Front wheel bearing 2000 GMC Safari

Need to know if i am capable of replacing the front driver side wheel bearing on this car myself or if i should just bring it in to the mechanic. I've done this before on other older cars however have never attempted this on a car as new as this one.

Yes is fairly easy job because the wheel bearing comes off whit the brake rotor just remove the brake caliper the rotor center cap the safety ping and the center nut on the brake rotor the hole thing will come off but "NOTE" you are going to need a new brake rotor because if the bearing was bad probably the rotor is bad to a new grease retainer seal and of course plenty of grease. Good luck :)

Need to replace brakes on 2000 GMC Safari. does it have disc brakes all around or drum rakse in rear?


Disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the rear. Make sure that you repack the front bearing's with wheel grease before finishing the job.If the front rotors and or the rear drums have a rough brake pad surface,get them resurfaced before installing new brake pads or brake shoes in the rear. you can go online or your public library for complete instructions on how to replace the brakes on that vehicle.

I have a 1993 GMC Safari that started making a strange noise from the front end I have taken it to 2 mechanics they both tell me that the problem is the wheel bearing. 1 says the bearing is in a sealed...


I just re-packed the front end bearings. Haynes covers the brakes real well, but not the bearings. Each front wheel has two bearings (one inside the wheel). So you have to remove the wheels, brakes, dust cap, grease seal and brake rotor to access the bearings. .
Expect to replace the grease seal because the rubber will be brittle or hard. Clean and inspect the bearings and races real well. If the bearings are squealing expect to replace some of them also.
Replacing the brakes so the pads stay in place is the trickiest part.

Hello, the front wheel bearings are not a servicable part. you have to replace the front hub bearing assemblies. here is a picture.

make sure you are bleeding them by doing them as an abs system,do the right rear then the left front,then the left rear then the right front,the opposite wheels are how the system brakes.
