REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 5
- Remove the front hub/rotor assembly from the steering knuckle as previously described.
- Remove the outer bearing from the hub. Remove the splash shield.
- Remove the nuts and bolts that attach the hub to the rotor and separate them. Clean out all of the old grease from the inside of the hub.
- The race for the outer bearing may be removed with a brass rod and mallet. Drive the race out from the inside but do not mar the inner surface of the hub.
- Use a seal puller on the back of the hub to remove the inner bearing seal.
- Once the outer bearing race is removed, flip the hub assembly over and tap the inner race out using the same procedure as with the outer race.
- Use bearing drivers of the proper size and drive the new races into the hub. Don't try to install the race with the brass rod; chances are high that the race will be crooked or damaged.
- Assemble the rotor and front hub. Tighten the nuts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
- Apply wheel bearing grease to the inside of the front hub.
- Pack the inner bearing and install to the hub.
- Install a new oil seal into the hub so it is flush with the hub end face.
- Install the assembly onto the steering knuckle.
- Pack and install the outer bearing.
- Continue with reinstallation of the hub as outlined previously.
