How to Replace a Front Wheel Bearing

Опубликовано: 28 мая 2015 г. 5 185 482 просмотра

Wheel Bearing Replacement. Learn how to replace a wheel bearing hub assembly. This is a 2007 Mercury Mountaineer, Ford Explorer but the process will be very similar for replacing any wheel bearing hub assembly with an axle running through it. I was quoted over $650 at the stealership to do the job again so save a ton of money and do it yourself and do it properly so it won’t fail again.

Here is the wheel bearing hub assembly I used: http://www.mevotech.com/product/hub-a...

  • WhiteRaiden2014
    WhiteRaiden2014 2 года назад Before this I've never replaced a wheel bearing in my life. I followed these steps to the letter (For the most part. Mine was a front bearing on a RWD truck) and it was one of the easiest jobs I've ever done. Thank you ChrisFix. You saved me, my job, and my credibility once again.

    Subwoofer 2 года назад (изменено) You are the only person on YouTube I know that I feel safe taking car advice from. I'm becoming more and more of a DIY kind of guy, so you do and amazing job with not only explanation, but damn good camera work to show exactly what's going on; kudos to those cams you put so we could see behind the car knuckles. I should also point out what a lot of other guys don't do that you do. You are pretty good with explaining what tools you use and where you get them. Lot of others never do or they use company based products that are supplied by where they work and they just overlook that.
