There’s not much to this job. In fact, if it weren’t for the face that I needed a 36mm deep well socket, this could be done completely with standard hand tools.
The only trick is that the large nut in the wheel bearing must be removed while the wheel is contacting the ground, but the weight of the car should NOT be on it. So put a jack under the car and lift until the wheel barely contacts the ground before taking that nut off.
At this point, the caliper goes back on, the wheel is put on, and the car is lowered again until the wheel barely contacts the ground. The large nut in the center of the wheel needs torqued to about 238 ft-lbs.
I did both sides in about an hour. Since I ordered the parts online for both bearings and brakes, I saved about $550 versus having a shop do this job. I do recommend paying a good shop for an alignment after a job like this – If there was damage to the bearings that made them wear out, it could have knocked other parts out of line as well.
