decent "slide
hammer" would work a treat on this particular job.. (from a mechanic with
50 years experience )
jjams75: Yes, you are correct. I had already corrected myself and mentioned a slide
hammer on my last comments.
jjams75: Sorry. You are correct. A slide hammer is what should be used.
jjams75: Sorry for the disrespect. What you did actually seemed to work great. And I
meant to say slide hammer not pulley puller.
Ken Love: How far did you put the bolts in and did you strip them?
Anne Knife: jjams75 (and Brian) - A wheel/gear puller does NOT work in this situation
because there is nothing to pres the center of the puller against. You
can't use the axle, and even if you could, you shouldn't, because it can
damage the CV joints. You need a separator BEHIND the hub - something that
can that can expand between the hub and the knuckle, or otherwise press the
hub from behind, as Brian does with the bolts, sockets and extensions.
briansmobile1: I am. People do the best they can with what they have. Skills, tools, etc.
jjams75: Are you a mechanic? I also don't understand why everyone beats these with a
hammer. Why do you not just use a gear/pulley puller? a cheap one cost like
$10 and you do not risk any damage.
Belle Ellis: Hey a guy that works in grease all the time should get a pedi n a manicure
... lol! But I regret to say that your techique did not work ... we went
thru 2 wheel pullers, a half can of PB blaster bruised knuckles n bent 3
extensions .. lol! Had to end up taking to a garage n it took them 4 hours
to heat torch it off ... lol!
briansmobile1: Glad to hear. Let me know how you did.
briansmobile1: I was at the day spa getting a pedicure. (roll eyes)
briansmobile1: You're welcome Mark- and thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you had
Mark Morreal: THANK YOU Sir ! Funny how something so simple ~ works so well. After
beating with BFH for twenty- plus minutes, I realized brute force was only
going to cause damage. This trickedworked on my 97 TJ, with the orignal
hubs, in less than 30 seconds. - Brains of Brawn. Dont sweat the hater
comments on your lecture voice. It thought it was entertaining as it
de-stressed me from the bearing battle I just left. Keep up good work.
jfohl3r: any tips on a split rear hub bearing assembly? I used a hub puller and
split the assembly. the back of it with the bearing is rusted pretty good.
soaked it with pb blaster and tried hammering the bolts back in for six
hours. nothing. I think im going to just take a chainsaw and cut the car in
half. 2005 subaru outback. thanks. .
Bob Lawrence: where the h--- where u 2 days ago
john o: how do i tell if i have rack and pinion steering on 07 vue?
Belle Ellis: hey i saw your video at 3am ive been worried all night wondering how were
gonna gett that bearing off n im gonna try yoir trick in themorning! now i
can sleep a little!
jack london: I would like to try it except the head of my hub bolts are rusted. I think
they were 13mm 12 point but there isn't much left. How do I get off rusted
godfather173: I like your videos but they make me dizzy with all that camera movement
please get a tripod
Paul Drayton: Oh yeah, there's a big warning to not do this on rack and pinion, doh! I
guess I'll use a small bottle jack or something..
Adam V: Brian i had to do those this summer in my 98 Dodge Dakota. I just used an
air hammer to do more or less the same thing. Although i am pretty sure i
cussed a lot more.
jjrock5: @briansmobile1 I don't know how you're not going off on that guy but I'll
say it since you don't like to cuss. Masster64 is a freaking pickle.
free speech: Could have used that 3 months ago. Had it all torn apart except I could get
it out because of the rust. Had to put it back together and pay a shop $200
to repeat with a press! Great videos!
Kelmo2828: can we get one for the rear hub pls!
xandervk: Just turn off the sound, peachcake.
briansmobile1: You have now stated that you don't like my personality or even my voice.
You basically don't like me- you only like the mechanical instruction. Is
this correct? -You're being offensive and bossy and now you expect me to
meet your demands. Is that right? Can you imagine what my response to this
would be in person? It is my finding that people who are disrespectful and
yet demanding of others find life to be very lonely, difficult, and
frustrating. How do you find it to be?
muddmonky: OMG i never thought of that. on my 98 cherokee sport i had to torch it till
the dam brake dust shield actually melted and driped out from behind it and
the entire hub war orrange then one big wack with a sledge and it poped off.
matt: You sound like a retard. Thanks for going out of your way to make yourself
sound like a ass.
NAHAAFB: Now I understand why the warning on the back of aerosol cans says to use in
a well-ventilated area.
Mary Chewie: Couldn't watch it. The voice is so annoying!
briansmobile1: Thanks Matt! What's funny is I speak higher than my natural voice so people
aren't afraid of me and I'm not too loud.- he speaks lower than his.
Growing up I was always getting shooshed for being too loud in just my
normal talking voice so I just tried speaking higher- it worked.
NETWizzJbirk: Already bought some now. Thanks
