    Great video! Thanks for sharing

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arne TheTool says:

    My ears are RINGING and I'm not in the same room, lol… Thanks for the video, I'm paying a buddy to do this job on my 08 now! Cheers!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Hamilton says:

    European cars are hard to work on mostly because it takes special tools tomorrow on them.

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

    Don't blame you for the Audi/VW decision….I did the same thing here.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars daddyphatsax304 says:

    Anything 3M Green Corps is badASS! The super thin cut off wheels are so aggressive. My last employer bought them by the case. And yes they are crazy expensive…luckily tax payer dollars were used in this case. lol

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zr1sparky1 says:

    Whatever it is, Erik, that you choose to do when you retire…. you have earned it!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nathan Haley says:

    Must be perrty nice have a wife like yours that put ups with you lol I still enjoy your videos

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pinballscott1 says:

    There is a car wash next door. Can't the owner of the car wash the undercarriage to stop Eric from breathing all the crud.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Mercer says:

    Dude if I dropped anything larger than a lug nut on the floor my boss goes 🥜 we usually play dialing air hammers with the Subaru bearings.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr572u says:

    Get out the Binford!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shailaja F says:

    Thanks so much! I enjoyed your video!!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon Peterman says:

    Wish they had them like that for the Baja. Rear bearing bolts in like that but nobody offers it as a complete assembly except for the cheap Chinese ones

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scott carling says:

    Eric, do you suggest replacing the hub mounting bolts on the vehicles that have a torque to yield spec?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Albert says:

    Funny dude. Sweet wife. Good show. Thanks

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars friskyanderson says:

    hey! great videos!! What did you spray after you cleaned up the parts with the sanding disc and brake clean? Some sort of rust inhibitor? What is it called? Thanks!!!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan says:

    Eurotrash 😂 yep I’ve worked on VWs and they use every available type of head on every bolt and some of them are made from cheese and some are made from softer stuff, kind of made my diapers damp after snapping a few of them off and wish the nurse would’ve stopped me before i started work on them.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Benoit says:

    Hi Eric, enjoyed your video adn like your work. Loved the way you cleaned all the parts before installing the new bearing. Seems to me that while you have the hub apart ti would be easy to put on new brake pads.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh meek says:

    Wow I get to do all 4 2 front struts 2 ball joints and new brakes all around and alignment going to suck if bolts are seized

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rufus Medrano says:

    When using a power tool you should be wearing eye protection.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spelunkerd says:

    I came back to watch this one again, after falling down the rabbit hole regarding the older style pressed in bearings. These are so much easier, faster, better. Who still uses pressed in bearings, aside from trailers? Even so, lots of old vehicles still on the road.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Bambenek says:

    Hey, fun fact I have the same French press as you. Sadly that's the only thing I have in common with you.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Denny Cosgrove says:

    I enjoy watching your videos

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Kurtz says:

    thanks Eric…Subaru dealer replaced both rear wheel bearings as part of an overhaul…(brakes/valve body)..growling noise from rear axle…right was bad but recommended both to be replaced)…Bob from NJ

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pet Rock's Garage says:

    Eric: "The bad news is… I didn't get the pump exploding on camera".
    Us: DAMN IT!!!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bulldogs#1 says:

    If you work for NAPA, get Eric a sponsorship…

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Teribus13 says:

    I'm surprised you don't get more VW/Audi calls. Even with a small number owned in the close area, my experience is that they're so problematic they make up over their fair proportion of work. I was even silly enough to buy a VAG car for my Mrs. That was a mistake… Should've followed your example and bought her a Kia…

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil manwarren says:

    I have a 2006 outback it keeps blowing door lock fuse do you have a vid of you finding and fixing it ?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrBaddKarma says:

    I love that when you go to "Big Nasty" on Amazon, that the "manufacturer" video is Mr O abusing a ball joint.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Simmonds says:

    Love watching your videos Eric here in the U.K. during lockdown… What music is playing during big nasty gently removing the rear wheel bearing ?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Plante says:

    With all that air hammering, I'm waiting fir the caliper to fall and swing on the hose.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vehicles n' Guitfiddles says:

    Your Big Nasty sequence had me cracking up this time. Makes we want to go out and buy a bigger compressor right freaking now.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph D'Angelo says:

    Really great series of videos enjoyed myself thoroughly and by the way great works job well done sir

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Mauer says:

    I've commented before about this, but I've always been taught and practiced replacing both sides of bearing if I am doing a bearing. Why dont you suggest that to customers? Or on your own builds?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chad harmon says:

    Sneezing like that will clear out a building right now Eric lol

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Whitelaw says:

    wos still called outbacks in the good old usa! over here in Oz same name, just no rust 🙂 great series Mr O

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill McCall says:

    25 years in the future a local news broadcast has a story about a retired man seen in the woods, hunting deer, wearing diapers.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil W says:

    Subaru torque specs 177 ft lbs, Eric O used VW torque specs…gootin’tighten.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Bernardino says:

    Easy peesey he said, he means, with the “help” of BIG NASTY….
    And, when you’re retired in the old folk’s home, you can regale the other codgers with allll of those “back in my day sonny, we has actual internal (infernal) combustion type engines”🤔……..and, “did I ever tell u about the time”🤦🏻‍♂️………..

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Kohut says:

    Nice!!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Upstate Angler says:

    Love watching you work and explaining how to do things.. good job 👍🏼..!!!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Great subi series Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bearded biker pagan says:

    Always wondered why you never by your brake clean in larger containers and use a pump sprayer

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jacob Foxworth says:

    Subie subie dooooo! 😁

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tom h says:

    You have your own fan base on amazon and Big Nasty

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Cavey says:

    Cleaning knuckles

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Cavey says:

    I will send u part number on what I use for cleaning hubs and baking plates while doing bearings

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! compeletemadness says:

    Extreme Long range shooting mark and Sam after work is the deal check it out.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sam S says:

    Great series for Subaru owners, thank you!

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Ray says:

    I can't believe we missed the part where bigfoot when by in a VW bus. How many miles before the rear bearing went out ? Would it be good to replace both at once, or just try your luck on the other side ?
