JOE Hyundai Tech says:

anti-seize spray just makes a big mess and it gets all over the wheel studs as well. use fluid film instead witch is made for this. but that's just me I have the same veh only its the wagon with the 2.3 also ford says whenever reusing the same hardware use a little blue lock tight on the threads but that's how we do it at the dealer

Charles Bryan says:

He put the break in "beating the brakes off" this car

Jake says:

Bonks…. Hahaha I love it

Fabien says:

20 ton press?

Buff Barnaby says:

Wow cars there look like they were ocean-driven.

Buff Barnaby says:

I used an inexpensive one-man bleeder on my 1998 Jeep years ago , worked great. Just a hose with a one-way check ball on one end that you keep in a container filled with brake fluid. When you pump the pedal it prevents air/fluid from going back into caliper.

Radek W says:

There is also an abs sensor you have to remove, it sits right at the bearing

Dave 24v says:

Wheel bearings (front) on a Focus 2014 have been a complete nightmare
for me. I ham pressing the old ones out just like this video of yours,
then pressing the new ones in (even froze them for a better fit when
pressing) … Everything looks and feels fine but the moment I install
this back on the car, I get the famous wheel wobble again .. It's beyond
me what I am doing wrong as I am doing everything by the book! …

Gregory Kitchens says:

You Def want to out this exle nut all the way on flush with the end of the axle before hitting it. The axle nut has a metal casing around it that holds the washer on and it can get deformed and you can't get the socket back on the nut, or the washer can come lose from the back of the nut.

Jesse Chavez says:

Great instructional video. How far do you press the hub into the bearing? From what I understand when you press the hub too far into the bearing the caliper bracket will bind to the rotor.

Dinie09 says:

I've completed one of these before, our 10ton jack wasn't enough with all the rust, had to take it into a local shop with their 40ton. Took about 15tons to get the bearing out.

Bubba Farckel says:

great vid thanks

BenG says:

This guy is bonking the steering knuckle with a sledge. Using a soft socket to press the bearing, heating the bearing which will make his job harder, HEATING THE KNUCKLE is also incorrect. take his ASE away; Im doubtful he has it Hes gonna get someone killed eventually.
Don't do this. Let the penetrant work. Be patient.

Petar Malesev says:

Thank you! Very educative!

Soma P says:

The main thing you forgot to mention was axel nut foot pounds specs.

Steve Mey says:

233 ft. Lbs for the axle nut "Chilton's manual"

Steve Mey says:

So, are you putting bad info out there so people mess stuff up, or do you just have bad sources for torque specs?
