34mm.

Local Canadian Tire & Part Source stores loan both the axle nut sets and hub puller, if you need one.

For those that have changed the front wheel bearing if I may ask a silly question? According to the Chilton manual for a 95 SSEi, "If a new hub and bearing has a protective plastic cover, remove it before installation." What would happen if you don't remove them?


Thanks
Frank

Why wouldn't you remove them? Or did you forget or something?

If they are talking about the plastic thing that holds the abs plug, then.. it blocks the axle from going through it.

It'* not the piece that holds the ABS, it'* the protective plastic cover (blue) that covers the rear bearing part that mounts into the spline
