    Hello I need to replace the rear bearings on my 1993 Elantra, I have jacked
    the car up and it is on jack stands now . I can't seem to get the Drums off
    to get to the bearings Are they just tight like that ?, or do I just loosen
    the main nut that holds the drum and bearings in ?
    also the main nut for the tightening procedure , is it a 1/4 turn after
    finger tight, how do I know how much torque?
    any help

  2. Release the emergency brake. The drums will come off much easier.

    You need to take off the main 30mm nut.

    The official service procedure is to replace the nuts. I don't recall the
    torque spec. offhand and the computer I'm using doesn't like webtech, but
    you can try at Select "Service Information" and "Web
    Tech." Enter the year and model of your vehicle and select "shop" for
    shop manual. You should be able to get all the info you need there
    (provided you're running Exploder and not using a Mac).

    I'm at work today and looked up the torque. It's 108-145 foot pounds. The
    nut is a self-locking nut.

    thanks for advice up to this point
    If the nut itself is self Locking, would it be a good idea to just get a new
    one or just re-use the old one?
    would you know the price of one, I guess i would have to purchase 2 one for
    each wheel.
    and as for the rear bearings themselves, I guess I should just replace the
    inner and outer ones, and do they come with new racers or do I use the old
    ones ?
