    20min wheel bearing replacement.. can’t beat that…im going to try it

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Earl Faneuf says:

    Watching the video it looks like an easy job but need some tools I don't have. I see the tool with a chizel head to try to remove the assembly. That is the main one I do not have. I assume it hooks to some klind of compressor tool. Is this expensive? Without a garage lift we are doing things on the ground with car stands and jacks. The vehicle I have ia a lot older (2009) hybridm, but the part looks the same from what I ordered from AUTO ZONE. So I think this video will track quite similar. The torque specs I will need to look up.

    Now one last question. I have a small mobile mechanic who offered to install it for me for $250 (I know I can get him down to $200 easily). What is the groups thoughts on this. It is worth my doing it or should I consider letting him do it. It depends on how much the tools will cost too I guess. I will need to buy the sockets for the large nut and the chizel head tool. The rest I should have.

    Feedback would be most appreciated

    You Never give the torque specs??? What's the sense this is why I'm here!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt S says:

    I have to do front press-in wheel bearings on two of my cars…. Why can't they be like this

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lu ross says:

    So my prius spec is 159lbs. I had to use 225lbs to stop the popping noise when hard breaking. Is it ok to over torque? Thanks to everybody who responds

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Sbraccia says:

    are Koyo front hubs and NSK rear hubs made well?? thanks man

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TAK1313 says:

    Ummm…the auto generated cc on this vid says "welcome back to the self-denial channel…"

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Papp says:

    1 minute and 6 seconds for the axle nut. I counted lol.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john colosio says:

    Good video but if your going to do a job like this then before ride and after work is done ride should be in the video

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stevo Gman says:

    Dude! This was the funniest crap I’ve seen in a while, in a good way!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Bye says:

    Holy crap that was on there

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ulf Holmström says:

    Great video! Thanks! You should protect your ears 👂 😎

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    Full size impact

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kyle Trump says:

    Damn bro. Ear Plugs!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joel Grant says:

    If you live in an area with road salt…you might find this job impossible as completed in this video. My bearing hub could not be removed with a 22-ton press from behind the knuckle! It required heating the nuckle and a heavy equipment puller plus a 1000lb impact on the puller. It basically exploded on release, sending parts flying 20 feet. That was after soaking in penetrating oil for a night. So… your mileage may vary with air impact tools. I tried to do it with an impact hammer and a 4 lb sledge, and it would have taken a year.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MaxmilsRS says:

    The brake clean. Lmao. And I thought I was alone. I have a suggestion for Prius owners, use original parts when it comes to your Prius. I'm at 238,000 miles with basic maintenance, God willing will make it to 500,000

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Moore says:

    What is that a central pneumatic

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A B says:

    Hi, you know that brake cleaner, oil and other chemicals are soaking into your skin and in your body right? Guess a pair of gloves is too much and you rather pay with a few years off your life?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheBend Fisher says:

    Good video. If I'm not mistaken, the first socket you used in the video looks to be a chrome 12 point socket. Those are prone to shatter when used with impacts and you are not wearing safety glasses. Safety 1st my friend!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars breeze787 says:

    The "BRAKE CLEANER" Don 🎵 Don 🎵 Don 🎵 Dooooon🎵!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MISC BITS says:

    I have a long-standing personal policy of doing both sides when bearings need replacing in my rides on the basis of where one is gone the other won't be far behind (experience with fleets was that they'd usually be a few months apart). Do you recommend that for your clients or only do it if they ask?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james guralski says:

    I love the 1 piece hub n barring! We always used a bfh to get them out! You do magic with that air chisel..

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nando Meh says:

    Just buy a knuckle from the junkyard or eBay, most come with a ball joint makes it super easy and quick
