Default last request for advice for rear wheel bearings... i promise

ok, whats the deal with the drum assembly on the hub?

do i have to completely dismantel the brake system... and then pres the bearing out?


do the seals just sit in place? or are they sandwiched between items such as the axle and spindle?

dave, if you can recall any information, i would greatly appreciate it...

otherwise, i have been studying the service manual and it goes as far as telling me to remove the entire axle, trailing arm, lateral links and the strut to get the thing out.

then disassemble the drum unit, ebrake cable, spindle etc etc so on and so forth....

advice please.. i think i will tackle this tomorrow (for real this time...)

i'm tired of putting this off

I really forget what we did...I'd know better if I saw it.

I'll be awake in the AM if you bother me to wake up and come help you take it apart...

You don't know about it..

Well, it tells you to remove the strut, lateral links and trailing arm, so you can remove the axle. Rear axles are a pain. We ended up cutting the links, because we were lazy when we pulled the rear diff out of the 91 Turbo.

You will need to remove the brake assembly, it's unfortunate, but not that difficult.

Do you have the actual FSM? I think I can get you that section of the FSM in the morning, if you can wait that long.

Well, we certainly figured out some ghetto ways of doing this install, but atleast they worked!

HR really doesn't have anyting on the ghetto-ness of this repair job

Maybe we'll get the video online at some point...
