There is now specific toqure for wheel bearing nuts in general .
Its more of a feel thing bring it down slowly with no brake parts interfering when you rotate the rotor.You will fell it getting harded to turn .You want some restiance but not to much .
And I find a lot of times when the bearings have been replaced repacked you have to retighten them after a few thousand miles .
Its common sence the bearing has to be tight so the wheel isn't moveing side to side but it has to spin freely or the bearing will be distroyed .

SOURCE: How do I change a bearing in the right front

Yes it will be. The wheel bearing on this vehicle is a sealed bearing that is pressed into the knuckle. The knuckle will need to be removed from the vehicle and brought to a machine shop to have the bearing pressed out and the new one pressed in.

The knuckle is not difficult to remove. Separate the outer tie rod from the knuckle then the lower ball joint. Remove the axle nut. Remove the caliper and rotor, and then the knuckle to strut bolts.

It is really common for these to wear out the hub (the part with the wheel studs in it). You may be able to find a hub and bearing kit in the aftermarket or you may have to get a hub from the dealer. You won't know until the hub is separated from the bearing.

Once it is back together is is vitally important that the axle nut is torqued to the proper spec. Failure to do this will cause the new bearing to fail prematurely. I will also suggest getting a good quality bearing. Not necessarily the most expensive but one from a reputable supplier.

SOURCE: how to replace front wheel bearrings on a 2005 aveo

the front wheel bearings on this model are pressed into the knuckle. This means the knuckle will need to be removed from the vehicle and then brought to either a machine shop are a repair facility than can press the old bearing out and then press in the new bearing.

Removing the knuckle should be fairly self explanatory.
-Separate the tie rod from the knuckle.
-remove the brake caliper.
-remove the rotor.
-remove the axle nut.
-separate the lower ball joint from the knuckle.
-remove the drive axle from the hub.
-remove the knuckle from the strut.

It is very important that the axle nut be torqued to the proper spec once the bearing has been replaced. Failure to do so will result in the bearing failing prematurely. It is also advisable to get a bearing from a quality, reputable, manufacturer. This is not the time to shop with you check book but it also doesn't mean you need the most expensive one either.

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for using

Does not sound like a bearing problem...I suggest you check the spare..most vehicles with the air pressure devices have the in the spare also...Check your wheel lugs make sure they are check the bearing jack the vehicle up one wheel at a time and Check for play in the bearing..there should be zero play in and out up and down or side to side...if there is need to replace it..good luck..

How to replace a front wheel bearing chevy aveo

Once the Chevy aveo steering knuckle is removed, place the knuckle between 2 wood blocks and us e the correct size socket to pound out the hub and then do the same with the bearing. The bearing is in a 2" race shell with a roller bearing and seal on both ends. It can actually be pulled apart. Carefully pound the new bearing, then hub into the knuckle. Use the sockets if you have to.l Don't fret if the bearing comes apart. You can put it together when the shell is pounded in, before the hub is put in. The brass hub nut tightened to 221 ft lbs will tighten it all up. I did both sides of my Aveo with no problem.

Passenger rear wheel locked up, 2004 Chevy Aveo LS, person said parking brake was stuck.. coiuld it have frozen that way?

This also happened to my 2004 Chevy Aveo. The drivers side rear wheel locked up when it first got extremely cold in December 2009. I had to change the rear wheel cylinder because it broke. They also found the rear wheel bearing also had to be changed. GM charges $180 for 1 rear wheel bearing. To make matters worse I had to order the whole backing plate which came with the rear wheel cylinder and a whole bunch of hardware.
If you look in the GM manual it says that you should flush and change your brake fluid every 24 months. My mechanic told me that moisture normal wrecks the brake cylinder. I'm not sure what happened to the wheel bearing but from now on I'll make sure to flush my brake fluid every 24 months.

2004 Aveo sounds like a helicopter!!

I have been tricked by the wheel bearings many times. i had to invest into a chasis listening device so i could be more acurate in my diagnosis for my customers. what i am getting at is you probably had two bad bearings when you replaced the right one that was louder. the axle bearing is the wheel bearing wich now contains the hub too. make sure the axle nut has been torqued to the manufactures recommendations of "THEIR" part. 3 different manufacturers = 3 different torques. believe me i've had my suppliers send out two different make hub/bearings and had two different torque values. i like to use oem parts. Check to see if their is a bulletin or recall for those as they shouldn't have gone bad that soon unless you have a ton of miles on it.
Good Luck..........Scott
