How technical is it to replace a front wheel bearing on a 2005 Pontiac SV6 and can I do it without any specialized tools


you will need a big socket (20 or 21 mm) and 1/2 inch drive to remove axle nut and torque wrench to reinstall. The book DOES call for a special tool to get the hub off the axle, but I have never used one before.


Removal & Installation


  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Remove the wheel drive shaft nut.
  4. Remove the brake caliper and wire aside.
  5. Remove the brake rotor.
  6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the wheel speed sensor.
  7. Remove the wheel speed sensor connector from the bracket by depressing the locking tabs.
  8. Remove the 3 hub and bearing assembly bolts.
  9. Install Wheel Hub Removal tool J-42129 to the hub and bearing assembly in order to remove the hub and bearing assembly from the wheel drive shaft.
  10. Remove the hub and bearing assembly from the steering knuckle.

To install:
  1. Install the hub and bearing assembly to the steering knuckle.
  2. Install the 3 hub and bearing assembly bolts and tighten to 85 ft. lbs. (115 Nm).
  3. Install the wheel speed sensor connector into the bracket until the locking tabs click into place.
  4. Connect the electrical connector to the wheel speed sensor.
  5. Install the axle nut to the wheel drive shaft and hand tighten.
  6. Install the brake rotor.
  7. Use a screw driver or similar tool to stop the rotation of the brake rotor.
  8. Tighten the wheel drive shaft nut to 159 ft. lbs. (215 Nm).
  9. Install the brake caliper.
  10. Install the tire and wheel.

Need to tighten the bolts on my tilt wheel on my 1990 chevy truck


Unless you have been inside a steering column before I would not recommend the average joe doing this, Either pull the column and take it in to have it done or drive the car in to have it done. Either way it takes some time even for a mechanic to do. That being said if you want to attempt fate and try it yourself start by removing the steering wheel. Next compress the lock plate (with the special lock plate compressing tool!) remove the lock ring then the plate.Remove the horn contact ring. Remove the spring. Next remove the tab that connects the switch to the lever. loosen the lower wire harness, Unscrew turn signal switch screws and pull switch completly out. Take out the ignition switch. Next remove the two pivot pins on each side of the column(using the special pivot pin removing tool). Using the tilt lever rock the upper bowl off and remove it. You should now be able to see the four screws however the shaft may be in your way to tighten them. With 1/4 inch tools you can work arould the shaft and tighten the bolts. If you cant the shaft needs to be pulled out. So you got them tight, now all you have to do is reassemble in reverse order. This will take twice as long trying to get and keep everything aligned. NOTE : The upper bowl has bearings on the top and bottom of it be careful not to loose these.
Sounds rough? It is but it can be done with lots of patience. Seriously i would take it in... it will be far less stressful.Good luck!!

Replacing the right wheel bearing how do u remove that hub do u need a special tool for it


is it a 4x4? the wheel bearing comes with a new hub assembley . Just find out what size the front half shaft nut/ lock nut/axle nut- is. its probably a 33mm thats the only special tool you will need. Unscrew it, take your outer tie rod off the spindle/steering knuckle, theres 3 bolts behind it, take them off then disconect the abs harness and pry out the old hub assembley use a rubber hammer (dead blow hammer) to tap the half shaft out if seized. when installing the new wheel bearing see your manufacturer specs. for torquing the axle nut back on.

Rear wheel bearing


Well, you picked a beauty to fix. I don't think that either a 2 or 4 wheel drive will make a difference. The biggest problem is that after you remove the axle from the car you need a special bearing removal tool, and a slide hammer to remove the bearing from the axle. Then you need a special bearing installation tool and a universal driver handle to install the new axle shaft bearing. And last, you need a axle pinion oil seal installation tool to install the oil seal. If you are not a skilled mechanic, I would suggest that you find a local reputable mechanic and let him do this repair for you.

Oil seal leaking on 1999 gmc half ton 4w/d on front of transfere case do i need special tools or can I drop drive line and replace seal


billbohman: Unless GMC has had some change I am not aware of and that has not been published in service manuals for the repair of these units, the procedures are the same as any seal replacement and require no special tool. There are some universal seal installation tools which I would venture the majority of techs don't have because they substitute other tools in their place most of the time. Most techs will have a special tool designed from removing seals. However, the seal can be removed without it.
Just use a little common sense when removing a seal. Don't damage the casing.
Good Luck.
