Replace front hub assembly 2002 Suzuki XL7

the front wheel bearing hub?
XL-7 (the dash matters)
my wild guess, is the questions was
what are all steps to do this job. and tools.
the link shows all years, and variances.

here is a photo review, that is accurate up to
1998, and beyond , if you skip the bearing service parts. as yours are INTEGRATED
and NON-serviceable.

the photo 6a and B
shows removing the hub,
so do that , buy a new hub and put it back
the same way, using the tool stated
at the stated ranges of torque
123-180 ft/lbs.
this range allows you to get the screws into the locking rings.

Need To no what size bearing puller I need to use to replace my right hand side bearing for a 2001 grand vitra 2.5litre and how to do it .

no end of car stated, now that makes this impossible
but ill guess front. and guess 2 , 4wd ,?????????
and at what step in process you got stuck>????

all that , just all that..
all that is in the FSM, ever heard off a factory service manual.
or this.
$4 bucks to look.
before buying $500 suzuki tools, be it known , generic tools work.

the wheel bearing
ill paste some clues.
I have a printed FSM. (and all above)
here is the factory page

the bearing are never replaced in this car, you replace the whole hub.
that is how its done. if you want to break the rules.
then you get to work blind, what bearings are there, , its not publish.
then you get to find that out, and then find a shop to presses them in
and after all that ,its 5x the cost of a hub.

see end of this page for GV front hubs

see the list of complex options there. see that.?
2wd, 4wd,?
my guess is yours is 4wd, guess 2.
and uses photo 10 there.

see grapic 10 ,see part id 11?
you pull that off with any slide (slam) hammer made.
then remove the looking ring with special tool used by suzuki
since 1989
then the hub falls off. or if in salt belt,(wiki that)you again
use the slide hammer and bam its off

Pit fall 1,
if you fail to set the nut ring 11 to 156 (or to spec) foot/pounds torque
the bearing will fail in 1000 miles.
see TIMKEN bearing tests proof of that fact, it is a fact.
for all CRUSH bearings.....

How to replace front hub & bearings

You were probably told that because when the wheel bearings go out, a lot of people and shops will just replace the hubs, either new or from a salvage yard, with the bearings already installed (pressed into the hubs). Some models, I think, may not even sell the bearings separate. But since you can buy the bearings alone, that may be the best route for you. That, or the salvage hubs route. If you go with new bearings, you can take off the hubs yourself, and take them with the new bearings to a shop to have them pressed in for a nominal fee. It will save you some serious labor repair costs.
Good luck.

2001 monte carlo ss. Rear wheel bearings making a grinding noise

It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.
