2003 Mazda Front Wheel Bearing Replacement (Press In Type Bearing)
Wheel bearing replacement in a 2003 Mazda Protege 5. Press in style
bearings done without using a shop press. Specific for Mazda Protege, but
many of the techniques will apply to vehicles with pres-in-style wheel
It's a good idea to try to use the bearing-press-kit the way it was
intended. If the bearing doesn't budge, BE CAREFUL using a breaker bar. The
bolt supplied with the press-kit is not very strong...it with probably
shear off the head. Try to give the bearin a few hits with a sledge hammer
as seen in the vid..it will get the bearing moving. Then you can use the
press-kit, and it should finish pressing out the bearing.
Pressing in the bearing with the kit should be no problem.

In Part-2 of this two part series, we will replace the rear shock and
spring. See Part- for the front shock/spring/strut replacement.
The Bentley repair manuals will cover standard shock and spring replacement
for the various BMW and MINI models. This DIY will assume that the DIYer
has the applicable Bentley manual for additional reference as well as
fastener torque values. Note that we will be installing the Bilstein
PSS-10 coil-over kit. However, the procedures would be the same for any
common shock/strut replacement (including installing sport springs, if
• New shocks/struts (Bilstein, Koni, Sachs, etc.)
• New sport or stock replacement springs, if desired (BMW, BavAuto,
• New Shock install kits (compression bumpers, dust shields, spring pads,
• New upper strut and shock mounts
• New strut & shock mount gaskets (as required)
• Rear shock mount reinforcing plates
• Bentley Repair Manual
• BavAuto Non-Marring pry bar set
• 13mm through 18mm ½"drive socket & ratchet set with various extensions
• 4mm through 8mm Allen keys or bits (for ratchet use)
• 13mm through 18mm combination wrench set
• Assorted flat and Phillips screwdrivers
REAR (applies directly to the E46 3-series, but the E36 3-series uses the
same steps and procedures):
1) Safely raise the rear of car, with suspension hanging.
2) Remove the wheels.
3) Place a jack under the lower shock mount eye or the wheel hub assembly.
Slightly raise the suspension (just enough to remove the downward tension
on the shock).
4) Remove the lower shock mount bolt.
5) Lower the jack and allow the suspension to hang free.
6) Remove the trunk side trim panel to access the upper shock mount.
7) Remove the two 13mm nuts from the upper shock mount, at the top of the
8) Lower the shock out of the vehicle.
9) Assemble the new shock with new compression bumper, dust tube and upper
mount. Be sure to re-use the large lower and upper washers for the upper
mount. These washers must cup away from the mount. lower washer cups
downward and upper washer cups upward.
10) If the spring is being replaced, it can be removed BEFORE
re-installing the shock. Have a helper pull downward on the wheel hub
assembly and pull the spring out from between the chassis and the upper
11) Using new upper and lower spring pads, install the new spring in the
same manner as the original was removed. Install the new spring pads, then
install the spring.
12) Install the new shock. Place a new shock mount gasket on the shock
mount and insert the assembly up into the shock tower. If installing a
shock mount reinforcement plate, place the plate over the two shock mount
studs, on top of the shock tower, before installing the two nuts. Install
the two nuts. Install the trunk trim panel.
13) Install the lower shock mount bolt. Be sure to install the washer on
the bolt before installing the bolt. Use the jack to raise the suspension
assembly to align the lower shock mount with the hub mounting point, so the
bolt can be inserted and threaded. Tighten the bolt.
14) Repeat for the other side.

tools. Please note, this vehicle has the bearing built into the hub. Some

Time Attack between race driver Mika Salo and owner of the car. Show's
concept is that tuners bring their cars to the show and race driver tests
it and gives feedback.
Owner says it has M5 engine but if it's 2.5, which engine it could possibly
be?? Likely it's a mistake. Subtitles are not finished yet.

How to Change a Wheel Bearing (long and detailed version)
This video shows how to change a pressed bearing in a Ford, specifically a
95 Ford Windstar, but this method will be similar for all pressed bearing
vehicles. The main steps are to take off the spindle nut, tire, brake
caliper, and rotor. Then remove the bolts from the lower control arm ball
joint, tie rod, and strut. Remove the steering knuckle, then press out the
bearing and hub/spindle. Then press in your new bearing and hub/spindle.
This job is a little more complex but can still be easily done by any
amateur mechanic. You will save $400-800 depending on your vehicle. Pleas

The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.
