Replacement of the rear wheel hub bearing in vehicles with front-wheel drive of the VAZ range is a laborious and complex process.
Without special pullers the master in this case can not do.
Although some "craftsmen" manage to do this kind of work with a sledgehammer and improvised drills.
You will need
- A set of metalwork tools,
- Universal puller for wheel bearings,
- Torque wrench,
- Locksmith's grip,
- Supports for wheels,
To start, you need to install the car onFlat surface. Then, remove the protective cap from the hub with a screwdriver or special blade from the hub, which prevents the penetration of sand and dust to the bearing of the assembly.
With the help of a small beard, bend the edge of the nutBearing of a nave from a groove of a pin. And then unscrew it a little. Place the stops under the front wheels of the vehicle, release the parking brake and engage the reverse gear. After this, for two or three turns, unscrew all four bolts securing the wheel to the hub. Now, with the help of a jack, hang the back of the machine, setting the beam on a secure support, and remove the wheel.
Next, you need to dismantle the brake pads. Unscrew the hub bearing fixing nut completely and remove the steel washer underneath. Using a puller, remove the wheel hub, then tighten it in the metal vise and remove the locking ring that fixes the bearing from the inside. Then remove the old bearing from the hub with a puller.
The disassembled hub must be washed in kerosene or diesel fuel, strictly observing the fire safety measures. The assembly is carried out in reverse order dismantling:
- the new bearing is pressed in,
- the circlip is installed,
- the hub is put on the trunnion,
- the washer is inserted and the nut is screwed,
- brake pads are installed,
- the wheel is mounted.
By means of a jack the car falls onHard surface, then the new hub bearing nut is tightened with a force of 250 N / m, followed by its crocheting in the groove of the pin, and also the bolts securing the wheel disc to the hub. At the final stage, a protective cap is installed.
