1. Put the vehicle in gear, apply the parking brake and break loose the driveaxle/hub nut with a socket and large breaker bar.
2. Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support is securely on lackstands. Remove the wheel. Remove the driveaxle/hub nut.
3. Unbolt the brake caliper and hang it out of the way with wire. Remove the brake disc.
4. On models with four wheel ABS, trace the electrical lead for the wheel speed sensor along the upper control arm, then forward along the frame rail and unplug the electrical connector.
5. Remove the hub assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts. Remove the brake disc shield and wheel speed sensor assembly and set aside.
6. Tap the hub assembly from side-to-side to break it loose from the steering knuckle. Pull the hub assembly off the end of the driveaxle. Wrap the end of the driveaxle with a rag to prevent damaging it. If the hub is stuck on the splines on the end of the driveaxle, use a puller to free it.
7. Installation is reverse of removal process. Be sure to lubricate the driveaxle splines with multi-purpose grease, and tighten all of the fasteners to the proper torque.

How do I remove the front hub/wheel assembly? Hi there; I am attempting to replace the wheel bearing/ABS sensor assy on the front left of my 2002 GMC Yukon XL 1500 (*4-Wheel Drive*). So far, I have...


They are fitted very securely into the axle. It will come out as it is just splined onto the output shaft. The secret is equal pressure to the rear of the hub. Because of the close tolerances, it cant just be pulled from one spot on the hub as that jams the opposite side. Tap around the rear of the hub with a hammer in a circular pattern or use a 3 jaw puller to exert equal pressure.

Replacing the right wheel bearing how do u remove that hub do u need a special tool for it


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.

My 1984 GMC Jimmy has automatic hubs won't lock in, what do I do?


I use to sell these hubs everyday a decade ago. I had one customer buying up the cores so he could rebuild them. I asked what goes wrong with these and his reply was dirt mainly from lack of maintenance. They should be cleaned and regreased every year with new seals. Check you chevy dealer if seals are still offered

You probably have blown drive hubs. Do you have to engage the hubs at the wheels? If not and they are automatic locking and they are probably blown or seized into the unlock position. They are not too expensive to replace with manual locking hubs (My Suggestion) but the autolocking hubs are expensive. When you take the caps off the front drive spindles and try running it again you may see the axle turning inside but not the wheel. That is the best test. Wish you luck!!

How do I replace a lower balljoint on a 97 GMC Jimmy 4WD?


Unless you have some kind of a press to press the old one out and the new one in, better take and have it done.
Need to take the tire off
brake calipar and rotor and bracket off
take the 4wd locking hub assembly out
there is nuts and locking rings in there
pull the axel. Pull cotter pin from nut on ball joint stud, take off nut, separate ball joint from steering knuckle with seperator tool, then you need to press out the joint, sometimes the top joint has to be taken off too. It's a job, and you need the right tools.If you don't get the 4wd assembly back the same way, you have 4wd problems.

1989 4X4 SUBURBAN FRONT ROTORS


I have had a similar problem on my 82 Jimmy when I wanted to replace my 6 lugs (bolts) on the wheel. I guess, you have to remove the hubs to bring out the rotors. I myself searched on the net for a detailed pic, but did not succeed. I however saw my mechanic do it on mine. You need to carefully remove the pins, sleeves, springs etc. in the hub. Some clippings / locks / pins might seem hard to take out, but little inspection would make it easier. Some special tools such as a pointed tip plier might be required to release certain pins.

Anyway, best of luck :-)


By the way, I am having problems with my 4X4 lately. I got the lugs changed and the mechanic seems to have mis installed the hubs. Now I sometimes have a grinding sound underneath, a couple of times (even when 2 wheeling and hubs released), Today the wheels did not lock and I could not get out of sand. To my embarrassment, a land cruiser had to pull me out. Can some one help ?
