Front axles replacement question
Posted 03 December 2003 - 12:59 PM
Question: is it a good idea to replace the weel bearings outer seal (the one on the trans side) when replacing the axles. And is it an easy job or something as difficult as replacing the bearings?
A guy I trust at the dealer has convinced me not to replace the bearing if they are not noisy. Should I replace the seal and is it an easy job?

You cannot replace the bearings all by yourself. You would have to remove the hub entirely from the car (off the strut, off the control arm, remove all brake components, etc.) and then take it to a machine shop to have the bearing pressed out of the hub...
