Home Website Link Building Replacing Rotors with Tapered Roller Bearings – Eric The Car Guy

Replacing Rotors with Tapered Roller Bearings – Eric The Car Guy I thought I would try putting the website link first this time. I was very happy to make this video since I don’t often see tapered roller bearings anymore. This video shows the step by step process of removing tapered roller bearings, cleaning them, and repacking them. I have thrown in a few tips and tricks that I hope will make the job easier and given you a list of tools that you will need to get this job done. I hope you have as much fun watching this video as I did making it.

    Your brake fluid? catcher is nicer than mine. I just use an old beer can.

  7. ballard1911

    Your videos are awesome. How about some videos about understanding and adjusting women? as needed??

    Hey Eric just wanted to say thanks for the video,? I just replaced the front rotors on my Blazer and without this video I would’ve had no idea whatsoever on how to do it but with your video I was able to get it done. This is my first car so I’m still learning, just once again thanks for all the great videos.

    Nice that the rotors come with races already installed.
    they didn’t do that years ago. you had? pound the races out or buy new bearings.

    Aww. Why you hide the Raybestos name. Those are some of the best pads on the market. Should? be proud to have access to those.

    My old van had this type of bearing and I wish I knew that trick with the castle nut to get the inside bearing and grease seal out of the rotor. Took me? half an hour with some pliers to get the seal off.

    amazing how that LITTLE rubber cover makes life WAY easy when it comes time to bleed the brakes.?

  13. jupitr2

    Eric, Thanks for THIS! It was an excellent video with super camera positioning for the viewer and extremely informative. I am doing the same on my ’79 Trans Am and needed confirmation on a couple things. Sure is appreciated!?

  14. billymach4

    Good? Video. Just a few comments.
    I would have replaced the wheel bearings, and the cotter pin. I like the brake bleed trick!

  15. BenatoZ28

    Should also mention to NOT put the? bearings on your finger and spin it with the air nozzle…. I’ve heard some very interesting stories…. and they are not good.

    dear etcg,
    I’ve been watching every episode from beginning to end and I would like to say great job with the show. your videos? are very detailed and easy to understand. 😀

  17. TheMo786brutal

    Great vid? helps alot in lvl 1 at college keep them coming dude

  18. metusa666

    once again? a great video

  19. BASICS1A1

    Great video. I think that it is better to change all of the old brake hardware when doing the brakes. For instance, the cotter pin, brake pad holders and the caliper mounting bolts. With new hardware the job? goes from good to EXCELLENT. In addition, using a torque wrench is essential in tightening crucial nuts and bolts.

  20. paulbreor

    you crack me up?

  21. JRobert111111

    Hey Eric, thanks for the great videos! I’ve watched several tonight, including what’s in your toolbox. However, you never? mentioned what kind of bearing packing tool you were using. Packing the bearings is the part of a brake job I hate the most, but your tool looks awesome. More info on it please? Thanks!

    It’s “your? mother was a hamster and your father smells of elderberries”.
    More important than shop safety is correctly quoting Monty Python!

  23. curtis9188

    why? not?

  24. dav8388

    never ever, ever, ever, crimp off a brake hose! It has a inner liner. when you crimp it off like you did. You can? break that liner and cause it to act like a check valve. It will let fluid past when you press the pedal, but not let fluid back thus locking the caliper up. I am an ASE certified technician too.

    says on the tube? of lithium based grease you can , and the bloke in the shop said :S
