Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy
Need to know how to remove and replace rf wheel bearing?
I think you must replace the entire hub assembly. You need a shop manual to do this correctly.

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 :)

is it a 4x4? the wheel bearing comes with a new hub assembley . Just find out what size the front half shaft nut/ lock nut/axle nut- is. its probably a 33mm thats the only special tool you will need. Unscrew it, take your outer tie rod off the spindle/steering knuckle, theres 3 bolts behind it, take them off then disconect the abs harness and pry out the old hub assembley use a rubber hammer (dead blow hammer) to tap the half shaft out if seized. when installing the new wheel bearing see your manufacturer specs. for torquing the axle nut back on.

Remove the axle nut. Put a punch in the fins of the rotor to keep the hub from spinning. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Unplu the abs harness. Remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. Remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. Reverse to install. Make sure you torque the three bolts that hold the bearing to the knuckle and the axle nut to the correct torques spec. Failure to do so will cause premature bearing failure. Also use a good quality bearing. SKF is a good brand. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
