99 Taurus front wheel bearings
Last year I purchased new wheel bearings for my Taurus. Last week I had to change my rotors and pads to get rid of a bad shimmy when applying the brakes so I thought this would be a good time to also change the bearings.
Well, I didn't get very far! First I could not get the da$#% 3 holding bolts out of the old bearing/hub assembly so I just gave up. But I have a 99 Ford CD and was looking at it today, it appears that from what I could figure out, I need to remove the entire wheel knuckle in order to remove the bearing assembly.
Not sure when I will attempt this again but has anybody changed the front bearings and if so, what was the procedure. Note, I have a noisey wheel bearing, that is why I purchased these things last year. Now though, I find it might be the rear bearings rather than the front units. I still would like to know how to change the bearings though.
