Rear Wheel Bearings

Postby heidebill » Mon Apr 18, 2011 4:49 am



I have the Rear Wheel off, and the bearings felt questionable, So lets replace them, Not much on this forum for the task. Punches and pullers won't work, so I rigged up an expansion plug to remove the bearings. I didn't know that the Drive side is a double bearing ( Murphy would have it) that is the one I tried to get out first. It was a real challenge, I used a Concrete Anchor Bolt and multiple pieces of pipe tapered to get something to hold the bearing. It finally came out.
Bearing Number TM 5402 LUV4 ( this is a double Bearing ) Have not found one yet at a dealer, Special Order, tomorrow I will try some bearing shops

If you have a look at the How to replace your rear wheel bearings article, you'll see a homemade tool made out of a threaded rod (or bolt) that works quite well to get the bearings out.
