Replacing front wheel bearing on my 03 4x4. I have the 'yota FSM, and it says to use a special tool to get the hub off the spindle, looks like a 2 jaw puller. I dont have that tool, but I have access to a press, and spent about an hour just trying to figure out how to press the damn thing apart. Anybody have any pics of how they did it? WITHOUT crushing your brake backing plate? I just dont see how to get anything under the spindle in a way that will support it enough to push the hub out of it.
Toyota wants 200 to do it, a very popular offroad shop wants 170 to do it, and this is with me taking the spindle and new bearing to them.
And I read somewhere that ill need a new ABS ring, any truth to that?
