How do I change Terrano wheel bearings?? What part no's?

Unread post by nifty nev » April 14th, 2014, 8:51 pm

1992 Terrano.
Went for a wheel align and they cant do it because the bearings are well worn. Looking for info on how to change them myself. Also bearing numbers so I can find some before I have a go at changing them. Never changed a wheel bearing in my life, but will tackle anything. Any special tools I need and torque settings would be handy please. Many thanks

Nev,

You will need the following tools;

Wheel Bearing Lock Nut Socket:

1/2" Torque Wrench capable of 98Nm
Circlip Pliers
Usual array of sockets, screwdrivers etc
A 450gm cartridge of Castrol Spheerol HTB2
A set of pull-type scales (like the ones you weigh fish with)
- bit of a knack to using these to get accurate measurements, you need to pull as gently and smoothly as possible until the hub starts turning, and note that measurement. If you "yank" at it you will end up with a much higher peak measurement. I got ahold of a set of Shimano scales from the local tackle shop that have a little slider that indicates the last measurement, but they were $70!

Cone Bearing Grease Packer:

The wheel bearing kits:

And you will need a brass punch to hammer the old bearing races out (has to be brass so you don't damage the hub assembly or other components).

Here's the Nissan FSM for the Front Axle section.

I tackled this back in November so if you have any queries give me a yell and I'll do my best to help out.
