#24 of 43 Wheel Bearing replacement
Feb 23, 2009 (5:09 pm)
I now know it's a sealed unit. Advanced Auto will, howevever, sell you a gear puller (for the hub) and you simply return it for credit when your done (Nice). The most difficult part of the replacement is cracking the 1.5" retaining nut. Thanks again for you response.

By the way, you can opt for the "Economy" Hub $75.00 or premium for around $150.00. (Sanel Auto Parts). Most places I contacted marked up the "Economy" to around $125.00. Premium up to $190.00. Good going Sanel!

I am having the same problem. Using SKF brg/hub assemblies, I have replaced both sides twice in the last year. Had a 4 wheel alignment done...tech said nothing unordinary. No brake drag. I would think that SKF would be OE supplier or at least a top line replacement...am I missing something?

I have a 2002 dodge dakota quad cab. My question is how do i take my tail light lenses off and clean them. For some reason when i bought it there was dirt caked inside the lenses and the tail lights are hard to see.

Lower the tailgate and look for two Torx-head screws on the side of the tailgate janb on the box. Remove these screws. Standing at the rear of the vehicle, pull the tail lamp assembly outwards from the body.

I'm not aware of PCMs being a general problem on any year Dakota.
What year is the truck?

Dodge dakota 2002 v8, Was running fine, took my son to the hospital where the truck set for 3 hours....5 miles from the hospital the truck shut off while stopped at a red light, 105 degrees out, while attempting to restatrt the RPM maxxed out, the fuel injectors kicked on dumping gas yet the truck didn't start...after sitting for 6 hours truck started ran 60 miles home but when entered drive shut down and began acting up again, it sat overnight and started just fine in the morning. When the truck warms up, the fuel pump kicks in the injectors start dumping but the truck does not start. and Rpm max out without the truck started.Noone in panama City, Florida that I've talked to has had this problem. Where should I start?

I replaced the crankshaft senor and the truck started, then the check engine light came on it shut off, I restarted the truck engine light still on let it idle for a while light went out, truck started several times with no problem and no codes, test drove the truck about 40 miles with no problem, left for work got less than 2 miles truck shut off while going 40mph, check engine light on but no codes show...I guess my next step is to check wiring?I don't really want to put 600.00 minto a computer if I don't need it, I'm a single parent and need my truck to get to work.
