Honda Front Wheel (Knuckle) Bearing Replacement (4WD)

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

That impact makes me jealous, lol. One thing he didn't do that I would recommend, is to always pull the seals on the new bearings and check for grease.

Never trust they will have sufficient, or any grease at all in them. I've had them shipped to me dry before, so always be sure to check. Use a dentists pick at the corner of the seal, and pull up gently. It will pop off without damaging. Then grease and push it back in by hand, and your good to go.

I agree, most new bearings don't have much grease in them.

watched your viseo. Great!! Went to replace the bearings in my Rancher. The bearing was completely gone. just the balls were inside and the outer races are on the drive shaft. Any tips on how to get just whats left (outer bearing) out? Thanks

Just find an old socket or something that's the same diameter or slightly smaller than the diameter of the outer race and sit it against the outer race and drive it out. If you have a welder, you can run a bead of weld around the outer bearing race and it will come out a lot easier.

x2, if that doesn't work you could also take a dremel with a little cut off wheel and cut a notch out of it before knocking it out. Just be careful not to cut into the hub itself.

Thanks guys. Went back out to the property to find my plow mount that I forgot to take off for thr summer. Stopped at a local atv shop (small private) got them out and new ones installed in both for $25. That's what he did. Just spot welded some booger on the race then knocked them out. Its all back togather and ready for riding tomarrow.

Is that the steel seal that you remove and replace?
I would hate to mess up a new bearing to add grease.

Has been confirmed that only the rubber seals are removable.

I replaced the bearings in my 4WD step by step with the video, everything went together great but when I rode my 4 wheeler there was a loud clicking noise on the same side that I changed the bearing in, Im lost any suggestions and also the black tube (not the brake line) comining from the brakes, what is it for?

Tbetts9<<<Welcome to da forums... That loud clicking could be the cv joint clicking due to lack of grease,cracked,broken,or worn out,or not fully tightened down with the castle nut..That black tube is the brake drum breather hose that allow hot air out when the brakes get hot,the air expands,and rather than force it out through the seals,they chose to let it out via a hose...
