Cris Butler: Great how to video, thanks my dodge just started growling yesterday...now
at least i know what im in for.
Takeachance: Thank you for the wonderful informational video. I was able to apply the
steps to my 06' Ram. The only problem I have is the hub is rusted and I
don't seem to be able to break it free.
san379 .: already had my bearings replaced.. 730$
1A Auto Parts: @VileLabyrinth001 Thanks for checking us out!
1A Auto Parts: It should come free for you like we show in the video.
Mike Marshall: Is the purpose of removing the axle to gain access to the three hub bolts?
Shane Sullivan: @1aauto - Well I thought it was done... discovered all my caliper bolts
stressed and broke off in the bolt they thread into... I tourqued to 25
ft/lbs... what did i do wrong? Was still easy and I appreciate the video...
Ricky Osteen: Is this the same for a 2wd model too?
1A Auto Parts: @tonyjoke If it's giving you a hard time on the transmission end you can
use a small pry bar to help push it out of the transmission. It shouldn't
take a whole lot of pressure to remove it. Hope this helps you out.
Jeff Emmons: I just removed the top a-arm from the knuckle and was able to remove it
with no problem. Thanks for all your help.
Denna Tracy: I know with a 98 dodge ram the bolts are a 9/16ths star bolt and it is
impossible to get off the truck the three bolts to the hub assembly is what
im speaking of
1A Auto Parts: If you have the older style ram with the cone style bearings, you would
have to replace them and repack them with your hand.
8SEC6SPD: wow cool video, nice to see this type of detail for some folks who aren't
too sure. I have a rubbing sound which is cyclical, and the sounds speeds
up and slows down as i acxcelerate and/or decelerate. i guess next thing to
do is to confirm it is the wheel bearing. at this point I am not certain.
the last time i had it replaced by a shop, which is unfortunately out of
business. i don't drive my truck much, and it appears to be the wheels
bearing on the drivers side. i am going to check it.
1A Auto Parts: Your Dodge Magnum may be a different process. You may be able to apply some
of the basic steps shown in this video to your application. 1aauto.com
DriftingFWWA: Nice video. However I don't think it's necessary to pull out the entire
axle, I think you can just knock it out of the hub, turn the hub a bit and
pop the end of the axle out of the way to get to the three bolts behind the
1A Auto Parts: @OAM6988 Yes it should be the same if not very close to the 4WD minus the
Jimboh99100: @docdave1978 Had to remove the upper "A" arm from the wheel assembly then
it was easy to remove and put the axle back on.
1A Auto Parts: The driver side and passenger side are going to be the same for the R&R of
vmx1200: The video shows you pulling the CV joint/tranny side first, then pulling
the axle out of the hub.(removal step) I am having the exact same issue
finaddict1969: Great video, got me out of a jam Thanks!!!!!!!!!
Scot Guber: Thanks for the video. Very helpful. I followed the instructions. My CV axle
would not come out as shown but the easy fix to that is to remove the tie
rod and the upper A-arm and the wheel assembly fold away giving very easy
access for removal of the axle. Only added 15 minutes to the project.
DK62: I have a 2004 dodge ram 3500 with a rubbing sound in the drivers side area.
Do you think this is what I am looking at replacing? Also, will your video
here be the same on my hd vehicle? Thanks
adamsjuicedup47: Is this similar to a 95 ram ram 2500
Justin Shearer: would it be the same on a 2wd as you did on this 4wd just minus out the
1A Auto Parts: @SDroogers If you're having trouble on the hub bearing end, try to let the
suspension hang down as far as it will go to see if it helps.
Riley Tucker: Great video, everything was going perfect but I can just not get the
drivers side front axle out of the diff. Mines a 2008, do you know if there
is anything holding it in, inside the front diff??
MrElbowgrease: 1A Auto, thanks for your wonderful video. I replaced my passenger side
easily following your directions. But I cannot get the half shaft off on
the drivers side? Is it different I have an 03 ram 1500 4x4. Thanks!
docdave1978: Just like directme2002 I haven't been able to get my axle off the passenger
side. The axle gets stuck with about a 1/4" to go. Are there any secrets to
getting it to separate from the differential as fast as in the video?
Suspension hanging? Should the wheel be turned and in which direction? Any
help is appreciated, the local guy was $350 to do both wheels not including
MrPhatboy1981: is this the same setup as the 2005 magnum se?
1A Auto Parts: @nomeddeeps The axle should come out of the hub as shown in the video. If
the transmission end of the axle is fighting you a little bit, you can use
a pry bar to help push it out of the transmission, it shouldn't take much
pressure to come free from the tranny. Hope this helps you out.
VileLabyrinth001: I just did one today at work..I usually just knock the axle in enough to
get to the bolts for hub..and the customer watching me the whole
time..frustrating to say the least.
FreddyPrinceJr100: like this video all went good used 2 pry bars to get cv shaft off of
differential when went to put new one on put spindle in wheel tightend a
little and now does not seem to be 1/4 to long to slide over differential
shaft ?? should i take off ball joint ? please help
newjerseybt: I just did this job on a 2004 Dodge Ram. The 3 hub bolts are torqued to 120
ft pounds per the specs I found. I also could not pull the axle clear and
have no lift. I used the front of a wooden chair and a board clamped to it
and a 10 inch punch mounted in the hole in the board. The tip of the punch
was at the same level as the axle. I leaned back in my chair, placed the
punch in between the chair and axle then leaned forward on the chair
pushing the axle back enough to get access to the 3 bolts.
1A Auto Parts: @Shanes03 Thank you for watching our Dodge Ram front wheel bearing
installation video. Have a great day!
mrknowitall1962: @Ou82510 I used a jack and a spacer behind the bearing to put as much
pressure on the bearing as i could. Then i used a hammer to knock the
bearing out. It caame out pretty easy. A bottle jack may have been able to
push the bearing out without using the hammer. Worth a try.
1A Auto Parts: @nomeddeeps You should remove the hub side first as shown in the video,
drop it down and then remove the other end from the transmission.
thebondoman: any advice in getting the axle out? I have an 05 Ram and with the pry bar
it won't clear the spline so I can't get it off. But this is a really great
vid thanks so much for posting.
1A Auto Parts: Doing this may cause you to become unable to get an inspection sticker for
the vehicle. If you have an ABS light on. Have the computer scanned, if
there's a code in there it should tell you what the issue is.
Jeff Emmons: I busted my butt for 2 hrs trying to remove the axle shaft from the axle
spline . I was able to get the seperation but I can not compress the shaft
enough to get it to clear the spline and drop out I noticed you were doing
this video on the passenger side. I am trying to remove the driver side. I
also noticed that you pulled the shaft to the hub and went up to get the
axle to clear the spline shaft. Any ideas what I can try next?
Ken Love: Thanks for the info. It looks like you have a broken outer tie rod end!
Jose Morales: I just did this on my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 (same side as video) and this
video was very helpful. The only issue I had was that my axle did not have
enough clearance to come off the spline. I did not have a lift so that
might have been the problem. I had to disconnect the upper ball joint from
the steering knuckle (this is what the Haynes repair manual said to remove
the axle). After that it was a piece of cake. You will need a puller to do
blkjeeptj: Thanks very much for your video!!! 'bout to go to the garage and do this to
both sides of my '03. Thought I was gonna have to separate upper bj's and
tie rod ends as per a instructions elsewhere on the web. Really glad I
don't have to mess with a loaded front suspension.
1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video on this application, some of
the procedure may be different.
Brummeman: you may have to heat the bolts with a torch to get them off
Jeff Emmons: I cannot get the transmission end of the shaft to clear the spline. That is
my problem. The hub part of the shaft is not my problem.
mai mastah: is it the same as a 2001???
1A Auto Parts: Copy and paste this URL into your browser our video will show you. We also
carry the reblacement hubs for your truck on our website 1aauto.com
1A Auto Parts: The axle is held in place with a locking clip but a good pull will release
the hold from the diff.
mikeharris36: thank you for the video it help out alot an saved me money. Thank you again!
J Tripp: just installed a set of Timkens Hubs on my 07 Ram. This video was extremely
helpful. Thank you!
