Need wheel bearing help
« on: January 17, 2017, 03:52:27 PM »

I need to replace the rear wheel bearings on my new(to me) XR2.  I checked the tech manual and couldn't find anything on it and did a search here and could find nothing except that one side was a reverse thread and the nuts had to be replaced after removal.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, just like front bearings on an RWD car.  Liked him doing it outside so there's plenty of light, hope he didn't bother anyone in the trailer park.  Hey I used to live in a trailer park.  I don't know if the dust cap with a hole in it is such a good idea.

Thanks again Jack Byrd

Yea its a fairly good video, and im glad it helped you. It feels nice to give back, considering how many questions and stuff I ask for.

That's the great thing about the forum.  All my experience has been in American muscle cars and vintage cars.  Lots of carburetors, even my Festiva has a carburetor..
