Here are the wheel bearings: Ntn 3306C3 Ball Bearing Double Row Ball Bearing


1. loosen castle nut on end of axel.
2. Remove Axel assembly from car.
3 remove , disc and backing plate
4. Remove inner bearing dust shield , has two slots on it. Use flat blade driver to remove. Counter clock wise.
5. put axel into press, press out axel.
6. flip hub over, then press out bearing, may need some heat/ cold to come out.
7. once out clean hub and home of wheel bearing with degreaser, and get all diry grease out.
8. Repack hub with new CV grease.
9. Grease new bearing with cv grease and then place on to of hub assembly.
10. make sure both hub and assebly are lever
11. use flat metal plate on top of bearing, so you get even pressure.
12.start to press slowly. you will hear little poping sounds thats ok,its the grease compressing and air escaping.
13. keep close I on bearing, once your beaing is at least half way and level you should be ok to continue to press.
14. once seat in bottom of the hub, then make you are able to still turn the bearing.
15, now pack more grease around the bearing, then place the inner dust shild on the hub and will sit atop of the bearing.
16. Then side you axle back in.
17. then remember to install the castle nut on end of the axel.
18. install axel in your Saab.

This great time to attend to all your front end needs, go though your brake system and do all the axel boots ( c900 cv boot fit -v4). Steering rack boots. Upper and lower control arm bushings. Shocks too.
