Front wheel bearing

Recommended Posts

Front wheel bearing failure 😢

lost a front bearing the other night on the highway. I had a problem of a caliper overheating and it must of compromised the bearing. It welded itself to the spindle. I bought a pair of used spindles of eBay just in case. Going to try to cold chisel the race off the spindle.

If you have air tools, use a carbide bit to cut most of the way through the bearing and then cold chisel the bearing off. Starting with the cold chisel is a lot of work. If no carbide bit, at least use a high speed wheel to notch the race.
