MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Front wheel bearings serviceable or does the entire hub have to come off

Wondering if my S430 has the serviceableremovable front wheel bearings or if it requires removing the entire hub and have them pressed out with a shop press With that telltale dust cap on the hub it would appear they are the former but just wanted to confirm. Thanks in advance.

You have to remove the caliper and caliper bracket then the hub as noted above. After removing the grease seal you can pull the inner bearing. Youd want to pull the hub anyway otherwise you cannot clean out the old grease and inspect the races. And by the way you only need a press (manual or hydraulic) to swap the races not the bearings themselves. Adjusting them after cleaning and repacking is really

OK the spec calls for 0.01-0.02mm end-play. That is 0.0004-0.0008. I dont know about you guys but my professional-level dial indicators are not that precise When I do mine I will use the method used on the auto assembly lines for many years. The idea on a front wheel bearing is to get as close to zero preload and zero end play as possible. The easiest and most precise way that I know of is to snug

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Anyone tried pressing the bearings out and in on front hubs

I like to save money where I can and i noticed that front wheel bearings are only 15set where as replacement hubs with bearings run about 130. I dont need the hubs (none of us really do) and I have a press but not the tools. It looks straightforward and I can make up the bearing fitments for the press on a lathe. Has anyone tried this Its tempting. I would save some bucks. Both are way cheaper than a shop.

The aftermarket has many cheap suppliers whose manufacturing prowess is inversely proportional

Thanks for the tips. I am confident enough now to give it a go. I bought the URO kits which were the least expensive but came with caliper bolts as well. Maybe these are the cheap ones I am being warned about Link bearings The Rein kit has Koyo bearings and the URO does not specify. I am not interested in trouble from poorly made parts.

Schweinhund Im curious how many miles on your machine and what lead you to believe its time for the bearings to be replaced Would the rears need to be replaced at about the same time And Im assuming the rears would be far more difficult as the axles would need to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments. Mike K.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Replace Front Wheel Bearings ML320

MY 2001 ML320. Has anyone changed the front wheel bearings Is this a DIY job I thought it was the brake pads wearing on the rotor but I removed the caliper and spun the rotor and heard and felt a faint thump thump thump from the rotor area. The bearing only costs 65.00 so I tought Id give it a whirl.... Thanks in advance Doug

Finally changed the front right wheel bearing myself. Ended up using an on-car hubbearing extractorinstaller as I dont have time to take a day off to go to a machine shop and none are open on weekends. No air tools either but would have been nice. The name of the tool is the OTC hub Grappler. Worked like a charm. Removing axle nut was a breeze with a 40 breaker bar. The self-locking nuts for the tie

So here is the write up with pics on the left rear bearing using the hub Grappler on-car bearinghub extractor. This is on a 2001 ML320. Attempt this at your own risk. I make no guarantees but I basically followed the mercedes WIS document. 1. Jack up car with jack stands and chock the wheels. Safety first 2. Remove wheel. Disconnect speed sensor and brake wear indicator bracket. 3. Remove caliper.

Replaced front wheel bearing on 1998 ML320 this last weekend. I have 210K miles on it and it was really starting to make some noise. Pressed out bearing and pressed new one in without taking hub off of vehicle. Still had to take loose upper ball joint and tie rod in order to pull axle all the way out of the hub. Cost was the bearing which was 65 and approx 150 worth of tools I picked up from harbor

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 My turn to mess up.. front hub damaged

About 2 years ago got the W210 - and there was a rhythmic noise - thought it was the bearings because it changed with cornering - so changed the front Left wheel bearings. I used a hardened steel drift to drive out the races - and they sure came out.. and I mushed the edges of the hub where the race sits (so the new race could not sit flat). I spent some time cleaning and grinding up the bumps and

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Front bearing freeplay

Ive read through the post on front bearing replacement etc. but I cannot really find what Im looking for. What Im trying to find out is whether there is any rule of thumb method to determine whether the front wheel bearings on my car has too much freeplay. If I lift the car and grab the wheel top & bottom I can see the rim (where it meets the tire) move about 18 to 316 of an inch between push and pull.

inch between push and pull. Same if I grab the wheel on the sides. I can actually hear a sound as the hub move from one side to the other. To my mind that is too loose and there should be no visible movement or sound from the hub. But what confuses me is that is that I see the same amount of movement on both the E320 and the SLK320. Of course the mileage is about the same (112K and 122K). Does mercedes

Im new to the mercedes world but not to automotive repair. Before I start work on any car I own the first investment I make is to buy a factory service manual.

So I ordered the Star DVD from mercedesmanuals.com over three weeks ago (BAD IDEA) never got it and im out

Hey All Ive been trying to track down front wheel bearings for my 2005 MB Vito 111 CDi (type w639).

Ive been putting together a series of technical articles for the W210 and thought I would preview a excerpt from one here. Looking for input. An often unlooked part of most cars are the wheel bearings. The bearings support the full weight of the car both while stationary and under load. As the mileage increases on the car heat and lack of lubrication can cause the bearings to wear and possibly fail.

Hi Not Handed means they can fit either side most types of bearings are not handed. Just buy a trolley jack if you plan on doing a bit to the van it will come in very usefull. You want to jack the van up but leave the wheel on to check the bearing if you dont you will find it impossible to spin the hub to listen to the bearing and you wont be able to feel for any play. You cant physicaly see the bearing till you remove it and you wont be able to see if there is anything wrong with it unless it has totaly destroyed itself (you would know if that was the case) Dont forget to knock the outer ring back on the nut where it has been knocked in before you try to take it off this is how its secured in place after torqueing up. Thats not a bad price for the bearing this is the cheapest i could find mercedes VITO 96-03 front WHEEL bearing OE QUALITY eBay UK Cheers Martin

I think I posted this in the wrong forum so here we go again. Has anyone here ever replaced a front wheel wheel hub assembly. I have a 1996 E300D and the front passenger wheel hub bearing is shot any tips on how to change this or should I take it to a dealer.

If you have these tools you can do wheel hub assembly. I forgot you must also have knowledge of doing that.

Well heres hoping someone can help I have tried searching the forum but with no luck. My offside front wheel bearing needs replacing and was wondering if anyone has done it and could provide some advice on how to do it Thanks in advance

Its a complete pressed and cold formed head on the inside of the bearing keeping the axle in the bearing.

However there is a service time to replace a complete hub. Now we know why. Yup it turns out the only solution is a complete hub from mercedes

Having today just finished removal resurface and installation of my front rotors Ive been working on a theory as to why the front G bearings are prone to wear out.

The G axle design
