01-00046 Dismounting tool for 3 & 4 bolted wheel bearings on SUV/US models with 6 & 8 wheel bolts
Bolted wheel bearings with deeper fittings in aluminum or steel axle knuckle are often seized badly with rust after a few years. Instead of destroying the parts by heating and hammering or cracking it in the shop press, the bearing can quickly and easily be pressed out directly on the vehicle with this new dismounting tool. It can be used with only a hydraulic cylinder when the axle shaft is removed. It can also be used with a special hub plate 01-00045 when the axle shaft still is located in the hub. This will save lots of time and is in many cases a must (Dodge, Chevrolet, GMC, and Ford Pickup truck). The design of the press feet allows access on both 3 and 4 bolted wheel bearings on SUV and US Pickup trucks (Dodge, Chevrolet, GMC, and Ford). The adjustable fixing plate in combination with the design of the press feet makes it possible to dismount also the largest hubs of 180 mm. The two press feet can also be ordered as a pair in set; 01-00046-020.
