Yes....it's called rust and corrosion. You'll need to obtain a nice, large, sharp chisel and nice hammer and chisel away and the point where the hub and axle flange meet. Be careful not to chisel the axle flange. The hub/bearing are not pressed in, just difficult to remove. If you have ABS, make sure you don't damage the wire from the hub. Disconnect it from the bearing assembly by pushing down on the top of the spring clip and pulling it out, carefully. The connector will come out of the hub with gentle pulling. You will need alot of patience too when chiseling the bearing out. Use lots of "PB Blaster" penetrating oil as well (available at any auto parts store). Do NOT use WD-40, it sucks and is mostly water. PB Blaster comes in a white spray can with a yellow top. Ask for it by name. Good luck to u.

The hub assembly you are removing is going to be destroyed by removing it. On my 1996 grand voyager I took a 24" length of 3/4" sturdy pipe and drove it out from behind. Center the pipe on the wheel speed pulse wheel. This will remove the backing plate also.

I have a replacement rear bumper/fender (the plastic shell) for my '93 190e 2.0, but its different to the original - the right dimensions, but its one piece that fits right around from one wheel arch to the other. Problem is there;s 3 pieces to the original - main piece across the back (easily removed) and smaller sections just behind the wheels on each side. The brackets on the new shell are right where these two are sitting. So what I'm stuck with is, how to get these off safely, and, if I d

Hi I have a 1995 Dodge Stratus that I have a problem with the right rear wheel getting hot and omitting a strong burning odour after driving it for a few miles. I took it to a mechanic and he felt it was my emergency brake sticking, why he thought this to be the solution as after he applied the emergency brake on & off the right wheel would not turn freely with the emergency brake off it would drag a bit when turned. After he adjusted it, it seemed to correct the problem. But after I had been d

The left rear brake caliper on my 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII doesn't get as much pressure as the other 3 wheels which makes the car pull to the right when you put on the brakes.I have replaced the rotors, pads, calipers and hoses on all 4 wheels but still have the problem. Is there a pressure equalizer valve & if so where is it. This problem started suddenly. Brakes worked fine one day and started pulling right the next. If I hit the brakes hard it doesn't do it as bad as when I brake lightly. I di

2005 Hyundai Accent has the right rear wheel locked up. All other wheels appear to rotate properly on movement of the car but the right rear does not move at all. This condition was noted on start-up Tuesday and was not noted when the car was driven on the weekend. We did have the tires replaced last week but I would expect that any problems with the installation would have shown up during the weekend drive.


The first thing I would inspect is the brake Caliper. It may be locked down. If this is the case you may have to have it towed to have i ... 2005 Hyundai Accent

I changed the rear brakes in my 1999 cavalier, and since, every time I push the brakes, the ABS engages all the time, so I disconnected it to see if it is the ABS, but the problem remained: that is, when I push the brakes (without the ABS), the rear wheels stop very hard, sometimes one of them does and the car slides to the right or to the left. I tried several times to adjust (loosen) the rear brakes, but 2 days later, the problem returns back. I took it to the mechanic: after he checked it, h

The rear of my Mazda 3 was making noise, so I narrowed the problem to the rear wheel bearings. After removing my Mazda's rear bearing hub assembly, I tried to carefully remove the plastic cover to expose the bearings. In the end the cover broke apart instead of pulling out. I went ahead and added more grease to the bearings, which fixed the noise, but for now I have used silicone to keep the cover in place. I have looked all over the internet and haven't been able to find a replacement to the c
