SOURCE: need instruction manual/schematics for replacing 2005 kia rio driver side rear wheel bearing. i've got the wheel/hub/bearing off, not the inside ring to the bearing. i need to know how to replace it .

clean all the grease if there is any out of the hub, turn the hub over and using a drift and hammer strike the shell from the back edge working around the shell as you go, should not take too much to remove it but you will need a bit more than a tap with the hammer.
Hope this has helped you

SOURCE: Car jerks to left w/no warning

My opinion, not a good car. But that is a different story. It would be easiest to bring the car in for an alignment. The technician will tell you what the car needs to do the alignment. But if you want to do it yourself then you will need to inspect all the steering componants (tie-rods,struts, lower ball joint, wheel bearings, brakes, wheels, tire wear,tread pattern, and tire pressure, and lug nuts (loose or overtightened). Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 kia rio, we have replaced front

well not sure what you mean by one piece assm. becuase all front wheel drive cars require one shaft and two c/v joints on either end.

but i think i have a hunch of the problem and them most common cause for failure after a replacement is over tighting of the axle nut. what happens is it crush's the bearing and cut's it's life.

Hello, I have problem on my 2004 Kia Rio, with right rear wheel bearing, it stuck and has noise. what you can suggest to do?


Get all wheel bearings replaced.A car of that age shouldn't have wheel bearings failing so early.Try getting something aftermarket as Kia parts are not that reliable.There are heaps of complaints about this car if you google.

Does the 2004 kia rio front wheel bearings require scheduled replacement? Thank you


Not normally, they are replaced on an as as when basis.

Checked during service, if found to be loose/failing, then replaced.
Also replaced if known to be warn, usually signified by a rumbling noise from the area
of the offending wheel.
