Wheel bearing split while removing- parts left in the knuckle
Pulled the passenger side front wheel bearing late last night. Started at 9pm, about 105 degree in the garage. My shop light broke, so working with just a residential overhead light.
Pulled the wheel bearing, it was a bit ward to get out. What I discovered was the back part of the wheel bearing separated from the main bearing body and was froze in the knuckle. It took about ten minutes to get the separated wheel bearing part out of the knuckle. It was seating so nicely in the knuckle- it gave the appearance, in low light, that it was part of the knuckle.
