  • Q:

    How do I install this bearing? Do I just need to remove the axle and the axle seal? Do I need any special tools?

      A:

      I'm happy to help, John! Install the cup into the wheel bore. The cup must be fully seated against the step in the bore. Make sure the taper of the cup is in the proper orientation. Install the cone into the cup. This is a loose fit. Install the flinger washer on top of the cone. Install the closure over the flinger washer. Make sure to fully seat the closure around flinger washer and cup. Repeat above procedure for the opposite side. Install the wheel into the caster. Place a spacer between the closure and the caster leg on each side. Slide the axle through the caster legs and wheel assembly. Install a castle nut and tighten until the wheel will not spin. This will seat the bearings into the bore. Loosen the castle nut until the wheel is free spinning. Tighten the castle nut until the wheel begins to drag. Align the slots in the castle nut with the cross holes in the axle by tightening or loosening the castle nut. If tightening, the wheel must be able to spin somewhat freely. If loosening, the wheel cannot have any end play. The bearing should have some pre-load. Install cotter pin or roll pin through the slotted nut and axle. Lubricate bearings through the grease zerk using grease.

  • Q:

    I have a 2002 Subaru Outback with a sort of droning noise, very low frequency, coming from the left rear. Other knowledgeable owners suggest this is a bearing failure in progress. I have done rear brakes before so feel willing to take this on. Is this the appropriate part and are there any other fittings I will need?

      A:

      Yes, the wheel bearing should be the possible cause of the problem and this Driveworks HUB and Bearing Assembly -part# NT512183 is an exact fit for your 2002 Subaru Outback. However, if you are a novice I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

  • Q:

    1993 Toyota corolla. I hear a slightly louder noise coming from the right rear ... and when I turn right, at speed, it goes away (that is, I'm taking weight off that tire). I hear the noise going straight and turning left. My guess is the rear bearing as the brake guys never seem to worry / care that they're getting debris in there. Will the bearing do the trick or do I need the assembly?

      Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.

      No, this is not the part you are looking for. You can choose Beck/Arnley Wheel Bearing Hub Assembly which suits your vehicle.

  • Q:

    I wanted to make sure that it was possible to replace just the bearing in REAR assy.
    I went to a local parts store, and they told me that I had to replace the entire hub not just the bearing.
