Hello there!,
Its been a while since i have been on here,
Becoming a father seems to do that with your free time haha,

Anyway.. my dashboard gave me a surprise today and it seems my Abs is cooked.
Im suspecting it has to do with the right wheel in the rear since it made a screetching sound this week..
A friend told me it might be the wheel bearing and it needs to be replaced.
Does anyone has any experience in replacing it themself?

The rear wheel bearings are replaced by replacing the entire hub assembly, and it's actually quite easy. You remove the wheel, then the brakes, then the axle nut. After the axle nut is off you remove the 4 bolts that hold the hub on. Then either attach a hub puller and yank it off (preferred) or beat it off with a hammer. Then reassemble in reverse order. But, before you do all of that, get the codes read to make certain that that is indeed the issue. No sense in replacing the wrong part.

@mr_et2,,Thanks!

I will try that, Plugged it into a codereader today.
It said there was an issue with the abs sensor, the mechanic that helped me advised me the same to just replace the whole set (wheel bearing and sensor) becouse of the age of my patriot.
Thanks for the advice how to work on it!
