How to instal a rear bearing on a saturn veu 2002?auto repair


This would be a bolt on hub and bearing assembly. You will remove the wheel and the brake rotor or drum. Then unplug the abs sensor if equipped. Remove the axle nut if it's an all wheel drive (it is important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec after replacing the bearing. Failure to properly torques the bearing will result in premature bearing failure). Remove the four bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. Rmove the hub/bearing assembly.

Replace left front wheel bearing on 2002 yukon 4x4 abs


Remove the axle nut. Put a punch in the fins of the rotor to keep the hub from spinning. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Unplu the abs harness. Remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. Remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. Reverse to install. Make sure you torque the three bolts that hold the bearing to the knuckle and the axle nut to the correct torques spec. Failure to do so will cause premature bearing failure. Also use a good quality bearing. SKF is a good brand. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How to assemble a front wheel bearing on a 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4


The front wheel bearing is a hub and bearing assembly. To remove you will.... 1. Remove the tire 2. Remove the axle nut. You can put a punch in the fins of the rotor to keep the assembly from turning while you rmove the nut. You can can do the same thing when you torque the axle nut. 3. Remove the caliper and rotor. 4. Unplug the abs sensor if equipped. 5. Remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. 6. Rmove the hub. If you need torque specs let me know and i'll get them for you. It is absolutely critical that you torque the axle nut to the proper spec!

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.

I have a 2003 Vue...and the ABS light will not turn off...is it safe to drive until I can get it fixed?


If ABS light is on,you still have base brakes,just like an older vehicle with no ABS.Not a problem,as a matter of fact I always disable the ABS on my vehicles because I don't like it.

Whirring noise - Saturn VUE


Greg,
Sounds like wheel bearing issues. I've had my front wheel bearings replaced twice on an 02 Vue AWD V-6. The 02-07 Vues use the same wheel bearings and they are a known issue with these
cars. Another problem with these cars is the rear support bearing for the drive shaft in the AWD models. I recommend having the wheel bearings and rear carrier bearing checked out. Good luck.

2005 Saturn Vue AWD 6 cylinder whistle


Hi all,
I currently own a 2005 saturn vue and also a 2002 saturn vue. My 2005 began making the same whistling sound around 36000 miles, I let it go and let it go. Finally it got so bad I could not deal with it any longer, I have a great mechanic and he automatically point out the carrier bareing I had it replaced and my car is very very peaceful...... :) Hope this helps.
