linda mccloskey: You u do this with the rear hub replacement?
elora2525: they make a special shank to used with air hammer may need a heavy duty air hammer. this tip may not work for RP..may crack pinion.
briansmobile1: You can communicate any way you see fit. As long as you don't drive an old and worn Ford Taurus, there is no automotive hell.
FecesWorld: Would it be an automotive sin to call it a wheel bearing hub? It seens to flow so much better.
briansmobile1: 5-7 threads and no. I didn't strip them.
briansmobile1: Thanks- I take that as a compliment!
DALE97DSM: Just wanted, to let you know. When ever someone in the mitsu car community has a preoblem removing hub/wheel bearing. I direct them to this video. Also, when I have a cold/flu. An need a quick pickup (Laugh) I would watch this. Thanks man.
jjams75: Yes, you are correct. I had already corrected myself and mentioned a slide hammer on my last comments.
gstree: I'm sorry a "puller" will not work in this case as there is nothing for the centre of the puller to "push" against and would only keep pushing the drive shaft further in possibly damaging the CV joint.
A decent "slide hammer" would work a treat on this particular job..
(from a mechanic with 50 years experience )
jjams75: Sorry for the disrespect. What you did actually seemed to work great. And I meant to say slide hammer not pulley puller.
jjams75: Sorry. You are correct. A slide hammer is what should be used.
Ken Love: How far did you put the bolts in and did you strip them?
Anne Knife: jjams75 (and Brian) - A wheel/gear puller does NOT work in this situation because there is nothing to pres the center of the puller against. You can't use the axle, and even if you could, you shouldn't, because it can damage the CV joints. You need a separator BEHIND the hub - something that can that can expand between the hub and the knuckle, or otherwise press the hub from behind, as Brian does with the bolts, sockets and extensions.
briansmobile1: I am. People do the best they can with what they have. Skills, tools, etc.
jjams75: Are you a mechanic? I also don't understand why everyone beats these with a hammer. Why do you not just use a gear/pulley puller? a cheap one cost like $10 and you do not risk any damage.
Belle Ellis: Hey a guy that works in grease all the time should get a pedi n a manicure ... lol! But I regret to say that your techique did not work ... we went thru 2 wheel pullers, a half can of PB blaster bruised knuckles n bent 3 extensions .. lol! Had to end up taking to a garage n it took them 4 hours to heat torch it off ... lol!
briansmobile1: I was at the day spa getting a pedicure. (roll eyes)
briansmobile1: Glad to hear. Let me know how you did.
Belle Ellis: hey i saw your video at 3am ive been worried all night wondering how were gonna gett that bearing off n im gonna try yoir trick in themorning! now i can sleep a little!
Bob Lawrence: where the h--- where u 2 days ago
john o: how do i tell if i have rack and pinion steering on 07 vue?
briansmobile1: You're welcome Mark- and thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you had success!
Mark Morreal: THANK YOU Sir ! Funny how something so simple ~ works so well. After beating with BFH for twenty- plus minutes, I realized brute force was only going to cause damage. This trickedworked on my 97 TJ, with the orignal hubs, in less than 30 seconds. - Brains of Brawn.
Dont sweat the hater comments on your lecture voice. It thought it was entertaining as it de-stressed me from the bearing battle I just left. Keep up good work.
jfohl3r: any tips on a split rear hub bearing assembly? I used a hub puller and split the assembly. the back of it with the bearing is rusted pretty good. soaked it with pb blaster and tried hammering the bolts back in for six hours. nothing. I think im going to just take a chainsaw and cut the car in half. 2005 subaru outback. thanks. .
ohlolololololollol: Got a stuck manual hub on a 96 bronco, fun times...
briansmobile1: Use a press if you have access. Otherwise you can put the bolts in the same way and a socket over them one at a time and hit them through with a hand sledge. Wear eye protection!
Mikesm226: Thanks Brian. Great trick! Do you have a method of removing the bearing hub if I have the whole assembly on the workbench?
xandervk: Just turn off the sound, peachcake.
mattwburnett: You sound like a retard. Thanks for going out of your way to make yourself sound like a ass.
dirtrider5001: Bigger hammer!
Jay Cates: Thank you for the tip. Gonna see if it works tonight, already tried the captain caveman technique.
TheNewutubesucks: another way to do it (assuming your hub is the threaded part like this video) is to shack the side of it so it turns and the bolt holes are off center, then put the bolts in backward. the more you tighten the bolts, the more it comes out.
PAK2605: Thank You !! I used this tip last night. I would still be working on it if I hadn't seen this. Awesome !!
NAHAAFB: Now I understand why the warning on the back of aerosol cans says to use in a well-ventilated area.
thegarageat88: I have a rack and pinion in my truck as well and couldn't do exactly this either. What I ended up doing (after struggling for almost 2 hours) was to thread a couple of the bolts back in partially. Then turn the wheel so I had room to swing the 2# sledge. That started it, turn the wheel the other way, hit the other side. I did this a few times and finally that B@#$ came out!
shawn kilmer: Is their an easy easy when dealing with a rack and pinion system?
ottsands: Great tip, I spent hours today hitting mine with a hammer, I now have hope for tomorrow.
Andrew Springer: Everything I read online was making me believe that I was going to have to put everything back together and take it to a shop with a press. After watching this video, I executed the removal flawlessly... but had to be real careful where I braced the socket extension. Thank you!
John Snow: That was awesome! I thought my weekend was ruined!
briansmobile1: You're welcome- I felt the same way about the guy who taught it to me. You can see Kevin in my Toyota axle rebuild video. It's fun to watch him work!
robertgoora: Your a genius i removed my hub with your trick itsaved my day thanks
briansmobile1: Be specific. You're comment reads... "Dan Smith He's a pickle." I doubt that's what you actually meant. Is it?
Dan Smith: He's a pickle
Jenna Jalving: by far the best thing ive ever seen wow but such a good idea thank you
freespeech469: Could have used that 3 months ago. Had it all torn apart except I could get it out because of the rust. Had to put it back together and pay a shop $200 to repeat with a press! Great videos!
briansmobile1: Welcome George! Good to hear from you.
David Jones: thanks for the video
