Question about 2000 Acura TL

1 Answer

I need to replace my front wheel bearings on my Acura 3.2 TL.

I need to replace my front wheel bearings and have to take them to a shop to be pressed in but have no clue what he needs or how to get it off. I need to know what to take to the mechanic at the shop and how to put it together once I have it pressed. Please help! I'm broke and can't afford a mechanic!

You need to take them the knuckle. This is what the brake calliper, the wheel studs, the upper and lower ball joints, and the axle half shaft all connect to. Start with the axle nut. It's pretty big and might have a cotter pin through it. I say that because it's the tightest bolt and you can use the brakes to hold it from just spinning the wheel. There is one castle nut per ball joint, should have a cotter pin through them, take them off and beat the ball joint out with a hammer, don't hit the stud or you'll never get the nut back on. Two bolts on the brake calliper. once you have all that off give the end of the axle a few whacks until it's free. Don't go pulling on it or you'll separate the CV joint in the half shaft.

Front brakes engaged while driving

the problem will be in the master cylinder compensating port blocked
disc brakes do not have return valves or residual line pressure like drum brakes
if at any time the heated brake fluid is not allowed to expand back into the reservoir it expands and pushes the disc brakes harder on
catch 22 situation
dragging pads generate heat , fluid expands and presses the pads on harder = more heat =more pressure
the rotors have to be running true ( no wobbles) wheel bearings have to be correctly adjusted or replaced and the calliper body has to move freely on the mounting pins to allow for self centering action
instead of the mechanic go to an accredited brake professional shop and have a proper diagnosis and quote done
