hiCustomer

here is how to do...

  1. Raise and support vehicle.
  2. Remove wheel cover, if equipped.
  3. Remove cap from hub/disc assembly.
  4. Remove cotter pin.
  5. Tighten nut (12), Fig. 5, to 12 ft lbs , while turning wheel forward by hand. This will seat the bearing.
  6. Loosen nut (12) to a just loose position, then back nut off until hole in the spindle aligns with a slot in the nut. Do not back the nut off more than 1/2 flat.

INSTALL

  1. New cotter pin. With wheel bearing properly adjusted, there will be .001---.005 inch endplay.
