Default Front Wheel Bearing

Anyone have any tips on replacing the bearing on front wheel drive '92 SC with ABS. I can get the hub and bearing assembly off the car, need help getting bearing out and new one pressed in. Tips?

Unless you have your own press I would buy the bearing from your dealer and have your local machine shop (Napa,National Bushing etc.)press in the bearing.

I have access to a press. How hard to get the old bearing out of the hub?

Haven't worked a hub, I would assume the same effort as working with a gear puller?

With a press it's easy to remove the bearing. There are special tools to ease the process. Sometimes the race stays on the hub. I use an air hammer with a chisel end to slide it off.

My fault, I'm new and not looking at dates. Don't hold it against me because I disagree with Wolfman ssicarman. I'm only trying to help. I'm not trying to take over.

That can be done, and done better, without putting down others. Otherwise, one might mistake you for an obnoxious know-it-all. That would be a mistake - - right?

So, what's the right 'Socket' (Size and Depth) for cracking out the Front wheel hub to shaft nut?

Per Wolfman, 30mm. Standard depth works. Generally AZ will lend it for free.

30mm 1/2" standard size will work fine then?

That's a pretty big-caliber socket....hehe, thanks!

On the rears I never bother to just replace the bearing. The rear hubs are much less expensive than the fronts. Replace the entire hub assembly, it just bolts right on.

Oh sorry, forgot to mention, I do have a whole hub. I got one because the other is cracked. Is this no problem to take off then, because I just searched for wheel bearing, which is what the dealership said was wrong, but he said hub when I asked him more about it. Thought it was the same.
