My front wheel bearings are going bad in my 1998 hyundai elantra and it's going to be about 500$ to get them changed by a shop, so I'm going to do it myself, anybody got any info on this?
and do i need to buy the wheel bearings or the complete hub assembly?
Its not a hub, Its a pressed in wheel bearing, You have have to have a slid hammer, an
a Press in order to do the job your self. Its not a very easy job, Not to bad if you got the
tools to do the job. Remove the wheel, Remove the two 17mm bolts holding brake caliper,
remove rotor, remove 32mm nut on axle, bolt slid hammer on spindle, use side hammer to
remove spindle, remove 17mm nut holding tie rod/hammer tie rod out, remove two bolts to hub to
stut, then remove 19mm lower balljoint nut/hammer out balljoint. Now you will have hub out Remove clip
from rear of hub an use press to press out bearing/press new bearing in an install clip back on rear. reinstall
