Oh no,

You need to review the anatomy of a bearing on the very first picture I posted above.

These E14 bolts hold the Outer Race to the Carrier. For the sake of discussion, if these four E14 bolts ever come off, the wheel will become very loose!

Buy the 1/4" E14 socket and try to torque as much as you can.
