1998 Jaguar XJ8 Question: How to replace front wheel bearing
This is a hub style bearing. I strongly suggest you get a repair manual for this vehicle if your going to be doing your own work. You can get an online subscription to excellent information here: http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online or http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals - Bret Bodas
most people will tell you that you need a special tool to remove the abs ring, in reality you can knock it undone with a blunt chisel and a hammer , but this usually braks the part. a new abs ring is about ten pounds to buy, o you can afford to destroy a lot of them until it is worth the 150 pounds for the special tool !! also, heating up the ring can help with undoing it.. the torque to tighten these things is about 300nm - Visitor
whats the best way to remove & replace rear wheel bearings?
I have seen in diagrams that you need all these special tools is this correct or can you do it with tools that are normally in your tool box
