In this video I replace the front wheel bearing and brakes on a 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser. It is a press in bearing but overall a pretty easy job to do. -Enjoy!

    Man you made that look so easy. Great video. I had to replace one on a friend's pt cruiser in my parking lot and had a heck of a time with the lower control arm.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Farley says:

    Good video, well done.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bgc673 says:

    Great video. Really appreciate the help.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lloyd Hughes says:

    We’ll done

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Prince says:

    Very nice and informative

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Hobbs says:

    Love the sparks coming off the socket when you were removing the bearing! SMA and his light saber!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jeffery warburton says:

    A steering wheel puller helps push calipers back. The inside and outside pads don't interchange. Timing belts are known to cause cursing. Your Rear, tail lamp sockets may be used as a test light.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Desmond Warner says:

    waaaay too easy. No blow torch needed!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don The Plumber says:

    You made it look so easy!Nice work.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars r.michael Ringelberg says:

    Found the part number (4668361AD). It's been discontinued and I can't find one. Any thoughts?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars r.michael Ringelberg says:

    I can't even find a pert number for the bearing retainer plate. Any ideas on a place to get one or even the part number? Oh and here in the NaCl capitol I had my Oxy-acetylene tourch on most of the time which was not all bad with a temp of3 degrees and wind chill of -10.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Sierra says:

    Nice job. Love your videos with M.O.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kazil Ziya says:

    Love when a plan comes together without a hitch.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy Saunders says:

    IN YOUR EXPERT OPINION, ARE THE PT'S AS AWFUL AS THEY'RE GENERALLY REGARDED?
    i KNOW THE CAMBELT IS STUPIDLY INVOLVED TO DO, BUT OTHERWISE?
    APART FROM ELECTRICAL GREMLINS?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    Mark the strut bolts with a sharpie to avoid the price of an alignment.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Meredith says:

    That car must they had a California previous life I am never seen you take things apart as easily as you did on on that PT don't you wish they were all that easy there Eric .

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D G says:

    Re using the old split pin…tut tut Mr. O. 😉 First time in 5 years of watching I can give Eric some advice in the 'ole comments section'! Just kidding! Great video as usual 👍👍

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

    you got to get a bargain on brake kleen

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

    it is a different world working on a lift

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

    must not be a NY car

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr. Socko says:

    I'll never forget when these ugly monstrosities came out and they had waiting lists a mile long. What were people thinking? These are the single ugliest vehicles of all time!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Hawkins says:

    Do you have a part # or a name for that tool set you used to press the bearings in and out? Getting ready to tackle this job on my wife's 09 cruiser and this set will be a life saver.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dana Pitman says:

    Seems like everybody either loves or hates those cars. I lean towards the hate side.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Liszewski says:

    I replaced the whole assy from my low mileage spare front end. A month later that bearing cooked too. Can't find a new assy so I'm doing the new bearing per your video. 150k plus miles on the car. Everything came off easy on the first try so this time was easy also. Great video.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WINK says:

    good music

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Doane says:

    Where did you find the lower control arm tool?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ChuckWD33158 says:

    thanks for the vid. Wish I had a lift though.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dillydave13 says:

    I always find a little lube goes a long way.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert says:

    Damn good video.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Denis Leblanc says:

    I got the front bearing tool but still take the knuckle off, find it easier since i do shit at ground level

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bg147 says:

    The sub frame is still in its factory paint.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Mitchell says:

    A big puss ball?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brett Williams says:

    Watching older videos and spit out water when he did the Brak-Clean sound the 2nd time cuz he missed the first.. 😉 LOVE IT!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Ridley says:

    That bearing retainer plate looks kind of sketchy compared to a snap ring in a casting. Never seen that before (never owned a Chrysler product)

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph George says:

    Where do you get the red towels? Are they better than the blue?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Curt Wuollet says:

    It's interesting to note that you can buy all the parts and even the harbor freight tool and a manual and still come out way ahead DIY. And next time, it's almost free. I had someone do it and they screwed up the bearing. It was the first time I let someone work on my car and the last.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Mcmorris says:

    Man you are always on point sir.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SALEEN961 says:

    I have a hubshark kit that is practically unused because every time I try to slide hammer the hub out it never moves. The last bearing I replaced maxed out our hydraulic press and the hub still didn't flinch until until I heated up the knuckle with a torch. You know it's stuck when you're getting a cheater pipe to get a little extra force out of the hydraulic press.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bmaxdlux says:

    🤣What did you expect, it's a PT Cruiser…
    they were built to fall apart.🤣

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fubar totale says:

    As long as there are Chryslers, mechanics will be able to feed their families.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Laumann says:

    Hey hey!!! I'm doing this today on a friends Part Time cruiser!

    Came to see uf there's a snap ring retainer or not and the torque spec on the hub nut.

    Someone who owns a butterfly petting zoo tightened the hub last time and the weight of the braler nar was all it took to break loose.

    ….im certain the hub nut needs at least 1 ugga dugga

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike thompson says:

    That is normal bearing job out west ..
