How To Replace Front Wheel Bearing & Hub - Ford Escort ZX2
This video covers how to replace the front wheel bearing & hub on a 2003 Ford Escort ZX2. It is an in-depth guide on how to do this job without the need for power or air tools. This video also applies to other Ford Escort models & years. This is a friend of a friends car. My friend was driving down the road and "suddenly" heard a loud grinding noise. He pulled over, pulled the wheel off, and noticed the spindle nut had spun off and the wheel hub was extremely loose. When I showed up with my tools the hub came off in my hand and some balls from inside the bearing came out with it. Luckily he didn't crash because the only thing holding the wheel on the car was the caliper around the rotor. The bearing & hub were clearly shot. My theory about what caused this is that the spindle nut wasn't installed to the proper torque at some point, which caused the wheel bearing to prematurely fail ruining the hub along with it. The spindle nut worked its way loose due to heat cycling & excess vibrations, compounding the bearing problem. That's my theory anyways. Wheel Bearing: Duralast part # DL510013 or Timken part # 510013 Wheel Hub: Duralast part # 930-550 Wheel Seal: Duralast part # D1932 or Timken part # 1932S The information in this video is for educational purposes only.
