Rear Wheel Hub assembly

Rear wheel hub assembly

For those that want to replace their rear hubs /bearings.

I was able to change out the wheelhubs/bearings in less than 30 minutes.

Tips. These will save you hours of time and much frustration.

1. Drum/rotor will be stuck . GET Two screws that fit the threaded holes to pop off the drum.

2. Use two small screwdrivers (flathead) to pop off the abs sensor plug. One to press down the clip and one to lever off the plug.

3. Th is is the most important tip. It is more than likely that the wheel hub bearing assembly will be corroded to your backing plate. You can spend hours trying to take it off and end up destroying your backing plate. taking apart the emergency brakes, and make a huge mess because it will be corroded on and stuck so badly.

Here is the trick that I did. It took less than 5 minutes to take it apart. and put in the new hub bearing assembly.

Use a big hammer and knock off the hub with the backing plate. .the hub assembly will be frozen onto the backing plate more times than not..

then. from the backside (where the abs sensor is located) i soaked it with some pb blaster and used an old bearing race that i had kept from doing the front bearings. It fits perfectly over the back of the rear portion of the
hub assembly. It allows you to pound the hub assembly evenly to pop it off of the backing plate.. I used a small 5 pound sledge hammer and it just took a couple of good whacks and it popped right off.

If you don't have a bearing race then you need to find something similar. I large collar of some sort. something like a giant socket maybe. Or do your front bearings first and keep the outer race to do your rear bearings.
