    transit wheel bearings

    Has anyone changed these on a lwb rear wheel drive transit.Can i get old ones out with out a bearing pulling tool (as i have seen them for around 200) if i can smash them out whats the best way of getting new ones in, or should i take to garage but this looks like going to be expensive anyway.


    hey hey hey calm down lol

    I think you'll need a proper 40 tonne press to put the new bearings in, not something most have around the garage! If u can get the parts cheap, get a local garage to press them in for you - if u can do the rest yourself

    CALL DA AMBERLAMPS!

    Re: transit wheel bearings

    etis is the ford technical information service
    gives wiring and mechanical diagrams for all ford vehicles

    looks like you need to remove flange bolts at backing plate and remove the hub
    bearing in side the diff tube
    youl need a puller or maybe a slide hammer to remove bearing casing too

    looks like a nightmare without the puller but half shaft can be inserted with bearing built
    good luck
