rear wheel bearing, easier replacement

Thought I would share the info I found out for myself. I have a bad right rear wheel bearing and for my 07' EX AWD it was $160 for aftermarket, $170 for OEM and the kicker was that ordering the whole RR knuckle(from Honda) was $140 (loaded with new bearing and bushings). Which means less work and more parts replaced at an awesome price. At that price I might just do the left side as well

Hope that helps someone

The dealer called me this morning to say everything has arrived and I asked him to open the box and look inside and tell me if the bearings are really there along with the bushings AND apparently its a YES. Sweet, the hardest work will be seized bolts and pulling the hub out.......press in new hub, and bolt it back in

I dont understand it personally but I also don't care, as long as its less work and less money

SO, to update this and stop anyone from getting the knuckle..........the meathead in the parts department was a little turd and lied to me on the phone when i asked him "can you open the box and tell me that you see a bearing attached to the knuckle?".......his answer was yes. Until today when I went to get the parts and opened a box that was stapled shut (so no one opened and checked".....sure enough there was no bearing, But the manager was super cool and gave me 20%-30% off all the parts I ordered.

SO THERE IS NO BEARING ATTACHED TO THE KNUCKLE, but there are bushing stuffed in it already

SOrry dudes

Good work in the video, it was nice to see you make your own tools to press the bushings in the knuckle and getting the hub back in. I am a retired Automotive tech and I have seen licensed techs do a butcher job with all the right tools around them and here you are at home doing a good job.........nice
Was the backing plate and parking brake parts all from Honda or aftermarket??

My right rear backing plate is getting chewed up from the rotor when i make turns which is what has led me to replacing the wheel bearing, and since I was there i might as well do the all the bushings

And when I say "retired", I am not retired by age but left the industry because I got sick of working around hacks and the constant competition to make a buck

The backing plate and parking brake bracket that bolt on the plate are OEM, the parking brake and hardware kit are aftermarket.

$20 something for the backing plate and close to $40 for the parking brake bracket that attach to it.

The previous owner had some repair done on that rear wheel due to overheat.
They used a undersize Honda civic backing plate, the whole parking brake assembly was almost pulverize by rust and dirt...real hack job.
