It's not easy, I highly recommend you go to a shop. The bearing has to be pressed out and new one pressed in. I would rate it a 8 for difficulty. I've done this once, took me a few hours without a press, but I had a huge vice and a diesel shop to do it in.

Yeah pressed in bearings require a shop to at least press them in or put the bearing in the freezer over night to shrink it a bit if your handy with a wrench.

^^ Yah, you could possibly find a shop to press out the old and in the new one, but you would have to remove the knuckle, hub, or whatever you want to call it first. So would need another car. I think a shop quoted me $130, but I can't remember if that included the part. The front bearing on my 03 was $58 at the dealer.

Fyi, for any one else looking do their front wheel bearings on their own, most machine shops will do the press work required.

okay, so we removed the wheel hub (with the 5 studs), once it was removed the bearing balls fell out because the bearing was shot. We bought a new bearing from Napa but it seems to big. Its a 2006 tib with abs brakes. Do we have to take off the metal peace behind the wheel hub thats connected to the suspension and abs or is the bearing just too big? Thanks.

okay, i will put a pic up tomorrow in the daylight in the afternoon. Its like the part that seems to have the abs wire connected into it. It looks like a dust cover but it came after the wheel hub so it wouldn't make sense. Its also connected to the suspension.

Is there any special bolt or way to remove the knuckle from the lower ball joint? Because we have gotten every thing off except for that. Thanks

414Tibby,

Hey I had the same problem with the bearings falling out, what I can tell is that it was a set of outer bearings which I am told does not come stock on my car, what did you end up figuring out about that?
