    I have an 08 dbl cab 4x4 with 56k mils and the wheel bearing went out the other day. I thought it was a little premature but no big deal. Just pop off the wheel, brake caliper, hub, and the bearing should be no problem. How wrong could I have been. After trying to beat and pry the bearing from the hub I decided to take the assembly to a garage. The mechanic said it had to be machine pressed out then the new one had to be pressed back on. So he did it and charged $65 no big deal. I get the bearing back home and I forgot to take the bolts with me so my truck is jacked up in the with the whole bearing assembly off until I can get the bearing pressed out about an inch, put the bolts in and press it back. I am so mad for being so stupid. But I have learned a few things today. 1) When working on a Toyota things are not always as simple when working on a domestic, 2) Always check this site before working on your Tacoma, and 3) Sometimes it's easier to admit defeat and take it to someone before you make a stupid mistake and break something. By the way I am so mad :confused:

    looks like a good deal. Iwas going to buy the bearing and hub but the hub is a dealer only item and they couldn't get one in time.

    Aren't those in the the link the bearing and hub? and you'd just unbolt the old hub and bolt that back on?

    Shouldn't this be covered under the 5/60000 powertrain warranty?

    I have 100k drivetrain warranty good for 14k more miles or good until jan 2012 but not thinkin those are part of what the dealer would consider drivetrain since I have a prerunner.

    Yeah, but the part that your lugs are on, that goes on the outside of the bearing (not sure the proper name) has to be pressed on and off. Which was the most aggravating part of the whole thing. But I have it all back together now and it's all good. Thank God. And I wish I knew it may be covered under the drivetrain warranty I sure would have called. Probally to late now since I already worked on it myself.

    Oh, OK, the pic in the link is the bearing. Thought maybe those were bearing already pressed into the part that bolts to truck. Haven't had mine apart that far....so far.

    Thanks.

    What a pia this has become. I had to buy a torque wrench & the 36mm socket. Got home this morning, took the wheel off to do the replacement. I couldn't get the caliper bolts to break free. I tried everything. It is going to need an airgun to break free. I do not have those tools. I found a shop nearby that will do it for $170. I'm supplying the parts. I returned the torque wrench I bought this morning. I wasted a few hours of my day. :(

    I was in the same boat a few weeks ago but my mechanic wanted $480. I got him to press the old bearing out and the new bearing in for $70. And I wasted a full day.

    Congrats, you made it about 20k longer than I did on my driver side bearing :(
