    Torque spec?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Tapia says:

    With those style hub caps I learned to install the tire with two lug nuts on the east and west lugs down the valve stem. Then slide the hub cap on and install the other three.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars powerram92 says:

    Why did you torque the axle nut but not the caliber bracket bolts? I'm just a diy n trying to learn when do you need to torque the bolts n when not too?

    When New Yorkers say they know about rust PLEASE!!!!!!! 12 feet of snow and 2 feet of salt a year on our roads in Sudbury, Ontario (Thats in Canada btw) now I know how to change mine on my Avenger, it is a bad ass car

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars muqdad alneame says:

    "Not much too it"Except the cost,easily 200 bucks plus at your local shop.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hoodie2103 says:

    Anyone know the torque specs for the hub to knuckle bolts and the axle nut?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shade Tree Mech says:

    I had to do both wheel bearing on my Dodge Stratus. They must have gotten a great deal on cheep wheel bearing, tie rod ends too.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Breakspear-Jones says:

    Over here in the good old Uk we had a the Hillman Avenger total POS even the one called the tiger with the big V8 small block rover motor 🚘

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Caulfield says:

    Love your channel man. Keep up the awesome vids

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Bill Malec says:

    Would love to bring my 20 year old Excursion in for you to look at, it being a southern vehicle, to marvel at the lack of rust. I used to live in upstate, so I'm familiar with the rust.
    Might be an interesting video. Lemme know.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin S says:

    What was the torque spec for the Axle Nut? I have a 2013 Dodge avenger SE I can't find the torque spec for mine.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rya J says:

    I had an 08 avenger, I felt it was a great car but I did have a thermostat, wheel bearing hub, alternator and fuel pump on it between the miles of 130k to 180k miles. Sold it for $3200. 2.7l v6 fun first car. Paid like 5k for it.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    And most folks who live up here would die laughing at those who complain about your hub bearing removal skills have never worked on anything with this much corrosion they'd freak

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Avenger should have called it the pretender pretending to be more than a pregnant rollerskate

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ron ruffolo says:

    Oh Magooh, you've done it again!!!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Second time watching 5/25/2020

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Derek Soucy says:

    One comment, use a BFH to pound on the hub to break it free. Don't need a air hammer. Have to do one, I'll see if I can video it for you.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Walter Sticht says:

    On all these bearing replacement vids I've never seen you put new bolts and axle nuts. You always use the old ones. Shouldn't you use new when replacing the hub?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Frey says:

    You are a repair garage compressor is a sound of progress

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S Bayko says:

    Wait 2009 vehicle without abs??? Wow

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Crimsonfire12 says:

    Anyone that would call you a hack is clearly the hack themselves. Im in Virginia and I still understand the rust problem you deal with. Heck look at more SMA videos, that is some serious rust dude. Keep rocking Eric O!!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JN says:

    I just watched a video from SKF they make a hub / bearing puller, looked pretty easy and QUIET

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Kiser says:

    I'm a lifelong deep southerner, been around machinery all my life and have never heard anyone doubt the hell that salted roads create.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sartoaj says:

    I love it! Let those southern "mechanics" come up here. I had a hub that was so stuck on a Silverado today,
    I had to get the plasma cutter out.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Fletcher says:

    Dang it ! Fergot me squints ! Got a wee bit of rust in me aye .

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Flores says:

    If she told you to chop it off, your kids wouldn't be here ..

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Mcgraw says:

    I have a 2010 dodge avenger is it better to buy the assembly with the hub and bearing or will it be hard to compress a bearing cause its a 2010

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Art Seaman says:

    i accept the challenge.  ill come up there and work on crust.  you come to sw florida and work in august.  106 degrees 100% humidity. heat index ahhhh like 120…

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rpierce62 says:

    Holy Toledo. You changed a wheel bearing in 20 minutes. That's how long it takes me to find the right tools. Another "I am impressed video".
