TORQUE FOR FRONT WHEEL BEARING

2004 Kia Spectra

2004 Kia Spectra

I cannot get the rotor unseized with pb blaster or hitting with 10# sledge hammer. Would like to remove the wheel bearing but do not know how much torque is required when replacing. Can you please help?

To remove the rotor, remove the two screws and pull, to do the hub bearing remove the knuckle and press, there is a tool, but you can use a hammer and correct size drivers to punch out the hub, then flip it over and remove the c clip and press the beaing off. or take the hub to a machine shop and pay the press chage, this is the best way to go!

The other thing is if you have less than 100,000 miles, it should be covered at Kia!
