With Rear Drum Brakes
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2.  
  3. Remove the rear wheels.
  4.  
  5. Loosen the spindle nut.
  6.  
  7. Torque the nut to 108-145 ft. lbs. (150-200 Nm). Check for correct bearing end-play by placing a dial indicator on the hub surface and moving the hub outward. Note the movement of the gauge and compare it to the desired reading of 0.008 in. (0.2mm) or less. If end-play exceeds the desired reading, retighten the rear hub bearing nut and recheck the end-play. If the reading is still excessive, replace the hub unit.
  8.  
  9. If end-play is correct, check the starting torque by attaching a spring balance to the hub lug bolts and pulling at a 90 degree angle while noting the required force to turn the hub. If the force required is above the desired reading of 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) or less, loosen the nut and again tighten to the desired torque. Recheck the starting torque. If the torque is still above the desired reading, replace the rear bearings.
  10.  
  11. Install the rear wheels.

Removal & Installation



  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2.  
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Rear wheel
     
    Flange nut and washer
     
    Drum or rotor
     
    Brake line
     
    Parking brake assembly
     
    Parking brake cable
     
    Spindle bolts and the spindle
     
    Rear hub from the housing using tool 09517-43001
     
    Wheel bearing snap-ring
     
    Wheel bearing inner race from the housing using tools 09500-2100, 09527-33000 and 09216-22100
     

  4.  
  5. Inspect the components for damage and replace as necessary.
  6.  

To install:

  1. Apply a thin coat of multi-purpose grease to the surface on the housing and bearing.
    NOTE
    Do not press against the outer race of the bearing as this can cause bearing damage and always use a new bearing kit.

  2.  
  3. Install or connect the following:

    Bearing onto the spindle using tools 09216-21100 and 09532-3200
     
    Snap-ring
     
    Backing plate, then press the hub onto the housing using tool 09517-21500
     

  4.  
  5. Rotate the bearing several times to seat the bearing.
  6.  
  7. Measure the wheel bearing torque using an inch lb. torque wrench. The measurement is 16.64 inch lbs. (1.88 Nm) on 2001-03 models, or 0.73 inch (0.99 Nm) on 2004 models.
  8.  
  9. Measure the end-play of the hub using a dial gauge. The specification is 0.003-0.008mm.
  10.  
  11. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of removal.
  12.  
  13. Check the wheel alignment and adjust as necessary.
