Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

96 deville new hub assembly stops rotating when tightened

While replacing the front right wheel hub bearing assembly after removing the old hub bearing there are 3 bolts that hold the assembly in place the problem is that while the bearing spins freely while unattached and after installing 1 of the three bolts, when 2nd bolt is put in placed (but not tightened yet) the bearing locks in place and will not rotate at all to allow access to install the remaining bolt. Car is in the on position and transmission is in neutral. Any suggestions?

    The abs wire was what i first noticed might be the problem, should the it rotate with the bearing or is it stationary? No, only left side of car is lifted up. Moving the steering wheel provides a little give but not enough to gain access to the third bolt opening. Did not try tapping it in as I am not the one who was working on it until this problem came up. I will try that and let you know. I assume there is an opening then that it must seat into at lease slightly right? Does it matter if the engine is started opposed to just in the "on" position?

    The wires will stay put as long as they don't get caught on the axle as you try turning the hub. You only need the steering unlocked, engine off. It sounds like it's just binding a little. If you put the car in park and have both wheels off of the ground, you can turn the opposite side and that should make that side turn as well.Try having the wheels straight and push the center of the axle in as far as possible and hand start the other bolts.It's kind of a pain, but it will eventually cooperate.

    ok, great!! Sounds like to me its either the ABS wire being incorrectly fed through that back plate, or he just didn't get the assembly properly seated. Thank you sooo much you've helped me a great deal in understanding the problem and I sincerely appreciate your time and patience. I'll check it out and let you know.

Are both wheels off of the ground? (shouldn't really make a difference, but you never know). Also make sure the hub assembly is sitting flush in the spindle. You might have to 'tap it in a little to seat it. And check that the abs wires aren't getting caught around the cv axle while rotating.

How do i remove the hub assembly from the front wheel of my 2001 dodge ram RWD?


  • Jack up your Dodge Ram. Block the wheels to keep it from rolling as you work. Get started by removing the first tire and wheel assembly. Remove the hub extension and the brake caliper as well as the caliper adapter.
  • Remove the grease cap, cotter pin, nut lock, nut, washer and outer wheel bearing. Now, pull the old rotor off of the spindle. Clean the area with a damp cloth to remove any debris. Pack the wheel bearings with grease.
  • Install the new rotor and hub onto the spindle. Replace the outer wheel bearing, washer, and then the retaining nut. Torque the nut to 30 to 40 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub and rotor. Then tighten the nut and install the nut lock and a new cotter pin.
  • Clean the grease cap and then coat it with new wheel bearing grease and replace the cap. Put the caliper adapter back into place and then tighten the two mounting bolts with a torque wrench. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  • Repeat this process for each additional rotor and then lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts and test drive your Dodge Ram to make sure that the installation was successful.

    How to replace rear wheel hub


    Sodium based grease is not compatible with lithium based grease. Do not lubricate the wheel bearings without first thoroughly cleaning all old grease from the bearing. Use of incompatible bearing lubricants could result in premature lubricant breakdown.
    1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
    2. Remove the wheels.
    3. Remove the brake drum or brake disc.
    4. Remove the hub grease cap.
    5. Remove the cotter pin retainer, adjusting nut and flatwasher from the rear wheel spindle. Discard the cotter pin.
    6. Remove the outer bearing and cone assembly.
    7. Remove the rear hub from rear wheel spindle.
    8. Using Seal Remover (TOOL-1175-AC) or equivalent, remove and discard the oil seal.
    9. Remove the inner bearing cone and roller assembly.
    10. Clean the inner and outer bearing cups with solvent. Inspect the bearing cups for scratches, pits, excessive wear and other damage. If the bearing cups are worn or damaged, remove them using a Bearing Cup Puller (T77F-1102A) or equivalent.
    To install:
    1. Throughly clean old grease from the surrounding surfaces. If a new hub assembly is being installed, remove the protective coating using degreaser.
    2. If the inner or outer bearing cups were removed, install replacement cups using Bearing Cup Replacer (T73-1202-A) or equivalent. Seat the cups properly in the hub.
    If a bearing packer is not available, work as much grease as possible between the rollers and cages. Grease the cone surfaces.
    1. Using a bearing packer, pack the bearing cone and roller assemblies with a premium bearing grease.
    2. Place inner bearing cone and roller assembly in the inner cup. A light film of grease should be included between the lips of the new grease retainer.
    3. Install the retainer with Hub Seal Replacer (T83T-1175-B) or equivalent. Be sure the retainer is properly seated.
    Keep the hub centered on the spindle to prevent damage to the retainer and spindle threads.
    1. Install the hub assembly on the spindle.
    2. Install the outer bearing cone and roller assembly on the spindle.
    3. Install the flat washer and nut. Tighten the nut to 18-23 ft. lbs. (24-31 Nm) while rotating the hub to set the end-play. Back off the nut and retighten to 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
    4. Install the new cotter pin.
    5. Install hub grease cap.
    6. Install brake drum or disc.
    7. Install the wheels.
    8. Lower the vehicle.
