How do i replace a front wheel bearing for a 1999 chevy prism

    Front left bearing went out, lots of vibration at speed, not like wheel balance, so jacked it up and wheel was loose in all directions, bearing really worn. Surprise is mechanic says the hub is shot, not that the bearing wore through, but that the vibration from no tight bearing pounded the hub in, and you need to replace it. $30 bearing, $8 seal, $150 hub, $150 labor. I did the bearing on the other side before the hub was ruined, even tho it didn't need it, $150 total. 131,000 miles.

The wheel bearings are pressed, you will have to take it into a shop.

1999 Chevy Cavalier When I am driving and turn the steering wheel there is a grinding/chattering noise from the front of the car. Is it the cv joints or the wheel bearings?


If it is wheel bearings the noise would be there all the time with a growing whine as you accelerate, to me I would say the drive shafts {CV joints} need to be replaced. Sorry to bare the bad news, Remember we are here to help as best we can, good luck

it is almost impossible to solve without hearing it in person, but some things to check are the front brakes, front wheel bearings, tires, and loose suspension parts.

Your car has a hub assembly for a wheel bearing to get this off you need to jack your car up, Take off the tire, Remove the 2 bolts behind the caliper to take the caliper off, remove the rotor ( you may need to hit it with a hammer to get it off as they tend to rust onto the hub) Then there is 3 bolts on the hub remove them to take the hub off and install the new hub. Hope this helps.

Chaning right wheel bearing on 1999 Chevy Malibu


It is much easier, and cheaper to find a steering knuckle or "hub assembly" in a salvage yard.
To begin, jack up the car and remove the wheel. Be certain the car is stable and will not roll off jack(s)!
Remove the spindle nut. Remove the brake caliper (hang on a wire). Remove the bolt for lower ball join. Remove the bolt that goes thru strut. Now, pull assembly off while prying to ease pressure from the lower control arm.
Depending on how many miles you have on the car, you might want to head-off some future trouble by replacing the half-axle while you have the front end disassembled.
