Recommended Posts

Need to replace my right rear wheel bearing and wanted to confirm that the Moog parts are still a good choice?

MOOG 512335 - Wheel Bearing and Hub Assembly

2010 Ford Edge AWD Ltd

 

Are the MOOG and good choice?

Should I be replacing both sides?

 

Found this youtube link which to do the work which pretty good:

SMF?

Never heard of Moog bearings but have heard of them for other suspension components.

Seems like there are a good number of videos and reviews on the Moog Rear Wheel Bearing and Hub Assembly.

 

Will see if I can find Timken or SKF distributor in Toronto.

I used Timkens in my 4x Explorer.  Changed them at about 100k and got another 113k.  No problems. I've used Moog Problem Solver upper and lower Control Arms also on the Explorer with no problems but no experience with hub assy's.  Good Luck.

For a 2015 Edge (3.5 AWD), is the rear hub/bearing assembly the exact same part as the front?  I'm planning on replacing all 4 wheel bearings on mine as I do a suspension refresh, but I can't seem to find any complete assemblies that specify that they're for the front.  For example, here are some rear assemblies:

Are the fronts and rears interchangeable on an AWD model?  I'd appreciate any advice anyone has.

 

All the best,

Andrew.

As it turns out, the Moog wheel hubs are supposed to be interchangeable between fronts and rears on the AWD models, however these particular hubs have the wrong number of splines for a 2015-2018 (second generation) car.  The 2015 model year they fit are for the first generation Edge, the last of which were rolled out in early 2015.  If you've got a 2015 year second generation car, it seems safer to input the year as 2016 on all the parts websites to ensure you get the correct component.

 

All the best,

Andrew.

So, what exactly is wrong with using Motorcraft?

I wanted to give another parts manufacturer a try to see if it was more durable. It was a failed experiment.

 

As it turns out, Moog doesn't make a part for the 2nd generation car and other manufacturers were pretty unsure on the numbers of splines used between 1st and 2nd generation cars. I ended up getting my mechanic (a Motorcraft dealer) to just get me Motorcraft parts.

 

All the best,

Andrew.
