How to change front hub assembly on 05 mustang


Remove tire/wheel. (5 nuts)
Seperate the brake pads just a little; pry apart with a screw driver. Easier to remove and replace later.
Remove caliper/brake assembly (2 bolts). Do NOT remove brake line.
Remove brake rotor (there may be a retainer clip or two that needs to be removed and discarded.
Remove black center cap (after reading warning on the cap).
Remove large spindle nut.
Slide bearing/hub assembly off the spindle. (If stuck, you may have to tap it with a hammer. It's a straight smooth shaft.

Reassemble in reverse order.
Tighten the nut to the correct torque spec. I don't know what it is, but it's pretty high... 200ft-lbs? The torque is important because it sets the preload on the bearing balls and races. Too low or torque will cause early bearing failure.

Bearing/hub looks like this:

Hi,welcome to fixya.


The rear wheel bearings are not adjustable. If the bearings make noise or become loose, they must be replaced.

  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Remove the anti-lock sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
  5. Remove the brake drum retainer and the brake drum.

I need to remove the front brake rotors from my 94 Isuzu trooper to either turn or replace them. Is this a complex project requiring special tools to remove or re-install due to the auto 4wd hubs? I have...


No, but I would replace the rotors. Turning them usually winds up getting them warped as soon as they heat up and/or you hit a puddle of water..also, you will need a torque wrench and standard automotive tools, Jack and stands and a vice..

1 Place the Transfer shift in the 2H position.
Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely on jackstands.
2 Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
3 Loosen the hub to rotor retainer bolts.
4 Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts and carefully remove the caliper (along with the brake pads) from the rotor. Do not disconnect the brake line. 5 Secure the caliper out of the way with the flexible line still connected.

Once the hub/rotor is removed from the vehicle the wheel bearings may be cleaned and repacked or the bearings and races may be replaced. For more information, please refer to the wheel bearing procedures in General Information & Maintenance of this manual.

6 Remove the hub nut using hub wrench J-29020-A or equivalent.
7 Remove the hub cap assembly retainer bolts.
8 Remove the spindle nut, washers, and other components. Remove the hub/rotor, being careful not to drop the outer wheel bearings. As the hub/rotor is pulled forward, the outer wheel bearings will often fall forward.
9 Once the hub/rotor is removed, remove the retainer bolts securing the rotor and hub together. Inspect the hub and replace if needed.

To install:
1 With the rotor secured in a vise, attach the wheel hub to the rotor using the retainer bolts. Tighten the bolts to 47-58 ft. lbs. (61-75 Nm). Apply 2.12 oz. (60 gm) of grease to the hub before installing.
2 Carefully install the wheel hub/rotor over the spindle.
3 Install the bearings washers and other components. 4 Position the lock washer so the hub cap assembly bolt holes line up properly.
5 Install the spindle washer and nut and secure using hub wrench J-29020-A or equivalent. Preload the bearing to 3.31 lbs. (1.5 kg).
6 Install the inner cam and any shims. Install the hub cap assembly and secure in place with retainer bolts. 7 Tighten grade M8 bolts to 17-22 ft. lbs. (22-29 Nm), tighten grade M10 bolts to 40-47 ft. lbs. (52-61 Nm).
8 Install the brake caliper.
9 Install the tire and wheel assembly.
10 Remove the supports and carefully lower the vehicle.
