Quote "Then i noticed 2 small dark rusty holes in the brake drum,cleaned them out and screwed in to (two) small bolts and wound the brake drum off."

I am planning to do the same job. How did you find out what size bolts to use? I don't have a lot of different bolts to try.

Also I see that a previous poster mentioned a possible 32 mm hub nut. I ordered a Honda Jazz nut from a UK supplier and got just that - a 32mm nut. I found out it was wrong after I took off the dust cap. Now I am getting a genuine - 30mm -  part from Honda. Maybe some do have 32mm nuts??

Another question. What is the best tool to bend back the locking tab on the old nut to get it off. It needs to be a tough old bit of metal to bend the nut. A screwdriver is no good. Does a nail really work?


the extractor bolt holes in rear hub are M8, put a bit of copper grease or lube on the thread to make them easier to turn as the holes will be full of rust.  The standard UK wheel nut on many cars is 30mm - use a single hexagon socket (the double hexagon with 12 corners in them will often round off the corners of the wheelnut) ,  also use an 18 inch bar on the socket and make sure tyre is firmly on the ground or you will really struggle to undo it- and the threads are all RH  (clockwise to tighten, anti-clock to slacken) they used to have both RH and LH threads on car hubs so that rotation of wheel would always tend to tighten the nut. Nut tightening torque is 160NM if you use a torque wrench - make sure thread is un-lubricated or torque value is meaningless.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Thanks for the help. I have a six point, surface drive socket, which I understand is the best type - although I've never used one before!  eg.

No problems changing the hub and bearing. It went amazingly smoothly. Took about 20min.

Only problem I had was the first hub nut I bought was 32mm and obviously the wrong size when I removed the dust cap. So I ordered one direct from Honda (expensive!) and it is 30mm. I don't know if the vendor made a mistake or if the front hub nut is 32mm??? Seems unlikely.

Hi
I have 2003 model. Recently Honda recalled my car due to possible defective air bag. After correcting my air bag problem, they gave a visual health check report and it says the rear right wheel bearing is 60% worn and gave an estimate of GBP 236.40 (not sure if it includes service charge). I am the second owner and mileage is 61,600. Is this a common problem with this particular model of Jazz? I was wondering if I need to really pay this much or should Honda replace it free of cost? Any other suggestions/information would be appreciated?
Thank you

My car has done 61,000 miles and is ten years old. But I am in Portugal. Getting it done here free would be highly unlikely. I did it myself for less than 60 (hub and Honda nut). It was very easy and took only 20 minutes.

Common problem with the early models.
You don't need to pay that much.
No, it's a 11 year-old car.
Get an independent garage to do it with an aftermarket replacement. (based on a 1hr minimum labour charge and cost of parts should be closer to 100 - see above)

The rear wheel bearing kit is very easy to work with. A 30 mm box spanner, A screwdriver to unlock the hub nut and a half inch ratchet is all we need. Remove the wheel, remove the dust protector. Unlock the nut and remove it. The assembly can be easily pulled out by hand. If the assembly id firmly stuck to the drum, Hit the wheel bolts down gently. Still if it dint come out gently hit the old kits longer side. It will come out and the work is straight forward.
In Honda showroom the part is 170. In local seller, it is just 50 for Blue Print brand. 20 minutes, work is done and roughly keep 150 in our pocket. I did it today when my Jazz showed 82000 miles on board. Happy enough :D

My Honda replacement NS rear bearing has now started moaning and requires replacing. The car has done 60K miles on the replacement a bit better than the 50K on the original.

Fortunately replacements are available for 26 now on Ebay.  So at least replacement is cheap and easy.

So did you get yours done? I am planning to replace both of mine and was wondering if the eBay ones will last a year or not?

We had a dreadful droning noise from our 40,000 mile,  52 plate Jazz CVT. It came on quite suddenly, so popped into our local and very good, Halford's Autocentre. (WORKSOP - I recommend them)
Almost instant diagnosis, after a road test and on-the-lift inspection: it was decided that  BOTH rear wheel bearings being worn as the cause, with the off side being the worst.
Cost of replacement of both of 295.00.
A lift home, there and then was offered, while the parts were sourced and the job done, with my collection from home being promised. Just over fours hours later I was picked up, paid the bill and drove off - noise cured.
(At this price, not Honda badged parts, of course, but on a car worth less than a grand, trade, why spend more?)

I replaced my rear o/s bearing today.
The bearing I got from Ebay for 25 Came with a bigger 32mm(?) nut, so I just used the existing one which is 30mm.
I belive US spec Jazz(fit) has a 32mm nut and Euro is 30mm but am not 100% sure.

Thank you everyone for the advice in this topic.

I have a 30mm A/F full hex socket, which I use for bearing nut,  but USA nut may be a 1-1/4" A/F.
