Rear Wheel Bearing

Recommended Posts

I need to replace a rear wheel bearing for my 2004 Rav4 Cruiser ACA23R the question I have, can I simply replace the bearing or do you have to change the whole hub? as all I can find for sale is the complete hub with the bearing. I presume you can simply remove the bearing itself and replace that without needing the whole hub! has anyone done that?

Would anyone have the diagram for the rear bearing? I may be able to work it out from that...

Cheers

By the time you pay the labour to have it pressed off or buy the specialist tools required(press, press adapters etc.), it will be cheaper to buy the hub/bearing assembly.

I had to change a noisey rear left bearing. There are a few questions and answers on this thread: http://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/55681-rav4-rear-bearing-removal/?tab=comments#comment-567884

I couldn't loosen the retaining nut despite trying all of the suggestions. I was lucky, took it to the mechanic next door to my work, he supplied and fitted a new one for $265. Considering the Toyota dealership wanted over $500, I was pretty happy.

The Toyota dealer said it was a 1 hour 15 minute job. Search Youtube and you'll find a 17 minute video. I reckon I would have had it done in 30 to 40 minutes - if I could have got the effing nut off.

Let us know what you do.
