For the sliding doors you need to clean the contacts, there are 6 or 8 on both sides, just wipe them clean as they are probably covered in oil/grease/grime.

Front axle how to install


You'll need to extract the end the axle shaft from the hub bearing. There is not enough play in the axle shaft to allow this without at least partially removing the front strut assembly. Sometimes just separating the lower ball joint will allow the strut/spring to move enough to work the spline out the bearing. Once you've done that, then you must "pop" the inner CV joint out of the transaxle. It is installed with a snap ring to hold it in place. This process can be tricky and you can damage the CV joint or the transaxle case if you don't exercise caution while doing this. Be careful not to pull outward on the axle shaft...this will not release the inner joint and will most likely cause the inner joint to separate, making removal more difficult.

What size is the nut on the front hub?


I belive its a 32 mm socket that fits it, if the axle has been replaced it may be a 34 or 36 mm socket to remove, this nut is on real tight, i would go to a garage and have them loosen it for you and then tighten it just a bit to get to where you need to go and work on the van, i do this at work, i try to help people out i will loosen the nut and then spray thread on the axle to help them loosen it at home, hope this is helpful, good luck.

Need repair instructions for right front wheel assembly or hub (bearing) repair.


Hi, first put the van on jackstands and take the wheel off. then take the brake caliper and bracket, these are removed by loosening the bolts that hold the bracket to the spindle. then remove the rotor (you may have to give it a few love taps with a rubber mallet to break the rust loose), then you will need an axle nut socket set to remove the center large axle nut, this can be rented at any advance auto parts store or its equivalent. an impact gun will make removing this nut and the wheel bearing retainer bolts much quicker. once you get the axle nut loose you will need to take your rubber mallet or a brass hammer and hit the end of the cv axle to drive it out of the wheel bearing. finally remove the three wheel bearing retaining bolts located on the opposing side of the spindle, after that take any hammer and strike the wheel bearing on the backside to drive it out of the spindle( it may give a little bit of a fight to drive it out). then unclip the wire for the abs and remove the bearing. the assembly is just the reverse of the removal. good luck and have fun!

Replace a front axle 2007 pontiac van.how do i get the axle out of the hub.


To get the axle out of the hub, you have to take the nut off the axle shaft on the outside, and if you're lucky, you can turn the wheels all the way to the side that you're working on, and you may be able to pry it toward the transmission. If it won't work that way, you have to take the strut loose so the hub can tilt outward, and then you'll be able to remove it. Once the nut is off, the outside will come out with prying. Getting the nut off usually takes a hefty inpact wrench capable of at least 300-350 ft lbs. Remember that the nut must be replaced every time and cannot be reused. to get the other end out of the transmission, pry on it, and it will pop out. Only a snap ring holds it in the transmission. Be prepared for the oil that's going to leak out when you do this. Installation is reverse of removal. You'll want to have an alignment done afterwards. You can use someone stepping on the brakes to minimize the impact on the transmission when removing the nut.
