Hi, I need to replace my front wheel bearings / hub assembly - A couple of questions.

#1. How easy would it be to just replace the bearings v's the entire hub assembly?

#2 What part numbers should I be looking for? (2007)- is REPK283703 correct for the front?
I've seen them for around $100.00 on JCWhitney (Assembly) or as cheap as $70. on amazon.....

thanks.

Mileage=?????

If it's like any other front wheel drive car Remove wheel, hang brake caliper to side,. Undo the large nut which secures the hub (part that brake disc/wheel bolts to) disconnect C/V (drive axle)from spindle/hub on inboard side (C/V joint side) then you knock out the spindle inwards. Next step, drive "hub" onwards to separate it from bearing. After that you have bearing in front of you, remove large clirclip which holds it in, then knock out old bearing.

*Note: On some cars you may want to see if removing wheel center cap allows you to get a socket on the large nut that you have to remove to separate the hub from the bearing. Aleternatlivy BEFORE removing the caliper, crank the car up and have a assiatant hold the brakes while youb break the nut loose.

Note that before trying to loosen nut always use a chisel to knock back the part of the nut which was hammered into the slot-which keeps the nut from backing off over time. Note you only want to knock it back enough so it clears the threads as you will be hammering this back after nut it torqued.

Something like that.

Hard? Most of the time no.

Doing it that way (Not replacing entrie hub) you're have the cost of the bearing, vs the cost of the entire hub, and you don't mess with alignment or damage lower ball joint or rack tie rod end.

I thought the wheel bearings were covered under 10yr/100,000mile warranty?

What's your mileage?
5yr/60k miles= Most things -with exceptions:

Freon = 1 yr (Yes 1yr... they have alot of confidence in the A/C system, eh?)
Radio 3yrs
Paint /Cosmetic=3yr
Body rust out= 7 yrs
Wearable items= 1yr


Beyond 5yrs, 60k miles= to 10yr, 100k miles

"Selected Engine, Transmission /Trans-axle components... the fine print I read elsewhere being:
Internally lubricated engine, transmission parts.
*Might not include wearable items such as clutches.. YMMV

Wheel bearings are covered for 10 yrs/100,000 for the original owner. 5 yrs/60,000 for subsequent owners.

Did you get these replaced yet? Did you check with your dealer?
