Default Tips & Tricks for Front Wheel Bearing Replacement?

I think the dumb bastid that owned this quad before me used red locktite on the backing plate(disc) bolts and they are not wanting to come out at all.

Will applying the heat necessary to break the locktite bond warp or damage the connected parts?

Appreciate the help!

Yes Heat is the BEST way to get locktite loose. Be patient let the heat absorb through the bolt before your try...

You don't have to take the disc off to replace the front wheel bearings. But yes, heat will help break them loose, as will putting penetrating oil on them and letting it soak for a day or so.

Really on the removal? From what I had seen in the manual it looked like that had to be removed? Explain it to me if you can, I'd really appreciate it!!

Well, I dunno. But on the ones I've replaced, I'm almost positive that I didn't have to take the rotor off the hub. I just replaced a set last summer in a Warrior. You have to drive them out from opposite sides, of course (fromt he back for the outside ones and from the front for the inside ones) but I don't think I've EVER had the rotors off the hubs on any of the Warriors I've had (a total of six) and I've changed prolly four sets of wheel bearings.

No, you dont need to take the rotors of, maybe if you have like an 87 or around there they could be different, but newer ones don't. I would get a clymer manual easiest way for it to be explained to you, but wr13 is right.
