Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
were you able to put the c clip back in and is the rotor your using the same one you pulled off?
are you reusing the hub too?
so the only factor I can think of is the bearing is backwards not allowing the lip on the hub to sink in all the way and seat on the bearing, if you have a air impact you can to to get it to seat more by using the c/v axle end assembly to compress it together
oh ok to far, So it could be a variance on the year and the part number, I would check your vin number with mazda and get the hub part number from them, and see if the local stores can cross reference the number to the ones that you bought, just to verify that your getting the right thing, if that dosent work, I have another solution but it will require doing yet another bearing and I know you dont want to do that
when you did the 2nd bearing did you mic out the old inner race to the new one and compare both parts?
that has to be it, or you will have to shim out the new one again the proper distance and see if they will warranty the old one, im not showing anything im my diagram of any spacers its just hub to bearing and c clip
on the first one one both sides they are in pieces? The answer would be in that,
I can only conduct business though here, you can access it in your e mail
