Generation 3 Bolted-in wheel bearing extension set
This extension set will demount even the most stubborn and corroded bolted-in wheel bearings, even with the axle still in the hub.
No more hammering, cracked knuckles or time-consuming dismounting or struggle in the shop press.
The job is made directly on the vehicle in 5 – 10 minutes also when the axle is in the hub.
Bolted on wheel bearings often get stuck by corrosion in the knuckle after some years. This set can be used instead of hammering, heating or even destroying aluminum or steel knuckles.
Even more time can be saved by leaving the axle or CV-joint in place when removing the hub/bearing unit. A wheel bearing of this type can be replaced in 15 minutes, even the most stubborn once!
In some cases, the hub can, or is needed to be separated from the wheel bearing to start with the wheel bearing puller for 3 – 4 bolts will then be used to pull out the bearing housing.
Some brake shields are uneven due to drum brakes or parking brake with drums. These need a more precise press surface to avoid damaging the shield. Salty water, mixing of material and tight fittings is a huge problem for many shops. With the right tool it’s a simple job in a few minutes!
Most Subaru models need longer M12 bolts with 1.25 threads when pulling out the rear wheel bearing. The bolts are 3.9” (100 mm) long and made of a stronger material. 01-00042-010
