Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
how far are you along, you say to the bearings? you have removed the dust cap, and the retaining clip on the flange with all the nuts on it , and removed that flange?
Just trying to get a feel for how far along you are.. let me know
yes, and I have removed the nut that holds the bearing
ok, im getting with you now.. are you replacing the rotors and or the bearings?
to remove the rotor from the hup you remove about 6 bolts from the side that the wheel
bolts up to, rotors are usually stuck and require some wd 40 and a hammer to seperate from the hub..
please reply back if this is not what you are talking about.. glad to help
Yes I have the rotor detached from the hub, but the hub with the lugs is still on the car and I can't get that part off to remove the rotor. I have the cap with the six small nuts off. But I can not get the rear part of the hub off the vehicle
you are there then.. thats all that hold the hub on.
The bearings may be stuck to the axle.. you should be able to pull the hub off at this point
best bet would be to get a hammer and start tapping the hub from behind, put a few bolts in the rotor to hold it in place. start taping in different positions like 12 oclock then 6 3 and 9 and so on.... keep the pressure even
do the bearings feel rough when turning the hub or are they blue looking?
it would be a good idea if they have a blue tint to them.. this happens when the get too hot, thats usualy what causes them to stick to the axle like you are describing.
This may help you going back together, if you need any more help let me know..
