Socket size rear wheel bearing hub

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the socket size for the rear wheel bearing hubs on the Mk 2.5 focus 2009 model?

 

Need to replace bearing but need to get a torx style female socket to fit it.

 

Thanks

In the Haynes book it says:

Quote

the rear hub bearings cannot be renewed separately but are supplied as a complete assembly with the rear hub

but it doesn't mention the size of the torx bolts, sorry about that 😞

According to a guide I got on here think it was from @JW1982 it's M10.

Edit: done some investigation the M10 is the male what you need is an E10.

Got sorted this evening and renewed both sides. Size was 12 (I think.... )

Old hubs came out ok but one side had to be cut due to a bolt being too corroded.

 

Glad it's all sorted anyways .

 

Thanks all.

Cool it's not very helpful the way ford has randomised the fittings I'm sure they done it on purpose to make more money. What was happening that made you get them done?

The car is 11 year old, I have had it for 8 Years its done 145,000 miles and still going great, Rear wheel bearing were just starting to get worn, no play but when up on ramp and turned by hand they felt very rough and grindy, on certain road you could here them starting to make noise so decided to swap them out. Every year I do an detail check on family cars and replace stuff as soon as I think they need to be replaced, same goes for services ect. Have always done this with all cars in family for years and I find looking after them from time to time is cheaper and they give no bother, a little bit like ourselves lol!

Was it a noise sort of like Rolf Harris with his flexible boards? I sometimes get an odd noise like that then it goes away I'm 2008 and when spinning mines there is a slight tick but hasn't been too problematic.

No just a bearing noise, it's like a kind of him or drone type noise but it can chance tone depending on in the weight on each whee. Or example when turning a sharp corner ect. 

Some people I know won't chance them untill they are showing play but I personally swap them if they are noisy or if they feel by hand they are rough in motion. 

 

The old escorts you could grease them if they were noisy and even tighented a little but the focus wheel bearing are sealed as a hub unit so just a replace if they go.
