Wheel Bearing Question?


One of my rear wheel bearings is gone.

The guy at the mechanics said I had to buy a new one and that I also needed a piece to go with it.

What is the correct name of the screw or bolt that he's referring to? Unfortunately I'm no longer in contact with him.

Maybe the axle nut? Off the top.of my head that is one piece that needs to replaced when changing a wheel bearing.

+1 on the axle nut. They are one time use and cheap ~$5.00. BUT if bearing was bad long long time... then could be the hub. Expensive ~$250.00.

Buy the bearing as a kit from Pelican and you'll get the bits you need.They have a diy article also.
