Need Help-P/N Front RH Driver side wheelbearing

Postby cyc0140 » Tue 11.06.2013, 09:28

Hi all
I hope someone could help me with this. Currently my driver side front wheel is vibrating and on inspection it was attributed to a worn bearing. I would deeply appreciate it if someone could advise me on the model and specification for the replacement front driver side bearing. I believe there's a inner diameter/outer diameter and bearing height. Or would appreciate it if there's anyone has experience to advice on the particular brand/model bearing to purchase.(ie SKF model etc). My Lotus is 1990 Elan Turbo SE. Thank you very much!

Hi Guys, thank you very much ! I believe I should be able to get the SKF locally.
Lotus is currently so noisy so should be able to enjoy the nice ride again after replacing : )
Thanks !

I currently suffer from the same problem.

I ordered 2x the SKF kit from ebay, as local suppliers ask more than 4 times the price! :oops: Around 90 Euro's per side :evil:
Any top tips for replacing them?

The rears were changed yesterday and it was pretty straight foreward indeed. Hope the fronts go just as well!

It is VERY important to get them pressed in square and fully otherwise they fail within a few thousand miles.
Get them pressed out at your local garage, don't try to bash them out yourself. Then, clean any corrosion off etc that might stop the new ones being fully pressed in again.
The clips can be difficult to get out....cover them in WD40 overnight.

Thanks!

I can use the press of a friendly neighbour so that helps :-)

Henk-Jan

I assume you mean the bottom balljoint?

(but it's the same for the top one, but with less chance of damage to the rubber bits)

Easiest is to get a 'fork' type splitter, and drive it between the metal bits (it WILL destroy the rubber boot, though).

I always just use a cold chisel - sometimes I catch the rubber, sometimes I don't.

ball joint seperator

these are the boots I use - direct fit and good quality.

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

Thanks!

How does the fork compare to one of these:

Or this one?

( i promise not to get this cheap one, but a more sturdy one of the same design)

The first one you link to is a good design, but only any good if you can get to both sides of the joint to operate it - difficult on the ball joints because the driveshaft is in the way!

The second type, I havent seen before, so can't comment....

.....but either way, the fork type (or a cold chisel!) is a lot cheaper, works very well and causes no damage (except possibly to the rubber boot).

A short follow up:

I ordered the universal adjustable one (first link) and after a little grinding it fitted all balljoints :-)
I greased the rubber parts with WD40 and did not damage a single one.

Then my 'friendly' garage knackered my first bearing as he pressed the inner raceway while supporting the outer one :bonk: :banghead: What an asshole!
So i went to another garage with my other bearing where I could use the press and do it my way (the correct way)

All 's well now!
