Recommended Posts

hi i bought a wheel house it is made out of what appears to be a caviler or citation rear wheel bearing. it has 4 bolts that are t 50 torx i cant budge them and dont want to break them. would heating them up with a torch help to remove them. also from what i find the bearing is about 40 bucks new is this something i could get from a scrap yard thanks for your help. the guy at the parts store said that these bearings can never blow apart so to keep using them granted i only move the house 20 miles aseason i dont know if this is true thanks for your help.

Why would you want a bearing from a junkyard...and to keep using them?! Someone gave you some really BAD info!! Soak the bolts in something for loosening up such things. Take the bearing in to somewhere where there are knowledgable people, and get the same one/type/that's in there. (if it's a proper bearing) Make sure it is installed/torqued properly, and well greased.

cavalier means it was built from a chevy cavalier car i called the guy who had it and said the house was built from a chevy citation. i'm finding that a corsica may also be the same bearing these are a non servicable bearing and need to be replaced bearings and studs are together
