Removing old wheel bearings

1156 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Shep
I started working no my wheels last night. I was getting a bit tired, so I did not try to much, but I was not able to get the old wheel bearings out. I did not try heat as I am afraid the heat may damage the finish on the wheels. I am probably being too paranoid about that. Anyway, how do you all remove wheel bearings? Any tricks to make it easy?

Years ago I was tutored by an older Mechanic friend of mine.I couldn't get a wheel bearing out of the car we were working on.He said it needs an application of BFAI.Of course I asked what that was.He said,"Brute Force and Ignorance"<grin>
