Anyone used one of these wheel bearing tools?

Recommended Posts

I've got a rotational noise coming from my disc hitting my caliper bracket after a wheel bearing change.

I've got a spare hub to swap in so I'm going to try that next but think I'll need one of these tools to swap it.

anyone used one of these on their starlet?

Don't need that tool to swap the hub over? Just a soft face mallet to tap the driveshaft out of the hub.

 

ah right, was thinking i might need it to press the hub in? Heard that the bearings can split otherwise, could be wrong

Not  that I'm aware of on these cars. It's been a few years since I did both of mine on my car, but for an amateur mechanic it was very straight forward with basic tools.

Also make sure you don't accidentally pull the shaft out of the box the smell of used bag oil is mank !

That tool, it took a 25 ton press to change my front bearings, d/s had around 17 T on it for about 15 mins before it popped, p/s was around the same :)
