That is an axle nut. It only hold s the axle into the hub assembly. 130 ft/lbs. Remove the caliper. 2 15mm bolts remove the caliper. The rotor should be loose. If there are star clips on 1 or 2 lug studs, cut them off and discard. These are for initial production only.

Are you saying that you are trying to replace the lug stud? The studs are pressed into the spindle that the rotor is mounted to. It is possible to pull the stud thru the spindle by tightening the lug nut, but this is not the proper way to do it. The proper way would be to remove the rotor and the spindle from the vehicle and press the lug stud into the spindle with a press. But I have pulled studs into the spindle when I was broken down on the side of the road with 5 broken studs. You just have to make sure you tighten the nuts until they do not tighten anymore, and check the nuts every day until they do not tighten anymore.

I own a 2007 saturn vue which i plan to keep forever..i love it..just took my car in due to air cond.problem ..well compressor leaks getting it fixed but i did purchase a warrenty after my car care warrent...


Regularly change oil, plugs, wires, fuel filter, flush cooling system, and keep an eye on things like tire wear, brakes, ****** fluid, brake fluid, etc. Basic maintenance can keep you from big problems, but as with any vehicle, they arent indestructible and things will just eventually go bad. Then the fun begins :)

Having trouble removing right front wheel bearing on my 04 vue i tried tapping, chisels, air chisel, penetrating oil nothing seems to work.


The Saturn Vue should have a bolt-on bearing with integrated wheel hub and ABS. It is held on with 3 bolts.

I assume that you got the wheel, rotor, and brake caliper off. You've removed the 3 bolts thru the knuckle to the bearing. And you have the axle nut off and the axle pushed out or at least lose from the bearing spline.

The bearing can get stuck in the aluminum knuckle pilot diameter. The galvanic corrosion between the bearing and knuckle can lock the bearing into the knuckle pretty tightly. It is not a press fit, it's just stuck. I had one GM bearing that had to be pushed out with a hydraulic press.

Keep soaking with penetrating oil and keep hitting it. Otherwise you'll need to remove the knuckle/bearing from the car and find a press.

2004 Saturn Vue Brakes


The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.
