    regular NTN bearings work nicely, before installing them it would be beneficial to slightly separate the two races and push about a teaspoon of grease in the whole bearing. They come pretty void of grease from the factory, do not overfill it as it can blow out its own seals when the grease heats up.

    And get someone with experience and correct tools to install it. It needs to be pressed in gently, it is also the ideal time to inspect or replace the front lower ball joints too as the spindle would be removed to replace the bearings. If just the joint boots are bad, you can get new genuine boots from a Honda spare parts shop.

    the front bearings are replaceable as cartridges, but the rear are replaced as complete hubs and are pricey, I think they are about Rs 5000/piece - they were for Accords anyway.

    The old stock Koyo bearings that used to come wrapped in wax paper and vacuum packed had a lot of grease in them but the new ones are nearly dry, thats why put some grease in it before installation, and install it sensibly - forcing it can damage the bearing or carrier

    Hein. Used hubs?
    U mean whole hub/ drum alongwith bearings?
    Wat wil it cost 2nd hand & how will i check if bearings r good or gone.

    Actually last month i changed a few bushes & when i took out the hub, i could easily take out both rear bearings by hand ( strange, isnt it). Out of 2 one was moving freely & 2nd was little hard.

    the older Hondas had a one piece rear bearing hub assy that is bolted to the spindle with 4 bolts. All accords with the multilink swan neck suspension had those, that whole piece is not serviceable, meaning that entire piece IS the bearing, I have seen some mechanics wash it with petrol which confirms its death within 1 month.

    ^^ cz our mechanics dont have correct tools and they install bearings with dasi totkay, also now days new wheel bearing are made by china and really pathetic quality, so best way is to change the hub part, so you will get kabli/original bearing along with it and with stock fitting,
    as i said i replaced bearing with new one and they hardly give me 7 months and now one of it gone, even i installed it by a kharadia via push machine, now i jeck up the car and checked by moving the rotor up n down n its moving too. so m also thing to replace that thing with kabli now

    the wheel bearing cartidges I have bought under NTN brand name were nearly empty - just a smidge at best. for comparison I had a set of F.A.G bearings for my VW golf front wheels - same style just smaller - and when the races were slightly pulled about 80% of it was filled with grease. When reading the VW service manual it also speaks of checking bearing fill of grease.I agree that the machinist or mechanic can and do mosly destroy the wheel bearings while they install it. - and Japan can and does make mistakes.
