How to Change a Wheel Bearing (short and fast version)
Learn to replace a pressed wheel 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 $400-1000 depending on your vehicle.
