How to Install Bearings?

Answer

You will need floor jack, jack stand, wheel chock, ½ inch drive breaking bar, complete metric ½ inch drive socket set, 36mm spindle nut socket, ½ inch drive ratchet, large straight edged screwdriver, sandpaper, bungee cord, large rubber mallet, slide hammer, c-clamp,1/2 inch drive adjustable torque wrench. Park your car and put a wheel chock on the rear tire before loosening the lug nuts on the wheel. Use the jack to raise the wheel and support it on a jack stand. Remove the lug nuts and calliper bolts using a ratchet and socket. Detach the calliper gently using a straight edged screwdriver and use the coil spring with bungee cord to support the caliper.Use the ratchet and socket to remove the calliper bridge bolts and remove the brake pads. Detach the rotor and any ABS wires attached to the hub bearing assembly by unplugging and unclipping them from their mount. Detach the spindle nut using a spindle nut socket before removing the washer behind. Find the wheel bearing assembly bolts and loosen them using the breaking bar and socket. Use the slide hammer on the lug studs to secure the lug nuts and remove the corrosion using fine to medium grade sandpaper moving the drive shaft spindle out of your way. Put the backing plate in its original position before placing the new bearing on the knuckle and make sure the drive shaft spindle is in the centre of the hub bearing. Attach the wheel bearing assembly bolts threading them into the new bearings before tightening them. Place the washer and spindle nut before tightening them to the proper torque specifications using a ½ inch torque wrench and spindle socket. Put the brakes back the same way you removed them and reattach the ABS lines before replacing the tire and lug nuts. Lower the car after tightening the wheel nuts and pump the brake pedal to restore hydraulic pressure.
