Default Rear wheel bearings

Should the rear wheel bearings on a 2003 Accord be cleaned and re-greased
every so often?

That depends. How many kids does your mechanic have in college?

No. Sealed for life. These are not like the old tapered roller bearings you
may be used to.

The rear bearings tend to have far longer lives than the front ones. This
is because they are largely shielded from road splash.

Wow! Jim Beam! I love your bourbon. It has a mellowing effect on most
people.

As you know, this is my 2nd post. My 30 Jul 07 post elicited no responses.

Hi Say What?

Actually I've been doing all of the maintenance and almost all of the
repairs on my cars these last 2 score and 4. The sum total of my paid
repairs are two rebuilt automatic transmissions, a trip to the dealer for an
intermittent sensor problem, which they failed to fix, and the time in 66
when I screwed up my first fuel pump replacement, resulting in a bent push
rod.

you /still/ don't need to touch honda bearings. maintenance is not a
recreational activity.

he just wants someone to tell him to go ahead and do it. we /could/
tell him they're sealed units and can't be disassembled, but that'll
take the fun out.

That would be nasty... and mean.

It's bad enough that you didn't tell him the short cut method. You
know, where you heat the bearing units up with either a MAPP gas torch
or gentle application of an oxy-acetylene torch to redistribute the
grease and get it back down around the bearings and shaft..
