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 bearings.
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.

Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement
Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem. I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest.
Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've put out there, that would be great.
