SOURCE: Rear Wheel Bearing Repair; 2005 pontiac aztek

Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

SOURCE: my 2004 pontiac vibe check engine light just came

There are to many things that can cause the check engine light to come on. Best thing to do is to go to Auto Zone and get the Car ecm scanned for the DTC codes which would indicate the issues to why the check engine light is on. It could be as simple as a bad gas cap and needs to be replaced and if that is the case, make sure your get one from the dealer and not a generic gas cap. It could also be a bad O2 sensor and Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the old O2 sensor with a new on with common tools and they do have that part for sale. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any more questions you may have.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Pontiac Aztek. The ABS brake light

hello i have a similar problem with my 2002 aztek the ABS light comes on only after my ABS system kick on when it is not suppose to (like normal braking conditions) i took it to be looked at at my local shop who also said it was a front hub having a bad wheel speed censor less than a week after having the work done the problem returned i took it back and they ran diagnostics on it for somewhere around 5 hr and could find nothing so they replaces the hub again.... no shocker here the problem isnt fixed still most recent time i had it in the tech said the problem is the cars computer is "loosing the wheel" he showed me where the main wiring harness runs right next to the oil pan along the bottom of the engine. the wires that go to the ABS control for that side are very swollen and the wires inside are loosing contact. they told me that i would have to replace the harness or live with the problem. after doing research the harness is no longer made and cost around $900 just for the part then u have to pay for the labor of someone putting it in
Hope this sheds some light on your problem

Testimonial: "Thanx for the feedback. I was told that it might be an electrical short somewhere within the wiring harrness however I questioned that if that was the problem, would it not occur right away intead of weeks after the hub replacement. I finally took it to my own mechanic and her stated that her did find the connection clip between the hub and the wiring harress had a loose prong so he tighted it. So far so good and I haven't experiend the problem since, however I am waiting for wet weather since the problem seemed to occur during during or right after a rain. Again thank for your help. "

SOURCE: how to replace front wheel bearing on an awd 2004

Hi, the front does not have a "wheel hub assembly". It is an individual sealed roller bearing that has to be pressed on and off the front spindle. It is a Toyota thing!
Take care

AWD Disable light on 2001 Pontiac Aztec- how do I get if off?


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Everyonce in awhile my antilock brake light comes on then it says awd disabled in my 01 pontiac azteck its not all the time but its reoccuring can you help me?


probably an abs module. problems with abs modules are generally caused by water intrusion/tear in insulation material. awd is disabled by central computer because of bad signal by abs module. probably happens within a day of driving through rain/water puddle. for possible other solution, try the trouble shooting section of the service manual.

My ABS light is on and its like the brakes are


Bring the vehicle into a repair shop ASAP. There are several things that can be wrong such as calipers master cylinder, module,fluid exhaust valves . ABS problems will affect AWD. So in all likelyhood once ABS problem is cleared AWD will be fine.

Abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix


You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.
