Removing the front wheel bearing from the (2006 onwards) Ford Transit is a job that needs a strong and robust specialist puller and the Laser Tools 5545 has been designed to simplify this often difficult job. Once the bearing has been removed it leaves behind the inner race and this is removed using the Inner Bearing Removal Tool (part no: 5738) which is used in conjunction with 5545.
Designed and manufactured in the UK by Laser Tools at their manufacturing plant in Sheffield, these new additions to the range are designed to be used with the hub left on the vehicle. The first operation removes the complete bearing / drive flange assembly from the vehicle, then the second operation removes the bearing from the assembly, allowing the drive flange to be reused. The inner race remains in place however, and traditionally this could only be removed by cutting away with an angle grinder with the very real risk of damaging the stub axle and rendering it unserviceable. The 5738 inner bearing removal tool is now assembled to the 5545 and the inner race removed, the engineered design gripping the taper securely, allowing smooth removal and an undamaged stub axle.
Professional tools for the professional technician. Available now at a typical price of £332.38 for the 5545 puller and £248.92 (both + VAT) but remember to check your local supplier for the best prices and special offers.
