How To Test and Replace Thrust Bearings

This 2005 Honda Civic with a 1.7L engine has had oil leaks for some time. In this video I show you how I tested the thrust bearing clearance as well as the replacement of the thrust bearings. As a bonus, I also show how to replace the cam seal on the side of the cylinder head.

Even though this didn’t solve the oil leaks, I still feel this is great information about thrust bearings, what they do, how to check them, and how to replace them.

Thanks for watching!
