About to change rear wheel bearings

<t></t>  

  1. 1. <t></t>



Recommended Posts

Got a slight noise from the back end at low speeds, sounded at 1st like a rusty disk or pad dragging but swapped the disks and pads and it's still there. Ordered up a couple of new rear wheel bearings, and looking at the manual it looks straight forward enough (doesn't it always). Any hints or tips I should know about or is it really just remove the ABS sensor and 4 bolts and off I go. Thankfully already had the disc and caliper off so everything is nice, clean and easy to remove upto that point.

Why don't they put the bloomin bolts in from the other side, so you can see what your doing and get to them easier Grrrrr!!!!! Instead they fit them from the inside so you have to work around all the suspension components and through little access holes. New it was too easy when the haynes said remove the four retaining bolts. Oh well rant over, back to work

At least one side done so I know I'm using the right size tools. The new bearing came with 16mm bolts where as the old one was a loose 13mm which fooled me for a while. Secret seems to be a good dose of penetrating oil first then a good size bar on the end of the socket to get it started. Was petrified I'd round a bolt though as they'd be pigs to drill out.
