Meanwhile – bearings

Last time in the inspection I barely passed because the rear bearings were not doing that well.

So – what else – I waited to the last possible moment to do them 😀

I used two Febest DAC387433-36KITs, which should be compatible with the Toyota 90369-38019 and 90369-38003 bearings and 04422-32010 seal kit.

The seal kit looks bit weird. Dust deflector (43246-32011 equiv.) has a unusual notch in it and I dont know which way I should position it. You can see the notch in the picture below which I loaned from Febest catalog.

Edit: the notch is for speed sensor – I’ll try to figure out if i need to cover it.

Below: Already going somewhere here. Caliper hanging, balljoints loose and disc is gone.

Little bit heat and penetrating oil helped a lot. Drive shaft nuts werent that stuck, just made sure they were coming off easily.

Driver side is done.

Both sides ready to get their bearings replaced

Following two pictures are from Mr. Reynolds family album:

Below: Orange plastic support inside the new bearing.

Below: Some hydraulics were used and the old bearings removed. 

Meanwhile, I was cleaning the rest of the suspension:

Below: The knuckles with new bearings. Both of them have something written on them but I cant make out what. The clearer one looks like 12713.35 or /21/3.35…

Guessing it could be markings from previous bearing change, I looked from wikipedia how japanese write the dates in imperial calendar format.

Format is yy/mm/dd, but the numbers here dont make sense that way. The last two digits after the dot could be kilometers like 35万km (meaning 35000km)

Anyhow, I’m going to modify the brake shields so they can be removed without taking the whole bearing assembly off. 

While googling, found out following bearings should have the same size. Doublecheck and dont trust me.
