Ok so i own a 05 taco, 4wd. I recently was driving and started to hear a gridning poping noise from my front left side. well warrenty run out and all i decided to take the taco to my garage and figure the problem out, well i pulled everything apart and found that the hub assembaly bearings where shot. well i went to the dealer thinking i could just buy the hole assembaly but i guess you can only get the base and the inner part that holds the lug bolts. now i need help on what to buy to fix this. are the bearings removable? i dont know what i should buy, and am i going to have to find a press to take the hub apart? someone please help!!

thanks

That's what the warranty manual that comes with your truck is for. A lot of the time, sales reps don't know a lot about what they are selling, so you should always do your own research.

If he purchased it used from a Toyota dealer it has a 100,000 mile warranty being that it is a certified used vehicle.. And that warranty supercedes the factory 5 year, 60k plan..
