Interesting. Overtorquing would be pretty sloppy, but possible. Loosening on the ground is super common as it's a lot easier to do that than when it's in the air and the wheel wants to spin (my trick is to put a board between the drivers seat and the brake pedal and use the power seat to move forward and press on the brake pedal to hold the wheel while loosening).

I was able to swap out the hub & bearing assembly. Quite a challenging job, as it has never been pulled before, even though the axles have been replaced and CV boots have been replaced over the past 10 yrs and 133k miles. It was really rusted in place, a puller wouldn't budge the thing. Soaked it in PB Blaster repeatedly. I finally had to use the bolts, partially screwed into the hub, and a sledge to a socket & extension to hit the bolts from behind the hub to gradually knock it loose.

Install was much easier, after cleaning up the steering knuckle with a brass brush and PB Blaster. What a job.... but it solved my rumbling noise that sounded like a bad tire. It was the right front (I was guessing as to the location, and wasn't completely sure). The bearing actually felt fine, no measurable play, but it was clearly going bad, as the noise is gone now.

I used an SKF hub/bearing assembly, and a new axle nut, sourced from Rock Auto. I have a second one to do the driver's side, but after this one I was in no shape to start on that. I put everything back together, drove it, noise gone. Am tempted to wait on the other side until it starts to make noise before tackling it, as this was quite an effort.

I've done this on my front DS and can attest that getting bearing free from knuckle is not easy. Massive vice +5lb hammer. Lots of whacking. Actually, had to bring it to a buddy with air tools. Air chisel helped a lot.

In 9 out 10,kunckle would need to come off the car. Can't imagine anyone having success with it mounted. Even a pro shop.

dab a 50/50 mix of acetone and non-synthetic atf on with a cheap paint brush and let it sit overnight. as the acetone evaporates, it sucks in the atf.

I'm in process of replacing DS hub, I couldn't get it of from the knuckle by hammering from behind with 2kg hammer, so I removed knuckle from the car, putted on the banch and few hard smashes with this hammer did it. I couldn't finish the job, because the online store send me the wrong hub, know I have to wait till Monday to finish.

Finally I've finished, I ordered in local parts store the SNR hub, after I've received, I noticed that this hub is made by NTN Japan. Isn't the NTN supplier of bearings for Subaru?

Looks good. NTN looks OEM. What was your cost?

Anyone know how untorquing the axle nut with weight on wheels causes damage to the bearing? I'm not familiar with any reason why that would be an issue.

Looks like my Driver's rear bearing is bad. Loud 'airplane engine' noise coming from the rear. Put up the rear seats this weekend and it is much louder and it was easier to identify which side. Left turns make it go quiet. Right, turns not much change.

Got OEM (wow, expensive!) hub because if ABS issues I've heard about with aftermarket. I might be regretting that, but with limited time, I want to get it right the first time.

I'll do it when I swap winter tires over in the next few weeks.
