REPXPERT has released a new technical video guide showing how to correctly replace the front and rear wheel bearings on a 2012 Ford Fiesta.
Renowned REPXPERT Alistair Mason talks through the process.
Education is a central theme throughout the REPXPERT site, with the online training section providing a huge library of installation videos from the REPXPERT technical team.
Many of Schaeffler’s renowned ‘belt and clutch academy’ clinics are also viewable, with Schaeffler’s technical manager, Alistair Mason providing the helpful voice over on the growing number of installation videos.
The front wheel requires a press to remove the generation one type wheel bearing before inserting the new unit into the hub assembly, and features an ABS encoder ring incorporated into the bearing.
In contrast, the rear wheel bearing is a generation three hub unit, which is a complete bolt-on module incorporating the mounting plate, bearing, wheel flange and ABS encoder.
Marketing and digital media executive, Tony Yates said: “With around two million Ford Fiesta and Ka models that use these bearings on the UK’s roads, this should be a popular repair for any independent workshop, so this additional resource to the REPXPERT portal provides another really useful video for mechanics.
“It is worth reinforcing the message that everything on the REPXPERT site is completely free, with mechanics just needing to enter their workshop details and to then validate their registration after receiving a confirmation email.
“They will then become a REPXPERT member, with all the privileges and opportunities this provides.”
