How to Replace Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly on a 2000 Ford Taurus
(Guaranteed to Work . . . By Experience)

The following procedure is for a Ford Taurus (VIN S), with rear drum brakes and ABS.

1. Loosen wheel lug nuts, raise rear of vehicle, and support securely on jack stands. Block front wheels and remove rear wheels.

2. Remove brake drum (parking brake must be off).

3. Remove and clean ABS Sensor (Torx E8) with a spritzled rag.

4. Remove grease cap from hub.

5. Remove and discard hub retaining nut (36 mm). This is a compound nut, comprised of several nuts inside a metal cage. Use a 36 mm axle nut socket (e.g., OEM 25206). Many auto parts stores will lend you this socket. A 1/2-inch drive air impact wrench or breaker bar is necessary to remove the nut.

6. Remove wheel bearing/hub assembly from spindle. It easily comes off by hand.

7. Install new Timken Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly, for Drum Brakes and ABS (Part No. 512162). Tighten new axle spindle nut (Dorman 05114) 221 lb.-ft., replace grease cap, and button everything up.

Front bearing (how I do it)


Loosen hub nut
Jack up and support car
Remove wheel
Pop tie rod end loose (small pitman arm remover)
Pop ball joint loose (large pitman arm remover)
Pry axle loose from tranny
Pull hub and axle out as one piece being careful to support the CV joit
Put hub in vise with axle down
Holding onto axle and with the hub nut protecting the end of the axle threads hammer the axle out
Remove three bolts holding in bearing nut
Take bearing assembly out

Install in reverse order
