Re: 93 Metro keeps burning up rear wheel bearings

Can you get to the center nut through the wheel with it mounted to the hub?

If so, forget about torquing it, get it set up, and adjust it by hand.

Tighten the hub nut until the wheel just spins freely, there should be a small amount of resistance, but no play in the wheel.
To check for play, grab it and top and bottom and give it a really strong wiggle, then dot he same side to side. Make sure the car is on good quality jack stands, or a proper lift.
