    I need to repack my bearings and i want to know how hard this is to do. My mechanic is on drugs or something and he said he needed a tool he could not find so i will try it myself. I dosent sound that hard. What I want to know is if I need a 4 prong spanner wrench on auto hubs. I know I need the hex lockout wrench though.2-3/8 if Im correct. Is it also possible that I may have a manual hub locknut on auto hubs?I hope not. Please help me I need to do this very soon....Its starting to sound bad.

    Remove the hub, remove the plastic auto locking assembly, you will see a notch, Inside this notch is a key. Take a strong magnet and remove the key, once this is done, I used a large pair of channel locks to remove the nut...
    Pretty simple stuff...
    The manual nut is different, and requires more torque, so you do need a "Special" socket to remove it.
    Good Luck.

    the white one...
    better check those bearings real good...

    If it is to the point that they're starting to sound bad, there's a good chance you have at least one bad bearing. If you see any blueing from heat or any pits or scratches on the bearing rollers, swap in a new set.
