08 Nissan Sentra rear passenger tire locked in place. Sign In

My Nissan sentra is a 2.0L engine base model. My rear passenger tire won't turn. It is locked in place. I have not removed the tire to see, so this question is to see if someone is familiar, and is this something I should not bother with myself. History of problem is that the wheel bearing(hub) has needed to be replaced on that wheel. I am just curious as to what I potentially have created by not replacing it in a timely manner, ie.. Seized shoes, damaged drum?

If you have been just ignoring a bad wheel bearing, then it has likely just welded itself together. You don't even want to think about attempting this. It's going to be a nightmare for even an experienced tech. He may have to cut it out with a torch and you have probably ruined a lot more than just a wheel bearing now.

Not in a timely manner? You mean you ran it until it finally locked up.

If you think what you were quoted to fix this when you were first told it needed to be fixed was something, you will soon find out what a real repair bill looks like.

I'm glad this isn't in my bay, and as HT stated the first tool I would be going for is the torch, which is about the only thing that is going to get this apart.
