They are replaceable. Common reasons for replacement include noise and low oil pressure. Replacement bearings come in standard as well as various undersizes, so rule number one is to make sure the bearing size matches the crank journals.

SOURCE: 2003 Pontiac Montana Front Wheel Bearings

Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

SOURCE: How do I replace rods and bearings in a Ford 2.3 engine??

There is a Ford "motor repair book" at most auto supply stores (not just a typical repair book).
If you have not done this before, it is somewhat of a challenge.
example: You must measure (to the micromillimeter) how much wear has been done to the piston rod end and the crankshaft so that you know what size (thickness) the replacement bearings should be. You just don't buy any bearings without measuring.

I would like to ask: Why are you doing this? You may not need to do it. Are you trying to stop an oil leak? replace seals?

Hope this helps!

Replace connecting rod bearing 5.3 litre Tahoe Z71


It is rather unusal to replace only one, but perhaps you mean they intend to replace all rod bearings. Even that is often not a good idea. Once a rod bearing has spun or failed, metal particles are al through the engine and the main bearings may be damaged as well. I hate trying to patch an engine in this fashion because it seldom gives satifactory results. You may wish to consider a short block engine replacement and have you existing heads reconditioned, or better still a crate engine of know specs which meets your usage needs. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I have a 2003 oldsmobile Alero replace the wheel bearing,still had the same problem , shake really bad 30mph.


Most likely cause: Tire out of balance. Take it to Big 10 or similar and have tire balance checked.

Also consider upper & lower ball joints and tie-rod ends. If these are loose or worn, they will cause premature tire wear which will result in tire bounce that balancing cannot correct.

Get it checked out and let us know results.

I keep having to replace tie rods on my 2003 olsmobile alero V-6 engine. I've done this 3 times and have been getting after market parts from AutoZone. Is this model known for continous breakdowns on...


They're not especially prone to failures. I'm suspecting worn struts or springs are excelerating wear in your tie rods if you're having to replace this often. Have a good front end shop look at it. Has car ever been in an accident involving front end?

Roaring noise in front of 2003 olds alero gets louder as I accelerate, sounds like manual transmission needing to be shifted to next gear(this isn't a manual transmission


Have a shop look at it. It may just be a failed wheel bearing. The bearing will leave you stranded if it gets bad enough and cause more damage.

How do you change a serpentine belt on a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero?


Brute force - you have to pry up the tensioner pulley. The way we did it was put the belt over the alternator and A/C compressor, and get it back in place around the main bearing pulley. Then we took a bar and forced up the tensioner and slid the belt over the main bearing pulley. Voila . . .

The rods are held to the crankshaft by and end cap with 2 very strong 10 mm bolts and nuts, these are made from really tough steel, what can make a rod fail, well a loose end cap will quickly destroy and often break a rod, over reeving the engine is the most common cause, also a burned out bearing, any thing that causes the rod to exceed it structural design specs will make it fail.
