    They were just completely rusted onto the hub, I used WD_40 and heat and kept hammering on the disk untill they finally came loose. It took about two hours on each one to finally get them off. Whoever engineered this assembly should be real proud....Mike

How to replace wheel hub assembly on pontiac grand am 2004. The wheel hub will not come off and we have been hitting the hub but no movement.

Based on year, might need to heat it up while hammering. If you have an air hammer, this may assist in removing hub. Spray some time of rust breaker, WD-40 or PB Blaster to assist you.

Kleenmaid hub seized

The only way to get it off is to cut form the circumferance to the center avoiding the shaft. I take it you have tried heat and WD 40?

1995 GMC Sonoma will not switch back out of 4 high?

Are the front hubs still locked in?

If you have manually locking front hubs, you probably have a bit of binding in the drive train due to the front wheels being locked to the drive system

After unlocking the hubs, back up about 20 feet, then back forward about 20 feet.....see then if the transfer case can then be disengaged. You MAY need to just yank on the transfer case shifter while the vehicle is moving (slowly of course).....

I had an older ford pickup which did the same thing.....disengaging the hubs and just yanking the shifter had disengaged the 4 wheel drive then I was able to put it back into 2wh high.

How hard is it to change out both front wheel bearings

Not that hard, you will need to remove the brake calipers and rotors. The hardest part is getting the proper size socket to take the axle nut off the spindle if its 4WD. If 2WD they just bolt on from the back of the spindle (4 bolts), and electrical connector for the ABS. Leave the ball joints and tie rods connected.

Cant get the front tire off

If all the lugs nuts are off, what I do for stuck wheels due to rust on the hub, take one of the other wheels and hit the tire and wheel with it. If you have WD 40, soak the hub too.

I have a 1997 gmc pickup with 4-wheel drive. The

You probably have blown drive hubs. Do you have to engage the hubs at the wheels? If not and they are automatic locking and they are probably blown or seized into the unlock position. They are not too expensive to replace with manual locking hubs (My Suggestion) but the autolocking hubs are expensive. When you take the caps off the front drive spindles and try running it again you may see the axle turning inside but not the wheel. That is the best test. Wish you luck!!

Front axle hub lube? The 4WD locker is sticking. It's ringed by a black cover with about 10 small bolts...I want to remove this cover, clean the assembly, and spray some WD40, but are there any caveats to...

This is clearly not a job that's lubricated with some WD-40. The high temperature and pressure generated in the hub is simply too great for a lubricant of that nature.
Heavy duty wheel-bearing grease is what you need. And they are available at most autoparts stores.

In some typical cases such as when the front-hub plus the black-cover and the 10-small bolts are stuck or eaten away by rust then some light lubricant such as WD-40 could be used to loosen up.

I want to remove right rear wheel to check brake shoes. big central nut hard to remove.

You do not need to remove that nut to check your breaks. That nut removes the whole hub assembly. Don't mess with it.

Now you have what are called drum brakes on the rear of your car. The front has disk breaks. Take some wd-40 and spary on the lug bolts and the center hub. Let it soak for a bit and then take a hammer and tap around on the drum to free it up. your break pads are on the inside of that drum.

Need to replace lug bolts

You have to rap it good with a big hammer. They will come off. Try spraying the center hub with WD 40 or penetrating oil and let it set for a while.
