MrZanadoo: Hi, I have enjoyed a few of your video's, do you have one on replacing the
rear wheel bearing assembly on a 2004 subaru Impreza TS, i watched the one
on the outback, thanks in advance and keep the video camera rolling
loveskateboard4: holy crap you are a genius my dad and I were beating, prying, and cussing
for hours trying to get it out then tried this and it took a 1/2 hour thank
you so much
two extensions were lost in the process but was well worth
jarin wilson: Brian, I've had wheel hub bearing assemblies so seized into the steering
knuckle, a 40 ton press would not press it out... it began to distort the
entire steering knuckle. I was left with no other option but to cut them
out. I've never used this option that you clearly demonstrated(not because
it won't work, but when I've invested a large sum of cash on tools, I just
won't risk destroying an extension, unless its an 'el cheapo')
Leslie Woods: Many years ago I had a car that belong to some one else and the right front
bearing was locked on so tight that cut it off, with out heating the sub
axel it moved and fitted new bearings and the was able to sell the car and
get a new one
Ali Aliali: soak for a hour..with coca-cola it do the job
Bad Dog: I've tried about everything but this yet. Thanks for talking slow that's
about my speed of course the audience is for motorheads lol.
Eddie the Grouch: Bad acting aside, this tip IS priceless and I wish I had known it before
doing my bearing a few years ago. To others: that rust/corrosion ring will
resist big hammers, big torches, pullers, and strong language. DO NOT USE
a regular jaw puller as all it will do is drive the axle into differential.
TheIrongutz: Just use a puller, safer!
James Crowton: I would use Silikroil and let it soak for a hour.. The stuff Eats rust like
candy within a hour! Best stuff ever!! No hammer or press needed
Chris Gloege: How the hell did you get the planes to land on the ceiling like that?
kikyle: You rock man!! That was so easy u saved me so much BS. Im glad I found your
Jose Rozo: thanks
Danny Smith: How would I do this on a 99 blaze? Just yesterday, I attemted replacing my
ball joints.. I spent 4 hrs trying to get the hub and splash off....
Nothing worked!!! Please help a.s.a.p
Darian Benford: Thanks. It works.
Chris Henson: crap that one isnt even rusty you should of seen the ones i just did we had
a 8 pound sledge and a cutting torch still took 7 hours
Ian Sutherland: You saved my ass bro what a genius idea worked like a charm!!!
Willie Manley: Thanks for the awesome tip...I still can't believe how well that
worked...and it was fast! I've been beating, heating, slide hammering and
nothing worked...great tip!
Nigel McKenzie: Awesome!
akorczvr6: freaking brilliant
BOB FOLTY: I think it would blow the seals in the power steering unit.
I have taken the off used a porter power against the spring and it was all
we could do to get it. when it poped it jumped out about a foot.
Quadrigius: Best tip ever. Without your advice I would have scrapped my 1995Volvo 850
even though I had bought a replacement wheel bearing. I have never worked
on any car before but thought I would have a go at it because I had no
money for garage repairs (it would have cost more than the car is worth).
When I couldn't get the assembly out I thought, well that's the end of that
then, scrap yard for you; then I came across your video and decided to give
it one more try and WOW! It popped right out the very first time.
Brilliant. HUGE thanks. Happy Christmas and have a grrrreat 2014.
James Crowton: Couldn't you have heated it up and just pounded it off?
john olinsky: I have been working on my hub bearing I like you tip I have to see if it
John Sliwinski: On my knees in the snow propane torch and BMF hammer beating till after
dark. went inside watched this video and tried next day. done in 5
minutes! this guy is FN Genius! thank you soo much!
James Crowton: Brian, if my steering knuckle is not available to use as a press. Can I
just use mapp gas and heat it up and pound it out?
bigdaddy377able: My wheel came off while i was driving and i find out that my rotor is
cricked also when i rotate the rotor something scrapes , and i cant put a
wheel on it because the lugs dont want to go in when you try to tighten
them, do you know what coudlve mest up?
T AGH: Just wanted to add another variation of this. I tried this with the socket
and extension and it busted the extension. Decided to use a heavy steel lug
nut breaker bar and braced it from the frame to the back of the hub plate
(where the lug bolts are) this time it worked great. Thanks for the great
idea ! I also like the outback delivery, well done,
goodcat1982: those bolts are threaded so it you force them out you will damage the inner
thread making harder or impossible to get a proper fit for the new bolts!
jack london: I would like to try it except the head of my hub bolts are rusted. I think
they were 13mm 12 point but there isn't much left. How do I get off rusted
godfather173: I like your videos but they make me dizzy with all that camera movement
please get a tripod
PDES Camden: Oh yeah, there's a big warning to not do this on rack and pinion, doh! I
guess I'll use a small bottle jack or something..
Adam V: Brian i had to do those this summer in my 98 Dodge Dakota. I just used an
air hammer to do more or less the same thing. Although i am pretty sure i
cussed a lot more.
jjrock5: @briansmobile1 I don't know how you're not going off on that guy but I'll
say it since you don't like to cuss. Masster64 is a freaking pickle.
free speech: Could have used that 3 months ago. Had it all torn apart except I could get
it out because of the rust. Had to put it back together and pay a shop $200
to repeat with a press! Great videos!
Kelmo2828: can we get one for the rear hub pls!
xandervk: Just turn off the sound, peachcake.
briansmobile1: You have now stated that you don't like my personality or even my voice.
You basically don't like me- you only like the mechanical instruction. Is
this correct? -You're being offensive and bossy and now you expect me to
meet your demands. Is that right? Can you imagine what my response to this
would be in person? It is my finding that people who are disrespectful and
yet demanding of others find life to be very lonely, difficult, and
frustrating. How do you find it to be?
CrazedGunman32796: Hello Matt
muddmonky: OMG i never thought of that. on my 98 cherokee sport i had to torch it till
the dam brake dust shield actually melted and driped out from behind it and
the entire hub war orrange then one big wack with a sledge and it poped off.
matt: You sound like a retard. Thanks for going out of your way to make yourself
sound like a ass.
NAHAAFB: Now I understand why the warning on the back of aerosol cans says to use in
a well-ventilated area.
Mary Chewie: Couldn't watch it. The voice is so annoying!
briansmobile1: Thanks Matt! What's funny is I speak higher than my natural voice so people
aren't afraid of me and I'm not too loud.- he speaks lower than his.
Growing up I was always getting shooshed for being too loud in just my
normal talking voice so I just tried speaking higher- it worked.
briansmobile1: You're welcome Mark- and thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you had
NETWizzJbirk: Already bought some now. Thanks
pappysully: I ended up removing the entire steering knuckle so I could work on it.
Supporting the knuckle on a couple of blocks of wood, I put the hub bolts
about 3/4 in, then I went around to each bolt with a heavy hammer until the
hub was free. It was not much extra work, and it saved me some aggravation
in the long run. Use a socket to protect the heads, or file the flats after
beating on the bolts.
briansmobile1: I tried that and got to the channel, but only vids of Search and Restore. I
got "No Results Found" when I searched videos on the channel on "Unit
Bearing" and "Bearing". Are you talking about old school hubs for economy,
strength, and lower cost future maintenance?
Hats1976: I just used this method today,it works AWESOME! I would have still been
pounding the crap out of the bearing if I never seen this.
Nicholas Daw: i'd suggest speaking in your normal voice all the time. we already know you
aren't scary and are filled with great tips. now LET'S HEAR YA.
