I need to change my front brakes and rotors and hub bearings but im not sure how to do the bearings. Is this difficult? also can i changed the pads and rotors without doing the bearings at the same time?

I have a "91 Ford Ranger. Two years ago, I bought a new shift knob (that I really like) and have been unable to put it on. I have asked a couple people who work on cars, gone to 2-3 mech shops and everyone says that it can't be screwed off-it was put on mechanically. Huh? And they say they don't have experience with that. The Ford Dealers are way away from me-is that my only recourse? Or does someone finally have an answer-at least what to tell the mechanic. Merry Christmas-(and may God and anybody else)bless you if you can tell me how to do this stupid thing-after two freakin' years!

Two issues on my Heat and AC control.
1)Vent direction control feature does not provide consistent control when choosing between floor/dash vents. Lower vents will shut off intermittently. Upper vents will close vents active at all I can tell. I cannot identify a pattern. I have seen other forums list RPM (vacumn ?) as factor. I will idle vehicle and see if anything similar happens.

2) Even with temp on max heat, when I move vent control to both upper/lower vents, I can hear the compressor activate, and with a 4cyl, you notice the compressor engaging as well.

Is this a vacumn problem or a stuck/warped door problem ?

Thank you.
