MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 W208 Front Wheel Bearing Replacement DIY

Months ago I said I would post this - so here it is First and foremost -- This should be titled What I did when I replaced my front wheel bearing as I do not even pretend to have enough experience to tell you what to do. I looked up how to do this took some pictures along the way and thought I would share with you. I didnt even do everything you are supposed to because I hated doing this. Thanks to

For the outer dustcap usually a big pair of chanel locks will do the job. Youll need them to adjust the lock nut anyway. My guess is you got it cocked in there with the hammer and thats why u were killing yourself. As for the inner seal a seal puller is the way to go but since you were swapping the bearings out anyway there is another way. After you remove the outer bearing just spin the lock nut back

Instead of changing the bearings and races etc.. Wouldnt it be a lot easier to just changed the wheel hub assembly itself Yes it costs a lot more. But it seems like the money would be worth it not to go through all the pain and struggle All you would have to do is shove MB grease in there and you are all set. It would make the job so much easier instead of trying to pack and drive out bearings etc..

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 Front Wheel Bearing replacement advice needed

Hi everyone Im new to this and new to Mercs and could do with a little help. I have recently bought a 2007 clk 220cdi. I am Gunna have a bash at the front at the front wheel bearings on the weekend and Im anticipating it being a bit of a pain as they are making a right racket at th moment and even making braking jerky. I understand that Mercs have run-off spindles which will be nice as Im used to BMWs

I did this on my 04 with no drama. I have a cheap press which I used to get the race out of the hub. Im sure you could pound it out if you have to. As far as tightening up the bearing I again bought an inexpensive gauge from Harbor Freight. This is a simple DIYr

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 how to replace wheel hub front. lug nut stripped

my front driver side lug holes are stripped on the my clk 430. i was told i need to replace the entire hub. i found a place online that sells them with the wheel bearing. can someone help me out on how to replace. is it hard will i need an alignment afterwards or should i take it to a shop to replace. it seems pretty straight forward but wanted to ask the experts on the board for guidance. thanks hopefully

Samsongee please click user cp and edit details to add your VEHICLE and LOCATION to your profile as it is useful information when youre seeking assistance. It is not terribly difficult. You have to remove the caliper and rotor and then you remove the dust cap and loosen the clamp bolt on the axle nut. Then you remove the axle nut and pull the hub off. If the new one has bearings I would still repack

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Front Wheel Bearings

What are the symptoms of worn front wheel bearings Is there just some extra noise while driving Or does the steering suspension feel different Any input

Is there a special tool required to get the wheel bearing cap off It looks like the cap goes over the hub whereas most other wheel bearing caps fit inside the hub. Most other wheel bearing caps come off easily when you apply a proper beating - my clk320 wheel bearing caps dont seem to want to come off.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Help Front Hub stuck

Went to put on the front hub after repackingreplacing the bearings it seated then I decided to pull it back off to add a little more grease inside the hub between the races. I unseated the hub and now it is stuck wont go all the way on wont come off. Should I try yanking it off or gently pounding it back on

Did you manage to get the hub off without using a puller Im surprised if you did. Anyway dont bang it on now if it is jammed. Get it off and see what the problem was before you try again. The WIS shows a puller and an installer are normally required. Did you check the bearing play (end float) I have some details & drawings of the hub and bearing if you are stuck.

Well didnt have to hit that hard. just paranoid about damaging racesbearingsor spindle. looks like a few blemishes on the race but I could feel nothing. did the brakes on both sides but have to wait for another rear seal and a new grease cap (put a hole in it with a screwdriver Primitive Pete).

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 W208 Front Wheel Bearing - Adjust or replace

Hi all I have noticed a thumpclunk noise at low speed when turning full lock to the right. The noise seems to come from the front left wheel (on a slippery surface like a painted multistorey car park it seems to judderhop). I lifted the front end today and checked the movement on the wheel. There is some movement but not excessive which I think indicates the wheel bearings are either loose or on their

The WIS lists the following tools for the job 2 extractors 2 installers

I too experianced this cluncking noise on tight slow turns best way to describe it is its like your sliding on marbles and a whine that sounds like brake squel but doesnt change when apply the brakes.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 front wheel bearing kit

I took my car in for an oil change and had them check out my wheel bearings due to a annoying humminghelecotper noise comming from my front wheels... .I was told my bearings are worn and need replacing..... 850 was the quote....... i ordered the kit instead and was wondering if anyone had a DIY guide to replace the wheel bearings.......anyone ever do this repair... what tools will i need any help would be great thanks

After you pull the wheel off you pullpop the hub cap (cap in the center of the rotor) off. There will be grease packed in there. Slacken the hexagon socket head screw and remove the large clamping nut (the clamping nut has one semicircle with two flat edges next two it and a screw on the opposite end of the semicircle). (I cant remember if I had to loosen the rotor or not but if you do there is one

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Repacking Wheel Bearings on 2002 CLK320

I took my car in for a full diagnostic because cylinder 3 has been misfiring. They swapped my coil pack around to another area hoping the misfire would follow but it stayed at cylinder 3. They recommended a full ignition service replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires (estimated 820tax). Thats unreasonable for me so Ive ordered these parts and will be attempting to DIY with some good tutorials

and nut. Preload loosen adjust bearing secure with allen screw reinstall dust cap and you are through. The biggest trick is the adjustment. MB specifies a .01-.02 mm runout and you need a dial gauge and magnetic mount for that. Check the 210 forum help stickies re adjustment. You can get a decent dial gauge and magnetic mount at HF for under 50. Here is the forum sticky I mentioned httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsw210...free-play.html

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Stripped hub...HELP

I tried to install a mercedes dealer wheel lock and felt some resistance even with a little bit of lube. Took it out and saw the first 3 threads are stripped with some shavings...DAMN they gave me the wrong locks So I took it that the threading on the hub is messed up as well. Now Im riding with 4 good bolts and one shortie just hanging on. Anyone know how to remedy this Is there a way I can re-thread the stripped hole Around how much would a new hub cost at the dealer

Your best bet really is to replace the hub if its truly stripped. On a clk320 the hubs are just W202 parts so they shouldnt be more than 120 each (front or rear). On a clk55 the rear hubs are R129 (SL) parts and are quite a bit more costly. Replacing the hubs is a little bit involved (it requires removing the bearings and repacking them). If youve not repacked wheel or hub bearings before I suggest you dont learn on your clk and leave it to a mechanic. -s-

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 Wheel bearing or Glycol in the trans Im losing sleep.

Until I read the horrer stories about Valeo radiators leaking glycol into the trans I was certain my symptons were related to a noisy right rear wheel bearing. Know I am scared it could be much worse. What do you think 2004 clk55 Why it is similar to Glycol problem - Under light acceleration or coasting between 20 and 50 mph I hear a droning sound from what appears to be the rear end. Sounds similar

I think that you have correctly eliminated (a) engine (b) transmission. So what else is spinning while you are moving (c) prop shaft - flex disc OK (d) differential - any sign of oil loss (e) half-shafts (f) wheel hubs (c) (d) (e) would be affected by loading which you say is not present. front wheel bearings generally make more noise while turning. Im not sure what affects the rear wheel bearings noise ....

I bought the mercedes wheel bearing kit from Pelican parts for 50. It comes with inner and outer bearings races self locking nut dust cap grease and radial seal ring. This gave me a great excuse to buy a press I have always wanted. 12 ton at Harbor Freight for 129. -) The job was straightforward. The inner race had significant discoloration but the bearings were still intact. Who knows how long they

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Front left wheel loose...

2001 clk 430... The front left wheel is slightly loose - has a tiny bit of play when up on a lift. I thought I needed an alignment until it was on the lift and I found the wheel had some play in it. Is this a simple bearing swap out or is it the hub or knuckle Im pretty much planning on doing it myselft unless I hear that its too much of a hassle for a back yard mechanic. Any thoughts advice on this

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Wheel Hub Replacement Question

So I ran over a curb this weekend and ended up with two flat tires I actually had two spares in my car one for my car and one for an E500. When I went to the tire shop to have new tires put on they said I needed to replace the wheel hub on the front drivers side. That is the one I put the E500 spare on which the lug nuts were too long for. Is replacing the wheel hub easy to do I am pretty savy when

Quote Originally Posted by bobbyjo9 I think Keyhole was thinking of the rear. The front hub needs no special tools to remove.

The bearing should come out easily but I would be surprised if the hub does. You might be right of course I took my info from the WIS that suggests that a puller is needed. See below

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Front End Grinding Noise

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 Feel guilty for asking.... wheel bearing

Good evening everyone. I feel bad that I only ask questions - still learning mercedes but if anyone needs help with old chevy trucks... dont hesitate Anywho I have a 2007 clk 350 just 50000 miles. Noticed last week twice when making a slow right turn a squeak squeak... didnt think much of it as it was just a couple squeaks. Today any movement of the wheel towards the passenger side there is a squeak

My right front wheel bearing was bad at 64k. It did not squeak it was more of a light grinding sound which would come and go but was noticeable making left hand turns. Sometimes if I leaned on it hard the sound would last going straight for several minutes. I too had no noticeable play in the hub but the inner bearing showed signs of being overheated. The replacement kit as around 60 at Autohauz which

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 Unable to remove front caliper

Need some helpguidance here. Im trying to replace my front brake pads on my 06 clk350 and I cannot get the passenger side off. Ive read the DIY instructions (W209 clk Maintenance Repair PPI Index) and just cannot get it off the rotor. I know some will say I dont need to but I will be changing the rotors later this year and want to make sure I do it correctly. I removed the 2 18mm bolts which I thought

Dont touch the bearings The rotor is just stuck to the hub due to rust. Spray around the front and back of the rotor where it meets the hub with a penetrating oil. Then use a hammer and a wood block to persuade it to come loose as shown in the diagrams below then give it a few good whacks from behind. You might consider lightly coating the back of the new rotors with high-temp grease to make the next change easier.

ABS sensor bracket bolts are torx 40 and like to strip and break. Rusting tie-rods will have the hex key slot swollen and rusted. Upper control arm bolt is a 2 man job.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Wheel has movement after new wheel bearings and ball joints

I replaced the front ball joints on both sides about a month ago and theyre great but just replaced passenger wheel bearing and there is still movement. Took it to mercedes and they said that I needed a new one although I never mentioned that I changed it. What could still be causing this

When all else fails start over. Put the tires back to their location before the rotation. If the problem changes Id suspect a rimtire problem. If no change then chances are its in the front end. Are you sure you did the bearing correctly When you say the wheel has movement are you saying the wheel has excessive play on the hub

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Front end vibration

I know this topic has been endlessly covered but here is my dilemma Took my car in for an oil change at a local Indy. He told me there was some play in the front wheel bearings and they needed to be adjusted tightened. He did so for 30. I noticed the steering was a little crisper afterwards but as soon as I got on the highway the front end of the car started to vibrate enough so to shake the steering

hub-centric spacers are applicable if you have after-market rims - not the stock rims although the tire shops will try to sell them to you either way. Vibration in the steering wheel can be a few things 1) Tire balancing is probably the most common. 2) bad tire(s) 3) warped brake rotors (if vibration startsstops when pressing on the brake) Vibration throughout the car can be a few other things 1) all

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Horrible tire wear

Hello Around 3500 miles ago I put new Falken tires on the front of me 430. The tires are basically worn out around the outside and will need to be replaced in the next month or two. Are there any adjustments that can be made to the front end so the tires wear evenly and not just around the outside Also what kind of tires do you find get the most miles before having to be replaced Thanks Russell

There is a mercedes alignment and a regular allignment. With the true mercedes alignment they put some weight hanging off the rear to preload the rear shocks. Supposedly it makes a difference when they take the measurements. There also is a MB kit to make the rear fully adjustable. My tire guy wont even do a MB and they have a full Hunter setup. The cost at a dealer is about 159 which is very expensive

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 W209 AMG 55 Opinions

Hello all My last mercedes was a W209 270 CDi a few years ago. I liked the car a lot and Im now thinking about going back to a clk only this time a 55. Id like to hear some feedback from owners of W209 55s in order to get a feel for the ownership experience. I know the clk package overall is very good however I have read quite a few mixed reviews of the 5.5 AMG. One the one hand Ive read the AMG is

keep me company. The car handles extremely well at high speeds and on windy roads. Now for the cons. The car burns consumes oil at high speeds. I ofter drive 800 miles between 2 cities I frequent and if I drive over 100 MPH consistently I will consume around 2 litres under 80 MPH and little to no oil is consumed. Ive confirmed with both the dealer and my current mechanic (ex race car driver for mercedes)

Heres the WIS docs on removing the bearings httpbenzbits.comw209frontwheelhub.pdf When adjusting the proper wheel bearing play do so with the brakes installed (rotor caliper pads). you should have between 0.01 and 0.02mm of lateral play on the hub. There is a specific tool for measuring this. Without the tool the rule of thump is to rotate the hub while gently tightening the bolt until you feel a change
