How to use a front wheel drive bearing press kit

Good content. I would recommend you using a puller instead of destroying your impact socket with a hammer. When using a bearing press, I'd recommend to put some lube on the both sides of the washer and the threads of the press rod. Just a thought. Keep up the great work!

Make a groove in the bearing race half way thru then hit it with a cold chisel . Race will split and you can remove it with your fingers

Really nicely done! Great pointers here. I never thought of using the air hammer I have to remove the stuck bearing race...that was slick.. Also nice use of the bench vice. You are a great teacher also. Thanks so much for your help.

No need to remove knuckle from car. Use a slide hammer to remove hub, then use the bearing tool to remove bearing/race & then snap ring. Clean inner knuckle, then install new bearing, snap ring, hub using the bearing press tool. Just did 2 of them today.

This is probably the best video showing how to press the bearing out. Thanks for your help, friend

Great job, I just purchased this kit and wanted to know if you turn the nit at the back or the bolt at the front. I was always thinking the nut at the back anyway. You are meant to grease your threads 100%. I'm going to do it with the hub on the car 1 less job.

Thanks Richard for the video . I have seen a lot of bearing press kits at all price range and the only complaint is the Bolt and the nut that comes with the kits. well there is a way to fix it go and find you a grad 8 bolt that is the same size that is in your kit then you can find a long grad 8 nut you can look for a store that sells specialty nuts an bolts or 4 realer grad 8 nuts and weld them together if you or some one you know that don`t have a welder you can go to a welding shop they can do it for you. I hope this help you .

A bearing splitter will help you take the race off the hub. No cutting or banging involved. Use the bearing driver plate to cover the hole so you can use the splitter screw to pull it off. This whole project can be done in the car but is much easier to see as you have it here. Nicely done.

Tip: (I'm dealing with New England's salty roads and lots of rust.) While using this ADT bearing press kit (with the knuckle removed from the car)... if that old bearing in the knuckle refuses to budge, in spite of your best effort with a breaker bar and cheater pipe for max leverage (don't break your tools!) -- then, here's what I did that worked. Punch out both sets of ball bearings and their cages (and any seals) from the old bearing assy, which will leave only the outer race/holder remaining "frozen" in the knuckle. She's on there, momma, I mean tool-breaking stuck, right? You can pay your local garage to use their 20-ton press when they have time, or, you can heat that race for 5-minutes with a mapp torch from the hardware store (and I do mean all of 5-minutes). I don't recommend propane as it may not be hot enough. (You would think the heat would expand the race and get tighter in the knuckle bore, but that's not what I found.) Then, wearing thick gloves so you don't burn your pinkies and of course your safety glasses, immediately set-up your ADT kit against the knuckle and race as Richard demonstrates. Now go for it. When you hear VERY LOUD popping as you turn the greased threads, you'll know that mutha is on the move. This method worked for me on both front wheels on a 2002 Camry. It did not damage the knuckle bore. Lots'a heat, but be safe.

Could you use an impact wrench to help removal of the bearing🤔
