I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.

SOURCE: Busted brake line

Usually goes to a junction block on the axle. Measure it when you get it out. You don't have to duplicate it exactly but make sure that it dosen't rub on anything when axle moves. If you can't get exact length, you can use brass couplers. If line fitting on either wheel cylinder or junction is rusted in, cut the line flush with the fitting and use a six point socket on it. Make sure you bleed system when finished. (not just one wheel)

SOURCE: i have a 2001 cavalier and the rear brakes keep

Was this problem there before you changed the Brake shoes. The cavalier has shoes on the rear.
It seems like the leaning show the SHORT one is not facing the front of the car where it should be. If you check the shoes one is shorter than the other in a set. Hope this works. Some model year Cavalier also had a problem with the Backing plate the plate the shoes attaches to.

SOURCE: 98 Cavalier Makes loud vibrating noise

sounds like another bad hub brg, jack up front end and check for play in wheels from top to bottom wiggle for movement. A loose wheel brg will set a front speed sensor code.

SOURCE: how do I replace broken wheel studs on the Front

The studs will plainly hammer out. Hit the threaded part till it will wobble. A hole on the back side of the hub will be there to pull the broken stud out. Replace it with a new one and use the lug nut to tighten in in. Stacking washers will help very much doing this process. If none are available have the wheel installed to get the studs in tight

How can I remove rear outer bearing?


New style bearings are all pressfit bearings, if your hub came right out of the bearing assembly, it is time for the whole assembly. The hub assembly has a locking ring that holds the outer bearing race inside the hub, after the wheel hub has been pressed out. Then, after the lockring has been removed it can be pressed out and the new bearing can be pressed back in and then the lockring reinserted. Then the wheel hub gets pressed in.

How do you remove a rear hub on a 04 kia sedona?


Call Kia with your VIN to make sure yours wasn't affected by the recall. You may be able to have that rear bearing replaced for free at Kia.

HUBCAP & OUTER BEARING REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE: 1. Remove the two (2) cross-tip locating screws on the brake drum.

2. Remove the brake drum.

3. Remove cotter pin and cover set.

4. Remove nut, claw washer, outer bearing and hub assembly.

5. Inspect inner bearing area in both hubs for any sign of moisture, corrosion, grease discoloration or contamination. If "yes" discard entire hub and replace with new assembly. If "no" proceed with outer bearing replacement below: 6. Carefully remove the outer bearing race from the hub. If the hub assembly is damaged then replace the hub assembly as a complete unit. (If inner seal is damaged while removing the outer race replace with new seal.)

7. Clean all contaminated grease from outer bearing cavity of the hub.

8. Install a new outer race into the hub using an appropriate race installation tool.

9. Apply grease MS511-33 WBG2 or equivalent to the hub assembly and the new bearing(s) especially to the shaded areas.

10. Install hub assembly, new pre-greased outer bearing and new claw washer on spindle. (Or alternatively, install entire new hub assembly, as supplied). Ensure bearings are properly seated then tighten hub/spindle nut, torque nut to 20-25 lb-ft (27-33 Nm.) Verify hub spins freely without signs of binding or excessive play.

11. Install new cover set and cotter pin; never reuse the old cotter pin.

12. Install new hub cap with Loctite # 5910(TM) or equivalent sealant to prevent moisture intrusion.

13. Install the rear brake drum using tapered locating screws.

14. Install rear wheels and torque lug nuts to proper specification. (65-79 lb-ft) (88-108 Nm, 9-11 kgm)

15. Lower vehicle.

What do you have removed? Did you remove the three bolts on the back of the hub? After these are removed, you can tap the rear of the hub with a mallet to gently knock it off of the spindle.

Can't remove rear brake drums


tap...not the wheel studs,the side face of the drum with 4 lb dead blow mallet which will release the drum from the hub. it takes 3 or 4 strikes to separate the two when its stuck to the hub ,once free it will slide right off.Heat,from a torch applied to to the cast iron drum around the stuck hub will work as well.

How to replace lug studs on 2002 chrysler town


I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.
