Vehicles equipped with ABS
CAUTION: Do not remove the ABS sensor from the bearing.
NOTE: The wheel hub and bearing is a slip fit design and should not require a puller to remove it.
Vehicles with ABS
NOTE: Position the hub in a soft-jawed vise.
NOTE: Any time the wheel hub is removed for any reason, a new O-ring seal must be installed. Failure to do so can cause a vacuum leak and loss of four wheel drive operations.
NOTE: Apply a coat of Ford High Temperature 4x4 Front Axle and Wheel Bearing Grease E8TZ-19590-A meeting Ford specification ESA-M1C198-A to the O-ring area of the wheel hub and bearing before installing the hub and bearing.
Vehicle equipped with ABS
NOTE: The following step applies only to vehicles equipped with ABS.
CAUTION: The non-metallic thrust washer must be installed between the two metal thrust washers. Failure to do so will cause severe wear to the non-metallic thrust washer, allowing the axle shaft to travel further in and out during torque thrust causing damage to the wheel hub and bearing, the axle shaft end seal and the axle shaft.
NOTE: Any time the hub lock is removed, a new O-ring seal must be installed. Failure to do so can cause a vacuum leak and loss of four wheel drive functions.
NOTE: Do not loosen the castellated nut to install the cotter pin.
NOTE: Always remove the lower ball joint first.
