First take the wheel off
Then take the caliper off the rotor
Then take the rotor off the CV joint spindle
You will need to remove the three bolts that hold the bearing in place.
You will either need to remove the two bolts that hold the strut or
you will need a Puller.

2002 pt cruizer changed both front wheel bearings and long axle rightside now there is a humming noise on drivers side when driving and ideas thanks


It is entirely possible to have a bad replacement wheel bearing. There are many cheap ones available and I've found that you get what you pay for. I prefer Timken bearings myself. Also, the drive axle nut torque is critical in ensuring that you don't cause bearing failure. Too loose or too tight will cause bearings to fail in short order. The axle nut is not one that can be "shade tree torqued" by "grunt-power".

Here you go.
Notes:
  • To prevent damage to the spindle during removal, remove adjusting nut locking key from spindle keyway under adjusting nut prior to nut removal.
  • A slight movement of the nut will loosen the locking key so that a magnet can be used for removal.
  • During the front wheel bearing adjustment procedure, align the closest two holes in the wheel bearing adjusting nut with the center of the spindle keyway slot.
  • Advance the nut to the next hole if required. To ensure proper wheel retention, install adjusting nut locking key in alignment with spindle keyway and insert into locknut holes.
  • The double humped portion must be completely seated and flush with the locknut assembly.
  1. Raise and support front of vehicle.
  2. Remove wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove lug nut stud retainer washers, then the locking hub assembly.
  4. Remove snap ring from end of spindle shaft.
  5. Remove axle shaft spacer, needle thrust bearing and bearing spacer.
  6. Remove cam assembly, thrust washer and needle thrust bearing from wheel bearing adjusting nut.
  7. Remove the adjusting nut lock key, then the nut.
  8. Remove the rotor and replace the bearings, races and seal as necessary.
  9. Torque nut to 35 ft lb while rotating hub and rotor assembly.
  10. Back off adjusting nut 1/4 turn, then torque nut to 16 inch lbs.
  11. Align nearest hole in adjusting nut with center of spindle keyway slot. If necessary, advance nut to the next hole.
  12. Install locknut needle bearing, thrust washer and cam assembly.
  13. Install bearing thrust washer, needle thrust bearing, axle shaft spacer and snap ring.
  14. Install locking hub assembly and retainer washers, then the wheel and tire assembly.

replace the bearing or wheel hub assembly.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 2wd Models NOTE: Refer to wheel bearing service and bearing preload adjustment procedures found in Section 1.
  1. Raise the front of the truck and support it with safety stands. Remove the wheels.
  2. Remove the brake caliper and suspend it with wire, out of the way. Remove the caliper torque plate if equipped.
  3. Remove the dust cap and then remove the cotter pin, lock washer (if equipped) nut lock and nut.
  4. Pull the hub/disc assembly off the spindle with the outer bearing. Don't let the bearing fall out.
  5. Pry the inner oil seal out and remove the inner bearing. To install:
  6. Clean and inspect the bearings and outer races.
  7. Using a brass drift and a hammer, drive out the bearing outer race. Press a new one into position.
  8. Pack the bearings with grease until it oozes out the other side. Coat the inside of the hub and cap with grease.
  9. Position the inner bearing into the hub, coat the oil seal with grease and press it into the hub.
  10. Press the hub assembly onto the spindle and install the outer bearing and thrust washer.
  11. Install the hub nut. Turn the hub a few times to seat the bearings and then loosen the nut until there is 0mm axial play. Using a spring tension gauge, check that the preload (with new grease seal installed) is 2.2–6.4 lbs. (9.8–28.4N)
  12. Install the lock-nut, new cotter pin and hub grease cap.
  13. Install the brake torque plate. Install the brake caliper.
  14. Install the wheels and lower the truck.
4wd Models The hub and bearing service procedures for a 4wd models are basically the same as those for a 2wd version, with the exception of removing the free running hub assembly and the bearing preload adjustment. Refer to Sections 1 and 7 for additional information. Adjust the preload after the wheel bearing is replaced or the front axle assembly is reassembled. BEARING PRELOAD ADJUSTMENT
  1. Thoroughly clean all parts and pack the wheel bearings.
  2. Apply grease to threaded portions of the spindle, grease seal lip and wheel hub.
  3. Tighten the wheel bearing lock-nut with a socket and torque wrench to 58–72 ft. lbs. (78–98 Nm).
  4. Rotate the hub in both directions a few times to seat the bearings. Loosen wheel bearing lock-nut.
  5. Retighten the lock-nut to 0.4–1.1 ft. lbs. (0.5–1.5 Nm).
  6. Turn wheel hub several times in both directions.
  7. Retighten the lock-nut to 0.4–1.1 ft. lbs. (0.5–1.5 Nm). Fig. 1: Exploded view of the front axle assembly — 2wd models 86718030.gif

    Fig. 5: Exploded view of the front axle assembly — 4wd models 86718031.gif

  8. Measure wheel bearing axial end-play. The wheel bearing end-play specification is 0.
  9. Install lock washer by tightening the lock-nut within 15–30 degrees.
  10. Turn wheel hub several times in both directions. Wheel bearing should be seated correctly.
  11. If necessary, measure wheel bearing preload. NOTE: Measure wheel bearing preload with a spring-type gauge; measure at wheel hub bolt, with tire removed. The hub assembly should rotate with 1.6–4.7 lbs. (0.73–2.13 kg) of pressure.

About an hour a side...This is the whole job and pictures....

The hub and wheel bearing unit is serviced as a complete assembly. Replacement of the front drive hub and bearing assembly can be done without having to remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle. However, if the hub/bearing assembly is frozen to the steering knuckle, removal of the steering knuckle is required.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the cotter pin from the end of the stub axle. Remove the nut lock and spring washer. With the brakes applied, loosen, but do NOT remove the axle nut and washer with the vehicle still on the ground or damage to the wheel bearing will result.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the wheel.
  4. Remove the front brake caliper assembly from the steering knuckle assembly and support from the strut assembly using a strong piece of wire.
    1. Remove the front brake rotor from the hub/bearing assembly.
    2. Remove the retaining nut and washer from the halfshaft stub axle.
    3. Remove the ABS wheel speed sensor from the steering knuckle.
    4. Remove the 4 hub and bearing assembly mounting bolts from behind the steering knuckle.
    5. Remove the hub and bearing assembly from the steering knuckle.
  5. To install:
    1. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the steering knuckle and the hub and bearing assembly of any foreign material or nicks so the surfaces are clean and smooth.
    2. Install the new hub and bearing assembly and tighten the mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern to 45 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Be sure the hub and bearing assembly is seated squarely against the front steering knuckle.
    3. Install the disc brake rotor.
    4. Install the brake caliper assembly onto the steering knuckle.
    5. Install the axle washer and nut. Tighten but do not torque.
    6. Install the ABS wheel speed sensor.
    7. Install the wheel and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in sequence, to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm).
    8. Lower the vehicle. Do NOT roll the vehicle until the axle nut has been properly torqued or damage to the front wheel bearings will result.
    9. With the vehicle's brakes applied, torque the axle nut to 180 ft. lbs. (244 Nm). Install the spring washer, nut lock and a new cotter pin. Wrap the cotter pin prongs tightly around the axle nut lock.
    10. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Check the wheel alignment.
