#1309185 - 08/30/06 08:28 AM

Hi everebody,

I changed my right wheel bearing today and press it with the right tool and the hub too.

My problem know, I want to know the best way to put the end of the transaxle throught the hud without damaging the bearing or the transaxle. i can use a hammer but I don't it's a good ides.

Let me know how I can do that.

well there should be a tool out there for that, maybe check autozone or some other place for a rental tool ...

my father made a plate that bolts to the wheel studs and allows for a bar and threaded rod that has a coupler that mates to the axle and then you can pull the axle into the bearing ...
