pop out the center trim piece with a flat head screwdriver. Center dash piece may be brushed aluminum or wood grain depending on trim level. It should pop out easily working all the way around it. Then radio is held in with 7mm screws.

SOURCE: remove rear seat impala2007

To remove the rear seat, pull up on the front of the seat bottom, it should be hooked in place by spring type clips. After you get the front edge up, pull out the seat. This should expose the bolts/screws that hold the seat back in. Look below and there should be a couple of screws holding the seatback to the car body. Remove these and then you can pull the seat back out of the car.

SOURCE: I have 2004 chevy impala that needs front wheel

Hi:
Usually the shop that does the alignment will check the status of all four wheels and tell you if they are in or out, before you pay. That was the case for me, when I had an alignment, when I bought new tires. My back tires were wearing ok, but the alignment was slightly off, so I had all four wheels lined up . The cost difference was slightly more than just a front alignment. If you are on a tight budget, then you could let the rear tire alignment go.

SOURCE: 2007 Impala rear tire wear due rear wheel spindle rods

Nick52284,
I have gone thru 3 sets of good tires now. Tires lasting from 10-12k miles before they hit cords. This is after the dealer does an alignment to spec. Funny thing is I have never seen the alignment specs from the dealer, I only get "aligned to spec". My wear is on the inside of the tires just as described in the police bulletin. I have tried different brands each time and get the same result (wear to the cords in 6 months or less). The bulletin only applies to the police version becasue GM doesn't want the bill for the thousands of ordinary customers repairs. There are enough complaints of this exact thing on any Chevy site that you can find. We aren't all nimrods.

You may be a guru, but I think you don't know what you are talking about.

WHAT IF ANY SPECIAL TOOLS ARE NEEDED TO REPLACE A REAR WHEEL BEARING ?


No.
The most you'll need is a big hammer or a air hammer to loosen the bearing from the spindle but just like changing a front bearing

2007 Chevy Tahoe sometime makes a noise on the right side of suv and when making a turn locks up and have to put in reverse and back to drive to get it to move


Wheel bearing totally shot, replace the wheel bearing. Might have to replace the spindle as well, because when the bearing locks up, it forces the outer part of bearing to spin, damaging the spindle.

Im look for the name of the bar that hold rear the wheel in place


There are 3 rods in the rear that attach to the rear knuckle, two that run side by side. The one closest to the front of the car is the front spindle rod, and the other is the rear spindle rod. The bar that runs from the back toward the front is the rear trailing arm. I hope this helps.

Need to replace steering arm on pass side on 1998


Your description leads me to believe that the spindle is bent. This is the piece that the tie rod attaches to near the wheel. Sometimes the tie rod is attached to a piece that attaches to the spindle which is rather intuitive. Just remove the tie rod end, unbolt the arm that attaches to the spindle and replace the arm. In this case the only special tool you'll need is a tie rod seperator.

If the arm is a part of the spindle and cannot be removed easily:

1) Put vehicle in park and safety brake on - chock the rear wheels
2) Lift passenger side front wheel and put on jack stands
3) Remove wheel and have a friend apply brake pressure
4) Loosen hub nut with appropriate socket (22 to 35mm)
You can purchase the socket from your local auto parts store
You'll need a large breaker bar, its torqued to about 100ft-lbs
5) Remove tie rod end with a tie rod/ball joint separator
This can also be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Some spindles are made with tie rod end permanantly attached
If it is removable, remove nut and drive the separator tool
between the tie rod and spindle using a large hammer.
It'll eventually break free from the spindle.
6) Remove the strut with a strut spring compressor tool
WARNING - THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS
This can be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Compress spring before removing lower bolts (2 of them).
The strut may be left on vehicle but the spring must be
compressed.
7) Remove caliper and break assembly
Loosen the two slide bolts that go through the caliper assembly
Remove caliper and breaks - let it hang by the tubing
8) Detach upper and lower ball joints with seperator tool as in #5
9) Finally remove the hub nut from #4
The spindle should slide off the axle
10) Repair or replace the spindle and put it all back together in
reverse order using new wheel bearings. Pack them with axle
grease if theyr'e not the sealed type.

NOTE: The tie rod end may need to be replaced also. The vehicle will need a front end allignment. Be sure to torque the hub nut to the manufacturers specifications - at least 75ft-lbs. You should probably replace the wheel bearings.
