mine took about 15 minutes


On the flip side, its far easier for those of us with rear disc to replace the wear items (rotors & pads) than it is to replace drums and shoes.

And I'll never get tired of going out to my car and seeing this behind the rear wheels:

AWESOME write-up SuperFlea !
I was quoted almost $1000 for both rear wheels to be done and i said "ha!"
I should look into it, cuz i think those look like a standard SKF bearing that you can buy directly from the bearing manufacturer for basically 50% off dealer price.
Meanwhile i will contribute to the dealer's Ferrari fund :)

Thanks dude! Yeah, honestly it's very simple. The hardest part is removing thebearings, but take them to a shop and they'll do it for you.

$60.99 for the Wheel Bearing / Hub Assembly from Autozone, and If i'm reading this right, it means your installation would consist of the retaining nut.

I was wondering why I had bought a 30mm socket. Now I remember.
This reminded me of my trail with a bad rear wheel bearing. Poor guy at the show earned his money trying to get the old bearing out of the hub. I think he used all of the 10 tons the press had to get it to come out.

Unhappy Rear wheel bearings

Is it OK to drive your Focus when the rear wheel bearings need to be replaced. I am on a fixed income (SS Disability) and I am saving up for the repairs but I need to drive the car. I haven't driven it in over a week but I tired of bumming rides and I'm sure everyone is tired of me asking for them.

Yeah, it's ok. You'll just have that buggin noise. Also, i would suggest you drive lightly. Honestly, i drove on my bad bearings for 6 months or so, the noise just got louder and louder.

You'll be ok man!!
