In this tutorial, I show you how to replace front wheel bearings.
The vehicle is a 2007 Honda Pilot 4WD. This workflow applies to most Honda Pilot models, as well as most front wheel drive vehicles in general.
Please take a look at the suggested parts and tools required for this job at the affiliate links provided below.
Fact: Our 2007 Honda Pilot does NOT have a magnetic pickup in the front wheel bearing for the speed sensor and ABS system. The speed sensor ring on our model is located on the CV axle. There is a lot of misinformation on the internet about what models have magnetic rings that are integral to the bearing. In fact, the National Brand bearing that I used came with instructions that indicated that I had to verify which side of the bearing had a magnetic ring prior to installation, causing even more initial confusion on my part. The bearing did NOT have a magnetic ring and it took several forwarded phone calls at the local Honda dealership to verify this fact.
Some previous year model Honda Pilots do have a magnetic rings in the wheel bearing. Be aware of this and look-up the installation requirements for your precise year model before installing your new bearings. If your year model pilot does have a magnetic ring in the bearing, make sure the magnetic side faces towards the inside (engine, middle, etc) of the vehicle.
