Hi my name is Nate McCullough on behalf of
Expert Village. In these clips we’re going to talk about the proper way to repack, grease,
and adjust your vehicle’s wheel bearings. In this clip we’re going to talk about the
proper way to remove the vehicle’s wheel bearings. Depending on the make and model you may have
a hub assembly. On this one we have what they call tapered roller bearings. To get the outward
bearing out, no problem at all. Take and place your hand about so and pop the rotor. You
can see the bearing has slipped out. Take and remove it just like so. The inboard bearing
is a different story. There’s a dozen different tricks for removal of the inboard bearing.
What I have found that works the best is to reinstall the nut. I know it doesn’t make
sense, but right now I’ll show you. To reinstall the nut you have to put on a couple threads.
Your going to slide the rotor off its seat and your going to use a sliding motion. What
I’ve done is reinstalled the nut back onto the spindle. What I’m going to do is use the
sliding motion with the rotor. I’m going to use both hands and pop it this way. What that’ll
do it strike the outboard edge of the inboard bearing and actually pop it out and remove
the grease seal. Slide it off it’s seat and give it a whack. The bearing seats inside
here, this is called the inner race and the seal hammers down right on top of it. That’s
what keeps it in. Take and remove that guy right there. Set it on top of our other bearing.
Spin our nut off. That?s the proper way to remove our vehicle’s wheel bearings.
