Question about 2003 Pontiac Aztek

Pontiac Aztek front wheel hub replacement

Need basic instructions for changing hub. Do you have to change both sides even if only one is affected. I have standard brakes, NOT ABS. I believe I saw on-line that there are different hubs for front and back wheels. Also difference for standard and ABS brakes. Is that correct ?
Am I better off cost-wise getting them from like an Auto Zone or Pep Boys type store or ordering on-line ?
Thanks for any and all help.

How do I get the front brake rotor off of a 2006 GMC Canyon 2 WD?


Tools Required:

Lug Removal Tool
Impact Gun(Recommended)
Sockets.. Lots of metric sockets
Ratchets
Wrenches
Porta Power(hydraulic piston) --- THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT... use to press hub off..
LOTS OF PATIENCE


Instructions:

1) Jack vehicle and support on jack stands.

2) Remove front tire.

3) Remove Front Brake caliper.. hang on frame using a bungee or other support
Important to not stress hose.

4) Remove brake pad support.

5) Remove 4 bolts from rear of hub.

6) Undo bolt for ABS sensorfrom frame, undo all clips holding wire.
Crawl under truckand unclip wire connector(trace wire from the ABS sensorto find it)

7) Make sure wire is unclipped from the frame and will not bind on removal of hub. (Prevents Damage of ABS sensor)

icon_cool.gif.pagespeed.ce.l5kzkvpb-u.gifTRICKY PART: Turn the wheels so that you can use the hydraulic porta-power against where the lower control arm mountsto the front. (Turn the
wheel left). Position porta-power to be placed inside dimple of the middle of the hub. DO NOT DAMAGE ABS SENSOR...
Pump Porta-power until hub "Pops".. be extremely careful removing the hub not to damage the ABS wireat all.. It is easy to break and not notice (I did
this and had to resplice it)

9) Hub should be removed from vehicle by this point and you can remove the six bolts holding the old rotor on. Still be careful not to damage the sensor.

10) Change the rotor. (do not use impact gun to reattach.. may strip threads)

11) Installation is basically reverse of removal.

12) Install brake pads, press caliper back in (typical brake job)

13) Put tire back on.. do other side.. and you're done.

Where is the abs plug on pontiac aztek


The sensors are made right into thee heel bearing hub assembly on this. The plug on the rear is right on the bearing assembly. The front you just follow the wire coming off of the hub. If you do have to replace this hub due to a sensor, don't get a cheap one to fix it. Those go out within about a year and then you just have a wheel bearing problem which is more dangerous than an abs issue.

If i pull out my abs fuse, will this affect any other part of my truck/ 2002 chevy tahoe


Your not even telling us what the problem is

I assume you had a bad wheel hub bearing assy
& changed it

Now you either got the wrong one or you want
to change the other one

If one is noisy & failed, the other won't be far behind,
so do both

None of that has anything to do with removing a fuse

How to change front wheel hub on a mk4 astra


Most hub assy's are just bolt off bolt on. You will need to suport car on stands, remove wheel, unbolt brake calliper but not the brake hose & move to side, remove disc, unplug abs sensor, unbolt hub from rear (3 or 4 bolts) Normaly 3 torx bolts on astras (funny looking heads) then reverse the procedure

How can you tell a wheel hub has gone bad


First get vehicle off ground make sure its supported good then with wheels off the ground see if any play in wheel see if moves up/down and side to side if any play or if when driving it makes a noise try swerving slightly side to side if noise changes the hub is going bad so when the noise stops it will be the opposite side that you turn so if you turn left no noise it will be on right side and so on hope this helps you
