A new front axle wheel hub retainer (3B477). A new lower control arm to steering knuckle pinch bolt and nut. Once removed, these parts must not be reused during assembly. Their torque holding ability or retention capability is diminished during removal. Removal 1. Raise vehicle on hoist. Refer to Section 00-02. 2. Remove tire and wheel assembly. 3. Remove front brake anti-lock sensor (2C204) as outlined. 4. Remove tie rod end cotter pin and loosen castellated nut. Separate tie rod end (3A130) from front wheel knuckle (3K186) using Tie Rod End Remover TOOL-3290-D or equivalent. 5. Insert a steel rod into front disc brake rotor (1125) to prevent turning. Remove the front axle wheel hub retainer. 6. Remove disc brake caliper (2B120) and front disc brake rotor (1125). Refer to Section 06-03. Support disc brake caliper with wire. 7. CAUTION: Never use a hammer to separate the halfshaft from the front wheel hub (1104). Damage to the outboard front wheel drive shaft joint threads and internal components may result. Separate the halfshaft from wheel hub using Front Hub Remover/Replacer T81P-1104-C, Metric Hub Remover Adapters T83P-1104-BH and Front Hub Replacer T81P-1104-A. Support end of halfshaft.

Removal NOTE: If, for any reason, the rear hub (1109) is removed from the spindle, the old hub seal must be removed and a new hub seal installed. 1. Set the parking brake and loosen the eight axle shaft retaining bolts. 2. Raise the vehicle to the desired working height, keeping the axle parallel with the floor. 3. Release parking brake and back off the rear brake adjustment, if necessary. 4. Remove the wheel (1007). 5. Remove brake drum (1126). Push-on (sheet metal) drum retainer nuts may be discarded. Push-on retainer nuts are used for shipping purposes only and have no vehicle function. If retainers are not flush against the drum, the retainers can prevent the wheel from being flat against the drum, which could contribute to vibration. 6. Place a drain pan under the axle shaft (4234) and rear hub. Remove the eight 7/16-inch axle shaft bolts and remove the axle shaft. Axle Shaft Removal 7. CAUTION: The right hub nuts are right-hand thread; the left hub nuts are left-hand thread. Each hub nut is stamped RH for the right hub nut or LH for the left hub nut. Install Locknut Wrench T85T-4252-AH so that the drive tangs of the tool engage the four slots in the hub nut. 8. CAUTION: A new hub nut must be installed if used hub nut comes apart during removal or installation. CAUTION: Under no circumstances are power impact tools to be used when performing these operations. NOTE: The hub nut will ratchet during this operation. Remove hub nut (counterclockwise for right-hand thread; clockwise for left-hand thread). 9. Install Step Plate Adapter D80L-630-7 (Part of Step Plate Adapter Set D80L-630-A) or equivalent. 10. Install 2-Jaw Puller D80L-1002-L or equivalent and loosen rear hub to the point of removal. 11. CAUTION: Do not drop outer hub bearing when removing. Remove rear hub assembly.

The recommended wheel bearing lubricant is lithium-base High-Temperature Constant Velocity Joint Grease E43Z-19590-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESP-M1C207-A. CAUTION: Sodium-base grease is not compatible with lithium-base grease. Do not intermix. Clean all old lubricant grease prior to lubricating front/rear wheel bearing. Use of incompatible bearing lubricant could result in premature lubricant breakdown. NOTE: If bearing adjustment does not eliminate looseness or rough and noisy operation, clean, inspect and repack the hub and wheel bearings with specified wheel grease. If wheel bearing cup or the cone and roller assemblies are worn or damaged, they should be replaced. Manual Locking Hub, Ranger Disassembly 1. Raise the vehicle and install Rotunda Car/Truck Stands 077-00018 or equivalent. 2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly. 3. Remove the retainer washers and remove the hub assembly. Refer to Manual Locking or Automatic Locking Hubs under Front Wheel Bearing Adjustment in this section for removal. 4. Remove the disc brake caliper (2B120) as described in Section 06-03. 5. Remove the hub and rotor. Remove the outer wheel bearing cone. 6. Remove the wheel hub grease seal (1190) from the rotor with Seal Remover TOOL-1175-AC or equivalent and Impact Slide Hammer T50T-100-A. Discard wheel hub grease seal and replace upon assembly. 7. Remove excluder seal. 8. Remove the inner wheel bearing. 9. NOTE: If new wheel bearing cups are installed, install new cone and roller assemblies. Inspect the wheel bearing cups for pits or cracks. If necessary, remove them with Internal Puller D80L-943-A or equivalent and Impact Slide Hammer T50T-100- A. Assembly 1. Lubricate the wheel bearings with High Temperature Constant Velocity Grease E43Z-19590-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESP-M1C207-A. Clean all grease from the hub. Pack the cones and rollers. If a bearing packer is not available, work as much lubricant as possible between the rollers and the cages. 2. If wheel bearing cups are to be installed, position wheel bearing cups in rotor and drive in place with Bearing Cup Replacer T80T-4000-P and Driver Handle T80T-4000-W. 3. Position excluder seal on spindle and drive into position using Spindle Seal Replacer T95T-3132-D. 4. Position the inner wheel bearing in the inner wheel bearing cup in the rotor. Install the wheel hub grease seal by driving in place with Seal Replacer T80T-4000-T and Driver Handle T80T-4000-W. 5. Carefully install the rotor onto the front wheel spindle (3105). Refer to Section 06-03. 6. Install outer wheel bearing into rotor. 7. Refer to Automatic Locking Hubs under Front Wheel Bearing Adjustment in this section for remainder of installation.

1. Remove the wheel and tire assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04. 2. NOTE: Caliper is removed for clarity. Position aside the front disc brake caliper and anchor plate. 1. Remove the two front disc brake caliper anchor plate bolts. 2. Remove the front disc brake caliper anchor plate and position aside. 3. NOTE: Carry out this step for F-250 and F-350 4×4 SRW vehicles. Remove the rotor. 4. NOTE: Carry out this step for DRW vehicles. NOTE: If excessive force must be used during brake rotor removal, the brake rotors should be checked for lateral runout prior to installation. For additional information, refer to Section 206-00. Remove the eight hub extender nuts, the hub plate and the rotor. 1. Remove the eight hub plate nuts. 2. Remove the hub plate. 3. Remove the rotor. CAUTION: Due to the fit of the splines, the hub lock will be difficult to remove. Lifting or lightly prying (with a small bar) on the axle U-joint will ease removal. When prying on the cap/hub flange, work around the flange to uniformly withdraw the hub lock. 5. CAUTION: The service replacement kit includes two O-ring seals. One for testing the hub lock assembly and one for reassembly into the wheel hub. DO NOT REUSE O-RING SEALS. CAUTION: Always check the vacuum leak rate of the wheel end assembly when repairing or diagnosing the axle, wheel end or hub lock performance. Loosen each retainer screw one to two turns. ? Gently pry on the hub lock cap edge to release gasket adhesion. ? Remove and discard the retainer screws. ? While lifting/jiggling the axle U-joint, pull or uniformly pry the hub lock from the wheel hub.
