RE: My White 1990 Caravelle Syncro
Getting ready for a job @ Atlantis Dunes.
Thought my wheel bearing was was having issues so I decided to change it.
It was harder than expected and after the bearings were out I couldn't get the car off to a professional.

But at the end of the day I learned a lot!
It would have been much easier if all the bolts were new and came off easily but had to drill some out and buy some much bigger wrenches.

BEARING HOUSING
   

I made this bearing puller out of some washes, bearings, impact wrench sockets, a spring compressor and a hole saw.
It would have worked really well if I wasn't trying to push the bearings out the wrong way Rolleyes
In the end I got them out through the back ( right way ) with a mallet and a socket the the size of the bearings outer part.
I broke the outer bearing on reinstallation and then used the puller correctly and successfully to remove it again.
Once the outer bearing was inside the centre of the bearing housing I then had to smack the inner one out from the outside by hitting a smaller socket against the spacer.
They then both came out fine through the back of the bearing housing.
   
   
   

Learned how to adjust the Hand Brake - so simple and yet it has caused me so much frustration in the past - one of those things that is irritating if it isn't working well but you don't want to be without your car for a day or two to get it sorted.

       

Worked into to the night to get the Syncro ready for a job in Atlantis Dunes and only managed 4 hours sleep.

Working in the Dunes is usually such a bummer but the Syncro turned it into an awesome day.
                       

Reconditioned Spare wheel Carrier looked the part.
