Asked by Jul 16, 2013 at 10:49 AM about the 2002 Nissan Patrol

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Nissan Patrol 4.8 petrol engine (automatic drive) 230,000klms on the clock, and needs the wheel bearings replaced as there is movement in the front wheel. I note the service manual Haynes whilst makes mention of the need to check the wheel bearing doesn't show how to take the hub apart to get at the bearing---------------------------------most workshop's will only say its complicated therefore why don't you book it in for a day-----------On a disability pension I don't think so. does anyone know how to do this task???

1 Answer

If it is a hub assembly you have to replace the whole unit. Hub bearing assemblies are not serviceable. The unit is usually held on to the spindle by 4 bolts. You will have to remove the caliper, mount, and rotor to make changing the hub assembly easier.
