Can any one advise me on procedure to remove both front hubs and 98 Trooper 3.1?
Want the whole lot off including discs ecthe
Any advise would be great
First off the wheel.
Next remove the six bolts holding the hub cover.....10mm I think.
Remove the cover marking its position so to refit the same.
You should now see the end of the drive shaft and its retaining circlip.
Remove the circlip and any shims behind it....keep safe.
Now remove the six bolts holding the hub. Get somebody to push the brakes as they are around 40 foot pounds.
Withdraw the hub.
Remove the brake caliper and tie up out the way.
Now you should see a plate with lots of holes and 3 screws 120 degrees apart.
Remove the screws......they are there to lock the plate and stop it turning.
When removed you will be able to tap the plate anti clockwise and then unscrew it by hand.
Remove the plate underneath, can be awkward because of the grease and stubby fingers.
But as the assembly is free you can retrieve it after you remove the main hub.
Grasp the disc both sides and pull the hub/disc off the spindle.
Retrieve the plate and inner race of the outer bearing.
You can now work on the hub/disc assy..ie change disc ,bearings and seals.
It sounds more complicated than it is and when you start it is a logical sequence.
I'm pretty sure I haven't missed anything but if I have someone will jump in and correct
Bag 'O' Sh*te No1 2.2 petrol 2000
Bag 'O' Sh*te. No2 3.2 petrol 1998
All pretty much the same as a Fronty really..........seeing as one is a copy of the other I suppose they must be much the same........who copied who I don't know.
Remember, keep the greasy side down!
Had to withdraw the front hub as I couldn't fit the new lower ball joint without pulling the up the driveshaft .
I was terrified as I had read posts of it being very complicated and has to be taken all apart. Mine didn't, it just all came out in one lump. With my heart in my mouth I put it down thinking this can't be right I've broken it. I carried on and got the new lower ball joint in place. I had kept an eye on which way round everything was so put the assembly back and got the circlip in place.
The 4x4 seems to work so I assume I put it back ok.
Same as Frontera as they both use Isuzu parts.
