As the title implies, I think it's time to do a hub assemble wheel bearing replacement. This job seems to require more brawn than brains (no electronics or tuning) so I think I'm going to attempt this myself. But, before I get started, I would like to know if anyone can give me a list of the tools I will need. I know the brakes must come off so I really need to know those and the socket that fits in between the hub hole to loosen the three bolts that hold on the hub. Also, if anyone knows the proper torque specs that would be a plus too. Lastly, I understand there is a cord (maybe an abs sensor), is that just a simple plug and unplug deal or is there more to it.
I really want to learn how to work on this car. Living on a large farm, I have taken farm equipment apart and atv fixes like brakes, bearings, and cv type replacement but for some reason I'm terrified to even change the oil in my car. I'm ready to now step up. Thanks for any comments.
