Default Repack Wheel Bearings

I have read a lot of people replacing there wheel bearings, and I am replacing the rotors on my 94 lx and had to remove the bearing so I figure I might as well clean the bearing out and regrease them. I have no reason to believe that they are bad. Does anyone see a problem with this?

Well if they have never been replaced, i would replace them. No sense in doing a job 2x. If they have been replaced in the car's life i would not change them.

Also, spin the bearings. Do they make anykind of friction noise? If they do no re-packing of grease will help.

They are sealed bearings you can't re-pack them.

This is absolutely true. You can NOT repack them.

Yup, they're not service-able. You'd have to get a new set.

I'm sorry but you guys are incorrect. You can pop the inner races out of a sealed bearing, clean and regrease the bearings and pop the inner races back in. The cage inside the bearing is plastic and can flex. This allows the races to be popped out without damaging anything. It's tricky, and you CAN damage the bearing assembly when doing this.

Though, there is no reason to do this. Since it's a sealed bearing, if the bearing is good, so is the grease. The only time this would be considered practical is if you are separating the hub for some reason and the inner race comes out with the hub. You can put the bearing back together without a problem assuming the bearing cage is still plyable. Other than that, I'd just leave the bearing alone.

true. as long as the grease hasn't become contaminated it can just be reassembled and reinstalled. care must be taken with the ball and cage assemblies. the cages are flexible but if too much force is used and they break the bearing is toast. also if the inboard set and outboard set were to be mismatched upon reassembly it could ruin the pre-load and destroy the bearing.
