How To Remove A Rusted Wheel Hub Bearing Assembly The Easy Way.




What do you think about this video?

toby hummel: thanks m8 my knuckes are tore up from the caveman approach having a hard time typing gonna give this one whirle and hope I get to drive the spyder to work thanks again

Jay Orenstein: What if its so rusted it bends the bolts

jarin wilson: Brian, I've had wheel hub bearing assemblies so seized into the steering knuckle, a 40 ton press would not press it out... it began to distort the entire steering knuckle. I was left with no other option but to cut them out. I've never used this option that you clearly demonstrated(not because it won't work, but when I've invested a large sum of cash on tools, I just won't risk destroying an extension, unless its an 'el cheapo')

Ali Aliali: soak for a hour..with coca-cola it do the job 

Bad Dog: I've tried about everything but this yet. Thanks for talking slow that's about my speed of course the audience is for motorheads lol.

Eddie the Grouch: Bad acting aside, this tip IS priceless and I wish I had known it before doing my bearing a few years ago. To others: that rust/corrosion ring will resist big hammers, big torches, pullers, and strong language. DO NOT USE a regular jaw puller as all it will do is drive the axle into differential.

MrZanadoo: Hi, I have enjoyed a few of your video's, do you have one on replacing the rear wheel bearing assembly on a 2004 subaru Impreza TS, i watched the one on the outback, thanks in advance and keep the video camera rolling

TheIrongutz: Just use a puller, safer!

Leslie Woods: Many years ago I had a car that belong to some one else and the right front bearing was locked on so tight that cut it off, with out heating the sub axel it moved and fitted new bearings and the was able to sell the car and get a new one

James Crowton: I would use Silikroil and let it soak for a hour.. The stuff Eats rust like candy within a hour! Best stuff ever!! No hammer or press needed

Chris Gloege: How the hell did you get the planes to land on the ceiling like that? Incredible!

kikyle: You rock man!! That was so easy u saved me so much BS. Im glad I found your video. 

Jose Rozo: thanks 

loveskateboard4: holy crap you are a genius my dad and I were beating, prying, and cussing for hours trying to get it out then tried this and it took a 1/2 hour thank you so much two extensions were lost in the process but was well worth

Danny Smith: How would I do this on a 99 blaze? Just yesterday, I attemted replacing my ball joints.. I spent 4 hrs trying to get the hub and splash off.... Nothing worked!!! Please help a.s.a.p

Chris Henson: crap that one isnt even rusty you should of seen the ones i just did we had a 8 pound sledge and a cutting torch still took 7 hours

Darian Benford: Thanks. It works. 

Ian Sutherland: You saved my ass bro what a genius idea worked like a charm!!!

Willie Manley: Thanks for the awesome tip...I still can't believe how well that worked...and it was fast! I've been beating, heating, slide hammering and nothing worked...great tip!

Nigel McKenzie: Awesome!

akorczvr6: freaking brilliant

BOB FOLTY: I think it would blow the seals in the power steering unit. I have taken the off used a porter power against the spring and it was all we could do to get it. when it poped it jumped out about a foot. 

Quadrigius: Best tip ever. Without your advice I would have scrapped my 1995Volvo 850 even though I had bought a replacement wheel bearing. I have never worked on any car before but thought I would have a go at it because I had no money for garage repairs (it would have cost more than the car is worth). When I couldn't get the assembly out I thought, well that's the end of that then, scrap yard for you; then I came across your video and decided to give it one more try and WOW! It popped right out the very first time. Brilliant. HUGE thanks. Happy Christmas and have a grrrreat 2014.

Jay Orenstein: I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 4x4 and my passenger front wheel hub is stuck on, I tried heating it with acetaline torches and a 5 lb sledge and it didn't budge it is basically welded together because the bearing is so bad, I don't thing your trick will work, any other ideas or do I need to replace what it connects to, and what is the part it connects to? Is it the. Control arm? Please if you can email me +Jay Orenstein thank you very much

James Crowton: Couldn't you have heated it up and just pounded it off?

James Crowton: Brian, if my steering knuckle is not available to use as a press. Can I just use mapp gas and heat it up and pound it out?

john olinsky: I have been working on my hub bearing I like you tip I have to see if it works 

John Sliwinski: On my knees in the snow propane torch and BMF hammer beating till after dark. went inside watched this video and tried next day. done in 5 minutes! this guy is FN Genius! thank you soo much!

T AGH: Just wanted to add another variation of this. I tried this with the socket and extension and it busted the extension. Decided to use a heavy steel lug nut breaker bar and braced it from the frame to the back of the hub plate (where the lug bolts are) this time it worked great. Thanks for the great idea ! I also like the outback delivery, well done, 

bigdaddy377able: My wheel came off while i was driving and i find out that my rotor is cricked also when i rotate the rotor something scrapes , and i cant put a wheel on it because the lugs dont want to go in when you try to tighten them, do you know what coudlve mest up?

goodcat1982: those bolts are threaded so it you force them out you will damage the inner thread making harder or impossible to get a proper fit for the new bolts! Rubbish idea!

jack london: I would like to try it except the head of my hub bolts are rusted. I think they were 13mm 12 point but there isn't much left. How do I get off rusted hub bolts?

godfather173: I like your videos but they make me dizzy with all that camera movement please get a tripod

PDES Camden: Oh yeah, there's a big warning to not do this on rack and pinion, doh! I guess I'll use a small bottle jack or something..

Adam V: Brian i had to do those this summer in my 98 Dodge Dakota. I just used an air hammer to do more or less the same thing. Although i am pretty sure i cussed a lot more.

jjrock5: @briansmobile1 I don't know how you're not going off on that guy but I'll say it since you don't like to cuss. Masster64 is a freaking pickle.

free speech: 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!

Kelmo2828: can we get one for the rear hub pls!

xandervk: Just turn off the sound, peachcake.

briansmobile1: You have now stated that you don't like my personality or even my voice. You basically don't like me- you only like the mechanical instruction. Is this correct? -You're being offensive and bossy and now you expect me to meet your demands. Is that right? Can you imagine what my response to this would be in person? It is my finding that people who are disrespectful and yet demanding of others find life to be very lonely, difficult, and frustrating. How do you find it to be?

Cr4z3d: Hello Matt

muddmonky: OMG i never thought of that. on my 98 cherokee sport i had to torch it till the dam brake dust shield actually melted and driped out from behind it and the entire hub war orrange then one big wack with a sledge and it poped off.

matt: You sound like a retard. Thanks for going out of your way to make yourself sound like a ass.

NAHAAFB: Now I understand why the warning on the back of aerosol cans says to use in a well-ventilated area.

Mary Chewie: Couldn't watch it. The voice is so annoying!

briansmobile1: Thanks Matt! What's funny is I speak higher than my natural voice so people aren't afraid of me and I'm not too loud.- he speaks lower than his. Growing up I was always getting shooshed for being too loud in just my normal talking voice so I just tried speaking higher- it worked.

briansmobile1: You're welcome Mark- and thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you had success!

NETWizzJbirk: Already bought some now. Thanks

pappysully: I ended up removing the entire steering knuckle so I could work on it. Supporting the knuckle on a couple of blocks of wood, I put the hub bolts about 3/4 in, then I went around to each bolt with a heavy hammer until the hub was free. It was not much extra work, and it saved me some aggravation in the long run. Use a socket to protect the heads, or file the flats after beating on the bolts.

briansmobile1: I tried that and got to the channel, but only vids of Search and Restore. I got "No Results Found" when I searched videos on the channel on "Unit Bearing" and "Bearing". Are you talking about old school hubs for economy, strength, and lower cost future maintenance?
