Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille
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?
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.
